36 weeks. And this was my first week of maternity leave, during which I managed to stay quite busy doing laundry, walking Southpaw, swimming, eating an entire loaf of raisin bread, watching Grey’s Anatomy, 16 and Pregnant, and napping.
By the end of this week, I’ll be considered full term, and I will be allowed to deliver at the natural birth centre in the pool, so I hope she stays in there this whole week. So crazy that there could be a baby here so soon! Baby weighs almost 6 pounds now and is as long as she’ll be at birth (I’d be happy for her to not get too much bigger, as well). I have been trying really hard to get her into a good position, but time will tell if it’s working. I can feel body parts, but it’s hard to tell what’s what. I think I felt a baby butt up at the top of my abdomen earlier this week and something is poking me directly into my lower right hip all of the time (an elbow, maybe?), making it very hard to bend over.
We are almost ready for her arrival. The clothes are all washed and mostly put away, and I just have a bit of work left in the nursery (pictures to come soon), and I need to finish packing our hospital bag. Then thundercats are gooooo!
