40 Weeks... Past Due Date!
Honestly, never thought I would go to 40 full weeks....
Size of baby: Thinking 7.5 to 8lbs.... but not 100% sure. Will know more after my ultrasound on Thursday, if I go that long....
Symptoms: I have had contractions consistently since last Tuesday... but they are irregular and not painful. They are not "progressing" me like REAL contractions should. I am dilated to almost a 2 and 50% effaced... baby boy is head down and engaged. We are getting closer!
Cravings: Sweets... which isn't the best at the end of pregnancy ;)
Something you Miss: Honestly - I miss not knowing what heart/throat burn is. Ha! That has been the worst these last few weeks... so odd.
Milestones: I lost my mucous plug last Tuesday & actually went to the hospital with consistent/regular contractions 2-3 minutes apart that evening but they weren't the real deal. They weren't making progress.... so home I went... and it is 1 week later. Jude didn't want to come out yet, I guess :)
Looking Forward To: Last date for his birthday will be April 3rd. They will induce me on that date as it is best for baby Jude! I will know more after my appointment on Thursday - they are doing an ultrasound to check his size and to make sure all is still functioning properly. The end is near and I will for SURE have a baby by April 3rd! :) PRAISE GOD!
Prayer for our baby this week:
Dear Lord, I am so thankful that the end is near. I know we will have Jude in our arms soon and that gives me peace. I would love to go into labor naturally Lord so if that is your will... I thank you in advance. Please help me in these final days to keep my eyes fixed on you. To remember that YOU are my strength when I feel so weak. Thank you that you have a plan for Jude's life starting with this whole pregnancy process. Please keep him safe, growing and whole in my womb until he enters the world. WE love you Lord!!
