I swear that pregnancy is designed to prepare you for motherhood. They are both fun and miraculous blessings that seem to test your physical and emotional limits. I have now entered the phase of pregnancy that I like to call "how freakin much longer can I do this??" Although, I can appreciate the importance of the final weeks of gestation (what with lung development, health of the baby, and whatnot), I am starting to be pretty uncomfortable: my belly feels huge, my heart feels burn-ey, and my fingers are starting to swell. UGH.
I will most likely induce so that we can have the baby in 2008, but with Christmas and our wedding anniversary falling within the last seven days before my due date (which is a window my doctor refuses to broaden), it has been hard to land on a convenient date.
Oh well.. at least I have Twilight and Thanksgiving and then all the fun Christmas stuff coming up to help keep me going!!
