So here I sit, 39 weeks and 2 days pregnant, with my elephant-like feet, ankles and legs ( She better come soon cause if this swelling keeps moving upward we could be in serious trouble!! :) I had all these grand plans of self induction starting once I hit 37 weeks. Yeah, that lasted till my first appointment with Kim, when I had ZERO progress and probably less symptoms than the week before. I read blogs and message boards about other girls who are trying desperately to start labor, using all their energy to walk 50 miles and day, eat 2 whole pineapples, choke down cod liver oil...it's exhausting just thinking about all that! Though I may feel differently when I'm still here staring down at 42 weeks and induction, for now I am trying to relax, rest and trust God that He has a plan for me and for Lola.
It's hard to imagine how drastically life is about to change. Although I thought the same thing before I was married and moved half way across the country and now I really can't fathom anything else. It's crazy to watch her move around in there and to wonder what she looks like and what she is doing exactly. At the most, only 2 weeks and 5 days till I find out the answers to all the questions I've been wondering since August.
I had a lot of braxton hicks contractions yesterday night. I have been getting a few here and there, but last night I could actually feel them and they were pretty frequent. But after resting for the night, I haven't had any, so it's a crazy process!
I see Kim on Monday again, hopefully to here some good news on my progress, although anything except "Push now!" doesn't really mean a whole lot :)
