37 week check up

So the last few days have been a little more uncomfortable. I've been starting to have a sore back on my right side in the middle. I also wake up every morning feeling like I've been beat up. I guess she's really active at night...I usually sleep through it but Logan has fun feeling it at night. In the morning is when I feel it. I wake up feeling sore and bruised. It's also a little uncomfortable when she starts moving her head around way down there! :) I make it sound like I've had it horrible but I really haven't. It really has not been bad at all... just a little uncomfortable now. We had our 37 week check up today and we're still dilating. Today we were 2 cm.... slow down! I wanted her to atleast make it to 38 weeks. Plus we still haven't discussed the whole name thing. I was hoping that we would just be inspired on what her name should be but I guess it's actually something we have to think about and discuss. So I hope she atleast makes it to 38 weeks and gives us a little more time to find her the perfect name. Who knows, we could just not make any progress the next couple of weeks and still carry her till past her due date. I guess we'll see!





Don't mind the stain on my shirt... I think all my shirts have stains! I don't know how but I get so dirty everyday. Like my grandma said... I could be clean, just go sit on the porch and I would get dirty. Atleast once we have her I can start using her as an excuse for my stains! j/k

Lookin' Good! On the one hand be grateful she's still in there--they're much easier to take care of in utero. On the other hand be grateful you're dilating already--going past your due date REALLY sucks!

Hang in there! You are almost there, to the rest of your life changing forever!!! You guys should write out the letters of your names, and see what names you can come up with that start with all the letters. Just an idea to get the juices flowing! Avery was Abby the first day she was born, until the birth certificate lady pushed us to hurry up and make a for sure decision! The name will come. Keep us posted.

Heidi I know how you feel at the end you just feel miserable! It is almost like the baby has outgrown the amount of space you can give it! But be happy that she may come early because I went over my due date and every second over your due date feels like an eternity!

If you're already dialated to a 2..more than likely you won't make it to your due date. I checked into the hospital at 2 1/2 cm and had Trent 6 hours later. Everyone is different so we'll see!! I also had back pain around 37 weeks, it only gets worse my dear til the baby comes out, hang in there. I can't wait to see pictures and find out what you guys name her.
