wow kimberly, i can't believe you're home already! welcome back! congrats again
so i have to open mouth, insert foot about my earlier comment about not being mean...today i've felt like the li'l girl on firestarter
, only nothing blows up around me, my temper is the only thing blowing
i just can't shake this grumpiness today...and when i'm not grumpy today, i've been sobbing relentlessly...sigh, my hormones have never been this bad during pg! i'm thinking i may ask dr on the 28th about going back on my wellbutrin...i'd weaned myself off before i found out i was pg and i hate taking any meds while pg, but i feel so out of control and miserable right now. my poor dh keeps asking if i'm ok and bless his heart, he's recovering from his vas still - he needs sympathies/pampering too, but i feel like a snot right now.
i read a really touching thing on an aol board today about enjoy those last moments of pg, but i'm having a really hard time today not just wishing it was over already regardless of how true it is...
"These last few days (moments?) with your sweet baby floating around inside should be cherished. Pregnancy is the only time in our lives that we get to assist God first hand with a miracle. Being able to carry a sweet little baby inside our belly until he/she is mature enough to emerge safely to the big scary world is such a privelege. Protect that little one as long as you can.
Just think--- 40 weeks ago, your baby was just a "twinkle in your eye", and then because of the love between you & your husband, God blessed you with a precious little soul. Two tiny, microscopic pieces of you & Dh combined to form the spirit, mind & body of a little person who might one day be the next Billy Graham, or the one who finds the cure to cancer, the one who leads our country into battle & fights with honor for the country he/she represents. Maybe the next Christian president who brings glory & honor to both his earthly & heavenly fathers. Perhaps the one who discovers the next major scientific breakthrough.......................
As you approach the next few days (hours?), keep in mind that this will be the last time you experience the pressing of a little foot against your uterine wall, the last time you feel hiccups from within that aren't YOURS, the last time you will sense the urgency of your little one to come OUT! These will be your last contractions of labor, the exhilaration of knowing that each little twinge brings you one step closer to meeting your little angel. This will be the last time you feel a child slip out of your body & be placed to your breast. This will be the last time that your husband's arms will encircle you while you labor, the last time he can lean in & whisper to you how much he loves you while you push your child out..... the last time you'll feel that special romantic pull between a laboring mommy & daddy.
While I know the torturous agony of being past-due, relish in these last few days (hours!!) and enjoy the special "sisterhood" of pregnancy & birth one last time. Just like the speed with which our children grow, pregnancy & birth passes all too quickly." - Liz
