Week 38 ~ January 13, 2008 ~ The End of My Pregnancy
Well, I have successfully made it through yet another week. I am so relieved that I only have a few days left of pregnancy. It seems to get a bit more painful everyday. I have had some excruciating back pains for the last few days. I suppose it is from the baby being so big. Insomnia has been an increasing problem, but I think it is mainly from anxiety. I am constantly wondering if each little pain I feel is labor starting. I went to the doctors this week and found out that I had lost two pounds from all of my nausea. I have still been struggling with nausea and have lost another pound. I am hoping once I have the baby my stomach issues will subside.I am doing much better mentally, I think because I know there is an end in sight.
My husband is frantically working to get the new office ready so we can use the old office as a nursery once the baby comes. Hopefully we can get everything ready, but if we can't, it isn't too big of a deal because we plan for her to sleep in a bassinet next to our bed for the first month or so. It would be nice to be organized with all her things in one area when I get home. Right now I have most of her things in my closet and a few of her clothes in my dresser, so needless to say I am a bit unorganized. Go figure, nine months of knowing she is coming and we are rushing at the last moment.
This is my final pregnancy journal before I have my little one (you don't know how long I have been waiting to write that). I have truly enjoyed having the opportunity to write and express what I have felt each week. I now have a priceless insight to my pregnancy that I can one day give to my little girl. I can't wait to see what she looks like. I hope and pray she is healthy and has all ten fingers and toes.
Only two days left until I am able to hold my second little miracle. I can't wait!!
