The end is near!

On Monday I had my now weekly OB appointment, and was informed that the kiddo will be making her appearance no later than my due date of August 9th because of the gestational diabetes. I'm terrified. Who thought this was a good idea?

As much as I'm terrified at the prospect of the end being firmly in sight, I'm also ready to be done with being pregnant. The pressure and ache in my pelvis is sometimes unbearable, especially first thing in the morning. It literally pains me to go from laying to standing, and takes me a minute or two to actually take a step once I get myself upright. As the day wears on it seems I feel less pressure, which makes no sense to me, but I guess it is what it is.

Wow, your pregnancy has flown by (to me, at least... might seem longer to someone who's actually living it). I can't believe we're less than a month from when you'll meet your little one. I'm still utterly thrilled for you!

OK, you're getting awfully close to your EDD, and I know you've been on your computer (thank you for the comments- it's always nice to hear from you!). How are you and your munchkin? Just wanted to check in and let you know I hope all is well and you're loving the last bit of your pregnancy. I'm excited!

Thanks, B! I know I've been bad at updating here, because there's nothing new to report!

I'm sooooo ready to be done! I feel bad saying that after waiting so long to be here, but really, I'm d-o-n-e. I have numb toes, I can't stand in one spot for very long, I can't walk fast, I can't breath! But... I wouldn't change it for the world, and I'd do it all over again.

We find out tomorrow night when I'll be induced. I'm not thrilled about being induced, but it is what it is.

You keep hanging in there, too!
