38 weeks

I'm really in the homestretch now!  I can't believe he will be here in about 2 weeks.  I'm not going to do any more of those weekly updates, cause it repeats a lot of info from week to week at this point.  I'm feeling pretty good - actually, better than I felt in the last update.  He has moved down a bit, so the rib pain has subsided a lot.  I'm sleeping well and only getting up twice in the night to pee.  I'm still having a few BH contractions every day, but nothing painful.  His head seems to be pretty far down, but he's still not fully engaged according to the doc.  When he is moving around I occasionally get some pain and weird feelings in the cervix / vagina area, but nothing super painful.  I gained another 5 lb in the last 2 weeks, but I shouldn't gain much more at this point.  I think I've gained about 30 lb at this point, which I'm happy about.  My hands and feet are pretty swollen, but I can still wear flip flops.  It's worst when I wake up in the morning.  It is SUPER HOT here in New Jersey (over 100 today) so I'm staying indoors with a large quantity of decaf iced tea!  Click here for the obligatory belly pic.

Things are getting exciting - I'll keep everyone updated!


  1. Glad things are going well these last weeks for you. Gives we hope that it won't be so bad when I get there.

  2. Great pic! You are almost there, can't wait to hear the news.
    I am so curious about your Jersey location, I grew up there and still have lots of family there.

  3. So close! You're looking great! Yikes, it's actually a little hotter up there than in TX; definitely stay inside as much as possible.
