37 Weeks

Yesterday finished my 37th week!  I am now considered full term!!  How exciting! Here is this week's picture. (Please excuse the band aid. I got my flu shot today at work.)

It's a bit crazy to think about but next Tuesday is my last day of work before my maternity leave!  I had a few weeks of vacation built up so I'm taking off before Adalyn comes.   Hopefully I'll have time to get a much needed massage (a birthday present from this summer!), my hair cut, and a pedicure before she makes an appearance.  Although I'm ok if she wants to come tomorrow! :)  I just can't wait to meet her.

According to What to Expect, Adalyn is still the size of a watermelon (and boy can I tell!) and should be between 19-22 inches and around 6.5 lbs.  If we hang in there until next week I will have another ultrasound and we'll be able to see how big she is!  She was a little peanut last ultrasound so I'm interested to see if she's still small! 

I'm on to weekly doctor appointments now.  Last Thursday I was measuring 1cm and 50% effaced!  I'm not getting my hopes up since you can walk around like that for weeks, but it means that something's happening so I'm excited:)  I haven't experienced any Braxton Hicks so it's good to know that my body is headed in the right direction:)

I just can't wait to meet my little girl!!!  You can come any day now, Little One!

I'm actually in Hazard, KY this week. I wish I could meet up with you but I am not driving and I think I'm still pretty far from you??? We are heading home tomorrow at lunch. But I will be back next year! :)
