i'm ready, i am
That's not to say I'm not anxious, because I am still freaking out. But the multiple bathroom trips, the slight roll to the right to throw myself to the left in order to get out of bed in the morning, etc. have finally overstayed their welcome.
You guys. My maternity clothes don't fit anymore. I legitimately have about 3 outfits I can wear comfortably. My belly hangs out from under my shirts now because it is bigger than it has ever been in my previous pregnancies, forever placing the belly bands on display.
And oh my word, the itching. I am so itchy.
So yeah, when this baby is ready, I am too. I'm anxious about leaving the kids for a few days and for the sleeplessness. I still would like to make it to Halloween but if this kid came this weekend I would be released in time for trick or treat anyway.
Since my body doesn't generally seem to know how to go into labor on its own, I've really tried to up my physical activity the past few days in an effort to encourage it to prepare itself (I know it's premature but I need all the help I can get). I have done some squats and pelvic lifts. I have been nesting like crazy.
It took until 37.5 weeks, but yes. I'm ready when this kid is.
