36 Weeks

We're officially in the last month.... woohoo!!  I feel like the first few months of this pregnancy were so slow but lately it seems to be flying by.  It's hard to believe we only have 28 more days until my due date and I actually wouldn't mind if it was a little less.  I've started my weekly appointments with my doctor and when she checked me I was 1 cm dilated.  I was that way with Henry at this many weeks so who knows if that means he'll come soon or we still have some time.  I've also been having braxton hicks a lot and even some contractions in my back.  We did actually talk to my doctor about inducing again and we're going to see how I progress over the next couple of weeks but it looks like she may be willing to induce us the week of December 2nd so we'll see!

I'm definitely feeling the aches and pains lately and I find myself having trouble doing simple tasks like getting up off the floor, bending over, putting on shoes, etc.  I also find myself laying awake quite a bit at night or getting up at the crack of dawn even on the weekends.

We've been lucky the past two weekends to have help with Henry from both of our parents so we can have some time to get things ready.  We've also been able to get in some alone time for dinner and a movie which is always nice.

At this point most of the baby clothes are washed and everything is organized.  I need to make some lists and start figuring out what I'll take to the hospital for myself and the baby  These next few weekends are going to be busy since we're having Henry's 2nd birthday party next Saturday and I know we're going to be busy with Thanksgiving.  I'm trying to take it easy but it's hard with so much going on!

Again, we're so thankful for a healthy pregnancy so far and hoping for a safe labor and delivery.  I plan to be back again soon with more baby updates before December 8th!
