35 weeks

I haven't been very good about blogging about Baby Dos.  In fact, I feel like I haven't done very much at all for this baby.  Poor second baby.  He's so going to have a complex.  Here we are about a month away and we still haven't decided on a name.  We've just been calling him Bacon.  I like it.  Even once he's given a proper name, we may still call him Bacon.
When I was pregnant with Eggy, I took belly pictures every week.  I signed up for those weekly pregnancy newsletter.  This time, no pictures at all.  Sometimes, I don't even know how far along I am.  When people ask, I just tell them I'm due in April.  I don't know if it's because it is the second child or because I'm lazy.  Probably both.
Ugh, is it because I'm older now or is it because I have a toddler to look after?  But this pregnancy is definitely more tiring.  I think I've gained the same amount of weight as last time but I just feel so much more uncomfortable.  My back is killing me.  But at the same time, I'm not in any hurry to get this baby out.  Because I know it's going to be a lot harder once he's here.
I had a dream a little while ago.  It's the only baby related dream that I've had for this pregnancy.  In my dream, I was getting an ultrasound, except it was like a video of the baby.  Anyway, he was huge.  Faaat.  He already had rolls on his arms and legs and a big belly.  He had chinky eyes and he was bald.  He looked like Buddha.  I remember I only had two baby dreams when I was pregnant with Eggy and that was that she was a girl.  And look how that turned out!  I really do not want to be having a 12 pound baby, even if I am having a c-section.
Speaking of, Bacon's official eviction day is April 8.  Yup, Easter!  Unless of course, he decides to come early which I bet he will.  Things never go according to plan.  The night before Eggy's birth, I jinxed us by saying to the hubby that I would end up giving birth on April 1 via c-section.  I was only supposed to go in that day so they could check my progress but they ended up keeping me there and inducing me.  (I was hoping that I could hold off until April 2 to be induced because I didn't want her to be born on April Fool's Day.)  Then, I ended up with an emergency c-section.  So this time?  Let's see... I predict that my water will break March 30 when I'll be sitting in a movie theater probably right at the climax of The Hunger Games.

Anyway, here is the one belly picture that I've taken this whole pregnancy.  (No, that is not a beach ball that Eggy is holding!)  This was actually taken a few weeks ago so my belly is even more swollen and bigger.  I might even have cankles, I'm not sure.  It's kind of hard to know when you can't see your feet.
