  25. Number of hospitals I’m considering for delivery: 2
  26. Number of doctor’s visits to date: 4
  27. Baby’s heart rate: 140-146 on average

I am feeling so done, but I also am experienced enough to know that wishing for the end of pregnancy is wishing for the beginning of a new crazy schedule that ties me to an infant every 2.5 hours.  Here’s hoping I can enjoy the lovely third trimester and all its “fun”.
