39 Weeks 3 Days

Pin It!

I had no idea how I was going to feel when I got to the very end of my pregnancy. 
It's so much better than I ever expected it would be. Not having to work this week has made ALL the difference. I'm still not sleeping very well at night. In fact, last night I probably woke up 57 times with the worst heartburn and had to sit up. BUT knowing that my alarm isn't going to go off at 6:00 am makes it all okay because I know I can try and sleep in and take a nap during the day.
My last week before our little bundle (hopefully) arrives has been wonderful. 
I could get used to being a lady of leisure ;-)

Tuesday: Hair appt
Wednesday: lunch in Temecula with my parents and brothers
Thursday: lunch with Kelly and a manicure, dinner with my parents
Friday: lunch with Sarah

At my Dr. Appt on Wednesday I learned that I'm 1.5 cm dilated, 70% effaced and baby is at -2 station. For some of you, that might seem like a foreign language but I was soo happy to learn that my body is doing SOMETHING to get ready because I just don't feel any impending signs of labor.

Brandon and I decided to ask Avery when she's coming. He put his hand on my stomach and asked her, "Avery, are you coming on Friday?" Silence. "Avery, are you coming on Saturday?" Silence. This goes on and on. Finally, he got to our due date, "Avery, are you coming on Tuesday?" Boom. She punched him. We were laughing so hard. So now, for some reason, I feel like she's going to come ON her due date :-)

Time will tell...

You are so close! Hopefully you will not go over your due date like I am! It's miserable!

Patty said...

Ha! This story was awesome. I feel like she already has some sass :)

I hope she's on time! I'd soak in those last few minutes of leisure :)

Sue said...

I hope she doesn't make you wait too long! You look absolutely stunning :)

Lindsey said...

Yay. You look great. I can't wait to read a post that says she's here!

Ben & Cassie said...

Wow you look so great girl!! No swollen face or hands or anything?! I hope she comes soon too! I CANNOT WAIT TO BE DONE WORK! 3 more weeks!!
Good luck with labor!

That would be so funny if she actually decided to make her arrival on Tuesday! You would always be able to remember that story to tell her. I'm so jealous that you are going to get to meet her soon. I still have to wait until May to meet our next little one. Hopefully it goes by quickly!
