Let me start this post by saying the following: I truly do enjoy being pregnant, and I know what a blessing it is. I have been so lucky. I have breezed through 2 pregnancies with no complications. 90% of the time, I feel GREAT. Even now, it hasn't slowed me down a bit. I still go non-stop all day with Abby, I can still exercise, no swelling, little pain, etc. BUT....yep, here it comes.....BUT.....
I AM DONE! I will be 38 weeks this weekend, and I am just ready to not be pregnant anymore. Look at me...I am a HOUSE! I want my body back, I want my energy back, I want my coffee drinks back (haha!), I want to go run a couple of miles, I want my work-outs back, I want my clothes back, I want to sleep for longer than 1 hr. without having to pee. Am I miserable??.....depends when you ask me (most of the time, NO!:), but YES!...the last few days it is all getting harder. My pelvis feels like it has been cracked in two, my legs feel like they are going to fall out of socket at any min., and I have contractions all day long. Even my cute maternity clothes look bad! :( haha!
If I go to my appt. on Tues. and they tell me that I am locked up tighter than Fort Knox, then I might start crying. I never had any REAL contractions until the morning I went into labor with Abby, but I have been having contractions for almost a week now. I am hoping I go in, they say, 'WOW, Andrea....you are 5cm dilated.' And, then I can say, 'SUPER...can I have my epidural now, before I go home!' haha! Yes, wishful thinking, I know! One can dream, though, right??? Scott is terrified that my water is going to break, and he is even more afraid that it is going to break on his precious recliner (he really does want me to put liners down on it and in the car-haha!), so I hope that my water breaks in some dramatic fashion, so that I have a good story to tell, and so he is completely freaked out! haha!
Okay, I'm done complaining for the day!! Onto the postive things....I have carried her to full-term, so we are praying and hoping for another healthy, beautiful little girl! I have had a healthy, boring, text book pregnancy. The end IS in sight...I mean, you can't be pregnant forever, right?? haha! And, most importantly, in a couple of weeks, the newest addition to the family will be here, surrounded by loved ones!
