Baby Update: 37 weeks

Common question: Are you in labor? 
Answer: I have no idea. 
Then comes: Do you think he will come early? 
Answer: I have a feeling he is going to be 2 weeks late. Just because I hope he is like that-his own person. It takes guts to make your mum go on bed rest, cause contractions for months and THEN come late. Ha. Gutsy kid, very gutsy!

Here is what he is up to:

Babe News: 
Age: 37 weeks.
Size: A winter melon. Between 18-20 inches and 6-9 lbs. {Wha?}
Cool like events: Practice breathing, blinking, and gripping. Pooping [serious]

Jocelyn News: 
Doing well. Having contractions that are getting stronger, but not too painful. I am not really uncomfortable, at least not enough to say 'get this kid out of me!' Something that I think must come before I am ready to go into labor? I don't really know. All I can say is, this could be a mental T R I P.

I refused a 'check' at the midwife's office because frankly, I don't want to know. I don't want to know if I am 'getting close' and I don't want to know if I am not. Right now I want to enjoy the baby prep with my husband, going to dinner, cuddling on the couch and dreaming about what our son will be. And of course, talking about what we are going to name this child. We took one name off the list and then added 2. I just hope he doesn't look like a raisin when he comes out but rather like a person that we can name...but I have never seen a newborn that didn't look like a raisin so chances are slim to none eh? 

That's the story, see you later!

p.s. House progress is going awesome! I can't wait to show you pics of the nursery. I HOPE to be done this week! Still not nesting...just feeling the pressure to get 'everything' done.
