Week 38

Week 38 was "ok" considering the fact that I'm on the home stretch and I've grown increasingly anxious with the sole thought of labor...
I'm 39 weeks, being induced tonight and I can't help but be excited, nervous, confused and many things at the same time....
The week went by fairly fast with no major complaints/events other than full blown heartburn, crazy contractions, sore boobs, swollen feet, increased fatigued and a quick trip to the hospital! ha ha!
I've gained a total of 23 lbs during this pregnancy, which isn't too bad (I guess!)...but I'm really looking forward to losing all the weight and getting back into my regular clothes...needless to say I feel like a huge whale although the weight gain was not excessive.
My induction will start tonight at 8pm with Cervidil and then I will be given Pitocin. God willing, we will have a baby by tomorrow afternoon if not earlier... fingers crossed! ;)
Hopefully my next post will be about Gaby's birth story and some more exciting news....

It’ll be four years soon since you posted this, and I can see in your other blog that your daughters are doing fine! And I’d like to tell you that you had a great birth story. I’m happy everything went smoothly for you and your baby. Giving birth is just the start of the real challenge – you’ll now have to nurture and cherish a whole new life. I wish to see more of your updates!
