Normal baby is normal.

We had another midwife appointment today, which is best characterised by the word "normal".

Bloodpressure? Normal.
Baby's position? Normal.
Baby size? Normal.
Foetal heartrate? Normal.

I have now been kicked in the kidneys by the sprogling (Liz cuddled up behind me). Apparently punching him back is Inappropriate Parenting Behaviour, but I think self-interest on Liz's behalf had more to do with it given I'd have to punch through her stomach.

56 days to go....

Heh, I may be the size of a hippo, with the speed of an arthritic snail, but I'm pretty sure I can still do some basic martial arts moves, like Fist to the Face, and Knee to the Groin... (:

And these things will affect him how? :-)

Well, aeduna isn't a big fan of getting a fist in the face or a knee in the groin, so that's likely to make him think twice before punching through my stomach... (:

Heh - the kid's doing it because he knows he can get away with it :) Wait till he's out and then you can really get him back with all the twisty things parents get to do to their kids!

Just remember, every blow to Liz in her current state will be noted measured exponentialised, then will come back to haunt you while she's in labour. ;o)

Heh, unfortunately, every blow to aeduna during these nine months is being remembered, cos he can't hit back till after the birth. If you see "New mother pummelled to death" in the news in Sept/Oct, that'll be me... (:

Yay for normal sprog! Glad everything is oging well.

Well sure, the bub is 'normal' using their pitiful detection capabilities that the humans are limited to. Those of us with eldritch powers know that your bub is anything but. Which is a huge relief. I'd hate to think you'd been saddled with a Mundie child somehow, but my widget reliably informs me that genetics have bred true and you're saved from this terrible fate.

75 days to go. Why is it so slow and yet so fast? Simultaneously?

Heh, hopefully he won't be mundane, but being physically and physiologically "normal" is reassuring.

I'm not ready yet! Also, how much longer? I'm going to start having trouble fitting through doors soon...

I keep running into tables/doors and spilling stuff as I continue to underestimate the size of the large baby bump and the growing upper bumps. Tripped over a small step this morning cos I didn't realize it was there under my feet.

It's the inverse of being the gangly awkward elongating teenager!
