Yeah, baby! 37 weeks. Whoohoo! I am LOVING that. It feels like a huge accomplishment this time around.
The iron infusions are starting to take effect, and I am simply amazed at how utterly normal I feel nowadays. I didn’t even realize how bad I felt– I mean, I knew I was extremely run down, but I chalked it up to having four kids, homeschooling, holidays, and being in my thirties. I felt like a 90 year old pregnant woman, literally. But now, I feel more like I should, which is big and waddlesome, yes, but with the normal aches and pains of being nine months pregnant. This, well, I can handle this. I could go the full 40 weeks if I get to feel this good. (no, I take that back, please don’t make me wait that long!!)
Seriously, though, I am much improved, and I am not even halfway through the treatments. I am so relieved that I don’t have to finish out the next few weeks feeling the way I did. I was trying to be trooper about it, but I am soooooo glad to feel better. I can really sit back and enjoy the season, the last days of pregnancy, and my family. Not a bad end to the year.
Anyway, that’s all. Just thought I’d throw in an update before I hit the hay. Night, everybody.
(Oh, and PS: I am dilated 1 cm. It’s not much, but I’ll take it!!)
