Oh My How "He's" Grown!

Today at my doctor's appointment my doctor told me that I have a sceptis (not sure on the spelling). Basically it's a piece of muscle in my uterus that hangs down from the top- in some women it can completely connect leaving 2 separate sections. Mine isn't connected but she did say it can make it difficult for the baby to turn once he gets bigger. Which means, there's a good chance I'll have to have a c-section if he hasn't moved before he gets too big. We obviously won't know more until I'm further along. I'm not sure how I feel about that though. Any thoughts from you experienced birth-givers?

I can't believe I'm already in my 6th month. I gained 10 lbs since my last visit. Yikes! I guess I have been eating more sweets. But to my credit the baby really has grown over the last couple of weeks too. I just need to lay off the sugar and keep swimming. My doctor wasn't concerned since I had only gained about 4 lbs since I first went in. So no harm, no foul, right?! I hope so. :)

I'm feeling very large these days but things are moving along. We are planning to paint the main wall in the baby's room in week or so. Then we'll be able to put up the crib (got it on sale at Target), put up the curtains, and put the bedding on once we get the mattress and I think the room will be mostly done.

I can't say I'm real excited for the summer. I'm already so hot and usually have my fan at work on the minute I get to work. But hey, whatever gets me through the day... like ice cream, snow cones, pie, slurpees.... gee, I think I know where those extra pounds have come from!
