Nearly 36 Weeks

This Thursday I will be 36 weeks, which means that after Thursday, if I should go into labor, they won't stop it.

Guess what momma's doing this weekend?? Walking. A lot.
We have to drive to Farmington to buy a car seat, and we'll probably end up walking the mall there. Then hopefully we'll be able to take a drive up to higher elevation, several people around here say the midwives send their clients to higher elevation to induce labor. Supposedly the lack of oxygen boosts things along, so I'm all for it.

Some people think that I am being a little impatient about this whole thing, I mean, I only have 3 weeks and 3 days until my doctor has agreed to induce me, but they don't really understand the misery of where I'm at physically.

Imagine, for a moment, that you had to carry this around not only in front of you, putting strain on your back, but also in your pelvic cavity.

Now keep in mind that at this stage, babies gain an average of 1/2 pound per week...if there are four weeks left of gestation left in my pregnancy, try to picture this baby growing another 2 pounds (probably more, because boys in my family are huge). Got that image in your head?? Now I have a question for you.

where is he going to go?!

There is no more room!! I'm telling you, there is no way I'm going to last that long!! For the first time ever, my belly button popped ALL THE WAY OUT. That didn't happen with either of my other two, that alone should be a hint of the full capacity.

I'm getting desperate. I really am. 

I want this mainly for my family, though. They are the ones who have to deal with my yelling and temper tantrums due to insanity brought on by lack of sleep....
