38 weeks -spaghetti squash

This week's appt I gained 2 lbs from last week! Lol

Still at 3 cm dilated and 60% effaced so no progress really. Which is kinda disappointing but I haven't felt any Braxton hicks all week or pressure si I guess I can't complain. 

Caiden's birthday was on sunday so I think I was holding back. But clearly she is comfy in there.

I have been so hormonal, going from laughing to sobbing in a minute. Which thankfully hasn't been the norm up until recently. I'm not sure the reason.

My next appt is Monday I'm hoping for more progress, but if not I just need to be patient because waiting on a girl apparently starts in the womb! Lol.

36 weeks - cantalope

This week snuck up on me.  I had my 36 week appt today, my Dr said I am 2.5cm and 50 % effaced.  Almost exactly where I was at this stage with connor. It will be interesting to see if she decides to come sooner or later like her big bro.

Everyone is getting more excited to meet this little one. Caiden initially wanted her to come on his birthday as a present. but has since changed his mind and said the 21st would be ok. Connor said he wasn't ready for a sister, but is excited to play with her, and he prays for her almost every night.  Dan can't believe he is going to be a father of 3 kids.

I am so blessed to have made it this far it has been a great pregnancy and I am as anxious as ever to finally meet the little girl I have shared so much with the past 9 months. I am nervous that im due for something to go wrong or need a csection or something but I pray that a it's going to be fine. That's all I can do.

I think total this pregnancy I have gain 28lbs which is good. I really thought I would have continued to workout more with this pregnancy but it was just not in the cards. Taking care of a house and 2 kiddos is more physical work that you expect when you wake up tired and fatigue. Lol So needless to say I am so eager to get back to the gym and go to zumba, piyo and spin again I miss it so much! It had become such a big part of my life in the last year before getting pregnant I found that I am able to reconnect with myself when I am there and get the nessesary "me time" I need to be a better mom. I know it is going to be hard to find the time to work it back into the schedule with 3 kids in tow but I am optimistic because I know I need it.
