This is the week I've been waiting for.
A week from now, I will be free from office life for about 3.5 months. I spent today wrapping up some work and hanging out in my bed. I am just so tired and uncomfortable. Really, this isn't for the faint of heart. Baby is BIG and heavy at this point, I think we're both uncomfortable and cramped. Baby squirms around in there like I do when I'm trying to get to sleep, side to side, wiggle wiggle. I must say, it's quite the bonding experience. But please baby, get into my pelvis.
I'm 37 weeks today, "early term", whatever that means. I'm holding out until 42 weeks if baby doesn't come on his or her own. That's still 5 weeks.. that sounds unbearable but it's what both my mom and my MIL when through (both went into labor naturally at 42 weeks). I have not dropped. I am not seeing any labor signs. Just hanging tough.
The trim has been completed in the living room, yay. We are puttying holes this weekend and painting early next week. With a little luck, I can bring in my couch and a Christmas tree middle of next week.
Here I am, waiting and trying to wrap up my pre-baby life.
