Final Thoughts

Dear Abramella, So Week 37 is almost up and you decided you needed a little more time.  The doctor thinks you might already be 7-7.5 pounds so maybe don’t take too much time.  These last few days have given me time to reflect on this pregnancy.  This is our second and last pregnancy.  Here are…
