Let's see... Last time I wrote I was 26 weeks along. I am now 37 weeks and 4 days. I feel like these last weeks have been going by so slow! Last week at 36 weeks my doctor checked me and I was dilated 1cm and 70% effaced. She checked again yesterday and I'm still 1cm but 80% effaced. She went ahead and did a membrane stripping to move things along. I've been having some pretty strong period like cramping for about two weeks now. I wish it would just go away or things would get moving. I know I still have two weeks but they are so bothersome. Although, I would rather have a happy, health baby and be uncomfortable than a sick baby.
Jon started a new job last week where he is on the road for five days and home for the weekend. The farthest he goes is about four hours away. So hopefully when my body says it's time he'll make it here in time for the birth. I don't think I've shared what he is doing now that he is out of the Army. He is a truck drive. Yep, he drives 18-wheelers. He hauls anything from corn, fertilizer, soymeal and other commodities.
Things are pretty lonely here especially since I don't know really know anyone. Sure, I know the people I work with but they aren't people I would ever hang out with. They just aren't my "type" of friends. Speaking of work I guess my boss decided it was time for me to just not work anymore. I was trying to work right up until I gave birth. He had other plans though. Friday is my last day on the schedule. I guess it gives me time to relax and clean this place up some more. Not that I haven't been on a cleaning spree or anything of the sorts.
I'm really hoping that my Mom can make it up here for the birth as well. I'm really scared that Jon and my Mom won't get here in time. I'm already scared of the whole labor part as it is. My luck I will be doing it all alone. Fingers and toes crossed that I won't though.
Now that I won't be working I hope to have more time to blog.
I'll leave you with some belly pictures and 3d/4d pictures of Beau.
