I am officially full term! This feels like quite a major milestone :)
This week I have been having a lot of muscular type pain in my belly. I think my muscles are sick of being stretched to their absolute maximum. It's really annoying and uncomfortable. I guess I need to get used to the discomfort since I am sure it's only going to get worse for the next 3+ weeks.
Over the weekend we had our carseat inspected, which turned out to be a great thing since we didn't have it installed tight enough. They also gave us a few tips about putting the baby in it, and showed me how to use it in a car without the base. It was definitely worth the $30 donation. If you're in Ontario, I would definitely recommend S.E.A.T.S. It gives me peace of mind to know that our little girl will be sitting in a properly installed carseat!!!! This weekend also included my last baby shower. My mother-in-law threw me a lovely shower in the comfort of my own home, which was really nice. The guests were all super generous and we got so much nice stuff, and the majority of it was practical!
This week is my last full week of work, and I couldn't be happier to be starting my maternity leave soon. I am pretty tired and swollen and I just need some time to lay around and rest up before the big day! I have heard that some women have had luck inducing labor by cleaning their house... if I get desperate I may try that!
Any other natural induction ideas?
Here are an assortant of bump pictures for this week... I forgot to take an "official" one, so these iPhone ones will have to do :)
