Since I'm still pregnant

I'll share my 38 week pics. I had all high hopes that these would be my last ever ever EVER pregnant pictures but alas a 24+hour false alarm is proving otherwise but I'm saving that story for its very own post.

Here I am 38 weeks, barefoot AND pregnant. Sexxay.

I delivered F at exactly 38 weeks, so I'm kinda disappointed to be counting up from here but I've still been having hard, real contractions so I'm hoping they will become productive at some point between now and 40.

Onto the details of where I stand.

Watermelon pretty much sums up how I feel.

Your Baby: Month 9

At week 37, your pregnancy is considered full term, meaning baby is likely to thrive after birth. Baby spends these last weeks in preparation for the outside world… meaning careful refinement of the blink, suck, inhale and exhale. Meconium, which you’ll probably find in the first diaper, is accumulating in the intestines. If (okay, as) you worry about giving birth, consider what it’s like for the little one. During the journey out of your womb, baby will produce more stress hormones than any other time in life.

I highlighted my favorite line from the paragraph. I'm kinda thinking that the journey from beginning of labor through delivery for the mama is in tight contention with regard to this. Of course, if Baby Deuce is a boy. It's moot anyway.
