The Watched Pot

So here I sit now 38 weeks pregnant. Still waiting... but, actually today I feel pretty good about it. The last week and a half or so has been really healing. The poly.hydramnios while still present, is now in the mild range. My last few NSTs have gone just swimmingly. I'm starting to feel ready to have this baby here and not just because I want it out before it dies. It feels good. I'm trying to eke out any joy that I can. I know that my days of carrying a baby inside are coming to an end. Like everything else on this journey, it is bittersweet, but today, thankfully, it is more sweet than bitter.

Thx for the update, you know I am watching you like a hawk! So happy to know that hope and sweet can be part of a pg after joining the club. Here's to enjoying these last moments as a pg woman and to a long lifetime of enjoying this new little one once s/he decides to come on out.
