Getting There

It's been a while since I have blogged. But nothing too exciting happening here, just playing the waiting game and trying to get ready for baby #2 to arrive. 
Since we've been home I've tried to get our lives/rooms organized and ready to go. I've got all the clothes out, just need to wash them, have the pac-n-play and the car seat good to go. 
I have been having 1-2 contractions everyday, but I still think I have a while before this baby's arrival. I have been feeling pretty good for the most part, just have a big bump in the front so I can't move as easy. 
About this time with Thomas I started to swell a little in the face and feet but so far this time I haven't which I'm totally ok with. I have gained 27ish pounds (it's been a week since I've weighed myself) and I'm 37 1/2 weeks along. Mentally, I'm ready to have this baby but I really want him to be in there for 39 weeks because I've read each extra week is that much better for them until 39 weeks it doesn't matter, they've cooked long enough. So my ideal would be to have him at 39 weeks but I think that is wishful thinking.
In my next appointment I will be having a sonogram again to measure how big he is because at 33 weeks he was already 5 pounds, so I'm curious how much he is now.

Anyway, a little update, since I don't have that much to blog about right now.

But here is a lovely picture of me with Thomas at 37 1/2 weeks as well. This was the only picture last time that I recorded how far along I was so I finally have 2 pictures to compare back to back.
