Sooo...I've made it to 38 weeks, and it still hasn't been too bad. Sure, it's getting a bit harder to sleep, and the heat that is supposed to be coming near the end of this week sounds miserable, but overall, it's still been great! I'll miss being pregnant, but I'll enjoy laying on my stomach again! :)
And I still love not working. I've definitely slowed down on household chores the last week or so, but that's because I haven't been sleeping all that well, and I've seriously stepped up the walking. The fear of being induced has got me walking more than I want, but if it helps, and it's natural, then I'll do it. It seems as though I must be making some progress now. I think I lost the mucous plug early Saturday morning, and have been having bloody show ever since, so that's gotta mean something, right? And today, I woke up having contractions. Granted, they aren't in the front, but I haven't had pains like this in my back....ever. I hope that I don't have back labor the entire time, but it's definitely getting more intense as the day progresses. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
I had lunch with my friend Katie and her son, Jared, today, and that was fun. Who knows how many more of these I'll get in the near future!
When we went to Ikea a couple of weeks ago, I got these great little decals to put on the wall behind the baby's crib. However, due to our textured walls, all of the work was wasted, because it all started to fall down a few hours after I finished. However, since I had a feeling that this might happen, I did take a photo real quick. It would've been so cute!!
Ok, just talked to my doula, and based off of what I described to her, she thinks I'm in early labor. Yippee!!!!! I pray she's right!!! I'll keep you all posted!
