These are just 2 pictures we got from our maternity pictures that we took on Thursday. I cant wait to see the rest of them. We took well over 200 pictures! I really wanted a picture with our wedding rings and I have not been able to wear my wedding ring in about a week and I tried to squeeze it on and it fit just fine. I was so excited that I was able to wear it at least for the pictures. My fingers are nice and swollen and not able to wear them now.
I have had several of my students tell me that Thursday as in 3 days from now they are taking bets that Morgan will be here. I really doubt it but I would laugh if they were right. Ive always said that if I can make it to Wednesday Ill be good to go since all my students will be done making things up and well I should have everything graded I hope. We will see what Morgan decides to do, my guess is she will not be here for a few more weeks, she is too cozy in there to come out now:)
How Far Along: 37 weeks
Total Weight Gained/Loss: gain 30 lbs overall (-1.2 lbs this week)-yes I really am 37 weeks and lost weight-how I have no clue. I did say I wanted to stay under 35 lbs right!
Best Moment of the Week: seeing our little angel on Thursday. Of course she had to cover her little face with her hands. Im convinced she will come out and put her hands right over her cute little face, that is how she likes to be in every single sonogram.
Movement: lots and lots. She is getting lower and lower which means I can breath a bit better but she still loves to kick me right in the side still.
Food Craving: chicken
Food aversions: have not cared too much for the thought of meat
Morning sickness: nausea has really starting to hit bad again (read up and its a sign that the baby is dropping)
Gender: a GIRL-Morgan Elizabeth
Labor Signs: lots of contractions but not real pattern, quite a few contractions that have become very painful but seem to have disappeared since that one night
Belly Button: in for now
What I miss: not going to the bathroom all the time and being able to sleep being comfortable for an entire night.
What I'm looking forward to: seeing if I made any progress on Thursday afternoon
Weekly Wisdom: Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next. ~Franklin P. Jones (this one seems perfect this week as we start the final countdown to meet our precious little angel!)
Milestones: she has dropped big time! She is right on my bladder and it really does feel like a huge watermelon right on my bladder.
