30 years old today and 38 wks, 3days Preggo!!

Sunday, July 25, 2010

So's my birthday and it's been a lovely breezy, humidity-free Chicago day. Derek, Maeve and I hit the Randolph Street Antique of my fave things to do during the summer. Didn't buy a thing but got lots of inspiration for all of my decorating ideas! Derek got me a beautiful engraved locket necklace that fits two tiny pictures...perfect for my two little girls!

I am feeling WAY pregnant and have been researching labor and full moons like mad as there is a full moon at 1:38 am tomorrow morning. There's both supposedly no scientific validity to the theory that the full moon brings on labor and yet tons of evidence that it does! L & D nurses seem to swear by it!! Baby girl's arrival would be an awesome bday present, lol!

Had my 38 wk appt. on Friday and was feeling really off that day. LOTS of cramping and contractions. Didn't help that the heat index was at 105 degrees! I gained a half a pound bringing my total to 28 pounds. I am happy with this and would love to keep it at 28 until baby comes! The midwife was guessing that the baby was roughly 7 lbs, 10 ounces at this point...getting big! I just hope that the head's not too big-lol! Maeve's measured 95th percentile-yikes! Overall everything is great...cervix hasn't dilated anymore but is thinning out. The midwife said that not being more than a cm dilated means nothing. She said "You could go into labor tonight". So now it's just a waiting game...

Me and Maeve today...When my husband asked her who's birthday it was today she said, "The baby's"...!!! Here's hoping she's a little psychic...

    I can only hope that I can look as fabulous as you when I'm pregnant! Congrats on turning 30, and keeping your weight & health under great control during your pregnancy. I had a friend that just had his baby born on his birthday, who knows maybe it'll happen. emoticon
