Average size or bigger?

Ok, so I have been a slacker on the belly pictures. I actually have not taken another belly shot since week 35. With the holidays & being sick & just having no energy, but just a little bit to get some things done before baby girl gets here, I just haven't taken them. Plus, my belly doesn't look like it has changed much to me anyhow. But, of course then others make comments like, "Do you think you can get any bigger?" lol...this one always makes me crack up. Gee thanks, I don't know! Anyway, we are 38 1/2 weeks now, will be 39 on Thurs & next week is the actual due date. January 12, 2012. But, we shall see what will take place. Last Friday I had my Drs. appointment & everything still looks good with me & baby. However, the midwife started asking questions such as; "How tall are you?" "How big were you when you were born?" "How about your husband?" "How late was your mother past her due date?" So, with answering 5'3", 8.14, almost 10lbs & 2 weeks, they will be seeing me back this Thursday to do an ultrasound to measure & weigh baby girl & see what might be happening in the next few days. Also, they did a quick look on the monitor of her then & she is still head down, but face up. So, we will see if she's turned over too. I had a few braxton hicks contractions last night that I thought were real for about 45 minutes, but then they started getting farther apart & finally went away. Miss Matti decided she just wasn't ready I guess. I will fill you all in after Thurs. to see where we stand with baby's arrival! It's a little nerve racking with how close we are to holding our sweet baby in our arms!!!

So close! And once she's here, time goes by so quick, you wouldn't believe.

As for face up, have they suggested doing any pelvic tilts? My sister was face up and my mom labored on her hands and knees, it helped relieve the back pain. I'd check out spinningbabies.com, if you haven't already, and try to get her turned around for an easier labor :)
