Oh my...how time is flying by! It honestly seems like yesterday that we found out that I was pregnant! Now here I am almost 39 weeks pregnant!
We had a baby shower a few weeks ago. Our family and friends blew us away with their generosity. We are all set for when the baby decides to make his or her appearance! Everything is washed, assembled, and put away. We just need the baby now.
At my 36 week appointment, I was 1 cm dilated and 60% effaced. At my 38 week appointment I was 4 cm dilated and the doctor could feel the baby's head. In fact, he truly thought I was in labor and that I didn't know it. I got hooked up for a non-stress test and proved him wrong. No contractions! I jokingly told the doctor that I am just trying to get as much of a head start as possible before actually having to deal with the pain of contractions!
Although the doctor told me I will have the baby within a week, I made my weekly appointment for next Thursday. Honestly, I just don't feel like this baby is coming any time soon. I only have a little light period like cramps now and then...nothing regular. I even went to a concert on Saturday night (the Fab Faux) and still nothing despite all the walking and music vibrations.
I keep telling everyone that this is a stubborn child who is going to hang on by his or her toes to stay in!
