Pregnancy: Week 37

Well, we made it safely into full term. The appointment with our midwife Marijke went as well as usual. She was chatty as ever. When she checked Xander's position, she informed us that she's pretty sure he's going to come "a few weeks" early because he is well into position and has dropped considerably since she last saw me. Eeeep! Hoping we at least make it through to Wednesday. Ross would lose his vacation pay and his overtime if he misses work tomorrow or Tuesday... we'd take quite a hit. I'm really still hoping to make it to the 16th, which was Dad's birthday. That would only be a week early, though.

The pelvic pain has not been as bad and I'm having fewer Braxton Hicks. I am getting a new pain... sharp jolts in my lower back... usually a moment or two after I get a headbutt to the pelvis. Most likely Xander is hitting a nerve, but it makes me panic slightly when it happens because a similar symptom was the only reason my mom knew she was in labor with my little sister.

Should be posting baby pics any day...
