Any guesses?

I think everyone knows that Batman is scheduled to join us on June 14th.  However, there are still a lot of things that no one knows: Name, birth time, weight, etc.  Does anyone care to take a few guesses?

Take a stab at guessing the following.  Also, since we don't have a name picked out yet any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Time of birth:
Eye color:
Hair color:

Uncomfortable in my own skin

I must admit, except for my first trimester migraines and my heart palpitations I have been fairly lucky during this pregnancy.  Up until the last few days, I was relatively comfortable the majority of the time.  Yes, I had basic pregnancy complaints (edema, swelling, constant trips to the bathroom, etc) plus my share of special to me discomforts (see above migraines and heart palpitations) but I was really doing fairly well.  For the last 4 weeks I've been walking between 4-8 miles almost every single day.  I've been cooking and eating healthier for the last 9 months than I have in a long long time.  Unfortunately, now that I am in the final stretch of this pregnancy (4 days to go!!) I am extremely uncomfortable all the time.  I won't bore myself by running through the my list of discomforts because I'm not alone, most women go through this.  But man oh man I just needed to take a moment to complain and say - I'm tired of being uncomfortable.

5 days to go

It's been a very very long time since I've updated this blog.  With 5 days to go until Batman makes her arrival, I'm not sure how much more I will update about the pregnancy.  I do plan to upload a few more pictures of the belly so you can see how much she's grown in the last few weeks... soon.   I swear!

The last few weeks have been pretty rough.  My body is no longer cooperating with me and I am very very uncomfortable all the time.  B's been pretty uncomfortable too, and no it's not couvade syndrome.  Rather, B has been doing the 100 push ups in 6 weeks program!  He was all set to complete the 6 week program before Batman arrived but between his getting both a stomach flu and a nasty cold in the last 5 weeks he probably won't get to 100 push ups before Monday.  Depending on whether or not he still participates in the program in the next two weeks I definitely think he will reach his goal by the end of June.  I'm crossing my fingers for him!
