38 Weeks

I celebrated 38 weeks on Thursday with being released from the hospital!  My suppose to be 24 hour stay ended up being a ridiculous, uncalled for, 3 night stay.  I’d rather not re-hash all stupidness of it so we’ll just say I’m glad to be home!  My back is in pain (due to the hospital bed) and my legs look like 2 tree trunks (sooo uncomfortable).  The fluid they had going through my IV for 3 days made my legs swell up so bad…I’m trying desperately to get the swelling to go down but being 38 weeks pregnant doesn’t help, lol.

There’s something about being in a hospital for a few days that makes you feel like you’ve been gone for a month.  I lost a little bit of my baby excitement for a few days after getting back for a couple reasons: 1.  I don’t want to go back to the hospital.  2.  I have to start from square one again (re-packing my hospital bag) 3.  My house is now a mess.  I also was just so tired from getting no sleep there, that I just didn’t want baby to arrive in the state I was in.  I woke up this morning with my excitement back 🙂  I re-packed my bag (this time know what I need and don’t need for a hospital stay) and made brownies today!  Yum!

So, back to my baby update!  38 weeks means only 2-4 weeks left!  Jon’s guessing this Thursday at 3 in the afternoon I will go into labor, lol (that will make me 39 weeks exactly).  There’s really not a whole lot going on with baby.  The last few weeks of pregnancy the baby is mostly just putting on a little chub and getting ready to enter the world!  He/She would be approx. 6.8-7 lbs (although if you want to go according to our ultrasound this past week our baby is just over 9lbs already…yeah right) and is about 17-20 inches long.

Here are my 38 week pics…taken a bit late since I’ve been exhausted after getting home late Thursday afternoon.  I look so swollen in them…

    I agree with poppy, there really is no room left to grow. Aunt Joy wants you to have the baby on her 50th birthday, which is the 19th.
