Week 38

We're at week 38 now. Not a whole lot has changed since last week. I am experiencing recognizable contractions, but nothing regular. Weight & blood pressure are the same. Dr. Dix says I am effacing, but I'm not dilating yet. Baby is still quite content where he is, but I suspect he may be getting antsy too. I base this on the pressure his head put son my pelvis. It's not comfortable for me, I don't know how it could be comfortable for him.

Friday had my little shower with my 4 friends from church. I had a great time, and we got a ton of baby clothes. He's gonna look so adorable! He even got a Baby's First Easter outfit. We also got a jolly jumper, which I always loved as a kid.

So, next Tuesday is my last appointment before the due date. Geoff will come with me, as we will talk to Dr. Dix then about setting a date for inducement, in case Elijah doesn't come before the 13th. I really hope he comes before then, as I would really rather not be induced.

Please feel free to check the other blog once in while, as I may call and post an audio note when the baby comes. Also, I posted a photo of the bassinet, one of the baby outfits from the shower, and a picture of me from last week. The link to the photos is on the right.

The waiting continues....

    That's super cool! He'll be named Ryan right? Yeah, don't. Cool hearing from you in a belabored (yuk yuk) sense. Send pictures at some point! Good Ruck, as the Japanese would say (They might also say "gambatte," but more often then not, good ruck).
