Pregnancy Update- 40 weeks!

 40 Weeks

Today is my due date. Never in my my pregnancies have I reached 40 weeks.  Since all my previous deliveries were by c-section, all my babies arrived between 38 and 39 weeks. Very different this time waiting around for labor.  Everyone in our house is on edge.  I keep thinking labor may be starting only to have things stop.  I know this is very normal though.  I am trying to be patient.  This little guy knows when it's time!  In the meantime my bags are packed, we are trying to keep our house clean, I made several freezer meals and we wait. :-)

Final pregnancy stats:

Weight gain: 17 pounds
Belly Measurement: 47 inches!!
Position of Baby: Head down and 0 station (he is ready)

How I am I feeling? 
Today I feel good, yesterday I felt awful.  Each day is different. I have been having a lot of cramps and back pain, but not a lot of contractions. Mostly, I am just anxious to meet my baby, to know everything with this VBA4C is going to go fine, and to get back into normal life again.  I haven't been able to drive for almost a month now (belly is to big) and things seem to be on hold for the time being.  I am grateful for the opportunity to VBAC this time around, thankful to have the wonderful support team I have and ever more grateful my baby is healthy and everything with this pregnancy was gone by without any major issues.  I am blessed!

Pin It!
