I am now 38 weeks, 4 days pregnant and am DONE! The thing is, I don't know why I feel like this. Physically, I don't feel terrible. I still sleep well, I eat well, I can walk and still do everything. I chase after my toddler and clean my house and take care of my 8 year old....why do I feel so ready to have this baby out? Is it just the excitement that I'm having trouble being patient for? We don't know the gender of the baby, and I am anxious to find out. I know that once the baby comes I'm going to have a lot more work on my hands, so you'd think that it'd deter me from wanting to rush things along! The only reason I can come up with is that I just want to hold my baby and share him/her with the rest of the family! My cervix is super soft, baby is at Zero station...but I'm not dilated at all...It's a toss up as to when this little one will come! My daughter came at 37 weeks, my son came at 40 weeks, 4 days....there is just no predicting! Is there anyone out there who knows that it is silly to want to be done so soon, yet can't control themselves from wanting labor to come ASAP? I've been doing all the silly things that I know don't work...spicy food, raspberry leaf tea, swallowing evening primrose oil, sex, walking, bouncing on a birth ball, twiddling my nipples....I think those are just good distractions and time fillers than actually doing anything! Aaagh! I can't help myself...I will pray before I go to bed that this is the night I wake up in labor....Lol.
