I must say that I've missed you all. The sad fact is that my hand hurts so much by the end of the day that I tend to avoid anything on the computer. However, I am now officially on maternity leave so I should be able to update more often. I have been doing my best to keep my pregnancy journal up to date.
The doctors are still monitoring me closely because our baby is measuring small. I personally think that they are investing too much time and effort into this. I was a small baby and it stands to reason that my baby will be small as well. He's growing and developing, and is really active so why worry? Plus, I would much rather deliver a smaller baby than a huge baby!
Today the baby weighs roughly 2.4 kg (or just over 5 lbs). So, with 3 more weeks until my due date, and possibly longer until I deliver, I'm guesstimating that he will be a 7 pounder - just like me!
All is good.

I'm sorry that my blogging frequency has dropped to nearly nothing. I have developed a new side effect from this pregnancy: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This makes typing very, very painful so naturally I save my suffering for the office.
Now that I got that out of the way, let me get on with what inspired me to blog through the pain.
I had another very, very, very strange dream last night. Very strange. I was on my way to my baby shower and stopped off to pick up my grandma on the way. Not my 96 year old living grandma, my other grandma who passed away 10 years ago. And I wasn't driving. I was on foot, and cutting through a strange neighbourhood while pushing my grandma across strangers' lawns.
We arrive at the shower and it's a full house. Apparently my hosts had asked everyone to bring a Xmas ornament with "2010" on it. The first gift that I open is from The Situation. Yes, you read that right, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was a guest at my shower. He bought me a snow globe. The next gift was from Ronnie - apparently the Jersey Shore has come to Canada! Ronnie actually gave me the best gift: a $5000 gift card from the bank! Did you know that the banks had gift cards? Me neither.
Can you guess whose gift I opened next? Yup, you're right. "Snookie" was also there. She got me a gigantic Xmas tree ornament shaped like a pickle.
And then we got on with the rest of my shower - which was more like a typical shower. Lots of baby gifts in both pink and blue.
I'm completely at a loss at how the Jersey Shore infiltrated my dream. I haven't watched an episode in over a week (maybe longer), and as far as I know none of them have been arrested recently.
