So, I’ve not been updating on here. No excuses for you, I just haven’t done it. If any of you are still around, thanks! Here’s a quick update.
Today I am 37 weeks 4 days. I’m officially at the “you could go anytime” point. That is so strange to me! I’ve finally gotten used to the fact that I am indeed pregnant and the baby is going to be okay, and in a few short weeks, I will get to meet this little one! I still can’t wrap my mind around actually HAVING a baby – not the labor part (though, yes, that too) but the fact that I will have a small person to care for, one that my husband and I made together and longed for. I’m extremely happy, but I need to get my brain to see beyond this belly!
A few u/s shots:
Cute little face at 31 weeks. If you look close you can make out the eyes, nose and mouth.
A tiny little ear! The u/s tech said it was clearest ear she’d ever seen on the screen. There was also lots of visible hair! We have a Sasquatch.
It’s getting much harder to make out details. This was at 35 weeks 1 day. You can kind of see the profile. At the last u/s, baby was estimated to be about 6 lbs!
And just for comparison, the 2 belly shots I’ve taken:
I have a baby belly. Never thought it would happen! It took a while for me to finally show. Unfortunately, do to my weight before pregnancy, I haven’t looked pregnant all that long. But just a couple of weeks ago I saw an old friend and the first thing she said to me was “Oh my, you’re pregnant!” That made me feel good – that it wasn’t just me noticing any more 😀
17 days until I’m due. I can’t believe that! It’s pretty crazy around here. I’m at the doctor’s office 2-4 times per week. We have labor classes on Thursday nights, I have NST (non stress test)/AFI (an u/s to check the amniotic fluid) 2 times per week, and I now see the doctor every week. Not to mention, there is one more growth u/s scheduled, if I make it that far. I feel like I”m driving to that building every day, which sometimes is true! Things are going really well though. I’ll try to get some nursery pics up on here soon!
