I'm still here!
My edd is 9/23, so I am 39 weeks today.
Overall I feel really good! I have a little sacroiliac joint pain when I sit down for too long, and then I walk like a grandma for a minute while it loosens up. And some nights sleep is iffy- I just wake up after one of my many many bathroom trips, and can't get back to sleep. But my blood pressure's excellent, I have no other aches & pains, and I just feel generally lucky that everything is good.
We are having a UC and I find myself getting really upset reading all the posts from mamas who are under the gun and running out of choices, according to their HCPs. I'm so sorry. And mad.
You know how people say that you don't gain weight the last few weeks?
That's not the case for me! I remember at 33 weeks, somebody in the store guessed I was about 5 months along. I was hiding this baby well until about 2 weeks ago, I think (I'm tall, so lots of room up & down vs out!) But suddenly I put on like 4 pounds in 2 weeks and my belly has gotten
B-I-G! I feel like I look giant, all of a sudden! I definitely think this baby will be at least my son's size (he was 9#4oz) That is fine with me, I had no trouble birthing him.
I want to meet this baby so badly! But I'm not really doing anything to try and induce; I expect it will come right around 40 wks, just like the other two. DH and I did have sex last night but that's just because he's hot, not because I'm trying to get the baby out yet.
