1 More Week?
I had some contractions during the night last night...last pregnancy was the first time I experienced actual "contractions" and thought I was going into labor...now I know that's not necessarily true. I've had a few nights where I have them, they're uncomfortable and then they fizzle. With my last pregnancy, this didn't occur until I was well overdue though, am I crazy to get my hopes up? I'm 1 week from my due date and already feel like I'm "overdue". I'm so ready to get on with life!!! My mom asked me, "Have you had a burst of energy yet??" Mom...I have a 13 month old and a 25 month old, I don't know what energy is!!! Heartburn has kicked into full gear and yesterday I had some swelling. It seems to be better today, I'm not sure why that would happen spontaneously, especially since I haven't had any this entire pregnancy. My parents took the big 3 children home with them for the week. Although I miss them, it sure is nice to have some more quiet in the home...and my husband and I discovered last time they were gone that they are the ones that are the mess makers around here...so it'll be nice to get some cleaning/packing/organizing done and have it stay that way for a while. My husband is also off of work for the week, so it'll be wonderful to have help around here. Now, if we can find some things to do to pass the time so I don't have to think about being pregnant. Have I mentioned I'm not a fan of the last couple of weeks of pregnancy??
