38 Week Appt Update

Friday, April 17, 2009

We're still looking good for a May baby! :)

I've had a little progression, still 1 cm, but as my doctor said "it's 1 cm and a wiggle." I mean really, who says that?! Lol.

I'm officially unwed as of yesterday. I just don't feel comfortable with my ability to take my ring off due to water retention fluctuation. I tried wearing a couple of different rings on my wedding finger, but the bands are all so thin that they basically feel weightless, which defeats the purpose of wearing it in the first place!

It's ridiculous the small actions I'm still making with my hands when I wash them or do my hair. You guys know what I'm talking about right? The little corrective shake or the automatic readjustment with your thumb when you just know your right has slid a little much to one side? I still do that, even without a ring on!

I gained 2 lbs this week, so I'm officially at 30 lbs.

Still no stretch marks, but given Rachel's experience I know that I'm not in the clear until Baby Bless has made his appearance!

It suddenly occured to me that Baby Bless could be born on either Tony or my sports number. Is it sad, funny or cool that I thought of that? Lol.

I had to laugh about the sports number! When guessing the time for baby bless I based it on my sports number. Haha. It's coming up quickly...can't wait!

Yay for good news!

I just voted in your poll and noticed that nobody had yet picked {clearly} the best day to be born, May 5 - Cinco de Mayo! - so that is what I chose and is hopefully the day when Baby Bless makes his appearance :)

Kristal said...

Yay for a May baby! I voted May 10th...I'm gonna say that he's gonna be late. :)

Anita said...

Ha! You lucky lady (no stretch marks yet)... I swear I get them from just eating a big meal...

Lisa said...

You're getting so close!!! Eeek :).

Jen said...

My stretch marks didn't come until delivery either. :( Hopefully you will be lucky and get to skip them.

Meredith said...

I am ringless right now too (in the shop) and I agree-its weird! So excited to "meet" Baby Bless!

Yay for no stretch marks! I hope you skip them all together! Since they are hereditary, I am fairly certain I will get them. Thanks Mom....

Karen said...

I am so excited for you!!! Best wishes and a very healthy and easy delivery. I can't wait to see pictures of your beautiful baby

Just go and buy a big huge $20 fake ring from Target or Kohl's or something. I wear a fake for vacation and I know tons of people that did it for their pregnancies!

Rachel said...

i couldn't wear my ring for ten weeks
! ugh, it was awful. I finally got it back on when he was 4 weeks old!

and hopefully you won't get those stretch marks! I still couldn't believe I got them with one week to go!!! and now i must live with them :(

Hope you get a may baby!!!

Madeline said...

You are a sports nut :) I know what you mean about not having your wedding ring and feeling "naked" without it.
Crossing my fingers for a May baby!!

Kaitlyn said...

We are all getting so very excited for you!!

Jennifer said...

Wow! Your almost there!!

Abby said...

I have never commented before, but thought I would let you know that it is not sad at all that you think about the baby being born on your sports number. My son was born November 14 (11-14) which is both mine and my husbands sports numbers! Good luck, praying for a fast, safe delivery.

ezza said...
