36/37 Weeks

Here we are almost 37 weeks...a little late on the monthly picture. But we have made it to 9 months...only 4 weeks until my due date. However, I have a c-section scheduled for 39 weeks. I will take one more picture wearing this blue shirt right before going to the hospital. Unless of course I go into labor before my c-section date then I may not get a last belly shot in the blue shirt.

I haven't posted too much about really wanting a vbac (vaginal birth after cesarean) or the plan that has been set by my doctors. I may post that this week. The c-section being scheduled at 39 weeks isn't the ideal situation, but it is the way my doctors office works. I am given an opportunity to have a vbac if I go into labor on my own before 39 weeks. Other wise I will have a repeat c-section.

I am still feeling pretty good even at 36 weeks. Over the last week or so I must have really started looking big. I am getting comments almost every time I am out. It really is shocking to me how often people say things. And it almost seems like I am getting more comments from men then women. Things like "you must be miserable", "are there 2 babies in there?", "you look like you are due any day." I suppose these are all fine things to say to a 9 month pregnant girl. But the truth is I really haven't been miserable yet(yes, my almost all day heart burn might make things a little tough). I am actually enjoying being pregnant and trying to enjoy every moment I have left. Jake was born a few days after 37 weeks so I know that this can be over any day now. I want to remember every moment of our sweet Lily when she was in my belly.

I am doing much better this pregnancy then I did with Jake. At this point my blood pressure was up and I had been put on moderate bed rest. The 2nd time around seems a little easier.

I may get one more post up before she is born, but we will see how it all plays out. But if not my c-section is scheduled for Jan. 23rd. And I am sure I will have an update posted later that week
