Baby Asher 38 weeks.....


Just two weeks to go and I am definitely starting to feel it! I am one stuffed bird! He is getting so tight in there and I can hardly find a position these days that is comfortable! I wake up sore and go to bed sore as if I had been running a marathon all day and night! The good thing is that these are manageable things and pretty normal! I truly do feel blessed to be having my 4th healthy pregnancy! At my latest appointment this past Friday, I hadn't gained any weight, my blood pressure was 104/62, a little more effaced and 2 centimeters dilated! I'm getting there slowly but surely!! The good thing is once I hit active labor (4 centimeters) I usually go super fast!

I did have one small issue this week on Thursday with my heart beating funny and fast! (which has happened in past pregnancies but it just wouldn't go away this time) It makes me feel breathless and it makes it hard to concentrate on anything! Plus, my arm started to feel tingly which was weird! Here is the short story, they were a little worried... they had me come in to get checked at the doc's office.....things were pretty normal but suggested an EKG... I didn't get one that night because of some office mix ups.....The next day at my regular appointment he really wanted me get an EKG at the hospital to see if anything abnormal came up and to get a baseline for future issues! I haven't heard anything from them yet and I have only had it one more time since then and it only lasted for a few hours. I feel fine today which is good!
