38 weeks photo and an update
Thursday, February 14, 2013
This is a photo that I took after my Valentines' date with my hubby. I also got a haircut today. Now it's much shorter, so hopefully it will be easier to manage to look nice without too much effort. I tried to smile, but this was the expression that came out, lol. Smiling is difficult when you are always tired and uncomfortable!
Today I had another doctor's appointment. They told me that I am one centimeter dilated and 50% effaced... which means the cervix has thinned out some so it shouldn't be too long! Also, when they put on the heart rate monitor the monitor had to be placed much lower than last week, which means the baby has dropped, which is also a good thing. I can definitely feel a difference from last week. I have more lower back pain, and there is a lot more downward pressure. So yyyeah...I am quite uncomfortable but I am trying to do a little more around the house. Maybe the extra movement will get the labor going a bit quicker. Today I did some laundry, the dishes, and swept and mopped my living room, kitchen and bathroom.
I hope everyone is doing well. I am sooo ready to get this baby out and meet my little girl.
