Today we are 38 weeks pregnant. I am getting pretty uncomfortable. I have been having some contractions. Mostly just braxton hicks--but about every hour or so..I get some that are a little uncomfortable. Dr. Maxwell--as of Friday advised that I am 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. So, we are at least doing something. I am wondering about this kiddo....When is he going to make his debut!?
We had our shower that Starr, Michele, Karina, Sarah and Jess through for us. It was soo amazing. I couldn't believe how many people came and how many awesome things they got for our little man. Here are some pictures....
Here is me and Thing 1 and Thing 2. Starr had a great idea to do a Dr. Suess theme. I loveeeeeeeeeed it!!
Yummy red velvet cup cakes made by Sarah
Starr went with me to my birthing class. We had a good time there. Since that class is done and everything is pretty much unpacked and placed somewhere..I think we are pretty much ready for the big day.
Let's see....pregnancy symptoms I could live without. Peeing all the time!!!! I realize that it is getting me ready to be up all night with a baby though--since I pee about 5-8 times a night.
Swollen feet. I still have ankles..but they are not pretty. My toes look like little sausages.
My blood pressure was a little high last Friday--so Dr. Maxwell told me to take it easy. He said it could have something to do with the 100 plus degrees every day...but just rest inside and not to over do it. So, now I am bored. I want to do so many things..and I just can't. So that isn't the most fun.
Anywho.....that is about all I have for now. This Friday the 20th is my next appt...so if we don't have a Noah by then..I'll update more. :)
