I thought I'd better blog an update since I haven't written since Friday and some of you may be wondering... As you can see, the baby is still happily snuggled inside of my belly at 39 weeks. I don't think my belly can stretch any bigger (as you can see from the new set of stretch marks...)
The conference on Saturday was amazing. I've never heard so many great speakers in one day. It was an 8-hour day, but it went by really fast! I felt pretty good - I had a ton of Braxton Hicks contractions all day, but nothing else to report. We went out for spicy Thai food for supper and I was hoping that might get things moving, but so far... nothing.
Yesterday was a relaxing day that included the traditional supper meal with Erik's family. Rosanna and Elissa had me doing aerobics in the hopes to induce labour. I had some more contractions, but otherwise... nothing.
I did wake up at 4 this morning feeling a little weird. I had some really strong Braxton Hicks that actually woke me up during the night and some of them started wrapping around my back and feeling crampy, but nothing has transpired. It can't be much longer though! I'm expecting that by this time next week I will have a newborn in my arms - so here's hoping that the membrane stripping on Wednesday is a success if nothing happens before then!
I had to include this picture of me at 8 weeks - will I ever be that tiny again???
