2nd pregnancy...

Written in April...just now posting.
Why is it that you track every single movement, moment, kick, pound gained, change from regular fit to maternity clothing, etc with the first pregnancy and the second go round, I haven’t tracked anything.  Yes, I realize I’m chasing around a 22 month old, but still, it’s all new again.  So, for the first time this pregnancy…an update.

How far along: 26 weeks
Total weight gain: not really sure, I think 19 
Maternity clothes: no choice
Sleep: it’s here and there, just trying to get comfortable
Best moment this week: Josie kissing the baby (my belly)
Movement: She moves all the time, day, night….I love it! 
Gender: another girl!
Labor Signs: none, thankfully
Dilated: nope
Belly Button in or out: in, barely
Direction of baby: transverse at the moment
What I miss: a cold cut sandwich
What I’m looking forward to: our next Dr. appt.

As of today...I'm 37 weeks 2 days which means less than three weeks until DD.  I've been 1/2cm dilated for 2 weeks now and have another dr. appt on Friday.  I'm hoping to be more dilated as I think this baby will arrive a week before my due date, just a gut feeling.  I had about an hour of contractions Monday morning, but that's the only sign that I can tell this little one is nearing her arrival.

We're as ready as we're going to be.  Nursery is mostly done, clothes hung and in drawers, diapers in baskets, stocked up on wipes, hospital bag packed and bassinet ready.  Let's get this party started!
