Today marks the 6 week mark to my due date with little boy Shelby. I decided I would start a countdown and have a post each week until he arrives letting you know of any progress or happenings.
As of today, there is not any real news. I am feeling pretty good except that I stay really tired. He seems to be pressing down on my pelvic bone which is causing a little discomfort. I have some swelling in my feet and ankles which has occurred in a couple of my other pregnancies however it doesn't seem to be quite as bad as the others.
I will go see my midwife next week and I will have the Group B Strep test done and then start my weekly visits. This test has always been negative and I pray that it continues that way.
We have no names for our little man as of yet so feel free to share some cool name ideas that may go with our family. Here are the names of our children: Cade, Ian, Tate, Cai, Abram, Emma, and Sarah.
BTW, Emma ask me almost daily if she can go with me to get her baby brother out. This is so funny because none of the boys have been like this with my pregnancies. She is ready to hold him so I told her she can hold him when he comes out. She says OK and gives a big smile. I think she is going to be a good helper!
