38 Weeks

I'm 38 weeks pregnant - 1 week to go!!!

Last week I had another ultrasound to check on Mason's growth and got a few cute ultrasound pictures in the process... Mason measured right on track - approximately 6 lb 14 oz and my doctor said he anticipates him being about 7.5 lbs next Monday when I'm induced - we'll see! Luke is getting REALLY excited - he's been practicing holding his stuffed elephant and every day he does a countdown, counting down the days until he gets to become a big brother. He's also been talking about how he needs to go to the store and pick out LOTS of Hot Wheels cars to give to Mason at the hospital when he's born - and that he'll hold onto them and play with them until Mason's big enough :)

Friday was my last day of work - Doctor's orders - due to some crazy swelling in my feet, calves and pretty much everywhere else. I've mentioned before how much feet gross me out, so you can imagine how looking down and seeing feet that don't belong to me would totally freak me out :) hahaha The two pictures on the left are what my feet typically looked like when I got home from work and the picture on the right is after a day of bedrest... still not back to normal, but definitely a little more familiar.

I'm really looking forward to this week of relaxing and resting and trying to "bank" some sleep before next week. Can't wait!
