Getting closer...

Dear Elliot,
I can't believe I'll be 36 weeks pregnant in two days! I've been keeping busy with doctor's appointments twice a week and trying to get the house baby-ready for you. I've also been trying to get my body baby-ready (or I guess delivery-ready). I've been doing a lot of walking and trying to be active and I think it's working--as of Friday I was starting to dialate! I was only at 1cm, and I know that can mean absolutely nothing, but its encouraging to know that my body is beginning to at least think about getting you out :)

Here's a quick picture of the belly at 35w4d:


I am at the point where I feel noticeable bigger almost every morning. I am also just generally uncomfortable all the time. Like the only way I feel okay is laying on my side or standing or walking (but not for too long or I get all crampy!) Your movements are pretty intense these days too. You seem to really enjoy pushing your feet into my ribs--to the point where I actually think a couple of them might be bruised! I'll take it though!

I can't believe we only have a few weeks left. I'm both really anxious to have you in my arms, and a little bit sad to see our special time together coming to an end. Mostly the first part though :)

Alright, Baby Boy. I love you more than words can say. Keep growing for just a little while longer!

XOXO,
Mom
