9 Months Pregnant
|Baby bump at 9 months pregnant|
I am 39 weeks and 2 days pregnant today. It’s still hard to believe that I’m in the last week of pregnancy. With 6 days to go, I am having Braxton hicks/ false labor almost every day.
Tuesday and Wednesday gave me a scare and I was almost convinced that I was going into true labor. I was however hopeful that the baby would sit tight for just one more day as I really wanted to attend my daughter’s parents day in school on Thursday. I’ve been dying to know how she is in school, and the thought of meeting and speaking with her teacher excited me more than anything else.
‘She’s a good girl, very hardworking and extremely confident,’ the teacher gushed. I expected to hear nothing less, but the confident part made me very happy. A woman can never be too confident. I’m just glad I’m raisin a girl with a healthy self esteem.
It’s been very cold lately and I’m starting to think that this is probably one of the worst times of the year to give birth. I cannot begin to imagine how terrible it would be to deliver in this cold, but the good thing is that by the time we are ready to be up and about, the sun will be back, the cedar swingsets will be out, and the pools will be ready for us.
I’m looking forward to labor, meeting and finding out the sex of my baby, and to doing away with all the pains and weight. This pregnancy has definitely taken a toll on my body and I cannot wait to pay it back with a little loving in form of work-outs.
I’ll conclude the pregnancy posts with this image of the third trimester baby bumps.
