So, I'm right on the cusp of the May and June DDCs, but I've felt since day one that this baby will be born in May, so I tend to put myself over here...
Still, now that it is May, I'm beginning to wonder if I'm ever going to have this kid. I started with the very serious, very regular, very uncomfortable "false" labor contractions...they would last anywhere from 10 to 14 hours at a time, coming just about every other day...I'm about 2 cm dilated, but nothing else is really going on, just these totally uncomfortable contractions.
Anyway, I was very excited for the first week of this stuff thinking that I would have the baby soon (my babies are typically early), but by the end of the second week, I'd given up hope and have tried to convince myself that it's ok if I'm pregnant until Christmas.
But I'm feeling very impatient and very anxious and also, get this, very bored.
Since August 2005 (until now), I've been pregnant for a total of almost 17 months. I was pregnant this time last year (miscarried shortly after Mother's Day). I've been pregnant A LOT...and it is frustrating that with all this being pregnant, there is still no baby.
On top of that, I am pretty much house-bound and limited on activity. If I'm on my feet for more than 10 minutes, my ankles swell to gigantic proportions and they hurt so bad...plus they don't go back down to normal size for two days, at least. So, this means no shopping, no walking, cleaning the house in short bursts, so on and on...
Medically, I'm fine, but I'm just supposed to be "taking it easy".
I'm bored. I'm tired of being pregnant. I'm ready for my baby. And my husband is sick of my whining (although he'd never say so).
