Here we are at 37 weeks. Not much change going on. I am "measuring" at 35 weeks, which is odd, because with Lorelai, I always measured like 8 weeks ahead. So, I'm guessing either this baby is hiding or will be tiny compared to Lorelai. We shall see.
We still don't know the sex of the baby, and contrary to what many might think, JD is actually doing okay with not knowing. Not that he has a choice at this point.
I've gained ten pounds so far. And before you go hating on me, remember I had a good amount to lose before I got pregnant. My goal was to gain nothing....oh well, I'll take ten.
I'm still feeling great. One time of day I'm uncomfortable is flipping myself over at night. I need one of those contraptions they use when transporting dolphins or whales that roll them over easily. That would rock.
Other than that, I've been having steady (like 5 minutes apart) Braxton Hicks contractions for almost two weeks now. Nothing is progressing, though. Except the back pain that comes along with some of said contractions. Those bring me to my knees.
However, I'm only 2cm dilated and 50% effaced. That makes me happy. I am not really ready yet for the baby. I mean, I can't wait to meet him/her, but we try so hard to get pregnant, and I really enjoy pregnancy. Each time we're pregnant could be the last time and I don't want to take a moment for granted. I'm also enjoying the quality one-on-one time I'm getting with Lorelai lately. Most everything super important is done in the house and I'm focusing the rest of my time on her.
I guess I should UN-focus on her for about an hour and get my hospital bag packed, though, huh? Yeah, still haven't done that yet.
Well, I'll keep y'all posted. I know you don't believe me, because I've been a horrible blogger, but this is the best way to keep everyone informed on the birth, so I promise I'll do better....at least for now. :-D
