Weeks 38 & 39...
At this point in my pregnancy...I AM TOTALLY DONE!! I just want you to come out so that I can finally meet you and stop being so dang uncomfortable, and your daddy agrees too! I sent him a text at work the other day asking him what he was doing and he said, "Just sitting around waiting for Emerson like I always do." We are so anxious to meet our son.
I have gained about 25 lbs so far, but my doctor thinks their scale might have been off when I went in yesterday. I'm having a little bit of swelling in my hands and feet, but nothing to substantial. I've been having some soreness in my pubic bone for quite some time, but last week I felt an excruciating pain shoot through my pubic bone and it hasn't felt the same since. I called the doctor and she said I have something knows as pubic symphysis, which is pretty much the separating of the pubic bone down the middle. She told me that I need to limit any activity that aggravates it, so I had to stop prenatal yoga before I wanted to. And since then I haven't been doing all that much. Yesterday I went to the doctor to have my weekly check-up and I am 70% effaced and 1 cm dilated. She was able to strip my membranes a tiny bit which caused some cramping and contractions last night but those stopped after I got in a warm bath. It was so encouraging though knowing that I'm not going into labor with absolutely no progress. I'm starting out a little bit ahead of the game.
Yesterday your nursery was featured on a website called Apartment Therapy, which I was so proud of!
I think that's about it for the last few weeks. We're just waiting for you. I hope that I'm holding you in my arms next week instead of writing a weekly blog!
