Tummy Tuesday- Week 38

Well...still pregnant. Yep.
I was REALLY hoping to go in labor this past weekend. I am just so terrified of going while I'm at work. Normally I would be OK b/c my awesome co-worker has offered to take me to the hospital and sit with me while we wait for Mr. Husband, but she's on vacation this year and I'll be damned if I let one of those other two idiots my other coworkers take me.
I tried everything this weekend, squats, mani/pedi, walking, red raspberry tea, EPO, the deed and none seemed to work. Guess she's pretty comfy in there. I don't even feel like she's dropped yet. I went to my dr for my weekly again and he told me my cervix was "nice". As in nice and CLOSED still. I told him that was not "nice" and was in fact "mean". I'm so ready to have 8 weeks off with my precious girl.
Sleep gets a two word review, shit sandwich. Yeah if I thought it was bad before it officially the pits now. I get up AT LEAST every 2 hours to pee. How is this possible?! I don't even drink anything close to bedtime. UGH.
Mr. Husband and I have been watching Bringing Home Baby together and it gets us so excited. The one episode showed a dad rocking his new baby and just crying while he talked to him and it made us both cry. We are ready for those special moments. My bag is packed, Kendall's bag is packed, her baby book is filled out as much as possible, Mr. Husband has started packing his bag, and the car seat is installed. We are prepared! I love driving around with that little seat back there, it makes me so happy. I also find myself already driving better/safer even though there's no baby in it yet, guess that's a good thing! Look how cute it is!
{sidenote} have you seen my ticker at the top? It may be a bit of TMI but it speaks the truth. How awful is that? Gross.
Anyway, here we are at 38 HUGE weeks

Oh and look what I can do now...
that's right, I can rest a cup on my belly, can you? Don't be jealous.

    they say to always keep your car's gas tank full - b/c the moment its on E is when she will decide to come... so you can either be prepared or risk it...

  4. Don't be discouraged! I have a friend that was 38 weeks and she went to the dr, who told here that nothing had happened yet, no thinning, dropping, dilation, nothing, and she went home and had that baby about 12 hours later! And I also have a friend that was dilated for weeks and had to be induced way after her due date. All that to say that the progress the dr finds really means nothing, so don't be disappointed! Miss K is coming soon! 3 more weeks at the most, right? Although I know that the thought of making it 3 more weeks sounds like the worst thing ever right now.
