Last Bite Mosquitos?

First I want to say thank you for all the encouraging stories on baby's weight guessed in utero versus actuality! I must say, this is one time when Google helped ease my concerns. The majority of the stories I came across were all the same, baby measured smaller than told. I like this... I have decided that {unless it becomes medically necessary for other reasons} I am going to labor and push this baby out! If I didn't at least try, I would always wonder and I'm sure regret not trying... Especially since we want to start trying for baby number 2 pretty soon after birth {breastfeeding isn't 100% birth control so hoping for an "oops"!} and we will have to post pone that if I have a csection as I'd want to try for a VBAC. So thank you again for adding more encouraging stories for me to be reminded of when I start to wonder! ;-)

And now my rant...

I have officially been attacked, and eaten, by some sort of small colony! I seriously have like 15 bug bites on me and not a single one on Charles! What's up with that? Is this a last attempt for mosquitoes to suck up the blood they need to last the winter or something? Heck, I'm not even sure it was mosquitoes! I let the dogs outside in the evening and came back in about 15 minutes later. Several hours later began the itching. Not taking Benedryl {hate not feeling baby move!} but boy has it tempted me as it's hard enough getting to sleep the last couple of days without fighting scratching my skin off!

But on the positive side, fall is here!!!!!!!!!! Oh, it feels oh so amazing outside currently. I love to walk in every store now as the aromas of fall are everywhere! Cinnamon brooms, Pumpkin candles, and not to mention all the colors and decorations... Oh, Fall, how I love you! I was even suckered in at the grocery store yesterday and purchased Libby's Pumpkin Bread mix! The cashier said they had just got them in! Yay!!! ;-)

And that is my rambling for today... I have more thoughts but will wait to post those after my Dr appt on Monday for further input. :-) Happy Weekend!
