So I remember last summer when my sweet friend Christina had a post VERY similar to this one. It was about her being 9 months pregnant and all of the fun that went with it. I remember thinking how she must not feel very great and it must be so hot for her. Now I have a WHOLE NEW APPRECIATION for how she really felt!
I am feeling HUGE! I feel like I have run out of room for this little boy. I am hot. My back hurts. My feet are killing me (though I still don't have cankles- WOOHOO!). My tummy is stretched to the max (though I have no stretch marks!). I LOOOOOVED being pregnant for 8 months. But these last few weeks have been pretty tough! I know I am not going through anything that any other mom hasn't gone through. I am still so BLESSED that I am healthy, up and moving, and everything is going great. I realize that I am complaining and a lot of you out there are thinking, "Shut up lady. You don't have a clue how bad it could be." I get that.
So that's why I am done complaining (to you guys- I will probably still complain a little to my mom and Anthony).
But honestly, I can't believe it's almost time! I mean, it could be ANY day!
I had my 37 week doctor's appointment today. I am 50-60% effaced and 1/2 cm dilated! Woohoo! hahahah I know that is NOTHING, but even if it's a LITTLE progress it still makes me feel good! :) Otherwise the baby and I are good and healthy. My doctor is on-call this weekend in case I should go into labor, but she sweetly told me not to count it- it will be another couple weeks...
On another note, I interviewed a FABULOUS pediatrician today! I LOOOOVE her and the group and am excited to use them!
On a final note- here is a 9 month prego pic of me! Hopefully I won't make it to a 10 month pic, but you never know... :)
