100 days

I have 100 days left until my due date. Which means I'm hoping that I have about 90 days left until I deliver.

I feel down the stairs yesterday. It was a little scary. I slipped, my feet came out from under me and I slid until I hit the ground with a thud. It knocked the wind out of me, and my back really aches, but other than that, I seem to be ok and the baby's still pretty active.

So, I think I wrote in a journal entry a day or two ago that we had decided on a name. Strike that. We're back to the drawing board.

We still have a lot to do . . . for the baby, for camp and for school! While 100 days seems like it's still a LONG time, it'll go by pretty quick. I still have a pretty nasty cough I'm trying to get rid of. I cough so hard that I worry sometimes that I'm hurting this little guy, but everything I read assures me that he can hear me cough but it doesn't harm him at all.

I read this week that if you play music for your baby, it helps to soothe him after he's born. I have headphones on my belly and was playing the classical music from my itunes library. I noticed that he was kicking a lot, so I looked to see what was on and realized that I was playing Carmina Burana for him. Talk about a non-soothing piece of music. We've moved on to Scheherazade. :)
