37 weeks: How I feel

Wow.....this week felt like it would never come! I can't believ I am FULL TERM!! Absolutely amazing!! It feels great to know that if he was born that he can function with out any help! Such an awesome milestone!

Dilation & Effacement at Check Up!
Went to the doctor this week. I was very nervous beacuse this was going to be my 1st internal exam to check for dilation. It really wasn't too bad at all. Dr. Young said I am really good shape and was 2 cm dilated & 80% effaced! I could not believe it!!! Wow...already. I really thought he was going to stay and sealed shut and nothing was going on. I was floored. He could be here any time!

We also had an ultra sound to see how much our precious boy was going to weigh. He is 6 lbs 2 oz. according to the ultra sound. It was weird to see this particular ultra sound because usually you can see the whole body, but we can only see parts because he is so big now. It was amazing to see a large view of his heart, ribs & head. And yes he is still a boy!! :-)

Hips Hurting...No Such Thing As Good Sleep!
Seriously this head line says it all. There is NO such thing as good sleep anymore. I wake up literally every 5 minutes because the weight of my body is hurting my hips or side that I am trying to sleep on. So I have to turn my body and of course that is a huge task. I try to position my body certain ways...fetal position, crouching, stretching one leg, etc. It might work for a split second, but then I start to feel the pain again. Ugh...I can't wait to get my body back and I can sleep on my stomach!

Bags Are Packed!
Baby's bag pack...CHECK! My bag 99% packed....CHECK! Everything is just waiting in the room ready to take to the hospital! Hopefully it will be soon!!!

Another Check Up
Tuesday before I hit 38 weeks my doctor checked me and I had progressed from 2 cm to 3 cm still 80% effaced!! He is almost here!!

37 weeks...FULL TERM!
