Baby girl is officially 36 weeks and given the meds are no longer stopping contractions, we began our prep for her coming. I desperately needed a pedicure, who doesn't want to see cute toes after not seeing them for so long! Keila can always use some girl time so we went together and enjoyed the pampering. She loved the massage chair and especially the flowers with the link center jewels on her big toes.
Since then I've dropped even further, enough that the ultrasound tech can't get a clear shot of her face, including her eyes, she's just too far down. The concern is now more about my bones spreading too far apart, a dislocations of sorts if you will (known as SPD or leading to diastasis symphysis pubis). The acetaminophen keeps the worst of the pain at bay and I'm exhausted by night. We're ready for her but some things just can't be rushed. Until then, I learn patience - something I was never very good at anyhow, and keep the perspective that great pain can bring great joy - spiritually, mentally and oh my gosh, yes physically! :)
