So here I am on the verge of hitting 36 weeks...will I make it to 40? Or will this boy decide that he's had enough and demand to be let out early? Everything I read says that most first timers run to due date or later and then everything else says the opposite. All I do know is that everyone pregnancy is different, so only time will tell what will happen with mine.
My new fear is that my body will be doing what it needs to do and I will miss the signs. I have a high tolerance for pain and while before pregnancy I felt in tune with my body, now? Not so much, I am just scared that I will miss all the signs and then go to the bathroom and oops, out falls the baby. Crazy, right? There is no way I am missing the pain from contractions, no matter how much I endured the wicked cramps I use to suffer from and don't miss.
I had been safe from stretch marks, but suddenly in the last week the area just above my belly button has some nice red marks and is itchy! I've been moisturizing, hoping to at least minimize them but we'll see. I'm not too worried about having them, it will be what it will be.
And for the record, our baby furniture still has not come in and the nursery isn't ready and if Baby Boy comes early he will be sleeping in either his stroller, his infant car seat or a dresser drawer! Does this make us bad parents to be???
