hey ladies- ALMOST THERE!
sounds like we're gonna have several babies this week? I think?
I had my last day of work yesterday (lots of people told me I was CRAZY for working until 39w1d, but I was fine, I knew I'd be fine... might even go in next week for a few hours if I'm bored and not feeling labor-y).
Strangers (and even a few people I know) keep asking me if it's twins... um, no, I'm measuring 39cm at 39w - that's totally normal everyone! I guess it's because people don't usually see 39w pregnant ladies running around getting groceries, briskly walking, etc? When I thought about it a little bit more, I realized that almost everyone I know has been induced or sectioned before they got to this point, and most of them were waddling/not able to walk very well after about 30-34 weeks?
So yeah, 39w, still not waddling... the hardest parts of my day are getting out of bed, getting off the couch, etc., I'm still moving quite quickly and well... until I sit/lie down. I'm having TONS of heartburn/acid reflux which actually seems pretty unrelated to diet (used to be only if I ate processed starch/sugar, now it doesn't matter what I eat!), and I'm feeling a few crampy sensations, but not a single contraction (BH or otherwise) felt, and I just don't feel like labor is happening for at least a few days, maybe a week, maybe two. we'll see!
Good luck to all the ladies who are having early labor signs/feelings - I think we all can't wait to meet these little creatures! :)
