Wow...3 weeks or less to go...can you believe it?!?! I thought this time would never come...
I finished work last week and I'm now officially "on leave." It's nice. We did a lot of work in the girls' room last weekend and we're all ready should the lil girl decide to arrive early!
I was really proud of myself yesterday - went to the gym and ran 5 miles on the treadmill! I think I am a lot more wimpy when I'm by myself. LOL It is a lot more motivating working out when you have a couple of "cardio queens" on each side of you busting their butts. I ran at about a 5.8 mile pace and it felt good. Very surprised I can still do that at 37 weeks!
I went to the doc last Friday - she checked me and said my cervix is "very soft" but still not dialated and pretty long. She has limited availability this week, so I will be seeing the nurse practitioner. I'll see my reg. doc at 38.5 weeks. She ventured to guess I would "still be pregnant then."
I got a terrible leg cramp a few nights ago! I woke up screaming in agony and tried to get out of bed as fast as I could, knowing I could alleviate the pain if I stood up. I got all tangled up in the sheets and tumbled out of bed! We have a very high bed, too... but I had a bunch of pillows on the floor so thankfully I didn't hurt myself. Mike woke up in a panic shouting, "What's wrong?!" He had terror in his voice! I guess he thought I was going into labor. As soon as I stood up on my foot, the cramp went away. However, my calf ached for the entire rest of the day! What a way to wake up!
