Preggo Stuff - 39 Weeks

Feb 23, 2012

Greetings, my lovely cupcakes!
I've been slacking on the ol' blog lately but I'm still here. and still very pregnant.

I am currently 39 weeks and 4 days...and ready to pop.

Please don't focus in on this pic too much.
I'm looking wretched lately. That's what gaining 19 lbs look like.
Yes, I'm now at 19. BLEH.

I'm grateful to have had such an easy pregnancy but to be honest with you, in the past few weeks, things have really started going downhill. I've have had the worst back pain and pressure in my lady parts that it's almost too hard to walk sometimes. By mid day I practically walk hunched over. And after overdoing it this past weekend trying to get last minute things done at the house (including painting the kitchen!!), I truly thought I might go into labor Sunday night. No such luck though.

So with all this pain, I went into my OB appt yesterday ready to beg to be induced this week. But wouldn't you know it, I'm still only 1/2 cm dilated and about 40% effaced. No progress whatsoever since the last appt. TMI but the doctor even tried to get in there to strip some of the membranes but everything is so closed off she couldn't do it. It was painful to say the least. OB said she's afraid to push me into an induction that might just end up in a c-section since my body is clearly not ready. And I completely agree.

Now the plan is, if V doesn't come before then, I will be admitted to the hospital next Thursday night and be induced at 7am on Friday, March 2nd. Now it's up to Miss V whether she wants to be a February or March baby :) I'm ok either way because she'll still be a Pisces! (Yes, I totally believe in astrology in case you didn't know ;) It's just funny because at my second OB appt (it seems so long ago now!) my doctor had mentioned that I might possibly be due more towards the beginning of March but she kept me at the Feb. 26th due date because the baby was growing accordingly. Funny how March might now be the month!

No matter the complaints, it's all worth it for her and I'm just so ready to meet this little girl. This crazy active little girl who's recently started booty dancing (it's hilarious to watch my belly move). I've even tried taking video of it but the moment I start the camera she stops. Then when I give up and put the camera down, she starts up again. It's like she knows!!

So no matter what happens, by next weekend I will be a MOM! Bring it on! :)

I can't believe that you'll be a mom so soon no matter what!! It's so exciting :D

I'm sorry you're having so much more pain lately. I hope you don't have to deal with work much longer so you can relax a little before baby girl gets here.

Sarah said...

Sawyer's original due date was 2/26 too! However, he decided he was too cool to keep the world waiting (and my BP decided the same) so he arrived 2/10 (by induction). Girl I know that feeling of just wanting baby OUT and in your arms, hang in there!

Heather said...

I measured ahead at my appointment yesterday, so I'm curious if they'll change my date!

You seriously look so good!! I hope Miss V gets busy soon!

Ashlee Miller said...

Eeeee she will be here REALLY soon! So excited for you friend.

Jessica said...

Oooh! I'm so excited to meet Baby V!! And I have a guess at her name, but I have to wait to find out if I'm right! :)

M.R. said...

Yay- that's exciting!

I thought maybe it had happened already- but at least the end is in sight!

(and still possibly on the 29th lol!)

The Branches said...

home stretch! Come on baby girl! I know this won't make you feel better but I went up to 41 weeks and hence Connor was 10 pounds....they need to come out before you have a HUGE baby LOL!

Jean said...

Mrs. W. said...

Aaaaah that's so crazy that one way or another you'll be a mom by next weekend! Holy cow! Then it's my turn. :)

Sorry you're so uncomfortable now but the end is in sight! Thinking of you!

Tricia said...

So I know I haven't been around the blogosphere for a while, but omigosh I can't believe you're due soon! I feel like it was just yesterday that you shared that you were pregnant. And now she'll be joining soon! So glad you've been taking belly shots too, I think you're beautiful pregnant. You must be so excited to meet her!

Christina said...

HOME STRETCH! 19 is not bad at all and you look so cute! I gained 21 with Milo and lost it within two months without trying (breastfeeding helps). Now if I could just get rid of the first 20 I gained with Nolan!!! I hope you get a surprise over the weekend!

Amy Childress said...

i hope all goes well with the delivery!!! the next time we will see u (hopefully) u will be a new momma!!!!

Seni said...

You look great. Hopefully you are able to get some rest this weekend.

Maybe she will be born on the 29th!

Suze said...

Wow it's so surprising that she's still not here! Maybe she'll come on leap day! :) I hope for your sake that she gets here soon.

PS- You look good! Very cute and very pregnant. :)

Girl, I was exactly the same as you - no progress at all (dilation/effacement) and that stripping of membrane stuff hurt like hell and didn't help. I don't want to scare you but I ended up in a c-section (which you know) but don't let it freak you out because either way a baby will be here. You will be fine and she will be beautiful. I swear I'm checking twitter all the time to make sure you're not in labor!! :)
