37 weeks + 1 day.
and i’m READY! i never thought i’d say that i was ready to not be pregnant, but in the last week, i’ve ‘popped’ and dropped all at the same time. i feel HUGE and there’s just so much pressure in my lower abdomen, where bean’s head has been pressing on my bladder for, oh, the last two months. this is a good thing, i’ll add, aside from the whole having the sudden urge to legitimately pee my pants 5 minutes after i’ve emptied my bladder. i guess i’m supposed to get used to it?
i am 2 1/2 weeks away from my due date and i’m starting to feel like that may be a little off and we might get to meet the bean sooner rather than later. my bags are obviously not packed yet but i just got some good advice from new mommas about what I should be packing for the hospital (favorite suggestion: a nanny.) there are so many things that i had no idea i needed (ahem, nipple cream, ahem, pads…) and still all of the things i listed last week: a rug and rocker for the nursery, bottles, a pump, etc. so, as i said, i think the list is literally never-ending.
so, i’m off to make the list…and i’m thinking week 38 may be the last photo you see of me without the bean.
