Chickapea Strikes Again

"Woah, sweet Jesus"

Poor Mom is slowing down- she's now at 36 weeks and in her words, "It has been a much tougher pregnancy than Ronan's." As a witness to both pregnancies I can say that I have even greater sympathy for Mom during this one. It's been trying, but she's almost there.

Wednesday we had a surprise visitor- Auntie She (always a favorite) dropped by and marveled at just how impressive Mom's tummy has become. Chickapea did not disappoint; s/he moved around quite a bit and several times made Mom gasp for air.

The look on their faces says it all...

Last night Mom suffered quite a bit- she claims that Chickapea changed position and it felt like s/he rearranged Mom's internal organs in the process. As Mom is already dilated 1 cm and 50% effaced, Chickapea is likely to be with us before the second week of April (the official due date).

Sure gives meaning to the Biblical phrase "great with child"! Love Uncle Todd's comment (above). I think Melissa just plain fainted.
Hang in there, Mom, Chickapea will be here soon and in about 5 years you'll look back at these last few weeks and smile... I think.
