We feel so grateful to have reached 37 weeks! The longer Cannon stays put in my belly- the better. Since we are planning a birth with midwives at a birth center- we needed to be past 37 weeks to deliver there, so it’s definitely made us breathe easier.
Cannon definitely dropped this week-which is good and all part of the process- but was SUPER uncomfortable. Thankfully I have a really patient husband who helped me pull on my jeans and tied my shoes for me. There were a couple of days that I could actually barely walk just with the position that he was in, but thankfully it was alleviated within a few days and I felt a lot better.
This week I was really hungry! Considering how much weight Cannon is putting on at this point, I guess that makes sense!
Our midwives have guessed that if we do go to our due date- he will probably weigh in the low 7 lbs or about 7 and a half.
Got all my newborn diapers prepped and ready this week- and we basically finished all of the last minute things we wanted to get done/organized just in case he decides to come early at all.
This week I felt so much better! And although with an even bigger tummy than last week- more comfortable.
I have been taking lots of walks and bouncing away on my yoga ball to help keep him in a good position for birth!
Our midwife said he is definitely low and it could be any day….but we also know that babies do their own thing and we could be waiting 3 more weeks!
Still super hungry this week- I actually gained 2 whole pounds this week! haha, good thing this journey is almost done!
We are so excited at this point to meet our little man!
I took a breastfeeding class this week that was super informative and made me feel a lot more prepared and empowered for that part of mothering. I am very thankful for the good resources that we’ve had access to at our birth center.
