38 weeks and waiting for November.
We've hit the 38 week mark. Each week I am more and more amazed I've made it this far. And more and more in disbelief that she'll be here any time. This morning I took a trip into the hospital to have a non-stress test completed. I just hadn't been feeling her move like I normally do. The Doctor said it was best just to check and make sure she was fine. They hooked me up to the monitors and saw that she is doing fine in there: good heart rate, movements and apparently consistent contractions. I've been having lots of Braxton-Hick contractions for that last few months, but these were real contractions with a pattern. Every 3-5 minutes for over 1 minute. I couldn't feel most of them which was what made that such a surprise. On top of the fact that I really, really, really want her to wait just two more days to come in November.
Now I have some stuff to do around the house, but really don't want to push her into coming today or tomorrow. We'll see what the next couple days brings us. Fingers crossed it's not a Halloween baby!!!
