38 weeks

Just in case anyone was wondering... I'm still hanging in there with this baby! These last few weeks of the journey feel like months- the waiting and wondering is almost unbearable!
Not to mention I am feeling very uncomfortable, out of sorts, tired, and moody.
My mom and I were talking, and sometimes when you are as big as a house, trying to balance work, home, a 20 month old, and a husband... you get so overwhelmed and you just feel... sad. I know that I should feel excited and ready, which I do, but sometimes I just wanna cry. My body is stretched to the limits, I have indigestion 24-7, I cannot sleep at night, and I am just ready. Ready to have my baby; ready to meet her; ready to have my body back; ready to not have to haul my tired butt up every morning and come teach a bunch of 15 year old kids who could care less about what I'm going through. Ready to not have to carry my 31 pound daughter up and down the stairs because she is refusing to walk up and down them- ready to introduce Ali to her new sister. I'm just over it. And feeling like that about some a miracle and a blessing that is about to make her entrance into our family at any day makes me, once again, feel sad.

I'm with you. It's okay to feel sad and overwhelmed and I think it's kind of normal. Hang in there. ;)
