Mommy Mondays Week 38

Another exhausting week! Hubby and I have been staying busy. Walking about 2 miles a day, eating whatever the heck we feel like, and seeing all of our friends. I'm really excited to say that next week will be the last Mommy Mondays post during my pregnancy! My doctor is going to go ahead and induce me at 39 weeks. I am miserable, my cervix is paper thin and I'm almost 4 cm dilated but my body isn't going into active labor. If you've been there, you know how uncomfortable it is! I'm happy to at least have a date at this point, but the doctor still thinks it might happen before then. Apparently my labor could progress pretty quickly so the OB said if my contractions are strong and 7 minutes apart, just go into labor and delivery. So exciting! I can't wait to meet my little girl.

How many weeks: 38

What fruit/veggie is baby: leek, 19.75 inches and 6.8 lbs

Movement: it's decreased by now, but still normal. She's running out of room so instead of big kicks and punches it's her pushing on my insides.

New symptoms: nothing new!

Cravings: chocolate milkshakes/malts, cookies and milk

Sleep: waking up a lot, it's difficult to turn over and get up and out of bed too

Stretch marks: none! I'm really happy to have made it this far and still have soft smooth skin

Rings on/off: on

Best memory of the week: my husband being home. It's not really a memory, just a wonderful thing that's happening daily. I'm so happy to have him around to help me. With all the contractions I've been extremely uncomfortable and he's always giving me back massages and microwaving the heat pack for me!

Looking forward to: giving birth! Induction date has been set, but I'm hoping she'll still come on her own before then. Bring it on! I'm ready for it.
