Still pregnant

Tomorrow is our due date and I am still pregnant.

I thought for sure Silas would have arrived this weekend, but we were wrong. He is still holding on strong!

We had an appointment on Tuesday and there had been no changes from when we went to L&D on Saturday.

My blood pressure was 120/75, had no proteins in my urine, and had even lost a pound!

Silas's heart rate started off really low, but jumped back up to normal so they wanted me to have a non-stress test done and L&D, so after my appoint I headed over there.

I was a little keyed up given I haven't had much sleep since Friday night and I thought for sure our little guy would be here by now. I also managed to show up over an hour early for my appointment and was disappointed that I had not changed at all.

I spoke to the midwife on call and she went over the monitoring tape. She said Silas looked textbook perfect and that everything with me was normal besides being worked up. We talked about the importance of breathing and taking in enough liquids and trying to relax.

She prescribed an anti-anxiety med to help me rest and get some sleep at night. I'm only taking a small amount and only at night. I took it last night and it was amazing. I slept so well. I had to get up a few times for the bathroom, but was able to get back to bed with no problems. I got up around 10:45 this morning and felt wonderful after having so much sleep. I feel very well rested.

Once I got up and going my sister came over and she took me out. We went to the mall out in Scottsdale and walked around for a few hours. She bought Silas a build-a-bear bear. We just picked out a bear and a t-shirt that says "it's a boy". We named it Mr. Bearington and gave him Silas' due date as his birthday.

I was so tuckered out that I fell asleep in the car on the way home. I'm still really tired, but don't want to nap anymore otherwise I may not sleep tonight. Silas is currently moving around and causing a lot of back pressure and sharp pains, but at least he is moving around... maybe he'll realize that he is running out of room and will try to make an appearance soon!

Pictures are both 39 weeks and 4 days
