Two Weeks To Go

Yes. I am still here. And I am still pregnant.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I haven't been feeling the greatest. I've had a bit of nausea this past week, mixed with a few headaches, and lots of aches and pains. My hands are really swollen and numb for the majority of my days and nights. Sleep is something I've heard about but have not experienced in quite some time. Heartburn has been ruling my life. My feet and ankles hurt and my back has been killing me. You know, the usual.

Well, actually, for me this is not usual. I have had super easy pregnancies and I don't remember being this uncomfortable for any of my others. But oh well. No big whoop. I am still trying to soak up as much as I can of this (my last) pregnancy.

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and so far I am not dilated at all. Another first for me since I am usually dilated 2 or 3 cm by this point. I guess it really is true that every pregnancy and labor are different. But because I know for a fact that you can go from no dilation to being in active labor in the blink of an eye I am still on high alert.

I also learned that my doctor will be on vacation all next week so I am guessing that baby will want to make her appearance then since my doctor has been MIA for all of my past deliveries.

So anyway, just wanted to let y'all know that I am still here. I will try to get around to visit you as soon as I can properly feel my fingers again. In the meantime, picture me waddling after my crazy boys in the park, on their bikes, at the lake, in the grocery store, at dinner time, etc. And maybe say a little prayer for me. ;)

I remember quite well my third pregnancy. I gained so much weight, went 9 days over the due day, and it was hot, hot, hot! I wouldn't trade one day of that pregnancy! We had our beautiful 2nd son, and he is the joy of the family.

Keep us posted!

imbeingheldhostage said...

Of course I will say a little prayer for you. And you have to know, I am so flipping excited and can't believe you're so close to your world turning upside-- I mean being blessed with a little girl ;-)

I am checking here daily-- even though it's mostly in lurking form because of time constraints with MY little bundle of girl.

Hang in there KAT-- something WONDERFUL is about to happen!!

Tammy said...

painted maypole said...

i was just looking at pictures of me pregger (just posted one on my blog, actually) and thinking about how SWOLLEN I was all over.

prayers for you and your sweet girl...

Momisodes said...

Oh I'm so sorry to hear. The end of my pregnancy with my daughter was very similar. I swelled and was so uncomfortable during those final weeks. I hope the weather is at least cooler there for you, and perhaps the little lady will make an appearance soon!

Kelley said...

Oh, this sounds a little too familiar. I haven't had much access to the Internet lately, but I've been checking up on you every time I've had the chance. I'm SOOOOO excited that you'll soon be holding your darling baby girl in your arms. Yes, I think you have plenty of pink, but can you ever really have enough for a first (and last) girl after 3 boys? Nah! :)

I'll be praying for you and keeping you in my prayers. I'm so happy for you!!!! I hope the next couples weeks get a little more bearable for you. The last weeks can be torture!

Lisa said...

#1 - Glad you're doing alright. She'll be here before you know it! Soak it up indeed!

#2 - How thankful are you that this summer has been so cool? I was thinking the other day that this would be the best summer to be pregnant. Yay you!

Can't wait to hear the news!!!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
