Now that I am almost in the mommy club, some of its members are starting to reveal their secrets to me. For instance, yesterday I learned how to drink in public at kid's events (fundraisers, games, birthday parties, etc).
A dead give-away (so I'm told) is any mom with a Sonic to-go cup. Yeah, that's not just cherry lime-aide in there. True story.
I was just chatting with a couple of our Indian developers today and they told me that a law was passed in India preventing doctors from telling patients the sex of their babies. The reason is that if it's a girl, many people might opt to abort. oh my!
We had a great doctor's appointment this morning, and one thing we know for sure is that there will be no baby this week. Nothing is showing signs of impending labor, which is fine since we're only 36 weeks.
Good news is that the baby is measuring perfectly for how far along we are. He/she is a little over 6 pounds now and is expected to be close to 8 pounds at birth. A good healthy baby size.
Apparently I have "child bearing hips" because the doctor said I'll have no trouble getting this kid out and I could even handle a 9-pounder just fine. Good to know. Who knew?!
Thanks "groupies" for hosting the best baby shower ever! We loved the theme, the food, the cool baby things, and the friends. You guys mean the world to us. Here is a picture of me with you all. If you can't pick me out, I'm the one with the big butt (just ask D-Rex).
So, I'm not a blogger. This is my first time. But it seems that this is the thing to do when you have a baby, and family doesn't all live close, and you don't want to send out annoying "look at my kid" emails to everyone in your address book every week. So I'll give blogging a try, and if my friends and family care what we're up to they can come check the site, and if they don't care...well, then don't. It's all good.
The Raudababy, as the baby has been dubbed, is not due for another four weeks so stay tuned here for updates, photos, etc. I hear this is going to be the ride of our lives. Where's my seat belt.
