And then there were none....

As if someone has flipped the off switch on my body, the contractions have stopped. Turns out Avorie's little girl has done the same to her. How about this? Avorie, my son challenges your daughter to a dual... who can exit first? :) Maybe if we motivate them to "head out" by racing one another, they might get things moving again. What do ya say!? :)

My nerves are seriously frayed, y'all. It's one thing to have contractions and go into labor. It's another to have contractions that go nowhere... when you want them to go into labor. I feel excited everytime I contract, like maybe tonight will be the night... and yet, a little guilty for wishing my son to be born earlier than 37 weeks. I don't think this makes me a bad mother (although I feel like it sometimes), but I think it's more indicative of my feelings on being pregnant. I'm TIRED of it. There are things I can do when I'm not pregnant... normal things... like BEND OVER!!! SLEEP!!! CUDDLE!!! all that and much much more. I joked around with Forrest last night that I wanted to go walking, but we ended up just hanging out, with me occasionally standing up and jumping up and down screaming, "GET OUT! GET OUT! GET OUT! GET OUT!" hahahaha... just kidding about the screaming, although that'd make for some funny blog material. I did occasionally whisper to Shepherd that if he came out, I'd give him a cookie. Which of course, doesn't work, because he's getting his cookies now. As I eat them, he's enjoying them, so that bribe didn't work too well either. I really hope that Shepherd realizes that the Super Bowl is next weekend, and if he'd like to see it, he'd better start heading out so he's not stuck in a grubby hospital room to watch the Steelers kill the Seahawks. We'll see....

I have to have my husband put on my socks now...I can't bend over! Yesterday he had to take a splinter out of my foot.


Let me know if you want to exchange links fellow preggie!

I still can't believe I went on bedrest to stop having contractions at 35 weeks, and now almost 39 weeks I'm having hardly any!! So my advice to you is to keep em coming, walk, have sex, eat spicy food, take evening primrose oil, drink rasberry tea leaves - just don't let them stop!!

Oh...who's gonna win?!!

(and I know what you mean about the lack of cuddles. I miss being able to snuggle close to The King!)

I remember when I was about as pregnant as you are now and I felt the same way you do. TIRED of being pg, READY for this baby to come.

And then a whole new series of events will begin to deprive you of your sleep and comfort. ;)

Oh yeah -- GET OUT! is exactly how I feel. And I feel guilty looking down at my belly and semi-jokingly-shouting it.
