Enjoy some pictures from the shower!
As of 9/20 I am 36 weeks pregnant, technically 9 months. But as you may remember from my explanation when I was this far along with Harper, women are actually pregnant for 40 weeks which is 10 months. So we are 1 month away, let the count down begin! I have 4 doctors appointments left on the books, though I am hoping to not make it to my last one scheduled the day before my due date.
I am feeling fine still, though big and hot. I am still sleeping ok as far as comfort goes, but the "baby insomnia" is kicking in a bit. My mind is full of thoughts of my baby-to-be and how anxious I am to meet him and check things off my list before his arrival.
My hospital bag is packed and I am currently washing all the bed and bassinet linens, and getting the car seat ready.
When I hit 37 weeks after my next appointment, in which I should get another ultrasound to check his position and my fluid levels, (he has been head down for weeks and my fluid has been in the high range of normal) I intend to start drinking Red Raspberry Leaf tea (which is supposed to bring on contractions which "tone" the uterus for labor) and taking Evening Primrose Oil supplements (which is supposed to aid in cervical dilation and make labor easier). I will also stop being lazy (ha! I wish) and start to walk as often as I can and bounce on the ab ball to try and get things going!
In summary, we are ready. Ready to welcome the newest and last addition to our family. Ready to introduce our son to our wonderful daughters. Ready to not be pregnant anymore or EVER AGAIN!
