We have reached 38 weeks and I cannot believe how close we are, the average first baby is about 8 days late so I am trying to not get too excited that it could be right around the corner but thats hard to do. Every pre labor surge I wonder will I get to meet my sweet girl today... No rush though I am still feeling patient, people keep asking if I am miserable and the answer is no and I am so happy that I am not, I feel great still have lots of energy and the house is all ready for a new baby. In about a week though I will not turn down Jump Start Your Labor Cookies haha if you like to bake please bring me some :)
This last week was also full of good times and more rest then the previous weeks. Cooking a lot more but still going out a lot with friends. I love all this extra time I have right now and everyone is welcome to come over and visit me, I need to walk more so if you are bored just go ahead and text me! I was able to spend some time with the newest LB babies -- Chip [his mommy is Eva] & Vincent [his mommy is Shar] those two little guys are adorable and it makes it so much more real to see these ladies who have blogged on here now living the lives with little guys, so awesome. Last weekend we went and spent the day at my father-in-laws house, my parents joined us and we all swam, ate and caught up. It was a really great day and I also got my tan back! I miss the salon and will probably head in for an airbrush soon, I have a small list of things I want to get done before our birth day. They are all silly but I am sure there will be no time to get my nails done, hair done, airbrush done and massages right after she arrives. Next week those will all be things to look forward to.
Next midwife appointment is on Friday, people are wondering how dilated I am but I won't know that until I am in labor or until I have reached 40 weeks. I am very ok with not knowing, I have had friends who walked around at 2cm - 5cm for weeks, if I knew it would just make me anxious so we will just let it play itself out. Looking forward to the appointment, we get to hear Claire's heartbeat and find out how she is growing and I of course want to confirm that she is still head down, that seems to be the thing I would say I am 'worried' about.
I think its time for a nap and I should pull myself away from the My Teen Is Pregnant & So Am I. Have a great day and make sure to go wish my sisters HAPPY BIRTHDAY! The twins are 24 today and Melissa is celebrating in Tokyo & STephanie is celebrating in NYC! Love them and miss them both.
You are the size of a watermelon! What!?! You do seem really big and heavy but I don't know if I would go that far. Thank you so much for making this last trimester easy on me, we have really been working together as a team and I know this will continue through your birth and I hope through your life. I love you. You had the hiccups the other day and that was my first time feeling them, it was amazing. You are just the cutest. You are still growing big and strong and I hope you are not too squished in there. We have been doing this for 38 weeks now and not once have I forgotten how lucky I am to have you with me, you are so little and so loved already. Most of the babies in bellies around us have been born already but we are still excited to meet Erin's baby girl, Callie's baby girl & Carina's twins, a boy and a girl. There will be lots of little ones for you to play with and I am so excited for you to meet them all. Love you baby girl.
