The major changes in our life have not affected Lulu as far as we know. Since I was laid off from Deloitte, July 24th, I have started working on “nesting” and getting the house ready for her arrival. We are meeting with Doula’s, interviewing pediatricians and have sold the bedroom furniture (I hope.) I am really looking forward to spending some quality time at home, resting and organizing. Everyone keeps telling me that this is for the best–but it is still hard to think that I need not drive 1 1/2 hours to Deerfield in the heart of rush hour anymore.

In the meantime, Lulu is growing well and I am measuring at 33 inches (I should be at 31) which is the larger side of normal but is still considered as normal. My target weight gain is 1/2-1 lb per week. Thus far, I am doing well. My blood pressure is great and I am still practicing my pre-natal yoga. Adam and I have new parents’ classes tomorrow at Northwestern. That should be interesting.
