My BP was creeping up still... now it is 150/80 so my doctor let me stop working I now have time to enjoy being pregnant and get the house in order. I am soooooo excited to be done working.

Dave nick-named the baby yesterday. Tank. LOL He is gonna be a big boy My guess is 9 1/2 lbs. He was 6lbs 14oz at the last u/s at 36 weeks. I am not afraid of a big baby. My son was 8lbs 15oz and that was my first almost 18 years ago.

My only real fear right now is having to have a C-section for medical reasons. I will fight till the end to avoid one, but I am scared something will happen that forces me to have one. Like if his life really and truely is in danger. I will not risk losing him if something serious goes wrong. I am just going to put all those thoughts out of my mind. I need to stay positive.

I can't wait to have a NCB again I have been dreaming about being able to do this again since I had my daughter 14 years ago. I feel like this pregnancy has flown by and pray the delivery isn't too quick. My twin sister had my neice in 23 minutes. That was way too fast. I barely had time to turn the camera on! I am hoping for a nice 3-4 hour labor with no complications.

Thanks for listening to me ramble..... I am sure I will be doing more of that in the next couple weeks. Now that I have TIME I feel like I am on vacation!

Thanks girls

I have done NOTHING so far. LOL I am sooo darn tired.

Funny thing though.... I was in the shower today and I found my cervix again...LMAO I was curious if I could find it and man is it soft. I almost didn't recognize it.... I miss charting and temping.

So that was my fun for the day
