In Case You're Wondering

Just thought I'd let you baby yet. That's all, I'm too exhausted to write much more. It seems I am doomed to eternal contractions that are painful enough to keep me from sleeping but not enough to bring the little girl here.

As I lay in bed trying to fall asleep last night, Jarom rubbed my back and sarcastically said, "Don't worry...only a few more days." In case you didn't know, days feel like years to a pregnant woman past the 39th week. I didn't know whether to laugh, cry, or punch him!

So I smiled (sort of) behind the tears.

That'll teach me to cry wolf.

Oh Erika. I'm so so so so so sorry. I was very much overdue with both my girls but I didn't have early contractions. That must be awful. I hope they either go away or your little princess comes - soon! You are right every single day seems like an eternity at that point. It's not really very comforting but the only thing I could think was, "It may not feel like it but this really will end." Good luck! You are awesome - you can do it!

I feel for you!!! Let me know if there is anything that I can do. I am trying to keep my schedule open just in case anything real happens, but I also don't want to call you in case you are catching up on all the sleep you are missing at night, so please let me know what I can help with.

That's frustrating, I'm sorry Erika! Hang in there. She really is coming, and then you'll be so busy and tired for different reasons, you'll forget you were so anxious for this day to come (but happy it finally did!)

I am sorry that you are so uncomfortable! Hopefully she decides to come soon. Good luck with the delivery!

Poor baby. And I mean you, not the actual baby. She's all snug and safe and having a wonderful time.

Hope you pop soon. :)
