I’m posting my update my later than usual–did you think I was having the baby? No such luck. What kept me from posting was not giving birth, but just a busy, non-stop kind of day. I’m still pregnant as ever, as you can see.
How I’m Feeling
The obvious answer is very, very pregnant. You’ve heard people say to really pregnant women that they look “ready to pop”? That’s how I feel–like I’m going to pop any minute.
Other than the obvious, each day brings something different. I had a few nights of terrible sleep, and the next days were awful because I was so tired. Then I had a decent night’s sleep and felt much better. I don’t think I have the same energy level that I had last week, but I can’t say I am completely miserable either. I’m hanging in there.
What’s Happening with my Body
My weekly doctor’s appointment was anti-climatic. I somehow lost 2 pounds this week, though, putting my total weight gain at 29 pounds. Other than that, all signs are pointing to go. I have remained dilated to 3 cm for 2 weeks now. I have contractions daily. The baby seems to have dropped quite low. It feels like he could come out at any time. I’m just waiting.
We are still praying that he decides to come either this weekend or Tuesday so we can have my regular doctor. It is weird to think I could have another child so soon, though! You’d think after having one it wouldn’t feel so foreign, but it’s still hard for me to wrap my head around bringing another baby home.
