No News!

Not much to report here, except that I am more miserably miserable.  Sorry to those who I haven't gotten back to yet...I am a lump on a log who lays everywhere and sleeps every minute I can. 

I have decided that exerting myself in hopes of inducing labor only seems to wear me out and cause contractions at night that keep me up and don't go anywhere.  I had some last night after walking around and around our ghetto WalMart, and they seemed to be progressing, but then no dice.  I haven't had any since I got up this morning.  And let me tell you that it was extremely difficult to get up this morning, since I was up at 6am.  Braden gave me a blessing of comfort, which was sorely needed.  I actually asked for it when I thought today might be the day, but it's looking like that's not going to be the case.  I have to say, Katie is probably pretty uncomfortable, too.  I mean, there's just no more room, and it leads to her trying to stretch, thus making me more uncomfortable.  There is really no position that I can get into that is comfortable for me.  I can't even be at the computer for very long, because my back hurts so badly.

I'm thinking that any pregnancy posts from here on out (just like recent ones) are going to be pretty depressing.  Sorry.  I'm so done with being big and luggy.

I feel your pain. I had several nights like that with Amy, and it was awful all day because I still had to be awake and alert and take care of business. Just remember...it won't be long now. Can someone take over for you at church so you can just lay on the couch all day?

I'm so sorry for your Kerry! Seeing as I'm only a week behind you in my pregnancy, I certainly understand where you're coming from. At this point pregnancy pretty much wears out its welcome! Having had 4 previous inductions, I have absolutely no hope of starting labor on my own. In fact, even though my due date is 2 weeks away, I keep telling myself, "Just 3 more weeks tops!" I don't even think in terms of my due date, but instead a week after that. It saves me from disappointment. And yet, I'm still, so uncomfortable.
Good luck Kerry!

Hey thanks, Gina and Carolyn! It's nice to know I'm not alone. I know we all go through this at the end of pregnancy, but it's the worst!
