At 37 weeks we had a false alarm.  I was having contractions coming about every 4 1/2 min for an hour.  I called my doc and she told me just to go in and get checked out.  We, of course, got super excited! We packed the bags up in the car and took a picture just in case it was the last pic to memorialized  this pregnancy.  So....here is my 37 week picture (we took it with an iPhone because the camera was already packed). 

I was super bummed that it wasn't the real deal.  I apologized to everyone saying how sorry I was but that I had no idea what I was doing.  My doctor told me not to worry about it.  She said she went in 3 times with her first baby and she was an OBGYN!!

Now I'm 38 1/2 weeks along.  My favorite things that have happened this past week:
  1. A man asked me if I was having twins - Zach quickly escorted me away before I had a chance to tell him what I thought about his manners.  
  2. Everyone saying, "So....you're still hanging in there."  Yep - I guess I am.
  3. The look I get from strangers when I'm out in public.  Their eyes no longer say....."look at that cute little pregnant woman." Their eyes now say...."poor girl.  It looks like she's about to pop."
I didn't take a 38 week picture so I'll try and make sure I take a picture at 39 weeks - if we make it that far! :)

I think I would have told that man about his manners as I was being escorted away...lol! You look great! How exciting that you are so close! Can't wait to see 39 weeks and then baby pics!

If it makes you feel any better, one of our close friends is due on the 20th - about the same as you. She was in Home Depot and had to move this guys cart to get by, she apologized, to which he responded, "well, it wouldn't be such a problem if you weren't such a wide load". Can you believe it?!? What a crazy guy. She was speachless. Anyway. We are so excited for you. I wish we were closer. Can't wait to see pics of your new addition.
