I am having another sleepless night, so I decided I would go ahead and write my journal. I have been waking up around 3am quite hungry. I usually have a snack, look on the computer, and go back to bed around 4am. I suppose it is my new routine that is getting me ready for the baby.
I had a great Christmas and enjoyed spending time with my family. My daughter was so fun to watch this year. She was so excited about Santa. I was exhausted once all the excitement of Christmas was over. I think I pushed myself a bit too much and had a horrid back ache for the next few days. Thankfully, it is doing much better now.
I had my appointment at my doctor's this past week. When he checked me I was 1cm dilated. I was so excited. He told me to not get excited and that it didn't mean I was going into labor any time soon, but I couldn't help myself. I didn't dilate at all with my daughter and I went 8 days past due with her. I am really hoping she will come early. January 1st would be a neat birthday to have. I am having a lot of pressure down in my pelvic area, so who knows. I think I am going to start doing laps around the block to see if I can speed up her arrival.
I am so thankful that I am able to have this little girl. I know so many people who want children so bad and are not able to. I was in their shoes just 9 short months ago. I feel so guilty when I complain of feeling bad. I can't wait to meet my second little miracle. I am so blessed!
