The Baby Dropped!
I'm pretty sure the baby dropped this weekend. It seems a little early since I'm just in my 33rd week, but according to everything I've been reading, it's not unheard of. It's kinda nice cause I can eat a full meal again and chocolate without getting heartburn. I can see this as being a big weight gain month for me!!! But, the bad points are it hurts to stand for long periods of time and I have to pee every 5 minutes. I'm also thinking she's coming early. I've read plenty online about people who had the baby drop at 32 weeks and still didn't deliver until 40 weeks, but I've also read on just about every pregnancy site that the baby drops 2 to 4 weeks before birth (Val, you just may be here for the birth!). She'd be term by then so it's fine, but I still feel like I have so much more to do before she gets here. I've been making lists of everything I need to do and it seems a bit overwhelming. I did get pre-registered at the hospital today so that's one thing off the list and about 50 more to go. A lot of the list is buying things and I think I'm going to babies r us tomorrow with a friend so I'll be able to get a lot of that stuff crossed off the list.
