Waddling towards the finish line

37 weeks, 1 day pregnant
20 DAYS TO GO!
I totally thought I was going to have the baby yesterday.
For those of you too tired/bored/busy to read on, here is the spoiler: I did not have the baby yesterday.
Why did I think it might be “the big day”? Well …
- I just felt “off”
- I felt like I had period cramps
- I felt nauseous
- My back hurt
- I was unusually cranky
- I was having bad Braxton Hicks contractions
- I had an overwhelming urge to clean up my mess from scrapbooking
I felt bad pretty much all day, and it culminated at bedtime with heartburn so intense
that it came in waves that left me gasping. Stupid prescription
didn’t help at all!
I ended up spending the entire night on the couch, just so I could sleep sitting up. I’m sure Little Dog and Darling Husband enjoyed having our queen-sized bed to themselves, while me and my army of pillows
lay pitifully in the living room.
Anytime, now, Baby … c’mon … anytime …
