38 Weeks and 3 Days


My first pregnancy post was 7 weeks. People always talk about how time flies but, honestly, it really does! It seems unreal that I am so close to meeting the little guy that has been growing in me since November! He's already so special to me. I can't wait for us to give him a name and bring him home. I can't wait for Alfie to meet him and get used to him. I know he'll be protective but loving.

Things haven't been too bad at all. I probably complain more than I should. My left hip is still bothering me and I can't walk far without having contractions. I also can't walk too fast at all. I don't sleep very well at night. Mostly because my whole body is just plain uncomfortable. I also have some really weird dreams that will wake me up. Oh, and don't forget the peeing! Always the peeing! I know I've had a good sleep when I only had to wake up twice to go to the bathroom. LOL!

I had a doctor's appointment today and he said that if I make it to my next appointment then he will do an internal exam just to see what's going on. I wouldn't be surprised if I'm already a tiny bit dilated. That can usually start 2-3 weeks before baby actually comes. He hasn't dropped yet but that could happen at any time. I really would like not to have to think about another doctor's appointment but none of this is on my terms! I have to trust my body with it all.

Here are my 38 week photos (I know it's a few days after the exact week but I needed batteries for the camera.)
