So..... We are really close to seeing this little face!
I can't even stand how beautiful and cute and perfect she is already.
I know I am partial but seriously, she's way extra cute.
She has my chin. I like that.
I'm 38 1/2 weeks today. I feel a little extra round. Actually, really crooked. Her butt is up on top and her body is to the left. Head down and feet to the right. Today, I have felt her knees and elbows stickin' out which is nice. She has slowed down with her movements a lot. It hurts when she moves sometimes but I miss all those flips and flops she used to do a lot. She gets the hiccups frequently. It's cute. ESPECIALLY after praise and worship at church. She is trying to sing, I just know it!
Her lungs are growing and getting lots of exercise :)
Her head feels like it want to come out. That's the only way I can say it without getting graphic and use awkward body part names that would make you burp.
But you get the picture, yes?
I had a 3 hour stint of REAL contractions last Saturday. I thought that this was it but it wasn't. She's just doing things a little at a time. Which, I very much appreciate. I think and hope that will make labor and delivery just a little easier.
At my last dr.'s visit, I was dilated to 4cm and 60-70% effaced and she was at -1 station.

It's going to happen soon.
Early? Maybe. Overdue, who knows. It's possible. I am hoping for the former not the latter.
The good news is: she has to come out VERY soon.
We are getting so close!
So let's just take a little journey through my pregnancy, shall we?
I thought I was starting to show here:
just a little bitty pooch, still thought it was huge. And it was, for me. Oh! And this was the picture that started a facebook hubbub about me possibly carrying twins. REALLY? I looked "normal" I think.
this was when she was the size of an avacado and my
hair started to get all 70's-esque on me.It was fluffy and I had wings.
Again, I was still learning how to deal with the pregnancy poofy, thick hair here.
This is when I felt pregnant but not "great with child"
This was a good stage :)
We got our maternity pics done..
Lookin' stripey here.
And HELLLLLOOOOO 9 months:
I love this kid. I love that she just sticks right out.
What a doll baby.
I will gladly lose my waist anyday (i.e.: 9 months) for this cause.
I will gladly sleep little bits here and there because of hip pain and random hot flashes.
I would gladly wait again to have a pregnancy that has been this easy, this amazing, this celebrated and this joyful. I have LOVED being pregnant. And while my belly will soon feel empty, I cannot wait to have full arms.
Annny day now..
