I am exhausted. After days and days (weeks, really) of contractions keeping me up during the night, sleep has become a rare occurrence for me around here. Enter also severe heartburn the past few days and a general loss of appetite… as well as general malaise, and you have one tired (and admittedly: somewhat miserable) pregnant lady.
But I know the days are numbered until we get to meet our little boy. And does it ever help! 🙂 I’m still praying he’ll come on his own a little before his induction date. I admit I’m a little nervous about pitocin.
Tomorrow, if it’s not raining, my friend is going to take some maternity pictures. I’ll be one day away from 38 weeks (think– HUGE) so I guess it’s a little late in the game, but better late than never. Another friend told me that most people get their maternity pics done between 32-36 weeks. What I really want are newborn pictures so I guess getting maternity pics never entered my mind until my friend mentioned that she really wanted to take some for me (she’s a good friend). If it’s not raining and we get the pics taken, I’ll post some on here later on.
Not much else is new, other than that my older sister who lives in an extremely remote location overseas is currently at a more populated location for a few weeks. We are able to talk often through Google Voice for CHEAP! We’ll get to video skype with her too when the baby comes (which isn’t something they can do normally). So, even though she can’t be here for our son’s birth, I’m thankful that at least she’ll get to see him live.
Well, the contractions keep coming but I’m going to try to get some sleep. I really shouldn’t try to blog when I’m feeling this groggy!
