We’re officially at week 38 of this pregnancy today, and I don’t think I’ve ever been more anxious in my entire life.
On Monday I had my weekly check-up with my OB/GYN and I had some pretty good progress since the week before. Still only 1 cm dilated, but I was approximately 60% effaced and the baby had dropped a LOT. When I talked with our doula that evening, she said she thought that if we don’t have a baby this week, it will definitely be next. She does NOT think I will make it to our due date of August 8th.
As of today, there’s not much going on. If I’ve had contractions, I don’t know it. I have had some other ‘signs’ of early labor over the past week, but I will spare you the details.
The nursery has been complete for a while now, and I feel like there isn’t anything else we could possibly need for this little person who will be joining us. (I’m sure that feeling will fly right out the window one second after we bring him/her home.)
