How Far Along: 40 weeks

What Baby Mac Is Up To: Baby Mac is the size of a small pumpkin. Yes, you read that right.

We have a full-grown baby on our hands! Just waiting to see when he/she is ready to come out and play.

How I’m Feeling: SO restless! I just can’t focus or sit still for longer than ten minutes. We’re headed to the doctor today and will schedule an induction for June 10 in the event I don’t go into labor on my own. Really hoping I go this week, though – our primary doctor is on call, and it would mean so much to have her deliver Baby Mac.

I’ve started having contractions, but nothing at regular intervals. This is a serious waiting game.

What I’m Wearing: Stretchy dresses and flat sandals. My feet and hands are starting to swell a little, so comfort is key right now.

What’s On My Mind Lately: Analyzing every twinge, kick, and cramp. Am I crazy to be wishing for contractions this much? (Don’t answer that.)

What I’m Craving: Fruit, water with lemon, and ice cream. Basically anything sweet and cold to combat my frequent hot flashes.

What I’m Looking Forward To: Hopefully giving birth this week and meeting our Baby Mac! My parents are driving in as soon as I go into labor, and my siblings will be coming to the hospital when the baby is born, so I feel lucky to be surrounded by family right away. It’s really hard being so far away from Mac’s family, but we have the IPad packed so that we can Skype with the baby as soon as possible.

Coolest Moment This Week: Spending this last weekend before baby with Mac and my best friend. It brought me so much comfort and felt like a last hurrah of sorts.
