38 Weeks

Here is my 38-week picture!  I'm not sure it looks all that different from last week's, but I'm certainly starting to feel differently.  My contractions are getting stronger (Braxton-Hicks contractions; I had them with both pregnancies beginning at about the 20-week point), and I feel a lot more pressure perhaps not much longer!  Also, here is my 38-week picture with Sydney.  It was the last belly picture I took with her, because she was born at 39 weeks.

38 Weeks

38 Weeks with Syd

Update on last Thursday's appointment: It was semi-uneventful, but certainly not as uneventful or disappointing as the appointment the week before.  I saw the same doctor, and perhaps it was a better visit because I knew what to expect from her.  She did not do an internal exam to see if I was dilated or effaced, but my belly measured smaller this week than last week, and that combined with her feeling my belly from the outside proved that the baby is extremely low.  She thinks I'll deliver around 39 weeks, but I'm really trying not to get my hopes up.  I'm well aware of the possibility that Lorelei's October 22nd due date will come and go with her still as snug as a bug in my belly!  (My next appointment is this coming Thursday.)
