30 days?

As of today I am 35 weeks and 4 days pregnant, and only have 30 days until my due date!  I cannot believe it!

here is me at work yesterday
I don't think many people expected a pregnant
lady to greet them at REI lol
Other than my little episode at the hospital on Saturday night, things have been going great!  I feel really good, despite the random contractions I've been having all the time.  Lots of pelvic discomfort, pressure and occasional pain, but definitely could be feeling a lot worse.  I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how great I feel, and hope it continues.

His favorite activity is to see how long he can stretch out his legs, pushing his feet against one side of my belly and his bum against the other, which isn't the most comfortable for me.  But other people love to feel his little feet protruding from one side of my belly or the other (and of course I do too).  He does this all day long, along with other general "floaty" movements.  It's pretty obvious that he has dropped and has also run out of space to do any bigger movements, but he's still very active all day every day.

Saturday I will be 36 weeks, and he will supposedly be nearly 6 lbs and about 18 1/2 inches long, according to Baby Center.  I believe it about the 18 1/2 inches; it feels like he's longer, since he's always wanting to stretch out further and further.  I can't wait to see what he looks like and what all his proportions are when he's born!

At my appointment today, my midwife Barbara said that he had dropped and that she thought he was closer to 7 lbs than to 6lbs...which should surprise me, but it doesn't.  She said if he goes to 40 weeks she expects a nice 9 lb baby. I'm hoping to get him out while he's in the 8lb range, but we'll have to wait and see what happens!
