PRAISE! I am full term! Even though we weren't worried last week about her coming early, we can now safely say that if she came, all would be well. And now that I'm at this point... I am so ready. I can't tell if it's discomfort or eagerness to meet her. I'm not at the point where I'm like, "just get her out!" but I am definitely ready to have this baby.
How far along: We are 37 and a half weeks and ready! Dr. C says that she probably won't come this week, but I still have a 25% chance. After my appointment on Friday, I was a 2 and still 50% (we confirmed she said 50 not 15).
What I'm craving: Anything sweet. I want dessert with every meal, and now I'm totally ok with getting it. I feel like now is the best excuse if I gain any extra weight, so bring on the sweets! In particular, I'm definitely wanting an apple cobbler...
How I'm feeling: Oh I am so tired. I'm tired all day every day now and it's getting harder and harder to get up and walk around. My belly is definitely huge and my poor feet are like balloons. Hence my pregnant waddle and discomfort. I keep wanting to do things around the house, but my feet get so big and then my back aches, and then I get whiny, and Sean tries to force me to sit down. There's not much left to do to prepare for Mini, but I just want to do anything!
What I bought this week: We're pretty much done buying stuff. I feel like we're in a really good place for her to come home. I may have one offs that I need to get, but we really are ready.
What I'm most excited about: Every day is a waiting game. I'm excited for her to be here and want to just hold her in my arms. I can't wait to see what she looks like and whose features she has. The other thing I am super excited about is our maternity pictures! I got them back last night and I LOVE THEM! I will do a separate post with the pictures so you all can see, but I am so happy with how they turned out. The final thing I need for Mini's nursery is a canvas for above her changing table and I am thrilled to order it! I can't wait to share with you all :)
I apologize for the shortness of this post, but I'm super tired and now my back is starting to hurt typing this out. My next appointment is on Monday the 26th and I'm super eager to see how far I've progressed. I'm hoping Dr. C will tell me when she sees me "Ok it's going to happen this week.. in fact, just stay here today" :)
