38 wks = 9 1/2 months

38 weeks...makes one desperate pregnant woman :D
And this week I have researched pressure points on google. Well, to be completely accurate Todd researched them for me! He found that if you put pressure on the space b/w your thumb and index finger it can help start labor. Tried it, didn't work!! Or you can put pressure for one minute on a place above your ankle and it can start labor. Tried it, didn't work!!! HAHA!! I was thinking that using pressure points was harmless, so that is really all I am planning on trying!! I was just getting desperate b/c my back was hurting and I could not seem to find a way to get comfortable. And constant pain like that will make you CRAZZZZY!!!

Plus, I swear if feels like my belly cannot grow anymore. It isn't humanly possible, right? Yeah, that is what I keep thinking. If he grows anymore I am sure that my ribs will break or my belly button will just pop open!!!! My belly button is starting to pop out!

And in the midst of all of this my husband has been the BEST!!!!!! If I want it, he gets it for me! If I need a backrub he rubs my back. If I need him to research pressure points he does it with no questions. When I lost it lastnight and cried for no reason at all, he was so patient and sweet with me! He is constantly trying to make me feel better! I am the luckiest girl in the world! I could not do this without him! He is such an amazing husband and will be an amazing daddy too!

So I have to say that even though I am ready for baby Noah to arrive, I am still trying to remember to soak in all of this too! And with it being National Infertility Awareness Week what a better reminder to be thankful...suck it up...and remember the journey we had to take to get here! I am so thankful for this HUGE belly, for the backaches that accompany it, for this MIRACLE moving around inside of me!!! So my new philosophy is to enjoy it all, even the not so fun parts!!! I am going to make sure to stare at my belly in the mirror a ton this week and just awe in the gift God has given me. I have often looked in the mirror during our journey and poked out my belly to see what I would look like pg. Well, now I am going to soak it ALL in :D

You look great -- I don't think you're any bigger than I am now at 32 weeks!

I love your attitude as you get ready to meet your sweet boy. I know so many woman want to be pregnant and would do anything to have what I have, and so I try not to complain about being sore or tired, because I know pregnancy is a blessing!

P.S. I found you by way of Loves of Life.

You are super duper close!! I went into labor at 38 weeks. I was raking leaves when my water broke. Try walking your dog...maybe that will do the trick. :o)
