38 Weeks

 Yucky feeling momma= Bad quality picture.

My 38th week of pregnancy has been...interesting?

1. For the last few days I have been nauseous. Especially for the first hour or two after I get out of bed. I've gotten some shooting pain down the back of my left leg once in a while. Might as well throw in some new hip pain too.

2. Pregnancy brain is worse than ever. The other night, I almost put deodorant on as chapstick. That would have been BAD.

3. I've been trying different things to try to get baby girl here faster. Raspberry leaf herbal tea made me have some contractions but nothing else happened so then I started trying other options. We've been walking around the block more often because that seems to work the best.  I tried having Michael help me push on different pressure points on my feet, legs, hands, neck, and shoulders that are supposed to help induce labor and make contractions more intense. Michael wasn't into it, so we stopped. Then I turned to shaking it. Shaking it? Yes. I tried to dance my baby out of me. I was watching all these videos of pregnant girls dancing and it was hilarious.  This is one of my favorite videos...



So, of course I had to try it. I got contractions, but it stopped at that. It was amusing to try to dance with a big belly and not having done it in months. Out of practice and out of shape? Yeah...probably not going to post a video of me doing that ;-).

Look at your belly! Love it! I know it's hard to think that it could be today or 3ish weeks from now that you get to meet Ms. E but it WILL be your time before you know it...and then, time just flies by like crazy!

Oh I feel ya! Two fall babies, one of which made me so huge and miserable. Go get spicy food and then go for a nice walk...but tomorrow when it is cooler. Ohh and pack the chapstick for the hospital.

I've been getting a lot more leg and rib pain. Especially legs feeling very cramped at night. I'm still in no rush to get her out, but if she decided to come now I would be very excited. You've had some contractions would I would assume is a good sign that you'll be having your girlie sooner than me, because I've had nothing. Hopefully she comes sooner than later for you.

You make an adorable preggo! I was forced into dancing at my friends wedding exactly 1 week before Broderick was born. I felt so dumb being that big and trying to move like I did before pregnancy lol. I have lots of respect for that dancin mama in the video though, she certainly can shake it with the best of them!

Oh Man! I am 22 weeks right now and Pregnancy Brain is making me forget everything. I cracked up when I read about the deodorant as chapstick line. Hysterical - and probably in my future.
