|a little late at 38 weeks|
Yes, I am starting my leave a teeny bit early. My doctor thinks I'll go before my due date which is any day now. I also like the thought of having a concrete leave date instead of leaving it up in the air. I have plenty of things to do before he comes, so having a few extra days or a week to do things will be nice.
I'm still having contractions - some that hurt and some that are just tight and uncomfortable, but not painful. The problem is they never get regular, thus they never go anywhere. I have an ultrasound on Tuesday, so we'll see how big he's gotten. The prenatal nurse on the phone freaked me out a little this past week when I told her that he was 6.2 pounds at 35 weeks. She goes, "Oh, he's gonna be a big boy!" Hmmm. Not very reassuring, I'd say.
