I am so bad at updating belly pictures but I guess it's better late than never. I remember thinking I was huge at 25 weeks...Oh how I underestimated the unholy proportions that my uterus could grow to. Here are a couple of shots of me at 34 weeks and I still think that I can't get any bigger but I'm sure I can (and will):
Today I went to the doctor and got an update on Jack. He's a hefty 5 lbs. 1 oz baby now. I told him that I had been feeling crampy lately and he did an *ahem* internal exam to check if there was any activity going on that we should know about.
Now, I may just be a wimp when it comes to uncomfortableness in my hoo-ha area but that doctor has HUGE hands! Looking back at my reaction, I realize that I was a big baby about it and I'm eventually going to have to go through many more internal exams before this baby is due, not to mention the ring of fire, but hopefully I will be under the influence of an epidural for that.
Unfortunately, I am not dilated or effaced at all. :(
Is it bad I feel envious of all of the women that have gone into pre-term labor? I find myself reading a lot of birth stories and hoping that something similar happens to me ending in an early but healthy baby! September can't come fast enough!
On another note, I finally figured out how to convert my ultrasound DVD into a file format that is actually recognizable on the computer. So here it is a little late, my 20 week ultrasound video.
I wish I could illustrate it as it goes but I'm afraid you are just going to have to use your imagination. Have fun!
