The Benke Christmas! (38 Weeks!!!)

This week-end, my dad, stepmother Jill, and brothers Philip and Scott came to visit. We were able to celebrate Christmas early....which was a lot of fun. We spent a relaxing afternoon together watching the Panthers actually win a game, chowing down some pizza and ROTELLE (not together) and exchanging gifts. I was able to show off the nursery and we made sure to get a few pictures.


Here's the belly at 38 weeks. I can't believe I start my 39th week tomorrow! WOW! Everyone keeps says "Any day now" and "Why didn't you answer your phone? We thought you were having the baby!!" But, this week-end I felt really good. I walked a TON (last minute Christmas shopping) and not many Braxton Hicks contractions (I had more last week). So, now I have this feeling that I am not going anytime soon. Last week, when I felt so miserable, I thought that maybe there was a chance that I was going to go early. Not now though. I feel like I have all this energy....and like he's just camping out! Only time will tell....

have they checked to see if you're dilated any at your appointments yet?

I've asked my doctor not to do internals at this point, so I don't know if I'm starting to dilate or efface. I plan to get one done on December 28th, though. So I'll let you know how that goes!
