Brady's Bump- 37 weeks

Due Date: March 24, 2012
Induction Date: March 15th!!!!
Weight gain: +5 lb.
Maternity clothes: Yes
What I miss: Sleeping on my belly, sleeping through the night, bending over, & clear skin
Movement: He kicks all the time…
Sex: BOY!!!! Brady James Seals
Food cravings: Dos-si-dos
What I'm looking forward to: Being done with work. I’m not going back to work after Brady arrives so I only have this week left!!!!
Brady is FULL TERM!!! That is a very big deal to me….I’ve worried this whole pregnancy about going into preterm labor, but thankfully that did not happen. God had really blessed me with a wonderful pregnancy & I’m so grateful!
My appointment this week went well. My doc came in with her calendar and asked us when we wanted to have him! I was pretty shocked but SO excited at the same time! She’s going on vacation this coming Thursday, so hopefully Brady won’t decide to come on his own. I’m going to be induced on Thursday, March 15th (the week of Spring Break). It’s going to be nice to get to have a couple of days before he arrives to get everything together and situated so all I have to focus on when we come home from the hospital is him.
Back to my appointment, his heart rate is still good. I gained 5lbs! I blame it on the Dos-si-does! I just can’t control myself! My cervix are still closed but I’m starting to thin out some (25%). My strep test came back negative, which surprised both my doc & me! We both figured I would fail it, considering my history. My calves, ankles, and fingers are starting to swell every day. I mentioned it to my doc, but she said it’s normal. My blood pressure is good, so I’m not going to worry about it. She just told me to take it easy so I don’t throw myself into labor.
I’m pretty much done with Brady’s room. I’m not quite ready to reveal it just yet, because there might be a few more things I add before he arrives…but it’s 90-95% done. I picked out Brady’s coming home outfit this weekend…he’s going to be so sweet in it. My sister came over today & took a few pics of me & the hubby. They’re not great pics but some I’ll have to remember this time in our lives.

Only 11 more days until we FINALLY get to meet our baby boy!!!!
