37 & 38 Weeks
So today I am actually 38 weeks pregnant! I thought I may have been going into labor last night because I had contractions from dinner time (around 6 pm) until I made myself fall asleep around 11ish. They felt different that the contractions I have been getting off and on because I had lower back pain that was coming in waves right before my tummy tightened up and I was getting cramps as well. I have an app on my iPad for timing contractions and Hector made me start using it. I was averaging about 8 contractions in an hour. They must have tapered off around when I made myself try to go to sleep. I was very tired and when I put a heat pack on my lower back it made me relax more and I was able to go to sleep.
I will go to my 38 week appointment on Monday morning. My parents are coming to town on Sunday and it will be really nice to have them here to help out as well. Hector and I are so blessed to have such wonderful family members to spoil us and our children! We love you all!
