My Journal

37 Weeks!

OK, maybe not quite 37 weeks, yet...according to this site. LOL! Depends on who you ask. My OBGYN would say it was yesterday...my High Risk doctor and this site as well as a couple other sites would say it's tomorrow...so I go with the majority...lol.

It's funny...I haven't written nearly as many Journals during my pregnancy as I did when I was TTC. I guess I had more time on my hands back then.

I can't believe I will be having my little man in about 2 weeks. I say 2 weeks because I have to be induced a week early...doctor says it's because I have G.D. and I am on Lovenox. A little bummed about that. I was really hoping for a St Patty's Day baby, even though we aren't Irish (as far as I know). But I am slowly getting over that. I can't help but shake the feeling that he will want to come sooner than that anyways...lol. The low back pain, the period like cramping and his heaviness I have been feeling in the pubic bone area...I don't think we would make it that far. If he does decide to come before induction date, I just want him to wait until late next week. I am getting our house cleaned and I still have so much to do before he get here and I need my hubby's help to get most of it done.

I am so excited and so emotional these past few days. I am so excited because I am finally getting my dream of having a family and having my baby and so emotional and nervous because my dream is finally coming true...not sure if that makes sense. I think mostly I am nervous that something will go wrong or somehow I will screw something up. I have never had to deal with this much responsibility...I mean shoot the last time I had to babysit and change a diaper was when I was in Jr High...8th grade! I am 39 years old now! That was about 25 years ago...lol! I know I can do it...just feeling hormonal and emotional.

I have truly enjoyed feeling my baby lately moving around inside me. He has been head down for quite some time. But I have definitely felt him squirming around inside. Sometimes I have a hard time telling if he is stretching his legs out or if I am having Braxton Hicks. I think part of me is worried that I might suffer through Postpartum depression because my Grandmother went through it. But if I can remember the pain I am going through at the end here maybe that will help me get through that rather quickly...lol.

I will try to get one more Journal in before I go into labor...if not I will definitely write out an entry when my little man arrives. :)

But for now I am going to print these out and put them in his baby book. Or if there are too many, I plan to put these and the TTC journals in a binder. So when he turns a certain age he will get them and see how much he was wanted. :)

The picture posted is of the bassinet for our room. Has an incline in it for baby's first month or 2. Heard it was a good idea.
