Belly – Week 40

I went to see my midwife tonight at 6:30pm. She finally understood how badly I wanted to be done with pregnancy, so she offered to strip my membranes. I jumped at the offer! “Yes please! Anything would be great.”

It didn’t hurt as bad as I thought it would. And to my surprise, she said “Wow, you seem to be tolerating this really well.” I just shrugged my shoulders like “Eh…” and she said, “You are going to be great in labor!” *beams* I knew I had a high pain tolerance, but that pretty much confirmed it for me. I don’t feel nervous anymore.

Before I left, she also gave me a tincture of Black and Blue Cohosh and told me that it was strong, potent stuff and I would probably go into labor tomorrow afternoon if I started taking it once an hour as soon as I woke up. YAY!!!!

Finally… I can’t wait for tomorrow morning to come.

So, in anticipation and hopes that I will have the baby tomorrow, I had my hubby take some Week 40 belly pictures. Here they are:
