Meeting the baby tomorrow

Its May 19th, I’m home listening to the thunder. Sounds like there is going to be a storm – the perfect day to spend my last moments with my baby in my tummy.

I will be 40 weeks tomorrow and the doctor is a little worried that she is growing so much. So, looks like I am going to be induced tomorrow morning. Going to bed tonight is going to be difficult. Scared, nervous, excited just too many emotions running through my head. I’ve had some small contractions for the last couple of weeks and if that us any indication for the pain I will be having tomorrow….then wowza. I am seriously a wimp, and have low pain tolerance.

I know women have been having babies since the dawn of time but I just never thought this day will come. The only thing keeping me positive is that I will meet our daughter soon. That by the end of this weekend – all the stretch marks, throwing up, the peeing while coughing and waddling around will be worth it. Also, thank goodness for my husband, every night when I am wincing in pain from contractions he is rubbing my back, helping me in and out of bed and going on late night runs to Whataburger!!! My sisters and parents are another pillar of strength for me. Their excitement puts me at ease and helps me try to enjoy these last few hours before I go to the hospital.

Here are the last few belly pics. Weeks 36 – 39.

Baby talk

I am already a busty, curvy, short chick so my first selfish thought when I got pregnant last fall was…..”OMG my boobs are going to explode!” I really thought I would sink into a mode were perhaps I would feel weird with gaining weight and a belly. I just didn’t know what to expect.

At 31 weeks (roughly 7 months), I can confidently say I really love having this belly! Every week I am getting bigger and bigger, barely able to roll out a bed without my husband helping – losing balance and having my clothes get tighter and tighter but I’m loving it all.

At this point, our baby is punching and moving like crazy. She must be super metal and thrashing about in there. Sometimes it hurts, sometimes my bladder seems to her favorite toy to play with, then there are these moments where she hiccups and I can sit there and watch the belly move all day.

My husband has been drawing pictures of our pregnancy and our sleeping arrangements have been kinda unfair towards him. Seriously, my dude has been a trooper. From the late night cravings, throwing up, belly rubs and massages – my hubby has been amazing! Never getting annoyed when I get into whiny mode.
