39 weeks

Today I am 39 weeks. Since the last time I posted my belly has exploded. It now looks like a torpedo.

And it now looks much bigger than I ever was with Greta. What does this mean? This baby better come out soon or else it is going to be 10 lbs (or maybe it already is, ack)!

We are waiting for baby (not very patiently I might add). My sister is here now and we are hoping the baby arrives while she is here since Greta seems to LOVE her and Catherine is more comfortable taking care of Greta than my dad (who comes on Saturday) would be. I have had off and on random contractions, but nothing regular at all. Last week at my appointment I was 3 cm dilated and 50% effaced, but that doesn’t really mean anything. The midwife said you can have the baby today or in three weeks. I said I hope not in three weeks. I’m not sure how much bigger my belly can get without ripping open.

    It could mean a big baby–I’ve gotten bigger with each pregnancy–I can only imagine how big I’ll get with this one! We’re eagerly awaiting your big news and hope you have a safe delivery and baby!
