Recap of weeks 4-38

Starting Week 39

I am officially really sick of being pregnant.


Starting Week 38 - any day now

I am finally full term and Gavin can technically be born at any time. The average week a healthy baby is born is between 37-42. I definitley won't go over my due date because I have the option to induce if I get to that point (which I hope I don't have to wait that long). We are getting the house ready for visitors so we dont have to do a lot of cleaning after Gavin is born. I made Ian a honeydo list! We have been walking daily and I have been going to the gym between 2-3 times a week to do weights and eliptical for the entire 9 months. Recently more people come up to me and request I don't have the baby at the gym... Here is my picture this week. I am huge...


Starting Week 37 - 9 months!

So this is what 9 months looks like? I am big and can only escape the stretch marked belly for so long... I am hoping to keep my belly at bay theses last few weeks... Full term is 37 weeks, so at the end of this week I am considered full-term. If Gavin were to be born now though, he would be fine, they would just watch him to make sure he had no problems.

I have been having braxton hicks contractions for 2 days now... they are very frequent. They haven't seem to be getting worse so I haven't seriously started to time them at this point.

The doctor told me last week that they will start checking for dilation this week. I am excited to know if I am getting anywhere with that... She also told me she is giving me the option to be induced the week of January 22nd IF I am dilating well, due to her being absent the week before and of my due date... Everything is coming to an end here, but I feel like it is taking forever! I am so ready to have this baby!


Starting Week 36 -- Almost there!

I had a Texas baby shower today hosted by my friend Lauren. It was nice... we had fun. It was 72 degrees out today or maybe even warmer, it was beautiful out! Ian went golfing. Here is my 35 week picture! I am now in week 36... I go to the doctors every week now and they start checking for dilation soon.
