I have hit the brick wall today. I am ready to be done. Yesterday I was really excited because I really thought that was it. Today not so much. No contractions since 9:00 last night. I am so exhausted and I slept almost 10 hrs. What is going on here?
I am pretty sure he dropped last night so that is some progress. I was having pretty good contractions during and after our walk, but then they stopped. It did get us motivated to pack our bags though. Except for a few last minute things we are good to go.
I tried really hard during this pregnancy not to complain or say anything bad about being pregnant. I know after so long of trying and waiting I wanted to enjoy the pregnancy. I didn’t want to be whiny or complain about the mundane stuff. Even the morning sickness I was ok with because that meant he was still growing nice and strong in the womb. I always hard a hard time with the women who constantly complained about something with their pregnancies and about being miserable and wanting to be done. It hurt to have to listen or read that and know that I would have given anything for that feeling. Now I understand though. The end of this miracle journey SUCKS!!!!! I am tired, my hips hurt, my feet are always swollen up to cankles, I can’t do anything that I want to, I want to be done working, I am tired of waiting for labor to start up for real, contractions are a bitch, I hate when he head butts my cervix and I want to see Cletus!!! I am just crabby today. Rant over.
