AHHH, how much longer must this go on. Well about 6-10 weeks but does it have to feel like an eternity!!!!!! My dh is determined to wait untill after the new year so we will have our deductible met at the start of the year. Gee honey, thanks for thinking about ME!
: ( I am due Dec. 25) I am so sick of being pregnant. I know I shouldn't complain, that there are thousands of women who would trade places with me in a minute but I really don't enjoy this. i think I must be the only person on the planet who would rather spend six months in labor than be pregnant. I find labopr quite enjoyable. It is like seeing the finish line at the end of a marathon. Woo-hoo, done!!!
I drove to TX last week. What a stupid idea. 14 hours in a car with a 5 and 2 year old to spend a week with my mother. What was I thinking. Nothing about that seems pleasent. And it wasn't. It sucked. The whole 5 days. By the time I got home I was having painful frequent contractions. They have mostly stopped now. I am still a little worried about them. I hate overreacting about stuff but on the other hand I did completely miss preterm labor with dd#1 and we knew it would happen sooner or later and were just waiting for it. So I am clueless more or less. My midwife offered to check and see if the contractions were doing anything but I opted not to. (she didn't care either way). Would you be checked? Am I being to laid back and ignoring stuff? I generally walk a very fine line between not being overly concerned and not being a complete hypocondriac freak.
And oh, we got an early witner this tear. There is snow and ice everywhere - perfect for the amazing large women who can't see where she is stepping and wouldn't be able to get up if she fell. Perhaps I should get one of those "Help I've fallen and can't get up things." he he!
The biggest problem by far though is that I can't zip my coat. Did any of you buy a maternity coat? None of my previous preg required a coat when I was at the peak of gestation. I was either done with a coat by the time I really started getting big or had had the baby by the time it started getting cold. I can't really justify spending $75 on a coat I will wear for a few weeks. Any suggestions for staying warm. If I just stay home I will go crazy counting the minutes untill this baby comes out.
So how is everyone else doing
. I know I am gonna get really bummed when january rolls around an I am the only one still preg. but hey good luck to all of you. Are your ready? I still have a few things to do befoe the baby gets here. For instance this desk really needs to not be here. and the changing table needs to be fixed and painted. Is it OK to paint a little whilke preg? I guess I painted the whole freaking house when I was preg. with Lily but now i worry.
Thanks. as always, for letting me vent a little. I am feeling much better. Gotta run. time for trick or treating.
