I've really been sucking at this whole blogging thing since I got pregnant....
And I still am (pregnant) if there was any question!
I've got just a couple weeks left (hopefully). Unless she's REALLY late then we are potentially looking at 4ish weeks, but I doubt my doctor would let me go that overdue.
I've had an Incling that she's not going to be too late, and usually these feelings I have are right in the end.
And speaking of the end of pregnancy... The signs are definitely happening. Yesterday I got kankles for the first time and they haven't gone down really since yesterday. I guess that's what 37 weeks and three days looks like for me. Yippee. And yes I'm being sarcastic.
I am pretty lucky (I guess) that I haven't gotten too swollen until now. I thought I'd share what my swollen feet and ankles look like, but there's just not a cute way to show those, so I'll spare you.
I've been having cramping for a couple weeks in my pelvic area, kinda like period cramps and maybe one real practice contraction plus some low abdomen pain that happened one day when I was getting out of my car. It was weird and much like a charley horse, but in my low abs. Weird. It hasn't happened again.
She's been moving a lot despite how cramped it feels, and her butt is pushing up into my right rib area a lot. She also is head down still and in position, so hopefully it will stay that way until d day!
I've had a lot more anxiety lately about how much our lives are about to change. I've been on a bit of an emotional roller coaster. Her room is still not complete, though we're close, but I never imagined we'd be so down to the wire. Oh well, such is life. We do have a crib now, so I'm feeling much more at ease that we have that one important piece. I know we probably won't be using it right away, but I just imagine it's going to be harder to get things done once she's actually here, so having it now puts my heart at ease.
I have an ob appointment this Wednesday to have my lady parts checked for the first time and get measured again. I have a feeling that I am dialated a little but I guess we will see for sure come Wednesday! They by the way think I'm a week behind what i truly feel I am, not that it really matters a whole lot now considering we are so close to the end. It still feels months away, like it's truly never going to get here. But I'm so ready to meet my girl. I can only imagine the emotion of meeting her the first time and the celebration in the delivery room. Ready for her to wrap her little fingers around our hearts.
I hope I have news soon!
