{Baby 4} 38 weeks pregnant & over it…

I am 38 weeks, actually going on 39 weeks. And today I woke up just feeling so over it. It’s taken me longer than any other pregnancy to start running out of patience, but today I quit. I am weary of people asking me if I’ve had this baby “yet” when I’m not even to my due date. It seems as if most people don’t realize that a due date is just an estimate.

So today I’m thankful for the small mercies…

  • Waking up to find that my husband carried up a load of laundry for me (going to the basement for laundry is like a death sentence at this point).
  • Tomorrow starts my husband’s three day weekend off, so I’ll be able to rest and have help during the day. 
  • My sweet 5 1/2 year old is able to get cereal into bowls for himself and his siblings. 
  • Going an entire hour without having to pee!
My 37 and 38 week appointments went very well. At my 37 week appointment, my midwife dropped off the birthing kit and the tub. That was when I realized that we were finally nearing the end of this pregnancy. Everything checked out well at both appointments. Baby is head down as well. It’s just basically time for us all wait for baby to finish baking and make her appearance into the world.
