Check, please!

So.

My rope.

I think I am approaching the end of it.

Swollen feet the size of small blimps? Check.

Waking up every hour to tinkle? Check.

Complete discomfort in any chair I'm in? Check.

Constant irritability? Check.

Trouble breathing? Check.

Stomach the size of a watermelon? Check.

Wondering how I'm going to make it through these next few weeks? Check.

Desperately longing for the first few weeks in June? Check.

I. Am. Done.

(Sorry for venting - it's just been one of those weeks....)

  3. You're almost there! Sounds like things are rough right now, but just keep remembering how beautiful it is to be pregnant- even if you don't feel that way. I'm sure the next few weeks will go by fast and then little Levi will be in your arms and crummy days and weeks like these will be a distant memory!

  4. It's almost over.

    I always classify myself as an unhappy pregnant woman, but I really think I'm only remembering those last few weeks. They are the worst. But the reward is so great, my love. Levi is worth every extra ounce of water retention, but you know that!

    Praying for you!

  6. All of that will be "forgotten" once Levi is in your arms! Promise. Just keep thinking and telling yourself that! It WILL make you feel better. ;-)

  7. I'm due with little girl #2 on June 7 and I TOTALLY echo your thoughts!!! I never felt like this during my first pregnancy and I went 4 days past my due date. My baby girl's estimated weight is 7 pounds, 3 ounces, so she's going to be a big one!!

  8. Won't be long now!! I keep up with another blogger who is pregnant - you should check out her blog

    I think it would give you a laugh and you could sympathize.

  13. I look back in my journal to remember those days, because honestly, I would have another baby RIGHT NOW - except that we're not ready to just yet - but it's hard to remember once he's here :-)

  14. I know the feeling well!! You are almost there.

    I do not remember you due date but I know when I got really close and had no contractions my Dr. said that she could strip my membrane to make me go into labor. I was a weeks away and they didn't want me to go over due to high blood pressure, so my Dr. did it and three days later I had a baby.

    Ask your Dr. if he/she can do that. I know it sounds sick and yes, it kind of hurts a little, but it was a life saver cause I too was sooo over being fat, bloated and cranky!

    Good luck and hang in there!

  15. That hurts me because I can so sympathize with you. I didn't comment on your earlier blog, but I have something fun, not really advice. Pack a baby pic of you and Darin and after little Levi is born, pull them out and let all the family start comparing.

  16. OH, MAN. Do I feel your pain. I hit my low point during Week 35, too. But I seem to have rallied a bit here during Week 37. So, hang in there. Maybe you'll have a rally soon!

    And keep working on that nursery! I can't wait to see pictures!!!

  19. you're doing so great- it will be over before you know it and you'll be saying hi and looking into little levi's eyes :) relax, eat popsicles and watch daytime t.v.!

  20. Oh dear, you're done-I sense it! :)
    Soon, you will be greeting your little Levi-and I am excited to hear about it, but not as excited as you!

  21. I am right there with you. I have 7weeks to go and stick a fork in me, I'm done. Don't get me wrong, I want little one to be AT LEAST 37 weeks before she makes her debut, but I just hope it goes by quickly. My patience is waning.

  22. I know how you feel! My daughter was born last month and I have to tell you it was the most glorious feeling in the world the second she was out and I had full lung capacity again, for a few seconds all I cared about was that I could take a deep breath! It made it all worth it. (The baby did too of course;)
