Well I'm 37 weeks pregnant and totally feeling it. I haven't had the energy to do much of anything. I should own stock in the company that makes Tums because I eat those like candy. I'm anemic so I also eat ice like I've been in the desert for months. My low back is hurting. I have leg cramps at night so I have to roll over A LOT. I'm sure anyone that has ever been pregnant understands that rolling over in bed when you're 37 weeks pregnant is an event. First I have to get from my side to my back. Next, I take a breather and work on getting to the other side. As if that wasn't enough, I have to get up to pee about 5 times every night. It's all totally worth it. I can't wait to see baby Ava. I had an ultrasound the earlier this week to check her size. She's actually measuring at 38 weeks. I'm 2 centimeters dialated and the doc said her head is really low. I get cramps but I'm not sure if those are contractions. With Abby I was induced and all of my labor was in my back, so I'm not sure what a contraction feels like in the front. I'm sure I'll find out soon enough. I'm definitely nervous. Even with all of these complaints, I feel blessed. There are so many women who would desperately love to be in my place. I work with someone who is going through IVF, and I really feel bad for her. It has failed twice and she's still trying. So I try hard not to be a complainer for that reason.
I'm not sure why, but no one entered my giveaway for the trial premium membership to the Jumpstart website. Please check out my last post for more info. I was thinking about extending it a week, but decided to give it to the next person to comment that they want it.
