Today marks the 40th week of my pregnancy. Much like my pregnancy with Ellery, I am not in labor nor are there any signs of labor starting soon. See my 40th week post here. The only real difference is that this time around, my Doctors and Midwives let me make the decision of whether or not I wanted to be checked each week. So, the last internal exam I had was at 36 weeks. Although it is hard to not know if there have been any changes (a.k.a. has there been any dilatation, etc…) it has been really nice to 1. not get checked (which is awesomely comfortable) and 2. to not worry too much in general as to if and when things might happen. It just will when it’s supposed to (right?! right!?)
In the meantime, we’ve been busy with our new house-renovations start next week and eating our weight in deliciousness.
We went to get a Christmas tree today and Ellery ate about 10 marshmallows by the fire. It’s been a good day.
