37 weeks

Oh yes my sweets - I'm still here. I know that any lapse of blogging (though it is normal for me these days) puts you all in a dither about whether or not I'm actually in labor. Well, as you can see - I am still pretty thoroughly pregnant. :)

Good pregnancy stuff: The baby is still in her prime positioning and seems quite "happy" as my midwife put it. No idea where I am for dilation/effacement as it's not normal to do internal exams here until you're already in labor. So, your guess is as good as mine in that department. The Braxton Hicks contractions are either getting stronger or I've had some early labor contractions over the past week. But nothing that stuck and nothing that lasted. I'm going for a referral to the physiotherapist tomorrow who are supposed to give me some blessed maternity belt to help with this stabbing pain in my pelvis. That's what I get for having a baby that's so far down and engaged - a pelvis stabbing.

Not so fantastic pregnancy stuff: The aforementioned stabbing - obviously. And Matt's away from Thursday morning to Monday night. So pray with me that she stays firmly put until at least Monday night. We don't think she's coming as we haven't seen any indicators of labor being imminent. I feel okay about Matt going with the understand that he can get back here before his return flight if it's necessary.

And here's my versions of sucking it in. Here's the most poked out - they go "up" from there.

Don't the blinking. But funny isn't it? I don't suck it in normally - just found it funny.

  1. Gosh, that kid's just out there, isn't she!

    You look radiant, dear, truly. I'm praying with you!

  2. Well, you look adorable as usual & you also look like you're about to pop. Speaking from experience, you probably feel like you're about to pop, too! I will be praying for you & praying that Matt is back home before the blessed event!!! Are you still planning a home birth? I haven't heard you mention it lately & was just wondering!! Well, good luck & I'll be praying for you!!! BTW, I love Joshua's home day ornament. Such a sweet reminder of a precious boy!

  3. wow susie, you look great! You are all belly and really cute!

  4. I would stand in front of the mirror and "suck it in" when I was WAY pregnant too. And then I would dissolve into fits of laughter because well, it was FUNNY. And then I would groan because laughing hard would send me into a fit of braxton hicks...

    You are beautiful and glowing and perfectly pregnant! :)


  5. Glad to see and hear everything is good....Can't wait to see your new daughter's beautiful face!

  6. Oh giRL,
