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.
Next time I update, I’ll be a mom…..eeeek! For more quick updates and most likely pics of out baby girl will be posted on my instagram: mijavera
