Baby Boy Update: 38 Weeks

Posted by Amy O. , Friday, July 25, 2014 7:21 PM

38 weeks & all's still well!  At the now-weekly check-up, the doctor said he's still "way up there" - so his arrival is not yet imminent - and truth be told, we're rooting for an August baby, for the simple reason that we now have four July birthdays in the family, and no August birthdays currently.  But, you know, like an August 1st at 12:01 a.m. baby would be just fine.

The kicks & movements, which don't seem to have slowed though everything I read says they will have due to the more cramped space in there now, are just as rambunctious as ever, and getting to be quite painful at times.  I am determined not to complain (much) - but this stage is really uncomfortable.  Vianne was born at exactly 38 weeks, so this whole 38 weeks and 2 days thing is unchartered territory for this Mama ;-).  Trying to a) be patient, and b) embrace the adventure, every day of it.

Meanwhile, poor Vianne is subject to a tired and short-on-patience Mama while she flexes her Two muscles daily...and there's been a bit more crying - from both of us - than usual the past few days.  This too, as they say, shall pass.

A belly shot from 37 weeks.  I was really trying to stick it out, since people are still telling me that I don't look pregnant.

I remember crying in the shower until the hot water ran out every morning. These last few days are the hardest so just consider your day a success if you get out of bed and keep your daughter alive. You look absolutely beautiful by the way. Love you!
