37-38

Hellllooooo!

Week 37 and 38 have been alright! Last week we were pretty productive.. we got some dry wall fixed and a water softener (which both had me super giddy). I got a pedicure too so my toes aren't scary for labor ;) This week I had a shoot (and 2 more tonight) and slowly getting all of my editing done!

Week 37 with the doctor I was dilated to a 1 and 70% effaced and yesterday's appointment I was expecting to be the same. I haven't really had any contractions or cramping so I assumed no progress. BUT I am a 2.5 and 80% effaced! She offered to strip my membranes so we did that and I've been having some cramps and contractions, so Carson and I walked last night and I was hoping that would help! Welllll I woke up from a good night sleep and no contractions haha. It's been comfy all day except for one cramp and now back to normal. So we'll see! The doctor said if it did do anything for labor, we'll know within 24-48 hours so there's still some time for it to work! However, she thinks I'll still come on time. Oh well :(

Not much of an update this time, I just sit and edit at home all day and slowly work on things around the house. I haven't decorated for Fall yet and I want to so bad!

How far along? Currently 38 weeks! (39 on Monday, yay!)

How big is the peanut? A spaghetti squash! Basically between 6-9 lbs and around 20 inches. My doctor estimated me around the 7-8lb range.

Sleep? It's been a little more rough lately.. my back pain has been hard and I haven't been to the chiropractor in a bit so that's probably a mistake. 

Best moment this week? our doctor appointment! It was surprising good news. 

Symptoms? A little crampy... tired... I think I lost my mucus plug so that's cool. Um... That's it!  

Food cravings? Nothing in particular. I just love all the food. 

Food aversions? Nope! 

Labor signs? Cramping/braxton hicks... (see symptoms, basically the same thing haha) 

Belly button in or out? Out if I'm sitting or standing :)   

What I miss? um... not being winded all the time haha 

What I'm looking forward to? getting this baby OUT! ;)

Wow, have I failed! I wanted to do weekly updates and that just didn't happen. I took on too much work and it really got the best of me....
