38 Weeks Pregnant!

For prior posts click here! Well at 38 weeks we are making moves! Well my body is at least. This week I was dilated to 1.5 centimeters. 
 
This week baby's heartrate is 148 bpm and my belly is still at 36 cm. The doctor says I am right on track but I have to say, I am officially ready for the little miss to be here. As I have stated before, her movements are way more violent. It actually hurts at times when she is moving. Clearly she is getting bigger and by belly is no longer accomodating her comfortably. The bigger she gets the harder it is to sleep. When I am awake I am good to go, I can work, clean (do all the things Chris tries to keep me from doing) but when I go to bed, by back begins to hurt. Thank goodness I'm married to a man who massages so well that he could take a massage parlor out of business. Another thing I have realized is that I could never be overweight! I have no idea how heavy people do it. The extra weight is just a bit much to me. Getting up and bending down should not be so hard! Well, naturally carrying the extra weight makes it hard but thank goodness it's only the pregnancy in my case. The extra weight can really be exhausting sometimes just to walk up and down the stairs.

This week our additional fabric from Hypernoodle.com came in also!

We love it! It's so bright and cheery. What we have decided is that the fabric.com fabric will be for the bumper in the crib and the hypernoodle fabric will be for the skirt and the cornice box. Now just for making them...
