40 weeks 5 days

Yup, still pregnant.  Getting some signs labor could start soon.  I pray that it's true.

Had to go to the doctor yesterday...I was a little worried I was leaking some amniotic fluid.  Turned out to be a false alarm, although the doc didn't provide any explanation as to what I WAS experiencing.  (I really don't think they know what's going on 75% of the time in any case.)

I've thought and wondered and prepared for this baby to come into the world to such an extent that I'm starting to lose the excitement.  I'm just tired of it all spinning in my head!!  My brain is getting tired of the topic.  It's ready to move on.  Does that make sense?

I just pray to God daily...multiple times daily...that He will give me the patience and peace I need until this baby arrives.  One day at a time...


  1. makes sense--you are so OVER being pregnant and understandably so! I was 3 days late with Ryan and I thought that was forever and I was 1 week early with Molly--and I still thought I was preggo forever!

    I will keep praying that your little man makes his entrance soon!

    really--they didn't tell you what you were leaking?!

  2. I think God likes to make us wait, and wait , and wait, so that when we finally go into labor we don't care how much it hurts, because we know it means the baby will be here soon, and the belly will no loner be too full to eat, or move, or think.
    Hang in there Kara, he will come out eventually. No one has ever stayed pregnant forever (even if it feels like you might be the first). Just be glad you aren't an elephant.

  3. Hang in there! There's this pizza place over here that everyone swears put women into labor. It's the spicy one that does it. We're relatively new to the city, but when I was pregnant and went out, there was someone who'd tell me about this place.

  4. You know, I was actually thinking of this yesterday while I was driving on I-40. I'm not sure how I got on the subject, but I was thinking about how pregnancy is like planning a wedding, and how I hear brides get so sick of wedding talk by the time the wedding arrives (not always), and how much your life has been forced to focus on pregnancy in a similar way. I've really enjoyed learning about it with you, and I hope when my time comes, that you're having another. Maybe go ahead and let Dave know. You rock my friend.
