I am so ready for this to be done with, I am not going to lie. ha. Then again, I think I was ready for this to all be over with the moment I took a positive pregnancy test. I can barely turn myself over in bed. My pelvic region hurts something viscious. I cannot WAIT to be able to sleep normally. Not that I will be getting much sleep once baby comes... ha ha ha. So maybe I should just suck it up.
Doctor appointment was today: Not much to speak of. I gained 4 lbs ha ha ha. 170.6 lbs ha ha ha! All I can do is laugh and just remember, I put it on, I can take it off. ha ha ha. Weight aside, my doctor told me jokingly to go into labor this weekend because he is on call. I WISH! I am such a 40 weeker though, it's highly unlikely. Oh well. Avery will come out when she is ready, but I am full term.
I have also started natural induction methods ha ha ha. You know, the induction methods that don't work unless your body is ready to labor ha. Like, I went and bought a container of fresh cut up pineapple from the grocery store and ate the whole thing. I am going to have spicy chinese food tomorrow night. It's all in good fun. It also helps pass the time in these last few weeks. I plan on trying a few other things... don't worry, I have my limits. I am not a Castor Oil type girl. I would rather go to 40 weeks than drink that stuff. BLECH! I also can't use Evening Primrose Oil because my doctor doesn't like it. At 39 weeks, I am going to have Dave massage some pressure points that are said to induce labor. This baby is big though. No doubt. Anyway... that's the pregnancy update.
One thing that is making me suspicious that MAYBE labor is close is the fact that out of nowhere my feet and hands have swollen and I have started sweating a lot at night (TMI)... This happened shortly before I went into labor with Lindsey. We will see. I want her to come when she is good and ready and can do everything on her own and come home with me. Matter of fact, that is my prayer "Dear God, as soon as Avery is able to make it and function on her own, then please let me go into labor!" ha ha ha. If that's 40 weeks... so be it.
Update on starting school back up: Bet you thought I wasn't really going to go through with it ha! Ok. I have ALWAYS struggled with math... but if I have the right teacher I can usually pull off a decent grade. I took the compass test this past Saturday and I scored REALLY high in English. I know a lot of people probably read my blog and think, with all the grammar mistakes she makes on her blog, I don't know how that happened. Actually, I am quite proficient at English and Grammar. I do get lazy with my blog. Most of the time I really don't feel like going through my posts to make sure I am not being redundant or putting punctuation where it should be. A lot of the time I will be satisfied with the extremely lazy "..."
Math... well, no shock here, I pretty much suck at it. I can't do an algebra equation to save my life... LITERALLY! If my life were on the line and the only way I could save it would be to do an algebra problem and get it correct, I really wouldn't be able to save my own life. ha ha ha. Hopefully I can pick it up quick and do well though.
All I have left is to get some financial aid things squared away and then schedule my classes. I am a crazy ball of mixed emotions. I am an immediate results type person so the fact that I am embarking on a 4 year journey of bettering myself... it's going to drive me crazy, but I'm excited.
