*How far along?: 37 weeks! Full Term…come on Baby B!
*How big is baby?: Baby B weighs about 6 1/3 lbs and is over 19 inches long.
The size of a Swiss chard (whatever that is!) BIG is all I know!
*Sleep?: Sleep has been ok. There were a couple nights I just couldn’t get comfortable and one night I just could not fall asleep, other than that ok!
*Best moment this week? I’ve made progress! I am 1 cm dilated and Dr. C said she could easily feel Baby B’s head. Now I know this basically means nothing but it is still reassuring to know we are heading in the right direction!
Food cravings?: Cold things. Popsicles.
*What I miss: Running. Turkey sandwiches. Being able to bend over easily. Feeling like myself. My normal complexion and non-puffy face 🙂
*What I’m looking forward to: My next weekly appointment!
Meeting this sweet little boy we’ve been dreaming about!
Grammy K came over and helped get the crib bedding all put together and ironed the curtains for the nursery. Pictures to come! There has finally been progress!
I went and had our carseat checked to make sure it was installed correctly and thankfully we had done a great job! Baby B is ready to come home from the hospital 🙂
I decided after 36 weeks to quit teaching my circuit training classes. I’m really glad I did. It has been nice to not have any commitments after work. I’ve gotten a lot of things done around the house, rested a lot, and even went swimming! I forgot how great of a workout that is and it felt so good being in the water! I kind of felt like I had my old body back ha!
Knowing that I have successfully carried this precious boy for 37 weeks is absolutely mind boggling to me! He is so much a part of me but I just cannot wait to meet him face to face and kiss those sweet cheeks!
I did find out at my 37 week appointment that I am positive for Group B Strep. I was reassured by Dr. C that it is very common and it’s nothing that I did “wrong” but I was still very surprised to hear it, beings everything else with this pregnancy has gone perfectly.
Knowing that I could have a matter of days left or quite possibly 4ish weeks left is very difficult. It’s kind of a mind game. Ultimately I want little B to stay put as long as he needs to and to come out perfectly healthy, but the selfish part of me wants him to come NOW!
I honestly feel like we have everything we “need” to bring Baby B home from the hospital. Quite a relief! Now we wait….
