38 Weeks

 

Today marks 38 weeks! I am really in disbelief that we’re 2 weeks from the due date! I am feeling too good to be this pregnant! Of course, I am so thankful that I am 38 weeks pregnant and still feel wonderful! I’m still able to cuddle Paxton {I even rocked him to sleep one day this week!} I have no trouble putting him in his crib, bathing him or carrying him. And just this afternoon I painted my own toenails…pretty toenails are a must for delivery, right?

The only time I really ‘feel’ pregnant is right when I’m crawling into bed at night. Lately this is when Weston is ready to party, he goes crazy in my belly! I’ve found that putting my belly on John David’s back makes this a little less uncomfortable. My back does hurt a bit at night and rolling over takes quite a bit of effort. However, this is my only complaint, I think I can deal with 15 minutes of discomfort a day!

We had a checkup yesterday and I was about 50% effaced and only about a 1/2 centimeter dilated. I am completely okay with my lack of progress, I really am in no hurry for him to be born! It’s funny the difference in first and second babies, with Paxton we were incredibly impatient and with Weston we’re content with him waiting as long as he would like! {I suppose since we know parenting is much easier when baby is still inside mama!} We are thrilled about welcoming Weston but we know he’ll be here before we know it so there’s no need to wish these last few days away.

 

I couldn’t resist taking a picture of me in the same dress that we took our 38 week picture with Paxton. It’s basically the same angle. {There is a shadow on the one we took today.} I still think my belly is smaller now than it was with Paxton. And as of yesterday I weighed 10 pounds less than I did at 39 weeks with Paxton so I am about 8-10 pounds lighter this go round!

 

38 weeks with Paxton!

And here’s the handsome big brother! He did not want to have his picture taken with mama so we gave him a cracker to keep him somewhat happy!

    You look great! So glad you're feeling good too! We were in no hurry for Levi to get here either…except we were hoping he would come before the end of the year…he was 6 days late but still made it in 2010 🙂 Praying for you!
