This Texas Baby: Week 40 Check-In

BABY'S TASK FOR THE WEEK: GET OUT OF ME! There are a lot of people who are very eager to meet you, so it's time to come out and greet the world.

SYMPTOMS: So stinking tired, I just want to sleep all the time. I think a lot of that has to do with getting up to pee every two hours during the night, I guess it's all just preparing me for when you are actually here. I think you fell more into my pelvis last week, I feel like my belly is lower and I feel the urge to hold it up a lot. I also think I have been having some contractions but I am not really sure what they are supposed to feel like so not sure if that is what I am feeling.

CURRENT MOOD: I have a doctors appointment in roughly 4 hours. I can not wait to figure out what my next steps are. I have a feeling it's going to be something along the line of waiting to see what happens for the next week. I have my fingers crossed that an internal exam will indicate SOMETHING is happening. I really would like to avoid inducing, but if you have not shown up in the next week I might be begging for it.

THIS WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY FINISHED HOMEWORK: There is nothing left to do, baby! We were expecting you to be here by now, so we have everything done. I say we have everything done, but I am sure there is always something we forgot or something else we could be doing.
NEXT WEEK'S GETTING READY FOR BABY HOMEWORK: Hopefully there is not going to be much getting ready for baby this week and a whole lot of holding baby!

And here is an iPhone Hipstamatic photo I took this morning:
