“This is my sister Sarah… and no, she’s not smuggling a basketball under her shirt!” is how my brother has been introducing me to his friends lately. How flattering, eh? lol

It’s a little hard to believe that I’m already 37 weeks along… Then on the other hand I keep saying, “When will this be OVER?!?!” I am so tired of being pregnant. It has lost all of it’s novelty. Did I mention that last week? I just can’t stand being this uncomfortable any longer. I have a real big problem with not being able to escape my own misery…

If God were a woman, things wouldn’t be like this, I’m sure!!!!!!!!

Friday night, I thought I went into labor, but when the contractions didn’t get closer together, I just went to bed. When I woke up, they were gone. I was a little disappointed.

According to my midwife, (AND ME!) I am going to go very soon… It’s just taking too long to get there! I’m taking long walks every day, having tons of sex, eating spicy food, and going for bumpy car rides. What more can I do to get this child to come out?!

One of the midwife’s in training said to me last week, “Oh it’s great to go the full 40 weeks with the baby because then they have all the little fat rolls on their legs and arms and they are so much cuter!”

Say what? Is she kidding me?

Now if she had said something about the last few weeks being important for lung function or this immune system, or something important I would be ok with that. But FAT ROLLS?! She wants me to be uncomfortable and miserable for 3 more weeks for FAT ROLLS??!!??!! I think not.

At the risk of sounding like an inexperienced newbie, I must express that I can’t tolerate being pregnant any longer and I will do just about anything to pop this baby out of me this week!!!

Any suggestions on how to accomplish that???
