Pregnancy Update

I went to the Dr. this last Monday. It was a normal check up, my blood pressure is good and I gained 2lbs that is only 4lbs! Wahoo I am doing good! The Dr. checked my cervix and I was dilated to a 1.5 the baby is head down and pretty low. She said I am right on track and everything looks great. I am 37 weeks and considered full term so I can go any time!

Yesterday at home I lost my mucus plug! I am so excited. It was really nasty but exciting! I know that my body is naturally doing what it should to prepare for birth. I got all excited and let everyone know. I started having small contractions and feeling some pressure. I thought I might be going into Labor and got everyone around me worked up. (Sorry) Nathan came home and I was making him a little anxious. I was walking around the living room like a crazy person trying to get things moving along. Well it was making him nervous and he nicely asked me to I then realized I should just chill. If things were going to happen they would. I sent my Mom home to rest and took the opportunity to rest up the rest of the night. I slept great last night and didn't have any more contractions. The more I thought about going in to labor the less I wanted it to happen. We get it in our head that we want our babies out and to meet them, when we should remember that going into labor means ummm PAIN! There is no turning back once it starts.
I get so caught up in oh I might be having a contraction ohh I lost my mucus plug oh I feel pressure. When really I should be relaxing and enjoying these last few days of being baby and diaper free. I should really enjoy feeling him inside of me and helping him grow. This is the last time I will ever be pregnant or will ever feel the little flutters form hiccups. It all means so much and is such a privilege. A big huge part of me is so glad this is the last time I will be pregnant. A small part of me will honestly miss the opportunity to create life. I have a body that is so willing to bare and carry children; I tend to forget there are women who will never have the chance to experience these feelings and to create their own child. It breaks my heart for them. I wish I was able to give them each a child! That I could for a week trade with them. It is so sad that young girls and women who neglect children have the opportunity to have children. Life is so unfair but that is just how life works. There are reasons beyond or understanding for why these things work the way they do. I just hope that in every woman’s time of despair and need they turn to the Lord for love guidance and know that he has a bigger plan for them.

I will be sure to update this as things progress or if anything changes. The Hospital has WIFI so I will be posting pictures as soon as I have him and have settled! Check back often!!!
