Full term

Well, I'll be damned.

Yesterday I reached 37 weeks, which, I'm told, makes Bat Girl officially full term. How the hell did that happen?

Way back in July, when it seemed like I bled every time I moved, or in October, when I was contracting like crazy and being put on bed rest, if you had told me that I would actually carry this pregnancy to term, I would never have believed you. I would never have believed that having contractions every 10 minutes would become a way of life for months on end; that I would eventually get used to spending my days alone and not leaving my apartment for a week at a time; that I would be here, at the end of January, with a pink-festooned nursery (though I still choke on the word, "nursery") and stacks of baby clothes and diapers and a car seat/stroller that I can look at without making a sign to ward off the evil eye; that, in short, I would be here, at 37 weeks, with every indication that, hey, this pregnancy thing might just work out after all.

It's been a hell of a ride, that's for sure.

OMG you & BatGirl made it, go the UU! What a massive relief to hit this milestone, happy c-sectioning in the very near future.

Hooray! How fabulous! I'm so excited for you and BatGirl. Not the pregnancy anyone wants, but you sure can't beat going full term. Give your uterus a pat on the back from me. (Do uteruses have backs? Sure they do...)
