It's funny to me that even though I'm measuring right on, I'll see other women who are carrying so differently. Our skin is pretty amazing. And how does gravity not just pull me right over?!
I wasn't sure I really wanted to post an almost going into labor picture, but I didn't take very many of myself when I was pregnant with Madeline and I guess baby boy weed might be nicer to me if he saw how big I was :) Yesterday, a woman stopped me all excited, asking when my due date was, what I was having, etc. She also asked if I was having twins. (this isn't a new comment) and then topped it off by mentioning that she had been pregnant with twins and "didn't get even close to that big" It didn't come across as mean. She was cute and excited for me. I just laughed and said, this is how I carry - right out in front! Still, I would never ask someone if they're having twins...or really make any comments about their size AT ALL.
I had a doctor's appointment yesterday. Not much has changed - 4 cm dilated and 80% effaced. Doesn't that sound like a walking time bomb? I'm feeling much more relaxed than last week. Everything on my list is pretty much done except for the name, but I'm not feeling worried about that. I only worry about not getting to the hospital on time if my water breaks since I'm already so far along, but I guess we'll figure it out if it happens!
My doctor said making it to 36 weeks greatly increased the chances of baby coming home with us after he is born, so I'm feeling good about being this far and am hoping for a few more days (but not too many) :)
