Full Term. We are full term. It seems like just yesterday we were TTC, I was waking up every single morning at 6 to temp, stressing over every little symptom in the 2 weeks leading up to AF. Now we could have our little miracle any day now. :) What an amazing feeling!
As you can see from my beautiful picture in the post below: I'm very swollen. It gets worse by the day, but the doctor still says everything is okay, so I'm trusting she's right. It is so ugly though! I can't fit in any of my shoes, and I sure don't want to expose the world to my grossness by wearing flip flops. I think it's come to that though. I'm wearing a Walmart faux diamond band in lieu of my beautiful wedding ring. :( I couldn't just not wear a ring, so we spend a whopping $8 on an extra large band for the time being.
Good news! (A little TMI so if you don't want to know, don't read any further.)
I lost my MP Sunday!! I woke up, went to the bathroom, and noticed it was coming out in chunks! Yeeaaah!! Yes - I am ->that<- excited about my grossness. I know it could still mean weeks, but progress is progress, right?!
