36 1/2 weeks.
On Thursday, I will have four weeks to go until my due date! It's weird the things you think about...oh there is the usual like wondering how nursing will go, will the cat get along with the baby, when do I start the baby on solid food and what do I feed it. Then there are the weird things like: I don't know how to take care of a penis; I've never had one. There can't be anything to it...it's just one more thing to clean, but there it is. Or: I wonder if the umbilical cord stump will look like the goat's ears before they fell off. Really, these things are nonsensical and have no bearing on properly caring for a child. I can't wait to not be pregnant. Minus the discomfort, it hasn't been all that unpleasant...but I'm anxious to see this little boy that's been growing inside of me. I'm nearly full term and I certainly don't want him to come before he's able to thrive on his own, but if he comes early....as long as he is healthy....I would NOT be disappointed.
