Here I am today, at 37 weeks (almost 38). I feel absolutely huge! My belly is so tight, there is no more room for Ethan. The lower back pain is pretty bad right now. I had my doctor appointment today, and my Dr. told me the baby had definitely dropped (he could feel the head down really low). He also checked me and said I am 1-2 cm dilated, and that my cervix is definitely thinning (is it your cervix that thins?? Whatever it is that thins, it is thinning...haha....my brain is a little dense right now). He thinks Ethan may come a little early. I guess it could happen at any time! Kinda crazy! I haven't really had any real contractions yet, only Braxton Hicks ones. I guess we'll see what happens :) Matt's birthday is next Friday, so it would be funny if Ethan decided to share a birthday with his Daddy.
Look down lower (at Wednesday's post), and I have pictures of my belly from the past nine months.
