Pregnancy: Week 38

Happy new year!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.  To be honest, I'm just so glad that it's over!  It's been a pretty rough two weeks and I'm just ready to have my baby already.  As of Sunday I'm officially off the contraction medication so I'm starting to feel those bigger ones.  While it isn't horrible, they definitely stop me in my tracks.  I'm also starting to be a little more active to I can jump start the labor.  There are plenty of old wives tales and remedies to start labor but nothing works better than being on your feet.

I am currently too big to wear about 90% of my dresses anymore.  It's a little depressing but I just keep reminding myself that this is only very temporary.  Once I give birth I'll be the size I was when I was about 5-6 months pregnant and I'm totally okay with that.  I also have a hard time putting on clothes in general.  Bending, twisting, and anything other than lying down takes way more energy than it should.  I definitely won't be taking it for granted in the future!

I went to my doctor on Monday and I'm about 2 cm dilated (sorry if this is TMI).  So I'm right on track for an on time delivery.  B is measuring fine, her heart rate is nice and steady, and she's staying in the head down position.  My right rib cage is probably internally bruised due to her constant kicks there, but as long as she's active I'll take the abuse haha!  I can now actually feel her foot through my skin.  It's the weirdest/coolest thing ever.  Every time I go to touch her foot she moves it away... What a little diva!

Like I said during my last update, I'm hoping his will be my last one!  I'm really scared of being overdue, only because I don't want her to get too big to deliver.  And I don't know how long I can keep being this uncomfortable all the time.  Keep your fingers crossed and those thoughts positive for me :)

xoxo
