Tomorrow I'll be 38 weeks pregnant and, according to BabyCenter, little Blueberry has been "full term" since last week. I'm now in the weeks where I could go into labor "anytime" [in the next 4 weeks].
(For those who don't know, the way they count the weeks of pregnancy the full gestation period is 40 weeks and normal full term delivery is 40 weeks +/- 2.)
While I'm committed to the idea of not inducing labor before 42 weeks unless medically necessary, the idea of being pregnant for 4 more weeks is quite unpleasant. It seems to me, as a first-timer, that the baby may be "dropping" already, which really wreaks havoc on the bladder.
My last day at work before maternity leave is Friday, so this week will continue to be quite busy. I'm looking forward to getting some extra sleep next week though. Baby--don't come before I get some good napping in! Okay?
