I'm back!

Hi Everyone!

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.

Hey lady, glad you're back! I was wondering what you were up to :-) How come on maternity leave already? Everything ok? Or is this just one of those cool Canadian things where you get a lot of time off? I'm so moving to Canada...

It's a Canadian thing Kate. We can take up to 1 year off from work and get our same job back. Plus we get up to 50 weeks of benefits from the gov't. Plus, I don't think I could stand to be there much longer anyway. I love my job, but I was so done working! Now the goal is to sleep in as much as possible and get the house organized for baby.
