37 Weeks and some change

I apologize for the reflection and dirty mirror :/

*How far along?: 37w2d

*Total weight gain: mid 20's

*How big is baby?: Huge ;) Watermelon. As of my growth u/s at 36w6d they think she is already 8 lbs 1 oz

*Sleep?: Yeah, not so much

*How are you feeling physically? These past few weeks have been very difficult. She has positioned herself more in more pelvis which is painful and uncomfortable and I have slowly started to progress in terms of becoming dilated (though I was never told the number). YAY!

*How are you feeling emotionally?: A ball of emotions. SO excited to meet her!!!!!

*Movement?: Yes and she hurts her mama. It's still amazing to watch my belly move all over the place

*Food cravings?: Nah, not so much anything right now

*Labor signs?: Yes. I've been having cramping and more painful BH contractions, though nothing close to hard labor

*What I miss: Being more mobile, sleeping in my own bed (now sleeping sitting up on the couch) and a nice glass of Pinot :o)

*What I'm looking forward to: Holding my sweet baby girl!

*Random Thoughts: Can my vag handle a large baby!?!?!? LOL OMFG I'm a little nervous :) I have decided to try and labor as long as I can without meds so I can be mobile, but I will opt for an epi

I hit 35/35!!!

Ok, one day past due on this, but the picture is from yesterday. How in the world did I make it here? I remember how much doubt I had that I would ever be able to get pregnant, and here I am. If there is one thing I can pass on, it's to never give up!

*How far along?: 35w1d

*Total weight gain: mid 20's

*How big is baby?: Honeydew (4.5-5.5 lbs)

*Sleep?: What's that?

*How are you feeling physically? Overall pretty good, though I'm starting to exhaust quickly and can feel my body shifting for delivery which is somewhat painful.

*How are you feeling emotionally?: Fantastic! I am so ready for her :)

*Movement?: Yes, though it has slowed down some since she has less room. She loves to kick the top of my belly with her heels though LOL

*Food cravings?: Anything the GD diet tells me not to have? haha

*Labor signs?: Nope

*What I miss: Being able to walk normally (no waddling, grunting) :)

*What I'm looking forward to: Her delivery

*Random Thoughts: We are now totally prepared for her when she comes. The nursery is done (though she'll be sleeping in a bassinet in our room for a while), clothes & blankets are washed, bouncer and swing set up and we picked up the last few things we needed for a while from the store! :) Hopefully it's another month before she's here though, but we're ready for her!
