37 Weeks: Pregnancy UPDATE

You know in the last week I have had more people/strangers approach me and ask me when I am due.  Most of the people will say something funny like "due at what 6pm tonight"  or "due yesterday"  "I bet you are due any day now."  Strange thing is I am not due till March 28th.  Last night at Olive Garden I had so many people do a double take when they saw me.  I'm not sure if it was me being sensitive but I felt like all eyes on me.  Not a good or a bad thing just noticed it.  Maybe it was the dress I was wearing... my pastor did  say to me when I wore it a few weeks ago "the 70's are calling and they want their dress back."  LOL it is a very comfortable dress and I love not having to wear jeans... leggings = more comfort!  :) 

So what did the Doctor say today?
We did not check if I was dilated or effaced today but she said we could next week if I don't have baby before then.  Baby's heartbeat was 139!  I did not gain any weight this last week so that is nice to hear!  Doc said my sugar in my urine was a bit elevated today but I think I will blame that on the raspberry lemonade I had at the Olive Garden, and the 2 glasses of apple juice I had yesterday.  (I also ate some of the robin eggs... Easter candy.)  So she advised me to be more careful with my food choices!  She said I am all in the clear to have the baby any day with no worries.  She said full term is considered 38 weeks but 37 is safe and normal.  :)  Have I mentioned that I am ready??  Doctor also told me that she wanted my contractions to be 5 minutes apart for at least an hour before I go to the hospital.  This is new to me because with my daughter my water broke and that was obvious a time to head to the hospital.  Not sure if I want the same experience where my water breaks or if i do the whole contraction timing!  All morning yesterday it was consistent with 20 minutes apart but after I woke from my nap they were gone.

Hi I'm a new follower from MFM. With my daughter my water broke and I never got contractions. They didn't wait more that 24 hours after that though and had an emergency c-section. She was 10 days early. I will keep you in my prayers.

Yeah! Seems like the baby is sitting high. I think that may be why people are staring.

You go girl!

You think I'm carrying high?? I think I carried my daughter higher as I felt more discomfort in my rib cage with her. Some people think I have dropped but I am not convinced yet either.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
