37 weeks: FULL TERM
I hiked the Y with these goofy ladies on Saturday. Okay okay... so I didn't get too far, but it was still decent exercise for someone in my current state of gestation, right? It felt sooo nice to get out and hike in the fresh mountain air. I honestly didn't want to turn back, but Jacob (not pictured) had to go to Priesthood session of Conference and I knew I couldn't keep up with the rest of the non-pregnant crew. Still, I'd like to go back and see if I can hike a little further.
You guys. Today I am FULL TERM. I honestly feel like I still have some time ahead of me, but I'm wrapping my head around the idea that anything from this point on is free game. Baby Robinson can come any time she feels ready to do so.
Two big things I still need to do before she gets here — 1) write my birth plan. 2) pack a hospital bag. I think once I get these two tasks out of the way, I'll feel more at ease and ready to face whatever comes. These are my goals for this week.
Any tips from wise, experienced mothers on both of these tasks? What are some "must-haves" that I should pack for the hospital? Is there a proper way to write a birth plan? I mean, I can write a good resume, cover letter, and pretty decent essays, etc. But a BIRTH PLAN? Why didn't they teach me this in college?
