Over it

So, everything I said in my last post? About how pregnancy is so fun and fleeting? How if you blink, you'll miss it? NEWSFLASH: I am SO OVER IT. I changed my mind. I don't want to 'do anything' but have a baby. Not because I have a huge laundry list of complaints, but because I am ready to meet her. (WARNING: THIS POST IS FULL OF EXCESS USE OF THE CAPS LOCK. You have been warned.) 

I am ready to snuggle and smell my newborn.

I am ready to have Matt home for 5 weeks.

I am ready to nurse for hours on end.

I am ready to use all my diapers and pink clothes.

I am ready. I am done being pregnant. I have cleaned every drawer, corner, and closet in my house. I am done analyzing every single kick, movement, and bathroom break. I am done with having nothing to wear. I am done taking substitute jobs. I am done feeling anxious. It doesn't help that I can't call any of my family or friends. "Is it time yet? What's the status? When is that baby coming?"  WHAT DO YOU THINK, SHERLOCK?

I know the fun is in the anticipation but really, come on. We're all bored.

Over it
 
On Tuesday, I learned that I am ONLY dilated to a measly 1 cm and 50% effaced. Jen, the nurse practitioner, was also concerned because (as usual) I am measuring small and I lost two lbs. (Who's to complain?!)  So I consented to a sonogram. I mean, why not? I am a shame to the natural movement as it is. MIGHT AS WELL INDUCE. (I kid. I kid.)

So baby girl is estimated to be 7 lbs, 3 oz with plenty of fluid. Placenta looks fine. Head is down and she is measuring 38 weeks, 2 days.

In other words, SHE'S JUST HANGING OUT. NOT GOING ANYWHERE, ANYTIME SOON.
