"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."
It's been a few weeks since a last posted. Life has been busy busy busy!! The holidays were wonderful but draining. I'm now 34 weeks pregnant with less than 6 weeks to go...I'm miserable. I know longer remember what it feels like to sleep for eight hours straight without getting up to go to the bathroom four times a night. Plus, I've watched so much late night TV because I can't sleep I'm pretty sure I'm going to turn into an infomerical.
As for baby, I'm giving birth to a large ham :). We went for another ultrasound on Wednesday and baby was measuring at 36 weeks and 6 days...3 weeks ahead of schedule. He's 6 lbs 9 oz according to the ultrasound and growing rapidly. The doctors are thinking C-Section if he continues to grow because they worry about crushing his shoulders as he travels through the birth canal. I've been having Braxton Hicks on and off all weekend, and some cramping. I'm not sure if I'll make it long enough for a C Section...lol :) I also passed my 3 hour glucose test so no gestational diabetes for me...yay!!!
I'm ready to have this baby and looking forward to the new year. I'm looking at different challenges, none of which I'll probably complete with a newborn but its still exciting. There's so many motivational ones out there, and I have so many books I can't wait to read!
As for these past few weeks, I read one book in between the Christmas shopping and family visiting. I finished Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot which I loved, and I've been working on Size 14 is Not Fat Either. I haven't read a lot of Meg Cabot and I'm really enjoying her!
I'm not making any reading goals for the next week, because I don't know what the week holds! Happy reading everyone and enjoy your new year!!
