Only 6 weeks to go!!

Yesterday marked 34 weeks for Mr. R.A.P!!! That means now only 20 days to go before he is considered full term. He is starting to cause his mom some pain now that he is getting bigger. I was concerned about the ache that I have been feeling in the right side of my ribs in the back. I brought it up to my Dr and she assured me it is totally normal. I haven't found too much that helps to relieve it but I will push through b/c I know that as soon as he is born it will go away. I had an u/s done just to check and see how he was positioned and he was head down with little feet in my ribs (guess that would be what explains the pain). He still has plenty of room yet to grow but most likely he will now remain in the head down position. According to the Dr very few babies flip once they get in that position at this stage.

His room is all ready for him now and it looks so cute. I need to go through all Ethan's 0-3 month clothes and get out all the onsies and also go through and see what we have as far as warm clothes. I have a friend who is holding her sons clothes for me. He was born end of Oct so they would be for the right season. Ethan was wearing 3-6 months by Oct/Nov and he was about 8 or 9 pounds at that time so I have a feeling most of Ethan's clothes will fit this baby. Already R.A.P is close to 5lbs so he is going to be a good sized baby at birth. I am getting anxious now and am so excited that soon I will be meeting him and holding him. It's going to be a great holiday season this year that I get to share it with my 2 beautiful boys and Matt.
