full term!

So I gained a few (4 to be exact...) pounds in the past 2 weeks.  My blood pressure remains nice and low.  Belly measuring as it should.  JJ's heartbeat was 132bpm.  Absolutely nothing is happening on the 'dilation' front, but that's pretty much what I expected.  I don't feel like anything is going on. 

Being considered 'full term' is exciting...except when she mentioned full term is anywhere from 38-42 weeks.  Um, excuse me??  42??  Yowza.  I don't mind waiting the full 40 weeks, but I will do anything and everything I can to make sure this baby comes before 42 weeks!!!

Things are starting to hurt that weren't before.  Getting out of bed in the middle of the night is hard!  My feet, ankles and lower legs are quite the sight...I can't believe how swollen they are!  Long work days are starting to get to me.  And I'm having more cravings than ever before.  All someone has to do is mention a food, and I want it: Toaster Strudel, Lucky Charms, Cadbury Eggs, popcorn...I blame Jamie for most of them!

So are we ready?  Pretty close.  I don't feel like I'll ever really be ready...and it's still hard to believe we're so close.  One of these blog posts sometime will be my last before the baby comes.  Maybe even this one!  Who knows.  Soon I'll be posting a picture of our son.  I can't wait!!

OMG, Lynn, I ate a dozen toaster strudels in 2 days the week before I delivered Annaleigh!
