I can’t believe i’m just 2 weeks away!!! It’s crazy!
So a little update:
So far no contractions yet, but I have been getting a little cramping which the doctor says it could be because my body is getting ready. I’ve gained a total of 34.5 pounds so far (164.5) I weighed in at the doctor this morning. The newest body morph is the pain in my hands, but mostly my left hand, it almost feels like arthritis (not that I know what that feels like, but i’m taking a guess) which I guess is common too? Trying to drink as much water as I can, which is making me pee almost 12 times a day!! ugh! The baby is in head down position which is good and the baby room is finally ready! woo hoo!
The biggest shock to me, which happened last week is how everyone treats you like you can go into labor any minute…it’s just crazy to think…but I guess i’m at the stage where I could! I did have an interesting experience at the doctor last week, they talked about “stripping my membrane” which in my 7 birthing/labor care classes NO ONE MENTIONED! Apparently it’s a way to induce labor naturally? I had not heard of it and i’m still debating about getting it done? maybe at 40 weeks?
