37 Weeks and Still Growing…

Well folks, we’ve reached the 37 week mark and with all the recent pain in my legs from her compressing my sciatic nerve, I’m VERY ready for her to come out.  And technically, I’m full term, so we’re good to go at any point from here on out (even though my official due date is October 21st).  Doesn’t look like it’ll be anytime soon though because at my appointment today I was 0 centimeters dilated.  However, I’m staying optimistic and per my doctor’s recommendation, am going to start taking daily Red Raspberry Tea and Evening Primrose Oil supplements in the hopes of naturally inducing labor.  Time to get this show on the road… Mama is impatient!

    You look fabulous! Sorry about the sciatica pain! Hope baby cooperates and does come a few days early though when she comes you will be sleep deprived and exhausted… but immeasurably happy!
