37 weeks- Full term!

I'm ready whenever he's ready (and I hope that he's ready soon...) Due to not having internet for the past week (MISERY, especially when Jony was out of town! I realized that I am way addicted to the internet), we got a lot of stuff done around the house. There are still a few things here and there that we have left on our list, but it's nothing critical. It's all cleaned and set up for the little man to make his big debut! I'm feeling super uncomfortable. I still enjoy being pregnant, don't get me wrong, but I'd like him to leave soon. The top of my bump hurts all the time like it's being pulled, and my back is really feeling the extra weight out in front. Sleep sucks. I'm so proud of myself if I manage to make it 2 full hours. Of course, I'm fully out of the bed now and "enjoying" my rest in our recliner. Our poor dog is so frustrated at having to move between the both of us, so she's not getting good sleep either.

Let's discuss progress. There's no denying that the boy has dropped. I have trouble putting my legs together. Friday night, I started experiencing some contractions. They were pretty consistent at 10 minutes apart for awhile, but they were very manageable. Those stopped and then I had some irregular, painful ones the rest of the night. Saturday, I felt like absolute crap and almost threw up (would have been the first time this pregnancy!). More irregular, painful contractions that night. Since then- nothing. I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, I'd rather them keep going and pop the boy out. On the other hand, if he's not ready, then I don't want to experience that for a few weeks. Next appointment is on Thursday, so we'll see if I get an internal!
