This pregnancy has gone by so fast!
And we are all ready RIGHT NOW to meet this little guy. I have to say that I have had it quite a bit different this time around. I mean, I hear about all of these women in their 40's getting preggo right now and I don't know how they are doing it. They must have amazing amazon bodies because I feel like with this fourth pregnancy I am falling APART!
For example, I have never had such aching in my hips and it takes me at least 5 min. to get out of bed every morning. (you should hear the noises)
Also, this pregnancy I am anemic. I didn't even really know what that was till now, and I am on a strict order to take my iron pills daily.
I just found out at my last appt. that my blood platelets are low and that I have to take steroid pills, starting tomorrow (that p.s. will make me a total B*#@%) until they can get my levels up. Oh yeah... and if they can't get my platelet levels up.... they won't give me an EPIDURAL!!
I know all you "she women" out there that did it naturally are saying, so what. But that's not how I roll! I want to enjoy my last delivery. I am freaking out here!!
Last but not least, I have a big dark spot that I am now seeing out of the corner of my left eye that I have yet to get checked out. Yikes!
So all in all I feel like I am one prescription drug away from sucking dinner from a straw while watching the Lawerance Welk show from the comfort of my Hover Round chair.
Has anyone else felt 90 years old on their last pregnancy?
On the flip side, I am glad to be healthy and have the last member of our family coming to meet us in 6 days. I am almost dilated to a 3 and my tummy dropped about 2 weeks ago.
We are praying for a healthy boy and a speedy delivery!
