Dear Crissy

Full term & an elusive belly photo

Full Term

I am 37 weeks and 4 days pregnant.

I decided to break down, and slide a couple grainy belly photos in under the wire, to avoid possible future depression over my apparent miserable failure to visually document this pregnancy. So — I officially have at least a couple iPhone shots of my burgeoning belly. That’s something, right?

Belly Photo

My blood pressure has been a little high, and I had to do a 24-hour urine collection test this week to look for protein. I also had some blood drawn yesterday, and I’ll find out if there is reason to have the baby early when I get the results on Monday.

Oh, I’m 2cm dilated now! It’s amazing how gratifying it is to find out that you’ve made some cervical progress. It took a bit of restraint not to exclaim, “YESSSSSS!”

I went into labor with Evan at 38 weeks and 2 days, so, I really feel like this little one might be making her appearance soon.

We have a full moon tomorrow, maybe December 10th is the day? What do you think, any guesses?

    Hot mama! Can you pass that good luck this way so I can look like that at 38wks (I’m 20 right now)?!
