Hello-- still pregnant here... kicking it at 37 weeks. I feel a lot more patient with this kiddo than I was the first time around. I think because I am a little nervous for 2 and I don't feel like things around the house are ready (are they ever?!).
On the other hand I am totally excited and ready to meet this new little guy! I wonder about him all the time and can't wait to hold him in my arms!
I have been working to prep again mentally to try for another natural birth. I'm not sure if its been better or worse knowing the level of pain I am possibly in for. I'm just hoping labor starts on its own and there are no medical reasons to induce again this time. Pitocin and a drug free birth = OWW!
Life at 37 weeks:
Still running 3x a week. (Usually 4 miles each run but this week it was a little less due to weather and running without my running buddy which means I slack off more). A little more pressure and discomfort while running and after.
Trouble turning over at night. It's hard to hoist such a belly around after going, going, going all day!
Weight gain at 37 weeks -- about 21 lbs (Slightly less than I did at this point with my first guy, but I am running more distance than I was with him at this point...)
For comparison... here is my bump at 37 weeks with Boy 1...
