I know I shouldn't be...but I'm kind of grumpy today. This end of pregnancy thing is not my cup of tea. =) It's uncomfortable, and I'm ready for it to be over. On the other hand, I am very thankful that God would choose me to carry this little girl until it's the perfect time for her to come out into this world. And I mean that. I have felt quite grumpy today, but I know the "right" answer, and I really do want her to be born at the time that God has appointed for her. It's just not very fun sometimes.

I had a doctor's appointment today, and I had to wait for a LONG time to be seen. And then I was seen by two different people who were NOT my doctor. They were way backed up because of the holiday yesterday and two c-sections this morning. But I did see him for a couple of minutes at the end of my appointment. Long enough for him to basically say, "Everything looks good. Any questions?" "YEAH, when am I going to have her???" is what I wanted to say. =) But he doesn't know - of course. And we just have to wait...like any normal pregnant person. I really don't like not being able to have everything planned out. =) By the time that ordeal was over, I was TIRED, HUNGRY, and FRUSTRATED - which was NOT a good combination. So Beau met me at Chili's, and we had lunch - which included a Dr. Pepper and dessert. I thought I deserved it. I've been "good" for long enough! =)

Then this evening Asher and I went to Dina's for dinner - and it was DELICIOUS! But Asher was a bit (more than a bit) of a terror! I hate saying that about any kid, but it was true tonight! I don't know why, but he was getting into EVERYTHING that he wasn't supposed to, and I could NOT get him to obey me! I'm currently at a loss about that! How do you get an almost two year old to obey you when you're already trying all the things that you're "supposed" to do??? Needless to say, it was good to get him into bed tonight. =)

And here I am...venting. And now I feel a little better - and almost ready to go to sleep - which is probably what I need the most! =) So good night. Here's to tomorrow being three weeks until Ainsley's due!!!

You're just terrible. Pull up your boot straps (and your nursing bra straps) and turn that frown upside down... that's what I always say. ;)

I'm just kidding... but wasn't that hilarious... coming from me. :)

Really, you are doing great, Sister. Pregnant woman are supposed to get sick of being pregnant... that is the only way that they'll ever get the nerve up to walk themselves into a hospital and push a baby... A BABY!... out of their body! Don't be hard on yourself.

Hang in there. She'll be out of there soon. Forever!!! :)

And, sorry about the bad baby... I can't really relate, bur I have heard that it is difficult to have such a defiant child. ;)

Yeah, yeah, yeah...you are INDEED HILARIOUS!!! Thanks for the entertainment! =) And I'm feeling much better today, by the way. =)

I agree... Amy, that was a hilarious response to your prego sister. :0) Sara, I too think you are doing an amazing job of being 9 months pregnant. You can be grumpy and vent if you want to and it's OK. I can't think of a pregnant woman who doesn't feel all the things you described when they are nigh unto birthin' a baby. Especially with an almost 2 year old under foot. I'll see you in a few days. You need a pedicure, don't you? Maybe we'll go get one on Saturday. How 'bout it? Might be a real blessin'.

Sara said...

Sounds lovely! We can leave the "almost 2 year old" with Dad and Beau. =)
