We had our 38 week appointment today and we are inching closer to pumpkins arrival. I actually lost 2 pounds, not sure how that happened but it did. I was concerned that she had stopped growing but the doc said nope she is bigger then last week. So I guess she is just using my excess fat which is fine with me that’s less to lose when she gets here. I haven’t had much appetite there’s not a lot of space to put food. I eat because I have to but I am sneaking in a shake everyday to give her some fat.
I am 1.5 centimeters dilated and 70% effaced, I have also lost my mucus plug so now we just wait for the contracts to starts. Her head is farther down to so hopefully that means I can do a vaginal delivery. But for those that have crossed over you know things can change on a dime.
I am not fearing labor but I am getting more anxious about my life changes. I guess it’s up to me how much I give up. Lunches with friends, riding, getting out of the house. Knowing myself I will be out and about soon. I am not one to sit inside and watch tv. When the doctor gives me the thumbs up pumpkin and I will be going places.
Marks co-workers are finally throwing a baby shower on June 7th, yes that’s 5 days before her due date but better late than never I guess. It’s very nice of them it just would be have been nice if it had been a month ago.
So maybe by next weeks update I will have baby pictures to share and a birth story.
