Six More Days!

We went to the doctor yesterday and the most exciting thing for a pregnant woman happened. My doctor asked if I wanted to deliver one day sooner. Now, for those of you who are not pregnant now, maybe you've forgotten how crappy these last two weeks are. I'm miserable. I wake up every night between 2:00 and 3:00am because my back is killing me. I decide that turning over might help. So I try to turn over, but then I remember that I have to heft the 30 extra pounds I have in front of me over as well. Not too easy at that time in the morning. Then, when I finally get turned over, I realize that if I move even a little bit, I'm going to pee all over the bed. So then I have to heft myself and my stomach out of bed and walk as fast as I can to the bathroom while still squeezing to make sure I don't leak. When I get back to bed, I repeat the turning process over and over again until my alarm goes off. So, when the doctor said I could deliver one day sooner, I almost jumped over his desk and kissed him. But I decided against it when I thought I might have to pee again. See you on April 6th Benjamin!!!!
