Sorry I have been MIA for so long! It seems everyone is still doing okay on here. I have been so busy at work that I don't have time to do much. My feet, ankles & legs are so swollen that when I do get home from work, I just relax with them up on the couch & don't really get on the computer.


I am now at 38 weeks & 2 days. This past Wed. when I went to the dr. I finally got my scheduled delivery date. We are scheduled for Tuesday, July 20th at 8:30am. I will be 39 weeks & 5 days by then so I hope I can make it that far! However, the past two weeks I haven't moved to quite 2 cm yet. I go again this Wed. for my last dr. appt. so hopefully I won't be any further dialated so that I can make it to our scheduled date.


If I can walk & drive this coming week then Fri. the 16th will be my last day at work. I am so tired & sore but it would be nice to get one more week of pay before I go on maternity leave. It would really help out with my bills if I can do it. Then I won't go back officially until the Tues. after Labor Day.


On a positive note, I have everything ready for this little girl's arrival. I just finished buying the last few necessary items today so that makes me feel better. I didn't need much but just wanted to get them otherwise I would worry about it! LOL!! Could have gotten them after she was born but probably wouldn't feel like going out as much after the c-section so better to do it now.


Good Luck to everyone who is approaching their due date & lots of hugs & good wishes for those just beginning their journey!

Michelle, it sounds like you are ready! I think it is so much harder to be pg in the summer--the swelling seems worse! Enjoy your last week of work and I look forward to hearing all about your new little girl and her birth! It is nice to know the end is in sight. July 20 is only 10 days away!
