38 weeks and 3 days, folks! That's right - I'm just days away from having this baby (due date May 1). I am so excited. I feel calm and confident about it all. I am excited to experience labor and birth and (a little anxious) the first moments of motherhood!
I am so blessed to have experienced such a blissful pregnancy. I have been able to stay active and healthy through it all and Baby Girl is right there with me. She has a strong heart beat and loves to kick her little legs late at night.
I am measuring pretty small (36 cm at my appointment today) but they did a quick ultrasound and everything is okay! So, she just might be a little tiny to begin.
I also broke out into a complete all over body rash last week (after a quick dip in the hot tub - oops! My muscles were sore, I had to!) and OUCH! It was terrible. I was itchy and red for 3 days, but thankfully it has cleared up and I am doing great. I don't know what it was, but it was ugly. I took some herbs for skin and nurtured it back to health!
Today my wonderful friend Jessie took some belly pictures. They are beautiful. She also took some of my nursery - which I will soon share!
I am so excited to meet little Miss Brown (still no name...). When will she come?! Oh, this is so exciting!!!
