Early Is On Time, On Time Is Late!

Thank you so much for all the positive feedback on our baby name!! We love it too! :) It's been nice to not get any negative comments about it. Nobody likes having someone stomp all over something they are happy about, am I right? So, once again, thank you all for being so sweet and supportive!

At this point, I am literally either on the couch or in bed for the most part. It hurts to move. I can barely get up from a sitting/laying position and walking is pretty much impossible without feeling like my hoo-hoo is going to split in two. (TMI? Sorry! But, not really because I'm the one who has to deal with it!) Therefore, sitting/laying is the most comfortable. Reclining my feet helps keep the swelling to a minimum. The last couple of days have been especially hard. Not only does my body feel just plain old done, but baby girl has apparently decided to let me know she is tired of being cramped up in there. She's been adamantly kicking and stretching, probably trying to get comfy. I told Michael he should shine a light in there to show her the way out. Kidding! Kind of.

We had an appointment with my midwife on Friday and she said I'm still about 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced. Here's to hoping she "sees the light" sooner rather than later! 3 weeks until my due date and I don't think I will be able to keep my sanity if she waits until then! As my junior high choir instructor would always say, "Early is on time, on time is late!"

I hope she comes soon for you! I can't imagine how hard the last couple of weeks are. If it helps at all...and I know you know this... but just remember how great it is for your sweet Emily. And once she's here the last few days of being pregnant and miserable will seem like just a fleeting moment. I promise. And I'm not preaching. You know that. :)

Hahaha my friend used to always say that she felt like her vagina was ripping in two too. LOL so funny. I can't imagine! I hope that even if she waits until the last minute, that your yoohoo can get some relief lol
