Just fine being pregnant

DD was an AWFUL baby and it is fresh in my memory still so, I'm just fine with staying pregnant for awhile longer! No, pregnancy sleep isn't like before pregnancy, but it's a hell of a lot better than NO sleep...yes, it hurts to sit, to stand, and to breathe. Yes, I would stab a puppy if it meant I could eat some empty carbs (chocolate chip cookies and ice creeeeeam!). Yes, I am ready for a beer...or four. But none of my pregnancy aches or pains or cravings will seem so bad when I'm on my 49 th hour awake with only 10 minute cat "naps" here and there. Not to mention poor DD isn't probably going to be very happy once baby comes... So, in short, I am excited to meet this baby, but the time WILL come and I'm not going to rush it by.

I feel exactly the same way you do! Everyone keeps asking me if I am anxious or ready, NOPE! I could just stay like this forever, not that it is easy to walk around like this and do as much as I used to but I agree it is a lot harder to take care of a newborn then it is to be pregnant. I think this is our last so I am trying to enjoy every minute and hoping I can keep baby in for a full 40 weeks.
We will meet our babies soon enough!

Haha. Well I'm glad that you are so ready to let baby cook longer. I can totally get how you feel. New babies are hard. I baby sat a 20 month old while I had Riley this last week and it was HARD.

ROFL omg stab a puppy. Totally get you there! With DS I was the same way. Could have stayed of forever. But not this time by his has been too tough of a go around Sad

Oh and treat yourself to a cookie already! It will not hurt anything! No puppy stabbing required.

lol too funny! I go back and forth, I tell people they are quite needy lil things once they exit the womb at least now I can sleep at night and not have to get a baby back to sleep before I sleep. No crying, pooing... maybe cankles aren't so bad after all! Now if the sciatic nerve would vanish THAT would be amazing!
