37+ weeks!

The countdown is officially on!
I am 37 weeks + 2 days so baby girl really could come any day now. I had Juno at 38+2 (one week from today!) and Tempe and Helena at 39 weeks so I can't help but think she'll come some time late next week or next weekend. Maybe that's wishful thinking, but I am progressing quite a bit and I'm already past the point of progression that I was at my last appointments before going into labor with Tempe and Juno.
The thing is, I feel so comfortable and physically well that I can't imagine going into labor any time soon! At night my back on the left side and my ribs on the right side hurt pretty bad (I guess I just tire myself out during the day) but besides that, really no complaints. I could easily go to my due date except I am so anxious to have my sweet girl in my arms!
(And I said basically the same exact thing at this point in my pregnancy with Juno and then had her 10 days later!)
So, I just have to document the fact that I have not worn a single item of maternity clothes this entire pregnancy. Not one. I've gained 20 pounds and my fundal height is right on track, but I am just really not showing much at all. People are seriously shocked when I tell them my due date. I think I just carry my babies straight up and down and in my ribcage so my belly doesn't stick out much. I've always been small in my pregnancies, but this one is definitely the smallest baby belly. I mean, I am really wearing my regular jeans, still buttoned and everything, just a little bit lower on my waist than normal. But maybe that is just saying something about my pre-pregnancy body...
Clothes are washed and put away, I'm stocked up on diapers, blankets, and burp cloths, the freezer is filling up nicely, and I've gotten back in the baby game by babysitting a cute little six month old three days a week :) Now all I need is the baby!

You do look great! That's so nice your pants aren't bothering you or anything, I'm not very big yet but already having to unbutton my top button sometimes haha. So exciting that you're this close!
