Almost 38 weeks.

Tomorrow, I will officially be 38 weeks pregnant!  I cannot believe how fast this pregnancy has flown by (I think I say this every week)!  Next Friday, we're scheduled to be induced (if she doesn't come sooner).  For those of you wondering why we decided to be induced early, let me explain...

1. I'm a planner
2. I'm already progressing (I'm currently 3 cm dilated and 90% effaced)
3. I've never been so uncomfortable, and we're ready to meet our little girl!

I had my weekly check-up on Tuesday, and during my appointment my doctor stripped my membranes and told me that I should be ready to go any time now!  I can't believe it.  I've been having irregular contractions, back pain, cramping, etc.  Nights are so uncomfortable and I literally feel like a walrus when I roll out of bed 5+ times a night to go to the bathroom.  I have so much pressure in my "who who" area, that I sometimes feel like she's going to fall right out!  My doctor estimates that she's in the 7.5 lb. range:)  To date, I've gained 35 lbs.  Woof!

Last night, AJ packed a bag because he thought this was going to be it.  The thing is, he only packed things for Baby Saigh... not for mama:)  He is so ready to be a dad!

I'm going to do my best to blog every day up until delivery, and my plan is to blog from the hospital too.  I think it will be really fun to look back on our experience years from now, and read what I was actually going though during the labor process.  You only have your first baby once!

See you soon Lil' Miss Saigh.
