38 Weeks: It's Getting to Be "That Time"

Oh lordy, the nights have gotten to be bad news bears.  Everything hurts more at night, and that's not just when you are pregnant.  I spent from 2 AM to 5:30 AM last night up and laying on the couch, using a stopwatch to monitor contractions .... and dealing with nausea... working up a sweat trying to determine if I should wake up Jamie and have us jump in the car.   Unfortunately, the end result was just a loss of sleep (which is the last thing I need!) and no baby! 

Now, had I not been so tired and if it hadn't been storming, I might have insisted we head to the hospital since I know they would keep me and eventually get this baby out.  If tonight goes the same as last night, that might just be the case!

I know (believe me!) that's it is much easier to take care of this little bugger while he is in my tummy, but between the night-time contractions and bathroom trips, I am just ready to get this party started, because I'm already not sleeping well!  Why not at least have a cute baby to show for it!  Grrr!

Sunday night, I got so desperate to get something started, I had Jamie buy me a Volcano Taco from Taco Bell and then I went for a walk/jog around the block - at 11 PM!!  Still nothing.  Hmmmm....

I'll keep you posted!  If nothing happens naturally before next week, Monday is the big day!  Thanks for stopping by!

38 Weeks (T-Minus 7 Days!)

If you are having real contractions, i would bet you are getting CLOSE!! I was feeling the same, two days before my water broke. I also walked my block a few timse, to try and get things "going"--haha. I think you are days from having your baby!!!!! Best of luck!!!
