37 Weeks

Okay, so I am really tired of looking at myself in the same outfit in front of the green wall too, BUT I just can't help posting the memories of my growing belly. Every week I ask myself how I am going to get any bigger, but somehow it happens. I just can't believe I am 37 weeks pregnant and Cori Belle will be here so soon!

Our good friends Donna and David just had their first little one, baby Isaac. Donna was a week late and had to be induced. She finally pushed out a 10 lb baby on Monday. Whew, 10 lbs seems like a lot! (Go Donna!!)

I went to the doctors for my 37 week check-up and there is no news yet of anything happening with delivery. Next week we will do an ultra sound to see how much she weighs (hopefully less than 10 lbs!!!) and to see what position she is in (hopefully ready to come out!!). After that, I will continue to go to the doctor weekly to see how much I have dilated and how Cori is progressing. She is still moving around A LOT in there. I can't imagine she has much room to move, but she sure finds a way! I have been having contractions pretty regularly, but I think they are just a good case of Braxton Hicks. My entire abdomen gets super tight and uncomfortable, but my doctor said that real contractions will be so bad I won't be able to talk or move during them. Oh, joy! I cannot wait! (insert sarcasm here!)

Please keep David, Cori, and myself in your prayers as this journey of pregnancy comes to a close. 10 months is a long time to be pregnant, but it does go by fast. We can't wait until she gets here!!

Until next time...

I can;t believe how big your belly is! I am hoping that she is healthy and wants to arrive a little early to meet us! Can't wait to be down there in a couple of weeks. Love to you, david, cori, and mav!
