39 Weeks

ONE MORE WEEK LEFT!!! Holy moly!  I say one more week left because with Lindsey I delivered on my due date, and with my son, the day before... so I have a history of going to the day.  We'll see.

Here is my 39 week belly... and I do believe we have dropped a little!!! ha.
39 weeks (38.6 to be exact)
Almost finished! I can't believe it!  This pregnancy was so unexpected and when I found out, I was really disappointed.  Funny how time will change our minds.  I have come to be happy that I got to experience this insane journey one last time.  I have come to accept my weight gain.  I have come to accept that sometimes what we think is best for ourselves in life isn't always what IS best.  This pregnancy and baby were meant to be and I am so excited to see what is in store for little Avery.  I am excited at seeing her grow and the person she will be come.  Who will she look like, who will she act like?   I love watching the lives of my kids unfold.

Anyway.  My doctor appointment was today.  I am close to 2 cm dilated now with 85-90% effacement.  YIKES!  It's getting close.  My fundal height is measuring about 37-38 cm (weeks).  Nope, the baby didn't shrink... she dropped.  I was right.  So labor is right around the corner.  My bet is that I will go into labor early November 29th and have her the same day.  That is my prediction.  Feel free to make your own. :) 

My weight gain wasn't bad.  172.4.  I always expect the worst and it's never that bad really ha. 

So now I am just waiting for her to be ready to make her appearance.  Waiting for her to decide that mommy's torso is abnormally short and that she needs more space for wiggling around ha.  I can't wait to meet her.  I can't wait for you all to meet her.

Hopefully next time I blog, it will be with the birth story!  Woo hoo!

P.S.  I am getting a Keurig!!! What what!!! Yeah, I'm excited.  My Aunt Karen is giving me one she bought to use while she was in Arkansas taking care of her dad, my Uncle David... who had a really bad stroke.  She has since gone back to her home and she left me the Keurig... GAH!  So happy!  Crazy how something that makes hot beverages can make someone so giddy. 
Hope you all have the BEST Thanksgiving! 
It's my favorite and I am so excited for tomorrow!
