Week 38
~ Getting Anxious

We've made it to week 38, had another doctor's visit and I was dilated to 1 1/2 cm and still 50% effaced. I have to admit, I was kind of hoping I would be a whole 2 cm dilated, but not quite there yet.

I've noticed I'm having a lot more swelling in my legs and feet which is really uncomfortable by the end of the day. Other than that I am actually still pretty comfortable. But I am getting impatient not knowing when this baby is going to show up. When I get up in the middle of the night to go the bathroom I always wonder if this it, is my water going to break? (that's how it happened with Ryan), or if I feel any type of contraction pain I wonder if it could be the start of something.

I tried long walks this weekend, nothing. I tried mopping all my floors and vacuuming the whole house, nothing. I took many trips up the stairs with large laundry baskets, nothing. So baby girl is still obviously happy and not quite ready yet. I know she'll come when she's ready, and I should just not worry about it. But I'm still hoping next week will bring us some action!
