Almost here!

So I am getting really close now. I am 37 weeks and I can't believe it. I hope he comes soon. I am so miserable. My feet and ankles are so swollen and I can't sleep very well anymore. I have crazy dreams and have to pee at least once every hour. (This has been going on for awhile, but it just gets worse the farther along I am.) I can't wait to see what he looks like. We have everything we need now and are totally ready. We have my hospital bag packed and the car seat installed. We moved into a smaller apartment to save money since I will be on maternity leave and then only coming back to work part time. Today is my last day of work. Part of me is so excited to be done and be able to take naps every day until he comes. The other part of me is worried that I will be bored and will go crazy waiting for the baby. I know I need to just enjoy this time and sleep as much as I can, but it will be weird not working anymore. I really enjoy my job. I like everyone I work with. They have been so nice and supportive. My bosses got me flowers and gift cards to Red Lobster and Sam's Club. The girls also got me flowers, balloons, and made lunch. I am really going to miss my co-workers, but I will be back. I can't wait to be a mom! It will be the best job I could ever have! I am super excited! Trying to find ways to send myself into labor!

haha, I did the same thing, but nothing worked for me, you just have to wait. My husband actually told me he heard if you walk on the sidewalk with one foot on the curb and the other on the road that it would cause me to go into labor, ya didn't work. These days will be the longest of the whole pregnancy, but the wait is worth it. Good Luck!

Have lots of sex and go for long walks every day. I ate spicy foods (which gave me awful heartburn) and drank tons of raspberry leaf tea. I don't know if any of it helped but it was fun to be getting busy all the time. That sort of stops for about six weeks as you are exhausted all the time.
