So here's a belly shot with my stretch marks in all their glory. I guess they aren't too bad. So what does week 37 feel like? In a word...uncomfortable. It's hard to tie my own shoes!
Not sure. No...I'm serious. I don't know. Last week there was a morning I woke up with an intense pain just on the right side. I had to lay down to put my shoes on. Was it a contraction? Was it acid reflux? I don't know. The doctor said the baby could be pushing my stomach down and into a funny spot. I also have these little crampy spasms at random. Are those Braxton Hicks? I honest to goodness don't know. Lol, I"m so clueless, I'll probably be well into active labor before I recognize it as labor!
What about baby?
The little miss Mary is head down as always. She "dropped" sometime last week, so she's locked and loaded! I think she's still in the left occiput anterior position. My doctor says she just reached the 7 pound mark and could come at any time. My chiropractor said I'm in good alignment (and holding adjustments well). I probably won't have another adjustment until after delivery :) I've had them every other week for the last month or two.
Is the house ready?
I don't know... It's kinda mess, and I don't like how the baby's room is arranged! Our freezer is full of premade freezer meals that I've been working on for the last week though :) And I still can't decide if I should order cloth diapers or just stick with what's easiest! UGH
Am I ready?
Heavens yes! I'm ready to have my body back. I'm ready to be able to curl up in bed. I'm ready to go for a jog! I'm ready to be able to move freely again :) And boy am I ready to have some time off from work to be a mommy! I know it will be exhausting, but I just can't wait! I just hope she's not late! I want to maximize my time with my parents here when I'm a new mommy!
