Preggo Update...

I’m miserable!!! I know, it’s not normal for me to complain, but right now there’s really nothing positive about my state (other than it’s going to end in 1 ½ weeks!).

I have another doctor’s appointment today where she should give me my induction time, and we should be all set!

My boss informed me yesterday that I’m waddling. Of course I know I’m waddling! But does it have to be announced at a meeting? She also announced that my face was getting puffy. Lovely. Luckily, I know that’s her personality (as does everyone else) and she really means well. At least now she told me I can wear flip-flops since none of my shoes were fitting because I’m swollen.

I’m not sleeping…I get up about 4 times per night to pee, and then I also wake up about 2 other times just to change positions. I get home and am absolutely drained. It doesn’t help that hubby is super busy at work and hasn’t gotten home until 7:30 and 8:30 the last two nights.

I’ve totally checked out of work. I feel bad, but my head and heart are just not into working. I’m more concerned with trying to keep myself from falling asleep or making up a plan to steal pitocin from a hospital to get this baby out on my own.

Yesterday I actually was productive (personally of course…remember, work is not on my mind!). I ordered a few shirts to wear after I have the baby, along with a few pieces of winter clothing for the kids. I also ordered the new bumper for the crib. And I made my manicure and pedicure appointments for the day before I have the baby. See? I got a lot done :)

So that’s where I’m at. I’m ready. But at the same time, I’m a little sad when I think about the fact that this weekend is the last weekend for our currently little family. My kids have no idea how life is going to change for them (this would be the benefit to having kids close together and young…my daughter is so set in her routine that this is really going to shake her up!). This is our last weekend as a family of four.

I can’t believe how fast the past 37 weeks have gone by!

Oh sorry you are so miserable. I am glad you are going to the doctor today though. The swollen feet and puffiness in your face, mm were you like that for your first two? I will feel better after you post how your appt went.
Yes it's your last weekend being a family of four, but next weekend will be your FIRST for a family of five and the start of a new life to help along. Look at your first two and see all they have done for you and for themselves, now think another one to do the same thing. A fantastic family of five!!!!!

I am thinking good thoughts for you. I'm sorry everything seems so miserable right now! I can't wait to hear about/see your baby. I bet your kids will adjust just fine to it all. You are such a loving mom, such a loving family that everything will be great I am sure.

Hooray for flip flops for pregnant feet! I remember feeling the same little bit of sad before my #2 was born knowing things would never be the same, but now I wouldn't have it any other way. Your kids sound like they will bounce back in no time! Can't wait to hear if you have a boy or girl!!
