baby news... or not
Well, yesterday I had my last ultrasound. I am at 39 weeks today and have 1 week until I reach "full-term" (aka ready to pop - status). My last two actually came at 41 weeks. Paige came on her own, while James had to be yanked out. I think this one might be a yanker. The Dr. did reassure me that they won't let me go longer then 40 & 1/2 weeks - so 10 days right? Can I be patient? Can I be rational? Will I cry every day until that day comes? Do I have a choice? Not really, right. I need to just suck it up and ride out this storm. It's amazing how much you body changes over the years and how each pregnancy is so different. I wasn't as emotional or had as many mood swings with the other 2 at the end. I've also gained almost 18lbs. with this one, where I gained 25-ish with James & probably 35-ish with Paige. They said the baby is really healthy and weighs about 6lbs 14oz. (which means no induction this weekend)... oh well, there is always stuff I need to be doing. I have a ton of sewing to do and my front lawn really needs mowing - but the question is if I can get it done without my little old neighbor lady coming out to remind me I'm 9 months pregnant. It's a little hard to forget at this point. If I have one request from you, it's to pray that I can be patient (I used to ask everyone to pray for my cervix, but that's probably a little over the top).
