week 39: one more week

april 20 - 26, 2013
Week 39
pregnancy journal:
My doctor’s appointment this week went just about the same as last week.  Nothing new.  I gained another pound and my weight is right on track.  I go back on Monday and they will be checking again for dilation and effacement but until then, we just sit and wait.  I tried to continue with my morning walks this week but for some reason, exhaustion has hit me like a tidal wave.  Ten minutes into my walk and I feel like I could lie down on the sidewalk and fall asleep.  I have decided to listen to my body and rest from now on.
Total weight gain: 24 lbs
(1 lb since last appt)
I am still getting all of the last minute things together which is becoming a never ending process.  Every time I cross something off the list, I think of something else to add to it.  Something else that I’ve been working on is trying to get Loyal prepared.  I know that he is really busy with work right now and doesn’t have much free time at all.  I completely understand that doing the amount of research and preparation that I have done is much more of a women’s role and he is probably relying on me to share the knowledge, which I don’t mind doing.  After doing so much research, I feel much more comfortable and confident with labor approaching.  I can tell that he is very nervous, which I think most men are when it comes to having a baby.  Don't get me wrong, I am nervous too.  Freaking out a little, actually.
fyi to all the dad's out there: falling asleep while your wife is reading you your responsibilities in her birth plan, maybe isn't such a great idea :/
