BABY!!! - Jan 8 --- 41 Weeks 2 Days Pregnant **Dec 31 - Jan 2 - Jan 4 -- Update **
10am - Contractions 10-15 minutes apart for the last few hours. Blood show. Only happens when I'm in labor. Amping up for baby. Maybe today or tomorrow.
Baby Joy was born today at 5:17pm.
21 1/2 inches
If you want to read the birth story, or see pictures, here's my blog post.
We're both doing great. Although my lower half is NOT happy right now. No tears though.
Baby staying put it seems. She/He seems to really like it's home. LOL!
Waiting... Waiting... Waiting...
Can't wait to see when baby decides to come join the family.
(Here's a picture of me at 41 weeks)
I feel like I grew a lot the last week. LOL

Still pregnant. Looks like I'll be having a 2013 baby.
This one is going to beat out my longest. Today is tied with my longest pregnancy at 41+4. I think it would be too fun to share my birthday on Thursday (42 weeks exactly).

One day away from 42 weeks. Tomorrow is my birthday.
Lots of cervical pressure and contractions yesterday. Then it stopped in the middle of the night. Now, I'm on my birth ball trying to get things going again. Hard BH, but no pressure.
Baby is really enjoying kicking me.
Still a huge preggo. LOL! Went out most if the day shopping. I was needing to walk. Still having contractions off and on. No baby yet.
Today's picture post 370 (page 37). I've dropped a bit.
No baby, however I wanted to share this bit of information in the fallacy of following the EDD.
"In natural birth circles it’s common to hear reminders that due dates can be “off” by two or even three weeks. In conventional maternity care, though, it’s all too common for the due date to be treated more like a final date for evacuation.
Many women are induced or schedule c-sections for the 38th, 39th, or 40th week, when the baby may well have a fair amount more developing and growing to do. Many babies are born on their own during these last few weeks of pregnancy, and are just fine because they were born when their individual development was finished and they were ready to begin life “on the outside.” Many other babies aren’t ready yet, though, and need the extra couple of weeks. It takes shorter as well as longer pregnancies to make up the “average” that Naegele’s rule calculates."
