The baby has dropped. I can breathe more easily (good) but there is a lot more pressure on my lower belly and pelvis and BLADDER (not so good). I don't mind too much though because this means that things are on track and I'm almost done being pregnant. I decided this past week to stop complaining about all the pregnancy-related aches and pains, so whenever I wince or show some other evidence of discomfort, Chris and I just look at each other and say "Six weeks to go."
It's definitely getting to be that time. Four more weeks of work, no more out-of-town trips, and five-ish weeks till my first live-in doula arrives. I feel very peaceful and ready for what lies ahead.
