5 weeks left!

Sorry for the late post. I am actually post from home today because I stayed home sick. I taught 6 classes a day at the high school this week and think it finally took a toll on me. My feet have been swelling horribly and now I have a sore throat and runny nose. So let me tell you how fun it is to be swollen, making it hard to walk, then feeling so sick and still not be able to get in and out of bed! OH MY...yes, I am throwing myself a pity party at the moment!!

I did go to the Dr. this week. I am actually measuring a week ahead, which is not really a big deal. My blood pressure was just a touch on the high side, but they are not concerned with that at the moment either. They think Amelia may be almost head down but at my next appointment in 2 weeks if they aren't sure, we are going to do an ultrasound to check her position. I only gained 1 pound this week, so they were also happy with that. I have been having a lot of cramping and pain, but the midwife says all is well and it's just my body preparing for birth. At my 37 week appointment they are also going to do a gentle exam to see if I am progressing at all...I think this was the most shocking thing, because that means there is a baby coming!! WOW!!

So all in all, I'm doing alright, not great, but I just keep thinking I am on the downhill slope and soon our little girl will be here and I will be able to look back and realize how amazing this journey has been.

So here are this weeks pictures...the belly is continuing to grow at rapid rates!! Haha...
Here I am from the side, up 1 pound from last week.
Here is the covered belly!
And here I am from the front...that poor belly button is halfway out!

We missed you at dance on Monday! Ella said, "I'm pretty sure Ms. Heather got her baby out." You wish, right? :-)

Take care of yourself, Heather!!
