So here goes, weeks 30 through 40, and almost 41! Everyone I know, including my doctor was certain this baby was going to come early - everyone but Chris. He'd been talking about taking a beach trip as a sort of last hurrah with just the two of us, but because I was terrified of going into labor several hours from home and either having the baby in another city or laboring for several hours in the car on the way home, we stuck pretty close by. About two weeks before my due date, we decided to take a weekend trip to Greensboro, NC since it's only 2 hours south. Then we came home and waited... and waited and waited and waited.
The nursery, it turns out, was completed in plenty of time, I craved sugar more than ever the further along I got in my pregnancy, I never once had a stranger rub my belly (so the warnings were moot), I never did experience the dreaded morning sickness - all in all, my pregnancy was absolutely amazing and I wish it could've lasted longer!
