38 weeks ugh...

Ok so now its week 38. This child needs to come on with it! Last Thursday Dr. Zapata said i was 1cm dilated but 0% effaced and still posterior. UGH.... i really want him to be born already!! I try to remain in good spirits and not complain but i'm very uncomfortable 90% of the time now. Jesse is starting a new job and new shift at work beginning the 29th so i really hope he is born before then. I'm surprisingly calm about the upcoming labor. I know it will be intense, but it'll be so worth it. I am nervous, but not about the labor itself. Unfortunately things don't always present an ideal situation, and anything can happen. The possibility of a C-section scares me some. I've never had a major surgery like that, and i hope to avoid it.  I've said it before but if you have never seen The Business of Being Born i HIGHLY suggest it.  The good thing about my job is that i will get at least 6 weeks off and still get a paycheck (thank goodness) I finally got bottles! My mom bought him some and i bought him some. I decided to go with the Playtex premium nurser drop-in's. The great thing about them is that if you breastfeed you can pump directly into the liners and they come with seals for storage. Besides that the disposable liner's make for less dish washing and sanitizing. I didn't know it at first but they're one of the highest rated bottles out there and they're reasonably priced.

Exciting event of the day... Emily came and did some preggo pictures of me and some of abigale and I! The picture at top is a preview... I cant wait to see them all!

  1. This is so sweet. I know Abigale will be thrilled to have this later in life. I did NOT want to, but I made myself take some super-preggo photos with me and Violet.
