Full Term!

As of today, I am full term! Baby Allen's due date is only three weeks away. The last resort induction date is four weeks and one day away. Four weeks seems like a long time at this point, but the end is definitely in sight.

We are ready for Little One's arrival! The car seats are in the cars, the room is ready, the diapers are bought and my suitcase is packed. We just need Little One to drop down and get ready to come! So far, there's been little action in that direction. We'll see on Friday if the baby's gotten any closer to making arrival plans.

I've started to retain water which is really irritating. My weight is jumping now and it's definitely water since I have very little room for food at this point. My feet are swollen and that's just so unattractive. My engagement ring had to come off though I'm still holding on to my wedding band for now. I'm up to 33 pounds (a gain of four pounds in two weeks!) with a possibility of four more weeks! Oh well, I can do anything for a month, right???

Congrats on making it this far. It is such a relief to know the baby id full term. My feet are terrible and have been swollen for MONTHS! My hands are starting to swell now. Hang in there!

I can feel all of your pain! I have all these things setting in last minute...what is that about?!?! I also made it to week 36 without stretch marks and then those set in, too! Unfortunately, I do not feel as ready as you are! Can you believe how close we are to having babies?!?! SO exciting!
