Un.Im.Pressed.

That's right, I'm unimpressed. I'm not going to candy coat this people, I'm cheesed off! Oh yes... I said it! Cheesed off! Perturbed! To heck with this!

So, I'm 4 days away from my due date and although they have been saying forever that they thought I would go early, it now appears I will not. Now, 3 days before my due date my cervix is doing nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. It's going "Baby? What baby?" NO contractions (until tonight) for TWO DAYS! I feel like I'm going to lose my mind! The kid is huge! Her head is dropped! I went into preterm labor at 33 weeks, but now that I'm at the end she doesn't want to come out!

Seriously, what...the...french...toast is going on here?

GeneviƩve Felice, this is your mother speaking! This is no time to play the cool kid! You don't have to show up late to your own birthday party for everyone to know how great you are!

39 Weeks

Hi all... 7 days until my due date, but my belly feels like it's about to explode. I've given our little bambina an eviction notice, but clearly she is ignoring it! Not much to say, we're still just waiting, waiting, waiting!

38 Weeks

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn I am sleepy! I am overly tired but cannot seem to ever get comfortable enough to actually sleep. We went to the doctor on friday... he said that she is a very, very active baby, somaybe she'll be a hockey player like her dadwink. She is measuring about 7.25 pounds eek and I am now on partial bed rest (which, by the way, is royally boring).

I don't think she is ever, ever coming out.

Ever.

I am going to be pregnant for-ev-er.

le sigh.

Okay people, we're officially full term and I am ready to go. The nursery is done, the bags are packed and now we're just waiting on the little one. I.Am.Ready.

Did I also mention I'm fidgety and impatient?

Maternity Leave

I am starting my maternity leave tomorrow. My due date is 3 and half weeks from now, but the stress, anxiety and strain from work is really adding to my already horrendous pain. It was really too much for me at this point so my doctor said I should start my leave ASAP and stay off my feet.

36 Weeks

So we went to our 35 week appointment this week and they're pretty sure I'm going to go early. They estimate that she weighs about 6.5 pounds at this point and that her head is way down already. They also think that we are spine-to-spine, which causes a lot of pain in my back, but our birthing coach showed me some stuff to do to get her to try to turn. Friday I REALLY thought I was going to go into labor because I was having so many contractions and was in so much back pain and discomfort but none of them were a consistent amount of time apart.

We had Kerri's shower today! Fun times! Gotta love having several preggos in 1 room... BTW, when the hell did I get fat in the face during this pregnancy. Not impressed, not impressed at all!
