How far along: 40 weeks today! AHHHHH why am I still pregnant? I thought the supermoon + bloodmoon + harvest moon would make some magic happen, but NOPE. I seriously never considered the possibility that I would have an October baby. It’s sort of difficult to accept that fact, even now. I’m kind of praying I will go into labor at this very moment.
Gender: Expecting a little Miss Bean
Total weight gain: about 26lbs.
Clothes: I’m not going out much anymore so I’m mostly bumming around in an oversized T and boxers. Really, really attractive stuff.
Body changes: Let’s see… my belly is GIGANTIC. I lost a bit of my mucus plug. And I’ve had loose bowels for about a week. (Like I said, pregnancy really brings out your most attractive self.) Anyway, I guess those are all signs that I will be in labor.. at some point.. eventually.
Symptoms: I had a bout of prodromal labor. I had really uncomfortable contractions that woke me up and kept me awake for a few hours. I got really excited that I might be in labor. And then nothing.
