Getting braver with each trip to the pool...

We went to the pool today - I sure wish I had my camera...Connor decided to wear goggles and was ALL over the place, under water, having a ball!
I am now 5 weeks away from having a baby, so I sat in a chair next to the pool - MUCH more comfy than the concrete! I would have gotten in, but its been a bit chilly here this summer, and, well, that water is coolddd! So I opted to keep my VERY pregnant self in the chair while Connor and his sisters played.
They get too brave too fast. I swear I felt I was going to have to jump in after him any second, but he did great. What a great thing to see!
Now, I'm pooped. :) Doctor said all looks good - blood pressure was a bit high for me - 130/70 - my typical is 108/60 or something like that...but still not high compared to the standard, so she wasnt concerned. No swelling to talk about, just a big baby belly! :)
I'm ready, I tell ya. Very ready. Not ready work-wise. I need to get quite a few things done, but mentally and physically, I'm ready.
Ready for my body back. Ready to get myself back into shape. Ready to meet Miss Libby.
Not my call though, is it? So I'll wait...patiently. (RIGHT!!!!!!)
