36 Weeks38 Weeks
I really appreciate all the emails, comments, and facebook messages asking how I have been and how close I am to "the end." I am almost 38 weeks. Adeline came at 39 weeks, so I really could go into labor at any time. I am going to see the midwife weekly, and everything looks good.....baby's head is down, heart rate is fine, I'm gaining about a pound a week at this point, and still this little one remains quite active. I think it soon needs to be getting too tight in there for the sweeping movements across my belly, not that I'm complaining...I love it.
Patrick and I have been discussing how we have been much more lax about preparing for the arrival of this one. We are planning to pack a bag tomorrow. I did wash clothes, burp clothes, and other necessities last week (while also getting out and washing all of Adeline's summer clothes).
Next week looks CRAZY! I am working Mon-Wed. It seems nuts, but they have several people out, and I agreed a while ago to help. In addition, I have something almost every evening next week...including a midwife apt. After this week, my calendar gets a lot clearer (not that I'm going to be busy with a newborn and a toddler or anything). Thanks for your prayers as the time draws near. We are so excited to meet this little boy or girl. By the way, any guesses?
