I am officially 38 weeks and 4 days into my pregnancy. I am just so close to seeing and holding my babygirl. I cant even believe I am 1 week and 3 days from the big DAY! I am super scared and excited at the same time. As of right now, I am just over being pregnant. I just feel extremely tired from the weight and it doesnt help when I only get 4 hours or less of sleep. At night, sleeping is getting more and more uncomfortable only because I am continuously getting braxton hicks and pressure down south lol. At times it hurts so bad I literally have to get up and start walking around my room at 4am to avoid the pain. This past Wednesday January 2nd I went in for my 38 weeks appointment. As per usual they did a urine test, weighed me in, tested my blood pressure, and I finally got my cervix examined. I was not dilated and 0% effaced =( This news sort of bummed me out because I was hoping for some progress. Again, I was told not to be too concerned because a woman can go from 0% dilated to 4 cm within hours. Currently I am trying some natural ways to speed up my labor by testing out the old wives tales. For example, eating spicy food, sex, walking, going up and down the stairs, and of course dancing lol. My next appointment is on January 8th so hopefully by then I have made some movement.
Baby: Sophia is almost 20 inches long and weighs roughly 7lbs. Her lanugo and vernix will continue to shed as the weeks continue. Her lungs are becoming more stronger and mature meaning all her systems are in works!!!! I am so excited to see my bundle of joy. I hope you dolls are having a lovely evening on this wonderful Thursday night because I am sure having a blast dancing around and jamming to my favorite songs. See you all at 39 weeks.
Love, peace, and happiness
xoxo Mommy L
