38 Week Belly Pic

I've come up with a list of positives to being induced ten days late if this baby doesn't come on her own. We're looking on the bright side here, right?

Why November 27th Could Be A Good Thing
1. I can go see New Moon!
2. I might actually get to finish crocheting this last blanket for the Bambina.
3. I'll get an extra ten days to wear Crocs wherever I want (including church) because "I'm pregnant."
4. More time to make lots of giant, obnoxious bows and spend all of Chris's money on adorable pink things! (That one's for you, Chris.)
5. I'll still be able to "eat for two" on Thanksgiving.
6. I won't have to worry about buying any newborn size outfits because she'll come out toddler-sized already.
7. I can get up the day after Thanksgiving and still have time to hit the Black Friday sales at Target before I head to the hospital!

Pregnancy Statistics

How far along? 38w1d
Gender: Girl
Current Cravings: Sausage McMuffin with egg and rootbeer (...but not at the same time.)
Weight gain: +32 lbs
Worst moment this week: Cleaning and organizing my office in preparation for being gone for 12 weeks. It feels like something died in me! I hate change.
Best moment this week: Staying home on Halloween (while Chris was at the U game), passing out candy and catching up on all my Thank You notes!
Funniest moment this week: Trying to get Chris to take my 38 week belly pic. (See below...)
Belly button in or out: Out.
Labor signs: Still 50% effaced and at a -2 station.
What I miss: I miss work already.
What I'm looking forward to: Only 6 more days of work! (How can I miss it and look forward to being done with it at the same time? No idea.)

Funniest Moment This Week
Last night I came home from work and asked Chris to take my picture, like we do every Wednesday. He snaps 3 really quickly so he can head back to the couch without missing too much of his show. I decide to check them out before I turn the camera off and put it away.

Not a single picture was in focus.

I ask him to come back in and take a few more because they were all out of focus, and he grumbles and grumbles. Then he snaps a few more.

Still all out of focus.

I tried to explain to Chris that he must be moving his hand while he's pressing the button, causing my face to be out of focus on all of the pictures. (Our camera even has image stabilization, for Pete's sake!)

Chris's response? "It's not my fault your face shakes while I take your picture."

{Me "shaking my face."}

I had logan at 42 weeks. He was smaller than "newborn" size and not underweight at all. If you are induced 10 days late, it doesn't necessarily mean she will be big :). I hope you can hit the Black Friday sales regardless, but I'm so anxious for you!! I can't believe how fast the time has gone by :). She's gonna be here before you know it!

Oh my goodness your posts totally crack me up! I'm dying!
So I'm predicting your water is going to break in Target on Black Friday.
#6 was the best. :)

Porter was a week late and he only lasted in his 0-3 months for like a week! Hang in there, being induced takes a lot of the stress away!

Seriously...Chris sounds so much like Seth! Shaky gosh....

That's hilarious! I hope you get to see "New Moon". Course, you might not care too much about seeing it anyway! I was so dead set about not being induced and our little guy coming late. I got mad when people mentioned it! I finally gave in five days before our due date, after the doc had stripped my membranes, bless her, and bought a "pregnancy pizza" from Cafe Trio. It worked! I had Jack the next day.

I was 10 days late with Marshall. It's miserable and it feels like forever but it is nice having one more Thanksgiving kid-free, and it's SO nice how "well-done" they come out. He had no jaundice and all his apgar scores were 9 or 10. I seriously thought he was going to come out ready for preschool though! It's tough but hang in there. You don't want to mess with your body's natural labor too much or you have horrendous births (trust me). Good luck!
