Preggy Brain...Turned to Mush... Can't Think of a Good Title

I am 33 weeks, just over a month to go. I mean really, I could have this baby in a month. ACK!! I had my latest midwife appt on friday. After she palpated my belly, she asked if I was sure of my conception date. Yes, I am. Within a day or two. Why do you ask? This baby is as big as one of the other women who is due this month. WHAT? She typically has between 4-6 lb babies. She has estimated that this baby is about 5lbs already. And if he continues on his current weight gain that means I'll have a potentially 8 lb baby, if he stays in there to the end. Good grief!! Well at least he's growing well. I had a gestational diabetes test and it was good, so I don't have to worry about that. And that was even after eating two peanut butter balls. Oh my goodness!! My bff and her hubby came this weekend and she brought these things. They are so addicting. If I get the recipe I'll share it with you. Divine!!

We all went hiking (easy, well the brochure said easy) and swimming at a local state park. It was very nice. I did very well, thank you, for being 8 months pregnant and anemic. Oy. Here are a few pics of all of us.

We are still waiting on the window people to come and measure the windows. I am so so scared God is going to do one of His things where the windows get put in the day before I go into labor. I mean, I realize the vast majority of women go to the hospital these days to have their babies, but, well, we are not planning on it. I really don't want to be vacuuming up dust and having contractions inbetween. But hey, maybe it will help the labor. Who knows?

We have been harvesting lots of goodies from our garden. I just picked a load and I mean a load of green beans from the garden for the second time in 4 days. They are prolific. And good. I have some leftovers from supper, maybe I'll heat them up. And we have zucchini coming out our ears, not to mention squash. I have been making so much zucchini stuff it's not funny. But hey, it keeps ya regular!! I have made zucchini brownies, zucchini cupcakes, zucchini cake, grilled zucchini, steamed, layered zucchini (which is like a zucchini lasagna, really good! Hubby loved it!) and that's all I can think of right now. We are getting some tomatoes, just a few here and there. But I can see it now, all of those green ones coming in all at once.

My little girl is turning three tomorrow. She is so healthy and vibrant. I thank God everyday for her health. There are so many children who struggle with illnesses and I thank God for Nadia's continued health. Her grandparents are coming up tomorrow and saturday we will be having a party. It's going to be cooler, so I guess no swimming in her birthday pool (poo), but we have sidewalk chalk, balloons, coloring, nail painting, book reading, pizza making, necklace making among other things to keep us busy. (I do not want to have down time with 5 little girls. Whose idea was it anyway to invite them all?) But it will be good, Nadia loves these other little girls and will have a blast. I'm sure it will be hard to get her to sleep saturday night.

I did get the recipe for those wonderful peanut butter balls, but I want to make them to give you an idea of what they look like. Project for today.....

Hey girl! Don't be afraid of an itty bitty 8-pound baby! I had a 9-pounder and did just fine. Since you've already had one baby, you shouldn't have any trouble at all.

Sorry you won't get to use the pool. Unless you want to boil some pots of water to warm it up a bit. At least it sounds like you'll have plenty of other things to do. Have fun and happy THIRD birthday to your sweet little girl!!!
