So this is officially my last week before I hit the big 4-0!! I just can’t believe it and even though the doctor thinks I’ll go past my 40 Week date it’s still crazy to think I’ll be FULLY full term within 7 days!
Here’s what’s going on according to Babycenter!
Your baby’s waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it’s likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.
Nothing about a mini WATERMELON sounds appealing when you think about the fact that it has to come out of my va-jay-jay! I’m SO NOT looking forward to that part. Although I really REALLY don’t want a c-section so I’m really hoping he comes on his own just a couple of days late! We’ll see I guess right?!
So How do I feel? I feel pretty good which is half the reason why I was pretty sure he was going to be late. I’m pretty sure I’ve been having Braxton Hicks Contractions and I’m not really a fan of those although I am a fan of what they are practicing for. I’ve been really tired lately too. I can sleep for days I think. But I don’t which is good…I guess. 7 more days just doesn’t seem realistic and I think it’s absolutely insane that within the next 2 weeks at most I’ll be a MOM! Does that even make sense to anyone? Because sometimes it doesn’t to me. I mean a year ago was so different. I had so many different expectations of how my life was going to turn out. Everything happens for a reason though. And I can’t wait to meet the little guy…although I can wait cause the idea of being a Mom is kinda scary. Also my birthday is 2 weeks from now so I can wait for that too…I’m getting too close to 25, which is way too close to 30…sh*t where has the time gone? Anyway that was a ramble if I ever saw one soooo….
