38 weeks

Maybe I shouldn’t do this to myself, but I’ve been watching a lot of labor and delivery shows lately. I suppose I’m trying prep myself for what’s about to happen. I watch these women who decide to go au naturale… God bless you. I am not one of these women. Give me drugs. I have nothing to prove, I’ve been through this twice already. Why change now?
13 days (or less) to go. I’ve gained 60 lbs (good grief).
We are packed and ready to go. Diaper bag is ready and my bag is packed (now only if daddy would pack his stuff). I’ve been walking daily and using my yoga ball to help move this baby along. Sleep is a thing of the past. I pee every hour. Plus, my pelvic area is still in pain. Getting up from sitting or laying down… Its a task.
Nesting is difficult because I can’t move the way I want.

We are hoping this is the week she wants to come out. My doctors appointment is Wednesday and I better be dilated.
More updates soon, I hope.

*My favorite outfit. Bought it from thredup.com for less than $4



Dear Khloé,
When are you coming out? Mommy is exhausted and your kicks and stretches are beginning to hurt. I’m sure you are comfortable and warm in there, but I’m overly anxious for you to come out. Your sisters and grandparents will be here soon, and they’d like to see you soon. Plus, daddy heads back to teaching soon and he wants you out before he starts. Now, hurry up little one.
Love, your overly anxious mother

P.S. Sorry about all of the spicy food lately.
