Countdown begins

100 days to go!!! I’ll be in the double digits tomorrow! Just 79 days until I am full term.
25w5d. I am so damn tired and irritable. I cried this morning at a stinkin’ PBS commercial where a little girl is sad and her mother doesn’t have time to sit and chat with her. I’ve been waking up with sore throats the past several days so maybe that is partly to blame. But honestly, I have almost no energy at all. I am tired of it too!!! I keep thinking he must be growing a bunch to wear me out so much but I really don’t think he’s bigger than normal right now. Total weight gain so far (my scale) is 7 1/2 pounds. From my lowest point it’s 10 1/2 pounds. I am okay with that.
Straight from my journal, here’s how things played out last time:
36 wks- very soft but corked up tight
37 wks- 1 cm dilated but no effacement
38 wks- almost 2 cm, 50% effaced, lost some mucus plug
39 wks- 2 cm, no effacement change
40 wks- 1 to 1 1/2 cm (yes, backwards!)
41 wks- no change, baby estimated to be 10 1/2 lbs and free floating
Tonight is Little Gym #3. Thursday is my next OB appt.

  1. So exciting! I didn’t realize you went so long with Brendan. Both boys I went early due to blood pressure issues. I hope to go longer next time.
