38 Weeks!

38 weeks!!

Holy Hannah! Less than two weeks to go now! 
However, I feel like she could come early since I feel she is going to fall out of me! Jason and I have been taking night walks and boy, do I feel the effect! Cramps all night and such heaviness in my pelvis! Hopefully that is a sign that she is to come any day now!!! 
Jason and I have now put the change table together. The room is still far from finished, but it is a start. lol 
On Friday my friend Taryn is putting on a baby shower for me! I am so excited to see everyone since Jason and I have been gone all summer. All are invited to come. Invitations were sent out via facebook last week through events, so if you didn't get the message it is this Friday, September 28th at 6:00 at the Copperwood LDS church on the westside of Lethbridge.
Jason and I also got to visit with Joe, Amy and Aunt Sandy this past Sunday for her birthday dinner! It was delicious. Aunt Sandy made  Cafe' Rio pulled pork salad... oh my gosh to die for!

I went for my 38 week appointment today and such great news! I am progressing really well and my doctor said that I have all the signs of this baby coming any day now! She said most first births come after the due date, but she doesn't think mine will be much past the due date if sooner. :) I am measuring at 38 weeks and baby is moving a ton. She set my induction date for a week after my due date, October 15th. My mom was thrilled, since her birthday is the 15th!

Symptoms for this past week:
-Cramping... tons and tons of it. Some I have to breathe through.
-Such heaviness in my pelvis that I feel I need to cross my legs or my baby may just fall out of me.

-Night walks are great and most often settle my restless, achy body, especially my legs...and I love walking, holding hands with Jason, in the cool Autumn air discussing our future and excitements! 
-still at an 18 pound weight gain
-I am more tired lately and have been taking naps pretty much everyday.
-I am feeling great except for the constant feeling of this baby falling out of me and my pelvis aching all the time.
-Ooo and I still enjoy back and foot rubs from my loving husband pretty much everyday. He is so good to me and is always trying to make me comfortable.


  1. Oh Brittany - it gets more exciting each day! I am glad you are listening to your body, and resting when you feel tired. Walking is good exercise especially holding hands with a handsome man you take home for back and foot rubs. Enjoy your baby shower - wish I lived closer to join you all. Can't wait to hear the news!
    Love, Auntie Sheelagh

  2. Congrats, I can't believe you only have two weeks left. Hey I would LOVE that recipe for Cafe Rio pulled pork if you can message it to me!! Please, it's one of our favorite places to go. Congrats again, you'll love being a mamma and it's coming real soon.

    1. For sure! Ill get you the recipe as soon as I get it from my aunt! I am super stoked to be a mom and to get this baby out!!
