Less than Five Weeks and Counting!
As my mom just wrote to me via email, "You are carrying one big baby boy!"
Although I have had a happy and healthy pregnancy so far, I have to admit that I am so ready for my little guy to come out. I do not think I could have imagined in a million years how heavy and uncomfortable I would feel in these last two months of pregnancy. My poor husband and co-workers are forced to listen to me sighing and whining on a daily basis.
But there is a beautiful light at the end of the tunnel! Sometime soon (hopefully sooner rather than later), our baby boy will be here and we cannot wait to meet him!
A week from Friday, I will be at 37 weeks, meaning the baby is considered to be full term. Maybe I'm crazy, but I plan to do everything I can safely do to encourage the baby to make his grand entrance. Some things I've read that can help include eating spicy food, rubbing my ankles, acupuncture, and having sex. Do you have any fun tips to share about initiating labor? I'd love to hear them!
