38 Weeks

I've made it to 38 weeks! 14 days left till my due date. I had my doctor's appointment on Friday when the doctor mentioned to me that not all women will go before their due date, and many first time moms are actually later than their due date. I really wanted to say, bite your tongue! But instead I nodded and said that I understand. Secretly hoping that wasn't the case for me.

I am feeling a lot more pelvic pressure and stretching, I am hoping that is all good things and it means that my body is transitioning into what will eventually be labor.

I am super excited to find out what we are having. I am not really nervous, just excited about everything. The only thing I am nervous about is that I do not want to deliver on 9/11. For obvious reasons, but if it happens, I'll deal with it.

Baby L has been head down now for several weeks, so that is great. Still feeling lots of movement. In fact I was over my best friends house and Baby L had a solid 10-15 minutes of movement so she actually got to feel some of the movements which she was absolutely thrilled about.

Another friend had come over to help me put away baby stuff and set up some other things. I really have some awesome friends and family who are all helping Ben and I bring a beautiful baby into this world.

According to my scale at my house, I am up 40 pounds. This seems like a lot to me, everyone tells me, but you're pregnant which I know, but it's the heaviest I've been ever... And I really do not want to do this again at this weight. I plan on focusing on losing some weight in between pregnancies.

So that's about it. Most of my updates have been on twitter. It just seems easier for me to quickly update there rather than do a formal blog post. So what's your guess.... boy or girl?
