I'm almost 37 weeks which will make me full term. I've quit taking my Procardia medicine and had my last shot last week. I have a doc appt on Tues. and he said we would talk about delivery then if I hadn't had her yet. I was really hoping to go into labor on my own this weekend but that's not looking too promising. I'm just so ready to have her in my arms even though the realness of labor is starting to make me nervous. Oh and as of last Tuesday I've gained 18 lbs!
How far along? 36 weeks, 4 days
Maternity clothes? Yep!
Stretch marks? Yes at the bottom of my stomach and they seem to be increasing every day.
Sleep? At least 4 bathroom breaks every night and it almost hurts to roll over.
Best moment this week? Nothing....
Movement? Yes but I feel her just moving around more now instead of kicks. She's running out of room though so sometimes it almost hurts when she starts moving.
Food cravings? Not many this week
Gender? Still a GIRL!!!
Labor signs? Lots of Braxton Hicks and a few real ones
What I miss? Being able to roll over in bed, bend over, and fit into my normal clothes.
What I'm looking forward to? Having her!!
Belly Button, innie or outtie? Innie
Emotions: Excited, anxious, worried and of course I can't remember anything!
Milestones this week: None this week, just feeling a few real contractions. Hoping to go into labor real soon!

Now that I'm on bedrest I have a lot of time on my hands. My cousin had given me a book to read and I finally got around to reading it Friday. Yes I read a whole book in one day except for the last 5 pages which I read the next morning. It's called "Between Sundays" by Karen Kingsbury. The book is about a boy who's mother dies and he ends up living with her best friend. His mother had told him his father was a famous quarterback for the 49ers so he sets out to find him and let him know he's his son. The book is also about the 2nd string quarterback who is very into his faith and is a witness to the 1st string quarterback (the boy's father.) After reading this book I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good read. I'm hoping to be able to read more of Karen Kingsbury's books.
