|No, I am not smuggling a watermelon under there!|
So we made it to 40 weeks & lemme tell ya, I am so ready to have this baby!
I've been trying to walk and keep active while still trying to rest and save my energy...hoping that one of these days baby Camden will decide to come. On Saturday we tried going on a 3 mile walk to see what would happen. We walked to the movies, saw Water for Elephants and walked back. It was a fun date but nothing babywise happened at all. All that came from that trek was a sore back, feet and hips! I am under the impression that really nothing you try will help...baby is just going to want to come when he wants to come.
So yeah on top of the emotional waiting game that has been the last few weeks and my poor sore lil swollen body, my belly has been non stop crazy itchy and burning & trying to sleep with an actively kicking 6-7 lb baby inside you is not all that fun && all the rest that comes with being 9 months pregnant...it just isn't so glamorous.
This morning I was practically in tears and nervous for what my doctor would say at my appointment. To my surprise he pretty much said...you are dilated and full term, lets induce this baby! I was sure he was going to say...lets wait another week or so, So I was prepared to start the water works, but no need to put up a fight, he was all for getting this sweet baby here & on his due date too!
Inducing this child was not my first choice on how this would all go down but
I just know he is ready to come out he just needs a little nudge or two ;) I've actually had more contractions today than the usual so he could technically come before tomorrow, you just never know...
...but for sure tomorrow morning we are checking in at Hotel St. Jude, as my doc calls it, and getting this show on the road! Kind of surreal to know when this little guy will be on his way out! Scott and I are both a lil nervous and excited but mostly just really excited! Wish us luck!
Look how much we have grown...
|Haha...Funny that I thought my belly was "so huge" at 20 weeks!|
