My Bellies Going to get Big

39 weeks

9 more days until the expected day where I should be holding my baby daughter :)

My last day of work was on Friday. It's going to be weird when I wake up Monday morning and have no where to go. I predict it won't take me too long at all to become stir crazy if baby decides to take her sweet time getting here.

Last week at my doctors visit I was 1 centimeters dilated. It doesn't mean anything though apparently. My doctor said he could see me in labour as early as that very evening or in three week when he induces me. I finally got up the nerve to ask my doctor how big he thought my baby girl was going to weigh when she is born. He predicted that she's already 9 pounds!! GET OUT BABY!! I can't say I was surprised though I've had a feeling for a very long time that she was going to be a BIG chub-a-lub :) I was doing some research an found out that baby is all developed now and can come out at anytime. That all she's doing in there right now if fattening up, as much as a 1/2 pound a week. So I figure she should come out NOW, she can just as easily get all nice and rolly polly out here in the outside world.

Last Friday Adam's co-workers threw him a surprise Baby Shower. Adam's co-workers were telling me how excited Adam is about the new baby coming and how he talks about her all the time. It was strange meeting these people for the very first time and them knowing too much about me. They knew that I was a centimeter dilated, that I couldn't hoist myself out of bed that very morning without Adam's help, that I was so upset the day before because I found another stretch mark and so on and so on.

So that's about all for now. I'll try and keep you all posted more frequently now, especially if anything exciting happens.
