How I’m Feeling
It’s amazing what a few good night’s sleep in a row will do for you. Miraculously, that happened for me and I am feeling a million times better than I was last week. I still am getting contractions pretty much everyday, but so far nothing that’s made me think I’m going into labor.
What’s Going on with My Body
This week I’ve really noticed the size of my stomach. Poor Meghan wants to snuggle up in my lap and there’s just no room. It’s gigantic. Some of my maternity clothes don’t even properly cover it up. The only good thing about this giant stomach of mine is boy does it make people act extra nice to me when I’m out and about. 😉
At my weekly doctor’s appointment, I learned I gained another pound this week, so I’m up to 31 total pounds for the pregnancy. The nurse took three tries to get my blood pressure reading, which had me worried for a moment, but in the end it was 110/70–normal. We heard Baby Bean’s heartbeat and I was measuring right on track. The doctor also observed that the head is down, but he couldn’t tell how far he’d dropped and didn’t think he was engaged yet.
Since there are five different doctors that work in the office of my OBGYN, whoever is on call the day I go into labor will deliver our baby. I am praying that I go into labor when my doctor is on call. The dates we are focusing on are the 16th, 17th, 18th, or 20th. I believe in the power of prayers and the law of attraction, so I hope Baby Bean decides to make his appearance on one of those days! There is a full moon coming tomorrow night, and I hope that the old wives’ tales about going into labor on a full moon aren’t true.
Have a fantastic weekend!
