It’s 1am and I’m up again!
The end of pregnancy is so, so hard! I have a theory that you get so miserable so that you get over the fear of giving birth towards the end because you just want it to be over!! I’m still pretty nervous about the prospect of actually giving birth, but I am definitely ready not to have a baby in my belly anymore!
We’re only 4 days away from my actual due date, which is this Friday, October 9th. I don’t think the baby is going to be coming on or before that day…not much has been going on at my weekly visits to the OB. My high risk doctor says that he doesn’t want me going past 41 weeks, so it looks as though the baby will be induced by October 16th at the latest. The 16th is, however, Scott’s birthday. We will see, though!
We’re thinking about naming the baby Olivia Susan if it’s a girl and John Finnean if it’s a boy. Scott’s not completely sold on the name Finn for a boy yet, but I’m holding out hope. I really, really love it. I think it’s perfect.
Well, I am going to try to go back to sleep again! Hopefully not too much more heartburn for the evening….
