So this should be the last shot of the belly! But while my EDD is fast approaching (only 4 days away) it would seem the finishing line is going to be pushed out a little further. Kind of like the end of the rainbow. You just can't find the pot of gold!
Yes, my OB has warned me that it is very likely I will go over my due date! Now, while I know this is not necessarily a bad thing and all babies come when they are ready I can't help but be a little bit over it!
This time around the pelvic pains that have been progressively getting worse over the last 4-5 weeks are starting to get somewhat annoying! I mean, it would seem that there is no purpose to them other than to provide some discomfort around the clock.
Now, don't get me wrong. I am still very grateful and very excited that I will meet this baby soon but it's time for me to have a little bit of whinge.
If I knew that these pains were doing something to help us meet this baby soon I would accept them willingly and with little fuss but this is not the case. They're more like a mossie....buzzing around your head, annoying the shit out of you but not something you're gonna miss if it isn't there. Because what purpose do they have? Other than to be an annoying shit!
Monday night I got some sign of things to come with very regular pains all night. But again, only to keep me awake all night and not show again in the morning, or since for that matter. What's with that? Here I was quietly contemplating the reality that I may have a baby in my arms on the Tuesday only to find it was all a big tease.
The old saying "careful what you wish for" springs into my mind but damn it, I'm gonna say it anyway.......
Come on baby!!!! We're waiting for you. We really, really, really want to meet you.
