Every week for the past 33 or so I've taken a picture to map the little one's progress. While I've not been sharing them online, I thought today's might be a good one. Why? Because today is the important 37 week milestone! Now, I could totally get into a lengthy conversation about how that isn't technically right, but it doesn't matter. As far as the doctor's office is concerned, the parasite is 37 weeks 'old' today and has reached Full Term! That means that, while we'd prefer she 'bake' at least another two weeks if not three or four, she could arrive at any moment and not be considered a preemie.
For those of you who celebrate these things, today is also Ash Wednesday. You might remember that last year, I gave up sweets and added steps every day to my walking regemin. This year, neither of those seem practical (well, giving up sweets might be practical, but no one is going to hold a pregnant lady to that). Instead, I've decided to strongly limit my facebook time and to be more intentional with the time saved through that. Will that mean more blogging here? I expect so. I expect (and hope) that it also means more time reading books, more time devoted to keeping up my commitments, and in a few weeks, more time devoted to staring at a sweet little face. I'll try to share that with y'all, too!
P.S. J is giving up meat and cokes. Pray for us both! :)
