    Today I am 32w5days. Having a good day! Just got back from MD late last night. My feet were swollen something terrible.

    Went to doc appt today and he said I could travel to my babyshower in KY during Thanksgiving but to stop every 2hrs and drink lots and lots of water to ward off the edema. He also said they will induce me a week before my duedate if I haven't went into labor by then. GREAT news since the student tried to tell me they wont do that until a week after my duedate. I said thats not what I was told. So we know that my little pea will be here at least by the 23rd of Dec or sooner.

    They said if I keep these headaches they wanna do a 24hrurine scan to make sure I dont have preeclampsia. The headaches have disappeared the last 24hrs so maybe I just needed more water.

    I know lately I cant eat for anything. My stomach is so far up in my ribs that I anything I eat hurts or causes nausea. I also have god awful heartburn and acid reflux.

    ps: I weigh 160, the most I have ever weighed in my life....UGH...I feel so fat.

    She is 5lbs of that..lol lol like thats alot. Im so silly.

    She keeps moving and sticking elbows and knees in my sides. Its neat to watch her, because she is so active. You see my belly morph into all kinds of shapes..really cool.

    33wks3days......TODAY!

    Well from headaches, to heartburn, to swelling...I got it all.....I am so ready for you to come on out and meet your mommy!!!! (or at least drop so i can breath)

    Tomorrow we go to get a crib for you! We are so broke right now so Nani is going to buy it for us. I am so appreciative! She just doesnt realize. We moved Austen's crib into his sisters room since we are still in the midst of the custody battle...I mean why have 2 empty rooms when we could put "you" in one of them?

    Anyways....Im too excited to decorate letters and nursery and well..everything for you. My shower is in less than 2 weeks. Im hoping to get everything I need. I need ALOT of stuff...mostly a carseat and things.....we really could use alot since we don't have alot of money. We shall see...

    Oh my goodness, I cant wait till she gets here....luv you baby Myriah!!!

    Well today I am 35wks1day pregnant and so so soooooo anxious to meet my little girl! Everything has been great lately. I can't lie! Ron and I have been getting along (except for my occasional hormones) and we had a great holiday. I miss his kids and I know he does too but hopefully God will have his way and he will get to see them soon.

    He agreed to stay home until baby gets here which is awesome and definitely keeps the stress off of me since I have been freaking out about him not being here when Myriah is born.

    Tonight we started to put up Christmas decorations. I got the tree up and thats it, no ornaments on it yet.

    I've been cramping alot lately and having braxton hicks as well as some other prelabor things. Im so ready to see my little girl. I am so excited to have her here in my arms. This is the most anticipated thing I have ever felt in my entire life! I dont know if there are words to explain it.

    Anyways I plan on walking and staying as busy as possible the next few days, weeks. Whatever it takes to see her sooner! My next doc appt is on Thursday and I am hoping to hear some positive news. I know that I have another ultrasound which will be cool! I bet she looks so chubby by now. Probably 7lbs or more. I feel like she is HUGE!

    I had a great babyshower and got lots of gifts. Ron and I have been getting the room ready and I finally am feeling prepared for your arrival!

    Almost December....I think that Daddy is betting on Dec 8th-16th. John has the 17th and after. Mom was saying the 17th but now the 5th of December. Aunt Mary says the 8th.

    I just want to see you before they induce. That would be much much better! We shall see!

    I cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    35 weeks and 5 days and done done done!!!! I had my appt today and am not happy. I just wanted some kind of end in sight and he would not say. He only says I will have a nice tax deduction. I feel like crying.

    She weighs 6lbs10ozs already and by feel he says she is a good 7lbs. She also is totally engaged--meaning her head is completely down in the pelvis. Which probably explains the cramping I have had. They said Im measuring at 37weeks which would make her full term NOW!

    So Im just curious, can she come out now and play. Im so over this "pregnant" phase. I have never in my life had to wait this long for anything. Im just so tired of feeling tired and being huge and my feet hurting and etc etc etc!!!!

    I want this to be over and I want to hold my little girl. I cry thinking I will have to go all the way to Christmas. I pray that the Lord have some kind of mercy on me. I already am convinced Im having a 8lb baby! I dont want a 10ber...that would be hell on my small frame.

    Well gotta go eat dinner.....and walk walk walk...this baby right outta me! Hopefully. ELV ELV

    I am now 36wk2days pregnant well 3days cuz its midnight. Alot has changed in the last 2 days. First to start off, on Sat, mom came over to remove this skintag and well she checked me and I was 1cm dilated and 20% effaced or thinned out. Well when she removed the glove, I was totally bleeding. I knew she didnt do it, I didnt feel pain and it was too much. So went to L&D to have them check me and they agreed I was 1cm and 25%effaced. Well they released me but later that day I returned due to clots and more blood. I was freaking out. I wanted a for sure answer on what was happening. By then I was 35% thinned out and 2cm already dilated.

    Since then I have been having regular contractions, not painful though, bloody show and mucus constantly. Everytime I wipe , this is so gross, but this mucousy bloody sticky crap comes out. I keep thinking they are boogers..lol but it must be my cervix thinning out more.

    I was checked again and 3cm dilated. I am now still having contractions not painful, some backpain/menstrual cramps, some I cant walk through but not bad enough to think they are doing any progress.

    I really keep hoping my water will break. Wishful thinking....anyways....heres to ELV to myself. I would love to have this baby for so many reasons but also because between the pain, the diarrhea..ugh, hemerroids....everything..it sucks!

    Well I have officially made it to 37wks tomorrow! and I am DONE DONE DONE!!! I really feel terrible about wishing this pregnancy over but walking around with your stomach constantly as hard as a rock, is not fun. I have had contractions now for 5 days off and on. I was admitted into the hospital because they said I was in labor only to find that the contractions arent progressing me enough or changing my cervix....so guess what SENT HOME!

    I can hardly walk now, My leg is in such pain. I know I know..complaining but I am so ready to have this baby.

    I get to go to a new doc on Tuesday, Dr Serrano and now Ive changed hospitals which I am glad about because they were not treating me right at the old one and delivering my baby girl in a nice place like University will make me oh so happy!!

    Well I hope I go into labor soon because I think of nothing else but this baby 24/7!! Heres to elv elv elv.....lol Its almost like they say about love" when you least expect it, it will happen."

    Well here I am at 37weeks3days prego and no baby as of yet. She really has decided to stay in and well thats fine but its not working for my Crohns disease.

    I got a new doc and a new hospital today. Dr Serrano and well shes okay. Im more estatic about delivering at University since my other hospital SUCKED bigtime. She did say that if my Crohns keeps us she will induce me at 39wks, well thats the 23rd of Dec and I doubt she will do that on a Saturday but my next appointment is Tuesday so Im just going to go ahead and setup and induction date whether it be the 26th or what. I dont want to have this baby on Alexis (DSD) bday which is the 29th and I really want my December baby but MORE SO...Ive been vomiting and having diarrhea like crazy. I feel as though I have the flu and could sleep away every hour of the day. Food doesnt even sound good.

    I dont look to go into labor before that week. I was in pre-labor but the pain, discharge, blood, and contractions have ceased to change me. I went today and no change in my cervix whatsoever. I either pray my water breaks or just pray that the next few weeks go by fast because I am absolutely miserable.

    My mother pointed out that "Mary" the mother of Jesus was pregnant during this time of year and didnt I find that kinda neat. It is cool to think about but truthfully I just want to be done. I am grateful everyday that God gave me this wonderful opportunity to feel a child, a baby inside of me. There is no feeling like it in the entire world! :P I am truly blessed beyond what many get to experience. I now am ready to experience looking my child in the eyes for the first time. I am ready to hold her, love her, smell her.....take care of her.

    I never wanted to be a mother, but now that I have shared 9mths with this tiny being...I truly know what "true love" is and I thank God for that. I thank God for my husband who gave me this gift.

    Now....can we have this baby already?

    Default MY vent for today!!

    Im 38wks2days pregnant and well I need someone or something to vent to! Here is my list of vents for why I need to have this baby now and why I am going to lose it if I don't.

    1. Im in constant pain either from contractions or from my Crohns which has come back to show its ugly face in these last few weeks.
    2. Im constantly nausated or wanna throw up. I can't eat anymore and enjoy it because the contractions squeeze the crap out of my stomach and make me sick.
    3. I have to take Phenergan to feel somewhat okay and that makes me wanna sleep my days away!
    4. I snore so bad I cant sleep with my husband anymore so I sleep on the couch and it hurts. Not to mention I snore to where I wake myself up and I cannot breathe. I have night sweats where my hair is almost soaking wet.
    5. It hurts to pee or go #2 because of the squeezing, the pressure, and the hemerroids.
    6. Its painful to go from lying down to sitting up, bending down, walking etc
    7. The babys head is constantly on my sciatic nerve which makes me walk funny and have this lightening sharp pain go down both of my legs.
    8. I feel guilty, depressed, anxious, and bad for the emotions Ive had lately. I feel as if I don't care that Im pregnant anymore, that I wish I wasnt pregnant. I sometimes wonder if I want this baby and I hate these feelings. I know its because I just want her to come out, I am so absolutely miserable. I could cry and do cry at the drop of a hat. Please God have mercy on me.
    9. I don't feel the bonding with her that I felt at 34 and 35 weeks and I know its because I just want her out of me.
    10. I want to be to sleep more than an hour at a time. I wish I could take medicine and sleep away the rest of this pregnancy.

    There are my vents! Im sure there are more but these are it for now. Maybe next time I write I will have things to be thankful for.

    I still love my baby girl...just needed to get these out.

    Myriah's Birth Story: The Greatest Gift I have ever been given! (It still brings tears to my eyes) beware, its long

    I am so blessed beyond belief..here is what happened. On Thursday afternoon I started having strong contractions and more bloody show,hence L&D. I changed from 1cm to 2cm within 30mins. I was admitted. I was told if contractions weaned/waned, would start pitocin in morning. (was told weeks ago I was 3cm..go figure...different fingers, differnence of opinion.) They gave me demerol twice during night and knocked out my contractions almost completely...if you ask me on PURPOSE. Come to find out, surgery is closed for the holiday on Friday and they won't induce anyone for fear of Csection....I was discharged. Nurse that comes into let me go, checks me and cant believe they are letting me go because of being significantly effaced, dilated and on my chart, they put bag of water was bulging on Thursday. Went home depressed and decided baby will come out on her induction date of Wednesday..no Christmas present here.

    Skip to Sat night...was up till 3am watching movies, went to bed was snoring, DH kicks me out of room..(haha, J/K) Went to extra bed where I have this really hard braxton hicks that I cant even move with. I was falling asleep and then I barely hear this pop and I peed. I get up mad and go to the b-room to finish peeing and wipe out some nasty gooky stuff...go to stand up and water starts coming out. Im like..."I must be crazy and keep smelling it. Finally wake up DH and he thinks Im crazy too. I wipe completely dry and stand up but feel nothing. Decide to go back to bed except I havent felt baby move and get scared. Try to move her and no response. DH decides to take me to hospital...he seems irritated. So I feel nothing the entire trip to the hospital and think..the people at L&D are going to be pissed at "me the crazy girl"

    We get there and get out and within seconds, I said, "Its my water" and DH says how do you know? I say cuz Im peeing and well it wont stop and we start laughing as we are walking in because its steadily soaking my pants and I like an idiot brought no towel.

    So....they check and yes indeed my water broke..no doubts there. They admit me, hook me up..Im 3cm. Start pitocing to speed things up and ask if I want an epi. Im like so soon? Im not in pain...they said "you will be and fast" Im so GLAD that the nurse talked me into getting it then. Guy comes in to give it to me and says you have scoliosis..and its gonna take him a minute. By the time he starts the contractions are already killing me. He gets it in, and Im told to rest. Time flew real fast.....all I know is at noon or 1230 I said I felt pressure.....now you have to realize the last time I was checked I was 3cm...they check and I AM 9 CM ALREADY!!! They set up, came in ( I felt like I was in a dream, at how fast it all happened) and I was told to take a deep breath and push with a contraction. I told them, it felt like she was gonna pop out (no pain ladies, just pressure) and they said ..no she is fine but with the 2nd push, everyone in the room went "OH MY, HERE SHE IS"....lmao....HOW THE hell did that happen so fast and so easy? I immediately cried upon seeing here. Having a child is like nothing I have ever experienced. I am still in awe of my body, her, and how God created something so perfect.

    Sorry this is long but I wanted to save this to always remember how blessed I was to not be in pain, and to experience such an easy labor. Im truly blessed. (downside: ripped 2 degrees, have the worst hemerroids the docs had seen in a long time, and the after labor part has been more painful then labor itself) recovery is tough!

    Here's to everyone: hope you had a great Christmas and have a beautiful New Year!!!!
