Sara and baby No. 2 looked perfectly healthy during their 36-week checkup this week.
Sara did get some rather unsettling news, however. Doc told her that with just more than a month left until her Feb. 19 due date, and the way the baby was positioned, she might have to pee more frequently 😉
I wasn’t with her at this particular checkup, but I’m guessing she gave doc one of those “how in the hell is it possible to pee more often than I already do?” looks.
So goes our life headed into the final stretch.
I was watching television in bed last night as Sara slept. She woke up at 10 p.m., 11 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. to make a trip to the master bathroom. “I don’t get how I even have anything in me,” she moaned. I’m not sure either, but it’s hard not to chuckle. I just make sure she doesn’t see me doing it.
Jackson knows there’s a baby in Sara’s belly, though he sometimes points at it and says, “ball.” It’ll be interesting to see how he manages not being the center of attention with a tiny little one around permanently.
Since we won’t be going outside to play anytime soon, Jackson and I have been busy making some videos of him making trick basketball shots around the living room and dining room into his Fisher Price hoop. I’m thinking of making a highlight reel after we get 15 or 20 different ones.
In other news, we have or list of girls’ names dwindled down to two or three, though I think there’s one we both agree on. No, we’re not going to share those names. However, we don’t have much time left to agree on a boys’ name. Have any suggestions? Take a look at this list and let us know if there’s one you love.
I’ll keep you posted in the coming weeks about how Sara is doing or if she’s broken the record for restroom breaks at her school. // JS
