Week 38

Well, here we are again. Another week has past and I am STILL pregnant. My appointment went well this morning. My blood pressure was really good 110/70. I measured on target and Sadie Beth's heart rate was in the high 130's and low 140's. Doc said my weight was fine but it looks like I am not gaining much from week to week. I think I am at gaining 33 lbs all together now (I gained 42 lbs with Mili). I am still dilated to almost 2 cm and 60% effaced.

I am getting quite discouraged but know that I need to wait on God's timing for this bundle of joy. I am trying to be patient but it is very hard to sleep when I am up every hour (or less) to pee and then it takes a while to get back to sleep. My back is killing me and not much relieves the pain and I am tired of not being able to bend. Mommy is missing Mili time in the floor. It is too hard for me to get up from a sitting position on the floor. I have a hard enough time getting out of the bathtub. And the waddling has become just plain ridiculous now.

I guess that is enough whining for now. I am just tired and want to hold Sadie Beth.

Thanks for listening to this pathetic post.
Love to ALL!!!!

If it helps make you feel better I think from the week to week photos that Sadie Beth looks to have dropped some. You look amazing for 38 weeks and we would never know you were tired. Praying Sadie Beth decides to be here soon!

Well HI, Alice! I was so excited to see your post on my blog. It looks like I'm not the only one whose been working on a bigger family! Congratulations, and I totally sympathize. Mandy told me you guys have moved--I'm coming your way for a conference in October! We will have to get together. Say hi to Brian for me!

As a former L & D nurse, the fact that you have dilated and effaced will help you go quicker when the time is right! I can say that it looks like she is laying low in your tummy, which is a good thing! I know you must be miserable. That second pregancy is not as fun as the first!!! Everything hurts! Hope all goes well with you, though!

Alice, it looks as though Sadie has dropped a bit, yeah progress!! Even though your tired, try walking, it might help speed things along. I feel bad your so uncomfertable, but your almost there, hang in. You look great despite how you feel. Love to you all.
