I don't think this picture shows how big I am very well, but oh well. I have very few clothes that fit me currently so this will have to do.
Anyway. My appointment was very discouraging. First of all, by not going into labor Monday, Tuesday, or even today... I missed my chance this week of having MY doctor deliver my baby. This is such a huge disappointment for me. This doctor has been my OB/gyn for nearly 11 years... since before I was having babies. He delivered both Lindsey and Brendan. I am an emotional wreck that he isn't on call for the rest of this week. The doctor that is on call, I am not so sure about, but maybe he will surprise me and not be that bad, if I do go into labor this weekend. I have heard conflicting reviews on him, but the people who like him REALLY like him. So I should probably just relax.
My due date is tomorrow. I am 100% sure of this because I am 100% sure of when my LMP was. (if you don't know what LMP is... google it)... If this little girl is anything like her big sis, she will come tomorrow sometime. If not... I am really... for once in my life, hoping that I make it through the weekend until my doctor is back on call.
So. Not much else to tell. Weight was 172... I am holding steady in that department. I am feeling LOTS of pressure in my pelvic region. Baby is getting into position I am sure.
I wanted to leave you with some positivity even if I am not feeling very positive right now.
If you are trying to start a family or even thinking about having a baby, please don't let anything that I have said discourage you! OK... every pregnancy is different and everybody handles pregnancy different. Some women love it, some hate it... I hate it... for the most part... but you could very well love it, so please... go forth and multiply. Have babies. It's so worth it. My kids bring so much light to my world and it makes every bit of this worth it. I hope to be able to follow along with some of your pregnancy blog posts soon.
As much as I claim to hate being pregnant, I want you all to know, I am over the moon excited about meeting this little girl... and I feel extremely blessed to have been able to carry three lives inside me! It's been magical as well as annoying. ha.
I have an appointment Monday if I make it through the weekend still pregnant. I will be getting an ultrasound to keep tabs on baby and make sure she is still doing ok. If not... I will have a baby update for you soon.
Thank you all for following along on this journey and if I remain pregnant a bit longer, thanks for going through overtime with me.
