The day that we have been waiting for and counting down to is here. I AM 40 WEEKS PREGNANT TODAY !!! How crazy is that !!!
I know that a very small percentage of women have their babies on their due date, but I was hoping to have our little girl BY my due date. I honestly always thought that she would come late until my Dr. started saying that she was sure she would be here before then ! Now that it is here and she is still constantly hiccuping and wiggling around in there, I see that she will indeed come after today. Unless of course, she decides to put me into labor very very soon !
My stomach is almost always constantly hard now and my braxton hicks are very constant as they have been for a while. I am getting a fair amount of contractions throughout the day, but they are definitely no where near unbearable. I hope, hope, hope that she decides to come and see us soon. I don't want to rush her though. I am trying to be very patient about it, because if she needs time I want to give it to her and not create extra stress. There is really no need to rush things. A few days are only a few days and she will come soon enough. While I would love to see her, I am happy that she is cozy and growing healthier and stronger each day.
Today, Robert and I have already had a nice breakfast of tasty eggs and toast with marmalade and will head out quite shortly for a nice long walk around our part of Berlin. It is slightly grey out right now, but the sun is supposed to greet us shortly and give us temperatures around 13°C (55°F) Sounds like lovely fall weather to me !!!
