My due date has come! And gone......

Well, here I am at almost a week late and not surprised at all.  Last night I was having some pretty painful contractions, but they were only about 12 minutes apart and eventually stopped. Which is fine since Brittany had an orthodontist appointment this morning to get her bottom braces on, and she didn't want to miss it. The sooner she gets them on, the sooner she gets them off.

I stopped walking on the treadmill about two weeks ago, because I could hardly walk for the rest of the day after I walked on it that morning. The baby is pretty low, so that's probably why.

I still haven't been eating sugar (except for this once I went crazy and had 4 chuncks of watermelon and a Braum's ice cream) which was the BEST ICE CREAM I'VE EVER EATEN. 

So, this baby better not be huge, but as the days go on, I know it's only getting bigger.




As evidenced in this photo.

However, this "no sugar" thing has allowed me to gain zero weight in the last two months. So, by the time all is said and done, I will only have gained 45 pounds. Which is still more than I wanted to, but I'd already gained ten pounds before I even knew I was pregnant, because it was Thanksgiving, we went to Chicago, and then Christmas! So, technically I really only gained 35 pounds which is more acceptable.

In my mind.

My last doctor's appointment was on Monday. He said, "Okay, come back in a week." And, then I noticed after I left that the receptionist had scheduled me for next Thursday, which is more than a week. I'll be two weeks overdue by that point, and even later because I'm sure he won't send me over right then to be induced.

So, I'm hoping these stronger contractions mean that labor is sooner than later.

Will it be a boy or a girl?? (No, we didn't find out. We've never found out. That would ruin the surprise.)
