Bump Update: 38 Weeks

My belly has basically looked the same for the past month. I sometimes feel like my baby has dropped and my stomach takes on a different shape, but then the next day it looks round again. 

This week I was so disappointed when I went to my doctors appointment and was told that I hadn't dilated at all since last week. I was expecting at least a full centimeter, maybe even two centimeters. 

My doctor told me he is pretty positive I have at least another two weeks. That also made me sad. 
I've accepted it now though. I will be patient. 

On the bright side, I'm FINALLY feeling what I think are braxton hicks contractions. I get really excited when I start to feel them because I can actually feel my PROGRESS. It's a nice reminder that I don't have to wait much longer.
