36 Weeks - Any Day Now!

We are SO READY to meet Miss Campbell! I feel like a ticking time bomb. At my weekly doctor visit I found out I am dilated to a 2 but Campbell has not dropped yet so we wait. My doctor and I still feel like she will come in the next week or so. At my next visit she said she might start working on things to maybe push Campbell along which does not sound fun to me (all you moms out there know what I'm talkin' bout).

I have become extremely uncomfortable. Way more uncomfortable than I ever was with Cole. My lower back and pelvis hurt and when I say hurt I mean kill me constantly. I cannot walk or stand for long periods of time. Just lifting my legs to get into the car is painful but it is all worth it.

I have had a few new cravings lately. I cannot eat enough Cheetos and Frosted Flakes. I also saw Nilla Wafers in my pantry the other day and immediately had to make Banana Pudding. And even with all the junk I have been eating I still have not gained anymore weight. It completely blows my mind that I lost a total of 10 pounds but have only gained 6 pounds back. I don't understand how Campbell can be getting bigger and gaining weight but yet it is not reflected in my weight gain. It is a mystery to me but to be honest I am ok with it. My doctor said as long as Campbell continues to grow then there is no problem.

Campbell's room is 99.9999% complete. My brother-in-law, Jon, is making me a picture for on top of her dresser and as soon as that is in I am done. I cannot believe how difficult her room has been and how many times I changed my mind on what I wanted. I love it though. It is so sleek and serene and girly. I will post pictures soon!
So we just wait. Every little pinch or braxton hicks I feel I think "Ok, is this it?!" TMI Warning: With Cole I was peeing in the middle of the night when my water broke so of course every time I use the restroom (which is about 90 times a day) I always wonder if something is going to happen! I will keep you posted!
