37 weeks and ITCHING for delivery!

August 28th, 2008

It is Thursday, August 28 and today marks Joshua reaching full term, meaning that he can safely come any time now.  Crisi feels pretty confident that he is a “September baby” and won’t be making his appearance until after Labor Day, but there are certainly skeptics among our family and friends.   They might be right if she keeps pushing herself like she has been.  For instance, she mowed the lawn yesterday in the 85 degree heat.  I’m pretty sure all the neighbors think I’m quite a slave driver after seeing her out there.

We’re very anxious to meet the Jellybean and Crisi is literally ITCHING to have him out of her.  Her belly itches all the time as her skin is stretching to accomodate his growing size and movement into the birth canal.  She’s using every lotion, oil, body butter and cold pack she can get her hands on to try to alleviate the itch, but sometimes it just seems like a losing battle.  But that appears to be the most major complaint, so I think we’re in good shape.

The tests they do at the specialist’s office twice a week are all consistently coming back perfect and he looks like a healthy, active baby.

As we get down to these last few days and weeks, we’re getting the camera out more and more.  I’ve posted some pictures of our recent day trip around some of our favorite haunts in Saint Augustine, as well as a couple of Crisi’s belly around the house.

We hope you all are doing fantastic and we’ll continue to update more frequently as we get closer to the big day!
