37 Weeks and Counting

Welp, another week has come and gone and I had another doctors appointment today. The doctor checked me out and I am still dilated to a one however, I have started to efface (she didn't tell me to what percent) and the baby has dropped further. Last week I was a -3 and this week I am in between a -2/-1. I like to think its -1 but, I know I am getting ahead of myself! I am happy that I am progressing however, I can only hope it speeds up over the next few days.....

On another note. Here are some pictures of my beautiful feet. I know, I know, I look like a relative of Shrek. The worst part is that these pictures were taken on a GOOD day! I am also having some edema....... more like a lot of edema! My legs are swollen all the way up past my knees. I do my best to stay off my feet but that doesn't work so well with substituting. Only a few more weeks and I will be free of swelling!

Before School


After School


The indents that I made with my finger stay for about 15 minutes before they rise back up. I would say they are at least a quarter of an inch deep, probably closer to a third of an inch on a bad day.
