Baby's rapid growth nears an end. The only organ that isn't fully developed are the lungs. This marks the "one month left" mark...it's finally becoming real.
I have been trying to take it easy lately...mainly shorter days at work. My body still feels pretty darn good, with the exception of my back, but a sturdy pillow does the trick. I'm still walking almost every day and haven't experienced any contractions yet (at least that I've noticed).
I met with my doctor today for an exam. Now I start seeing her every week until baby arrives. The good news is I am not dialated or effaced as of yet. This means, labor is not quite in the picture. So far, I have gained 34 pounds throughout the pregnancy. I know it's a good number, but I'm really starting to feel 34 pounds heavier!
