I had been saving the week 40 post from last week hoping to post week 40 with the baby but we all know she has not come yet and here we are today at week 41. I will apologize now and say I am sorry for all the “she is not here yet still” on the blog this week. I don’t mean to constantly talk about it but honestly it is all I think about. It consumes you. I try not to let it but you can’t help it. I know everyone says to relax and enjoy the time but you can’t. Sure you can go about your daily activities but that doesn’t mean that every hour of every day you aren’t wondering when this little baby is coming. Whoever thought you get to a point where you are wishing labor to happen to you. haha. It does makes me even more anxious though because you just think about it day and night. It is very hard to not be discouraged. I am trying. But it is hard.
I always get a little nervous to show actual skin pictures of my belly. I don’t know why? Why have we made it weird in our country to see a pregnant belly? I always question wearing a 2 piece when we go to the pool or beach too. Were you like that when you were pregnant? I think pregnant bellies are beautiful. Its just so crazy that you have a baby, a real baby in there. It still blows my mind when I think about it. I gained a total of 30 pounds. It was a little more but I have dropped back down again because she is taking so much energy to grow in there. I am pretty happy with that number. I really feel like I ate super healthy and stayed really active this whole time, so I feel like that was just the number my body needed to make this baby. I am starting to get really excited for post baby clothes again and for exercise! ohh to go running again!!
Lots of people have asked me about being induced. The truth is I do not want to be induced unless my midwife tells me its time. I know some people will get induced right away and that is totally their choice but for me I really want to try to have a natural birth (yes I know this can change and I am open to that but…) being induced can make that a little bit harder for myself. I have a midwife appointment in well 30 mins actually and will see what they say. I have to get another Non Stress Test done to make sure she is happy and healthy in there still. Hopefully I will have some news to share later this afternoon.
Dear Baby Girl:
We are waiting for you! Daddy keeps telling me that I have made such a good home for you in there and that is why you don’t want to come out yet. But we have made a really good home out here for you too- I wish I could show you ’cause maybe you would pop right out. Mommy has been waiting and waiting and waiting for you. It has been really hard. We want you to be here so badly. I have been having bad dreams lately that you come out and you are already a toddler and you don’t want to cuddle me. Oh course I will love you when you are a toddler but I want you to be a baby too. I know they are just silly dreams but I don’t like them. We miss you and we haven’t even met you yet. I know this is all for a reason and I am trying to understand that. We are just so eager to see you, and hold you and kiss you. We really can not wait to meet you! Please come soon!
With all our love,
Your Mommy + Daddy
haha that first picture of Kev’s head and my belly cracks me up. I am either having a baby or an adult head. They seem to be the same size.
