36w3d: Saturday May 10th: Feliz Dia De Las Madres! & Cancer Fight Going Strong...

Baby G is now 6 lbs and is gaining half an ounce of weight each day.

His movements are near acrobatic. Very alert, very restless.

Busy day as we toured the hospital where the little one will come to this world.

The hectic day ended with visiting inlaws for today's Mother's Day (celebrated by all Mexican Moms) and assembling our stroller.

Pretty exciting!

Wife's swollen feet still a worry but luckily her blood pressure is very normal. So it will just be one of those pesky symptoms we will have to live with until after the birth.

From placenta eating to full moons is where today's conversations swayed. I firmly believe the increase of births during a full moon is nothing but an old wife's tale. Just in case, I looked it up. The next full moon in June will be June 13th. So, if the theory is correct, will the baby wait to come eight days past his due date?

Highly doubt it.

In line with inlaws visit, I appreciate the concern on father in law's health. He is doing fantastic with his treatment.

God willing, if all goes as planned thus far, this Monday he will begin his LAST cancer chemo treatment cycle. Each cycle for him has been quite a beating. Leaving him weaker and weaker every time. We continue having lotsa hope. He has had a couple relapses but mostly due to accidents such as falling and such. The most recent they detected bleeding in the brain, but was luckily contained.

Thank you for reaching out and staying in touch with his health.

  1. I read somewhere that eating pineapple all day on or before your due date will help bring baby sooner. I cant say I tried that but if pasted due ill share the crazy stuff I did to go into labor since I was past due twice.
