I am seriously going to post an eviction notice
I know I said that the last pregnancy update was going to be the last one, but this really is the last one. Here’s me as of Sunday, October 9. Yes, we are past due. However, first babies are typically late (why?) and due dates are just estimates anyway (only 5% of babies are born on them).
Until last week, I had been feeling okay but I started having back pain when I stand or walk. Getting to sleep has been pretty much impossible (which explains why I am posting this at 2 am!), let alone staying asleep. Also, even though everyone has said that they run out of room at the end and move less, my kid hasn’t gotten the memo and is constantly squirming. It feels like she’s beating me up from the inside. She likes to stick her butt out and stretch her legs so you can literally see a defined bump or point on my right side.
This baby must really like it inside of me because she has not made any in-roads towards coming out. (As you can see in the photo, she has not dropped yet.) Can you blame her? It’s warm, squishy, dark and she never has to worry about what time dinner will be served. I keep trying to tell her how cool it will be when she comes out- how her dad and I will hug her all the time and give her lots of kisses, but she doesn’t know from that yet. My brother and his fiance have even said they will give her a cookie if she comes out soon. However, if she does not emerge on her own, we will be inducing labor at the end of the week so keep your eyes open for an announcement this weekend.
