Due Date

Well it looks like our little guy is going to be making a late arrival.  Today is the big due date and there is no sign of him coming.  I had an ultrasound, non-stress test and appointment yesterday.  He looks great and it just comfy cozy right now.  I go back again Monday and they will schedule an induction for next Thursday or Friday if he hasn't shown up at that point.  Matt likes to joke that he is just like him already- hitting the snooze button and getting some extra sleep before making his arrival!

Maternity Clothes: Peace out regular clothes, see ya in the fall!

Weight Gain: 20 pounds

Belly: I feel enormous

Stretch Marks: A couple.

Sleep: It's been better but only because I'm done with school and can sleep as late as I want.

Best Moment of the Week: Hearing from the doc that his head is down (and she could feel it), I'm 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced- let's get this show moving!

Movement: I feel him all the time.  I still get panicky when I don't feel him for a few hours so I guess I'm a little crazy!

Symptoms: Exhausted, heartburn, acid reflux.

Food Cravings: Nothing really.

Gender: It's a boy!  We have his name all set and can't wait to share it once he arrives.

What I Miss: Walking like a normal person!

What I'm Looking Forward To: 12 days until the due date so hopefully meeting my little guy real soon.

Weekly Wisdom:  It's all worth it in the end.

Milestones: He is a full term baby that could come any day now :)

Emotions: Nervous and excited.
