38 Weeks! What! What!

I can hardly believe this journey is almost over. As far as I know, this will be the last time EVER in my entire life that I will carry a baby inside my body. Baby Factory is closed. Going to get a tubal straight after delivery. If history is any indication, I will have a new baby in my arms by December 1.

Here is the 38 week belly. 38 weeks (37.6)
I think this might be one of my favorite maternity shots yet.  :)

Anyway.  Doctor appointment was fun.  Have I mentioned I love my Dr?  Seriously, if you live in Springfield, Ozark, or Nixa, and you need a rec for an OB/Gyn, I have one for you... just hit me up.

I joked around with him that my hopes aren't high for any progress to have been made.  He told me to stop being pessimistic ha.  I told him that I'm not pessimistic, I'm a realist.  It's half a glass of water, none of the half full half empty stuff. ha.  He laughed.  I told him, with both of my previous babies, when he would check for dilation and effacement it was the same story "fingertip dilated and 60% effaced."  He was like "well let's see."  ha ha ha.  He asked me my guess again so I told him and he said... 1 cm and 70% effaced.  HA!  So  while I wasn't exactly right, I was pretty darn close ha.  Anyway.  Basically that means baby could come anytime... or baby could stay in there for 3 or 4 more weeks. ha ha ha.  So essentially, it means NADA! NOTHING! ha ha ha.  So funny.  Oh well, it's nice to know if you are progressing or not.  1 cm and 70% effaced is better than being long and closed.  Even though, in the grand scheme of things, they mean the same darn thing, which is "nah nah nah nah nah nah, you don't know when labor will star."  Just sayin.

My doctor keeps telling me when I can go into labor because he will be on call.  I'm like, "I'm trying to tell her to come out!" ha.

Well.  That's the news.

Weight was another shocker.  I stepped on the scale, pointed at the scale and said "I hate you." It rewarded me with a .6 lb loss ha ha ha.  Thank you scale.  So currently the weight stands at 171.6.  That might have gone up since leaving the dr.  I have consumed 1/4 of a pineapple, 1 BBQ beef sandwich, a bowl of baked beans, and some jalepeno chips... as well as 10 oz Coke, 3 chocolate chip cookies, and a small glass of milk.  FATTY! ha.

And that's about all I have for you.  I am happy, I am good.  Just waiting for Avery to decide to make her appearance.  Whenever that may be.
