I type this on my last day of week 39. It's funny. No matter how much I think I can figure this pregnancy thing out, I'm rarely right. For various reasons, I've been pretty convinced that Abigail would come before her due date. Well, unless it happens in the next 10 hours (which is possible but unlikely), I will be incorrect yet again. Part of me finds it humorous, part of me finds it annoying. So here I am, waiting - trying to be patient. Each day of the wait is inevitably one day closer to meeting her, right?
It's been a really laid back week this week overall. That's a plus. I had about two days of nausea and not feeling well. I'm not sure what was going on but it went away quickly. For that, I'm very grateful as I feared I may be getting a stomach virus or something. I didn't plan much this week in case I went in to labor so it's made things seem a little slower as well. I guess I got to get some rest ahead of time - no complaints there.
My midwife checkup was much simpler this time. I gained about 1/2 lb and my measurements went back up to about 34/35 weeks (at 39w2d). Otherwise, there was really nothing new and exciting to announce. I was in and out in about 15 minutes. After my last appointment, that was a true gift!
I don't really have much else to update. It's been pretty uneventful. Just pray for my patience as we wait. Considering my last two babies were both a week past due date, I may need some grace!
