It’s been about a week since my last update, and not a whole lot has changed…
I’m still at 3cm, but I’m now 90% effaced, and little girl is pressing down on my cervix so, it could be any day now! We did a growth scan yesterday, and according to the sonographer, she’s weighing in at 7.5lbs. At 36 weeks. I guess little girl isn’t the right term for her, is it?
She’s healthy, and running out of room, hence the insane amount of pressure and stretching I’m experiencing. My OB has me coming in twice a week now to monitor my progress as I live 45 minutes from the hospital I’m delivering at, so we’d rather be safe than sorry! Everyone is gearing up for her arrival, which we all assume will be fairly soon…like next week sometime, if she holds off until after this weekend.
I’m tired….and sore….and having contractions on and off. I’m still working, but I’m dragging and I can tell it’s taking a toll on me. I’m ready to collapse by the time I get home, so I’m incredibly thankful to my MIL who has been checking on things at home so I don’t have to worry about cleaning when I get home every evening. We have the car packed and her car seat installed, now just waiting on her to decide when she’s ready to come to this side of the uterus.
And although she might be a little early…I’m ready for her to be here. I don’t think I’ve ever been more nervous and excited for something in my entire life. I know everything will change once she’s here, but it’s a very welcome change that both I and Tyler have been looking forward to for a LONG time. Yall just keep our little family in your thoughts, I don’t know if she’ll be here by my next update, but we shall see!
