DISCLAIMER : As I get closer to delivering i am going to be sharing the *lovely* details.
I'm not ashamed of them but i am just writing this as a warning in case you don't want to read about it.
How far along? - 38 weeks! ... so dang close
Sleep? - I can't seem to get enough! I'm falling asleep super randomly all the time
my schedule is really wacky but when i do sleep, it is pretty well
considering how much mass i have these days haha
How am i feeling? - Well, emotional* mainly but pretty uncomfortable as well due to swelling
oh the swelling! My feet are boat-like now & oh man does it hurt!
my hands are beyond help as well & hurt on and off as well
Oh AND because of all the swelling i have TWO ingrown toenails :(
please lord let them go away as soon as you are here!
Movement? - You are still pretty darn active kiddo.
You love poking out as much as you can.
I've felt your sweet little footie a few times.. well i think it was your footie haha
Belly button? - Out and about. This turkey timer is done & popped!
Wedding Ring? - OFF :( ... in fact i almost wasnt able to remove them
thanks to all the lovely swelling im recently dealing with. Not fun :/
Missing anything? - Sleeping on my belly, skinny feet, getting out of bed easily
Food Cravings - Sushi w/ spicy mayo & ALL the Fruit
Labor signs - YES, Child.. you threw us a not so cute false alarm yesterday & today..
I went in for my usual Dr appointment at 4pm yesterday.
From the very moment we left i was continually contracting
all during my check up.. contracting..
got checked for progress and i was at
dilated 1cm & 50% thinned
My doctor sent me up to OB for monitoring
Once up there i was hooked up to monitors to see how often i was contracting
after about 30 minutes on the monitors they determined they were
about 7 minutes apart
I had NOTHING packed so Jake & my mom ( your Nana) ran home
( we thought this was the real deal ...)
to get things together & packed which was crazy stressful by the way!
anyway while they were off scrambling i got off the monitors
& they had me walk around the hospital for a half hour while i contracted
Once back on the monitors maybe an hour later
my contractions were 2 minutes apart
When they checked me for progress there was NONE
So they sent me home... & that is where we have been
As of now i've had a couple contractions/cramps but aside from that
Looking forward to? - YOUR BIRTH DUDE.. PLEASE stop teasing us
& let us meet you! We are so excited / terrified its hard to contain myself
2 weeks... 12 days now or less munckin...
come on out!
