As of tomorrow, I am 38 weeks pregnant. This last month has really dragged. I really thought that Cadyn was going to make his debut around this time, but it seems as if he is being stubborn. I shouldn't really be surprised being he has been stubborn throughout this whole pregnancy...he made me wait FOREVER to find out that he was a boy!
It makes things even harder when I am just so uncomfortable, my skin is absolutely stretched to the max....once I'm finished having all my kids, I'm going to need some major reconstructive surgery haha! I just feel like a whale...I have put on 36 lbs....I was doing SO GOOD and these last 2 months I have really ballooned! I have the classic pregnant woman swollen face going on, looks like I'm storing nuts for the Winter. The worst part is going in public, I have gotten to the point where I don't want to go anywhere because I am so sick of people talking to me about it. I know that sounds rude, but I really can't help it. I can't go ANYWHERE without people asking me if I'm having twins.....NEVER EVER EVER ask a pregnant woman that!!! It's just rude! You may not think it sounds all that bad, but you are basically are just telling me that I look twice as big as I should....I get it, I am huge. You would think that someone who has had a kid would know this, but I have had mom's ask if it was twins and when I say no, they say "it must be a boy then....my son did that to me too, I was huge" Just because you've been through it, doesn't give you the right to call me huge. UGH! I'm also paranoid when we go to restaurants, I'm so afraid they are going to take us to a booth that I'm not going to fit in....how embarassing would that be!?
Anyway, I had a dr's appt. today. I haven't really make any progress, but we scheduled a day for induction! YAAAAY! Cadyn will be here no later than March 23rd! Even though I really would love for him to come sooner...it makes me feel 100 times better knowing that he will at least be here in 12 days! I am going to stop wishing and hoping that he will be here sooner (I have been driving myself crazy doing that). I can officially just start counting down now. This also makes things a little easier for the family. We live 4 hours away from everyone so now they know exactly when he'll be here and can schedule around it. Obviously there is still a chance he could be here before the 23rd, but I really doubt it. I was getting a little worried that I would go past my due date (the 26th) and not be able to go to Tulsa for Easter....it will be our first trip with him...yes he won't be very old, but we for sure want to be with the family and go to church on Easter Sunday...plus we already bought a super cute outfit for him :)
Anyway, that's my update...countdown 12 days!
