She isn't here yet- 38w5d

First of all congrats to the lovely ladies Katie, Jill, Jenn, and Amber. It's strange how happy I feel for these ladies, who I don't know in real life, to have followed your pregnancies and now see you with your miracles.

It also makes me all that more impatient for our little girl to arrive. No update. She's still seemingly cozy in her home of 9 months.

I have been feeling a little stronger Braxton-Hicks the past few days, noticed some slight spotting yesterday, no sight of the mucus-plug and at last week's appointment I was still not dilated. OB said my cervix had just lowered and was riper.

Body is increasingly finding it uncomfortable to move around with this huge belly. I haven't slept a good night's sleep in weeks. Most days the heart burn makes it hard to eat. Considering all of this, I'm actually looking forward to labor.

Have you heard of the full moon story? Apparently the gravitational pull on full moon nights causes women who have due dates around the full moon's water to break. I asked my OB and she confirmed that most hospitals increase staff on full moon nights.

Tonight is a full moon. Could this be it?

Hope it happens soon! :) I'm happy for you too... and will be happier when your LO arrives! Hope the heart burn lets up some for you. That part was awful!

Jill said...

Ooh, good luck with the full moon! I'll be "pulling" for you. ;)

Thanks for the shoutout! I look forward to hearing all about your little love when she arrives.

I feel the same way about all of you girls! I was so sad that my wifi wouldn't work while I was in the hospital. I'm looking forward to hearing about your little arrival soon!!!
