37 weeks

I went to the doctors this morning and I won't lie...I was hoping they would say this baby was ready to come out and send me to the hospital. Unfortunately, no such luck. We're still where we should be size wise and she is evidently in no rush.

We have learned during the past two visits that baby girl does not like to be bothered. Every time they try to hear her heartbeat, she won't stop moving enough for them to hear it very long. It takes about ten minutes for them to get an accurate reading. Today David and the doctor had a good laugh watching my stomach go up and down as she moved around. I'm hoping this means she likes to sleep and doesn't like to be bothered. Wishful thinking, right?

So, I won't lie. Now that she is considered full term, I am praying for her to come soon and not feeling any guilt about it. I really want her here with me now. I'm ready for her.

In other news not even related, the weather here the past few days has been wonderful. The highs have been in the 70's and it has been nice. I feel like I shouldn't be enjoying it so much since it has been overcast and gloomy, but I am. Hopefully, it means fall will be here soon!!!

Only 3 more weeks, hang in there! It doesn't help when the doctors tell you that the baby is on the way and will be there soon believe me. They told me they didn't see me going past 38 weeks with Matalie bc she was measuring so big and then I had to be induced bc she went past her due date. She will come when she is good and ready and you least expect it :)

You are in the home stretch now honey!!!! I will be stalking your blog to see if Olivia has made her grand entrance. If you want to help her along, take some long walks, eat spicy food and have sex. A lot of people say those work. Although, I tried all three more than I wanted too (haha) and Addie still came on her own time. Don't worry...she will be in your arms before you know it!!
