I'm down to the final month! I can't even believe it... time has went by so quickly. I should have a baby in my arms next month at this time... but I may not. It'll be anywhere from 2-6wks and he will be arriving.I have a fear of going 2 weeks past my due date, being induced and ending up with a c-section after a long painful attempt at labor & delivery. I shouldn't think so negatively but that is my fear.My baby shower was nice. The baby got a lot of cute things. I had a good time, I'll post a picture or 2 from it. (Not sure that I will post any of myself b'cuz i look horrrrrible in all of them)Physically: I am doing alright. A lot better then some other woman that are due around the same time as me. They complain all the time and I'm not sure that I'm as miserable as they have been. I don't have much swelling but after a long day on my feet I do notice slight swelling in my feet/ankles. I have already gained more weight then I would of liked to this entire pregnancy, but I'm not going to worry about that until after the baby is born. The lower part of my belly is getting really itchy and starting to hurt. I think the stretch marks are starting to show their ugly face. I get up several times a night to pee. I'm always thirsty and constantly have a bottle of ice water with me. Walking is a task and somedays I feel as though my hip joints need oiled up. I don't feel the baby move near as much anymore (I think he is running out of room) although I often feel a foot poking out of my side and have to rub it until he stops poking it out. Emotionally: I'm ready for this baby to be born. I'm anxious to meet him. I can't wait to hold him in my arms and just stare at him. I often wonder what he is going to look like. A lot of things in my life aren't going as smoothly as I would like but I'm trying to make the best of it and stay optimistic about the arrival of my lil boy. I already have more love for him then I could possibly have for anyone. I'm ready to meet ya lil guy!! I think its time I get done packing my bags for the hospital... He may come any day now. (More then likely it won't be for atleast 2 more weeks, maybe not for 6) I like to be prepared for anything.
