Julie,
What you are feeling is so normal... I've been there two times over. You are so great and so strong... you can do it. Try to do some special things for yourself before he makes his entrance to the world. Go out for a nice dinner with Andy. Take naps ALOT! Relish in this last part of pregnancy. It is going to be very draining at this point. You will worry a lot, but that is ok. Just let the emotions come and go. Remember that is all they are - emotions - that is not what is really happening.

As far as movement goes. There will seem to be a lot less. He's running out of space in there. Keep doing your kick counts like you have been. You know your body and your baby. Youwould know if something was really happening.

I love you and I am so proud of you. I can't wait to see him and know his name!

Hugs,
Suz

Julie- I am so happy to keep reading your wonderful news! I am sure you are on edge, but its only a few more weeks! Enjoy the quiet! [;)] Take leisurely showers, organize your tupperware cabinet and make a couple of meals to put in the freezer to pass the time! LOL

Kyle slowed down a bit in the last few weeks of pg too- not enough room in there. People I didn't even know told me they could see his elbows or knees or whatever moving around through my bathing suit at the pool! That was a little freaky. [:I] [8D]

Seriously, I am thrilled to hear you and baby are doing so well. Keep up the good work!

Oh Julie, just gotta love you. I'm so glad things are going well and that you have a compassionate OB. You've been through so much I know you must feel drained. Did you ever think you would be so strong? I cannot even comprehend.

Julie,

I can't believe you are here already! 35 weeks is awesome! My DD was born on the dot at 35 weeks and did very well! You are definitely in the home stretch. I pray the next few weeks will fly by so you could tell us all what it is like holding your baby boy!

Congrats

Good For you Julie!!! I am so happy to hear that all is well. I know the 'borrowed time' feeling. I just could not shake the feeling that I wanted her out while I knew she was ok. It will all work itself out. He needs some more time to grow. And agree with all the other ladies. The decreased movement is normal. They only have so much room. When I got worried, a glass of orange juice always did the trick! All my babies liked that!

Hugs, Love and Prayers;
