11 days until my due date...

Nope, no baby yet!

I moved my doctor's appointment to tomorrow so I don't even have any updates! I moved it so I didn't have to jet out of work early today. I've been home for ice/snow/delivery people for three days and just needed a full day at the office! I'm beginning to wrap things up at work and I'm really excited about that. After working for a little over 4 years at Miami, it'll be really weird to say goodbye for awhile and not be back until summer. It's a very odd feeling, but I'm ready for it.

I'm feeling pretty good. Like oddly good. I've been sleeping well, I'm relatively comfortable, swelling isn't bad (maybe due to not going in to work for awhile), and I've been having a bit more energy when I want it. I mean, I have been taking it easy at home and not doing much, but yeah, I'm feeling good!

I do have a lot of pressure very low, and I've gotten what have felt like pretty bad menstrual cramps which may or may not be actual contractions. They haven't been regular enough to really keep track of, so I don't think it was anything. People assure me that I will just know when it's a real contraction.

Lila is still moving a lot, as always. I'm trying to be extra aware of her in these last few days just to make sure she is okay. She's very good at reassuring me!

I'm starting to feel a little impatient, but not really enough to try to do any natural induction things other than walking and bouncing and moving on my exercise ball. No castor oil for this girl! I just hope that I've made some progress tomorrow at my appointment and that she shows some signs of coming out in the next week. I really would love it if she came before the 14th! I want my Valentine's day gift early!


  1. I can't believe how close you are, and it's amazing that you're still sleeping well. Everyone I know has warned me that the end is the worst, but it sounds like you're doing so well! You're much more patient than I am about no natural inductions. I was teasing Derek the other day about how as soon as I get to term that I'm going to start going for runs to try and knock her out. He was dying laughing. :)

    Keep us posted! I'm so excited for you guys! I can't wait to see Lila and finally meet her! :)

  2. You are so close now! Good luck! BTW... your 37wk picture is too cute! You look great!
