38 Weeks Update


I am 38 weeks pregnant as of yesterday. I saw my OB today and I am 2 1/2 cm dilated and 70% effaced. Abby's head is down and very low, she's in a great position! So she could come anytime, which means that I really need to get moving so I'm ready!

We dropped off a bag for Sandy at Jaydene's house today, so at least she'll have everything she needs while I'm in the hospital. That is a huge relief! I also bought the few things we wanted to get for Abby: a baby bjorn carrier, a double stroller, and a bassinet that will fit in our bedroom. Sandy has been having lots of fun with the new baby items. She keeps rolling the bassinet into her room and filling it with baby dolls.

Now I just need to clean my house, catch up on laundry, pack hospital bags, and tie up a few loose ends for Primary. I need a big dose of of motivation to get it all done, though. My sister had her baby last week -- she was due May 4, 2 days after me, but she was induced because her blood pressure was high. She has a healthy, 7-pound baby boy and she's doing well. I thought her having her baby would really get me motivated for Abby to come, but really all I feel like doing is sitting on the couch and reading a book and eating ice cream. I don't remember having so little energy at the end of my pregnancy with Sandy, but I guess I wasn't chasing a toddler around then.

Good luck!! I wish you all the best! May Abby's arrival be a good one, whenever it happens to come. BTW, which double stroller and baby bjorn carrier did you choose?

You always amaze me at how organized you are! Dropping off Sandy's bag and everything! I never would have thought of that. We just had a bag for Christian packed and stuffed in his closet. I hope you really enjoy your birth this time as well as the baby! Best wishes!

Thanks, Michelle & Heather! Michelle, I got my stuff used at Kid-to-Kid: the stroller is a double sit and stand and I'm not sure what model the baby bjorn is.

I love my sit and stand stroller! We use it as a three person stroller sometimes (probably not recommended but it works). Anything else you need? Let me know if I can help with anything.

Love the name! And to answer your question...I am doing preschool on my own. Not willing to pay $120.00 a month and Alex loves it for now!
