37 Weeks = Full Term!

If Uno were a roasting turkey, his "doneness" button would have popped up yesterday. We reached 37 weeks, and he is officially full term and good to go. I am feeling huge, uncomfortable and tired, so I am looking forward to getting him out when that time comes.

I saw the OB this morning, and there is no change in my cervix from last week. I was hoping for a little more progress, but status quo is probably a good thing if it means I am more likely to get through the week without going into labor, so I can finish up at work.

Tonight HK and I plan to pack the hospital bag. Yesterday, a friend from church came over and took some maternity pictures for us, to document my largeness. : ) That was fun, and I can't wait to see the pictures.

Huge. Uncomfortable. Tired. Sigh... me too. Sounds like neither of us are done incubating. It is a fight every day to make it into work, but the time we've got at the back end of leave will be worth it! Have you decided if you'll continue working or not? IIRC, you had not yet decided at our last lunch.

I bet your maternity pics are beautiful! I hope you decide to share.

YAY for full term ... what a huge, huge milestone! That's just awesome. I'm still inspired by your story and CAN'T WAIT to meet Uno!! (especially now that he's fully cooked!)

I too can't wait to see the beautiful pics! I love maternity pics ... they are a testament to God's miracles!!

I'm so excited you are officially full term. Time for Uno to come on out anytime, huh? (:

I hope you post your maternity pics too. (:
