38 Weeks

We've made it another week! Again, who knew? Well, if I don't have Miss Sophia by next week she is being evicted on the 24th. That's right, evicted.  I am nervous about being induced, but at the same time I'm ready to have her and meet her.  I am so done being pregnant! Another good thing: I had my last trip to the hospital for my NST's and ultrasounds! You have no idea how exciting this was!
Look exciting doesn't it?
I actually had 3 contractions while hooked up, so maybe that's a good sign she'll come on her own before next week. I did have a talk with her and told her she was being evicted next week, so it would be so much better if she just cooperated and did this on her own. I'm not sure she's going to listen to me though.  Stubborn girl.  They measured and weighed her today too. She is at 5 pounds 6 ounces and measurements were fine.  That's a good weight I think. The bigger she is the more likely I'll have to have a c-section.  We got a few more ultrasound pictures too. One is a regular and the other is a 3-D one.  We saw her sucking on her fingers and hand!

A foot! A foot that's been pushing on my ribs!

Here's her cute little face! You can definitely tell she has my nose here!

So, no matter what happens, I will definitely be having this chickpea next week! :)

How exciting! I love reading about everyone's pregnancy, I didn't get hooked up to anything during my pregnancy! Up until I delivered, I wasn't checked for dilation or anything. Funny how doctors are so different!

Are you looking forward to updating that "aspiring" mom to just "mom"? I can't wait to see pictures of her when she's out. So cool that we've been able to follow you along the way. Congrats, my friend! I knew this would happen for you. I've known it for over a decade!
