We made it to full term. 37 weeks is considered full term medically and I have to say that I am so relieved to have gotten here. It seems so surreal that in about three weeks or so we are going to have a little baby to take care of! I am ready to meet her and see what she looks like and to start figuring out her personality!
I felt like my pregnancy has truly flown by. I remember very clearly finding out that I was pregnant way back in July. Now in just a few weeks I will get to see the little girl whose heartbeat I have grown to love and whose wiggling has at times driven me crazy! Everyone says that feeling the baby move is an awesome, joyous thing. I have to say that while it is those things, it can be more than a little annoying when you are trying to sleep. I'm sure I will miss having this close connection with Sarah when she gets here though.
Because I am officially full term, I am more than willing to try anything to get this baby out! Last night Ryan and I went out to have a dinner together as a couple. It could have been our last outing as a family of two. Who knows? I had eggplant Parmesan which is said to bring on labor so we shall see. I have also started walking a little bit each day to get her to drop. However I get winded much earlier than I ever have. So the walking isn't going as well as I like. So be watching for updates because Baby Sarah could show up any day now!!!
P.S. I lost 3 lbs at my last appointment. Which is good because last week I was up 6 lbs in one week which means that it was because of water retention and swelling from my high blood pressure. The blood pressure issue appears to have resolved itself.
