36 Weeks

9 months. How on earth did I get to be 9 months pregnant?

Weight: 130.2 (+25.2 from starting weight, +1.2 from last week)

Symptoms: sciatic nerve pain, backache, constantly having to pee, braxton hicks contractions, my skin is stretched so thin that it hurts

How I am Feeling: I am feeling very anxious. Seriously. This baby could decide to be born pretty much any day now. 

Best Thing about Pregnancy: Well, I've made it 9 months without any stretch marks on my belly or chest. I have quite a few on my bottom that showed up earlier, but they are starting to get lighter already. 

Worst Thing about Pregnancy:  I am starting to wake up with back and belly aches in the morning. It sucks to feel worse in the morning that I did the night before. I am not getting up twice during the night to go to the bathroom. I have gotten so use to it I don't even turn any lights on, so it's not too hard to get back to sleep. Sometimes I'll go to the kitchen for a glass of milk in the middle of the night if heartburn wakes me up. Dan and I use to not get through a gallon of milk before it would expire. We're going through 2 gallons a week now. I love milk. 

I think Dan is starting to get anxious, too. Someone needed him on Sunday, so Mike Henderson went into the Sunday School class to get him without letting him know who was looking for him. I happen to be in the hall at the same time, so he automatically thought that I sent for him and it was time to go to the hospital. I think he intellectually knows that it doesn't happen that fast, but all movies and tv shows make it appear so and he has become programmed. 

Group B Strep test at my doctors' office tomorrow. Hopefully it is negative or it will really throw a wrench into the birth plan.
