Okay, I think I've been pretty easy going most of this pregnancy. But the novelty wore off a LONG time ago and I just want to complain.
1.) I get more and more jealous each time another mama posts that she had her baby. Damn it, why not me!?
2.) Why won't this kid drop? What do I have to do to make it happen? When Mom had me, I NEVER dropped and she ended up having a c/s...what if that happens to me?
3.) And once and for all, would someone tell me what it MEANS to drop?! I mean, am I going to get up some morning and suddenly my stomach will fall? Am I going to notice this?
4.) I still really don't understand what contractions are or feel like. I'm convinced I won't know I'm in labor until my water breaks.
5.) I've been losing my mucus plug for the last 5 days or so. Last night, the bit in the toilet even seemed a bit bloody (sorry for the TMI!)...shouldn't SOMETHING have started by now?
6.) And now my lower back hurts. I keep thinking that maybe this is a good sign, but rationally I know it's probably unrelated.
7.) I'm sick and tired of explaining to people why I haven't induced, yet. I'm sick of people asking me when I'm due. I'm sick of people calling to find out if I had the kid, yet. I'm talking about close family and friends--do they REALLY think I'd forget to call them?
8.) And I'm not looking forward to telling the doctor tomorrow that I'm not going to let them induce Friday. Doctors intimidate me.
Okay. Somehow, just getting them all out makes me feel a lot better. Anyone else still here to sympahtize with me?
