Full Term!!!...37 weeks.

Full term!!!...37 weeks.

I am feeling:

beached whale-ish.
more tired.
like I have to pee constantly.
lots of movement way down low.
lots of braxton hicks and pressure.
like my belly is running into everything.
excited to see my little babe.
motivated to birth.
but like I want to sleep for a whole day first.

I am officially full-term: 37 weeks! Wahoo! I made it! Well with Will I went way over due so I am not expecting to much to happen soon, but you never know. :) I feel like we don't have as much stuff to get ready this time. No showers or gifts to organize. I just washed all the little neutral baby stuff that we own and set up the changing table in our room. Other than that I have the birthing supplies we need and the tub is coming next weekend! I am actually in shock that it is August already. This pregnancy has gone by really fast...and I am very thankful that I will not have two kiddos in diapers. Will is potty trained! I am so glad that I just tried it with him, even without him showing any "signs" of being ready. I just told him we were out of diapers and he was going to wear awesome new undies now. After 4 days of some accidents and some "hoorays!", he never had an accident again and just started telling us when he needed to go. That boy can hold it like a champ if he has too. I am so proud of him! :)

...oh yes, and the pregnancy post...
I have started seeing my midwife every week now. On Monday I took the strep B test and since she was already in there she checked my cervix to see if there was any progress yet..."nope, pretty closed still," she said. I was a little bummed, but really I still have three weeks so it's not that big of a deal. However some prayer for me would be great, for this baby is still posterior. I know there is nothing to worry about because that can be common at this time, and a lot of times the baby may not turn until active labor or pushing. I am not super worried about it, but Will was also posterior and it made for a very long, hard back labor. At least this time I am aware of it before hand so I am doing lots of exercises to help it turn before I go into labor. That is the hope. Other than that baby is doing great and I am doing great. Heart rate is good. I have gained 28 lbs. total so far and still having crazy weird dreams from time to time. :) Oh and here is a picture of me 37 weeks with Will to compare...

Full term!!!...37 weeks.

I am so excited for you guys!

I will pray that baby turns before you go into labor and that labor is not as painful and long as last time.

You're amazing Steph!!


Oh, and way to go Will!!!!!!

Hi, Neat рοst. Τhere's a problem along with your web site in internet explorer, may test this? IE still is the market chief and a huge section of peeps will leave out your Magnificent writing because of this problem.

I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pгetty wоrth enough for me.
Ӏn my opinion, if all sіtе οwners and bloggers made
good content as yоu did, the іnternet will be a
