I MADE IT!

Today was our last day of school before Spring Break :) Good thing, too, because my body is definitely telling me it's almost time. My ribs ache, I have awful cramps in different areas of my lower body and there are times where it feels like the baby is scratching my cervix...like, trying to scratch its way out...it's quite an alarming feeling!

But I haven't dropped and according to Dr K I'm only 1 cm dilated. I had a great appt yesterday...BPP was great and they did a NST which was also good. I'm up to 40 units of insulin before bed and 10 with breakfast. I dropped off my 24 hr urine sample and they took about 6 gallons of blood. They're checking for something with my kidneys...I wish I could give more details but at this point I'm so sick of doctors and needles and complications, I just don't want to bother. I have to go back twice next week for BPPs and OB visits...and the week after that is induction time! I must say, the closer we get the more excited I get...a little less anxious, a little more excited. I'm hoping to have a restful break with sweet Audrey Cate and then Baby Burns can make his or her appearance anytime after that!

BOO for all of the complications but YAY for Baby Burns almost here! I had that scratching cervix feeling with Charlie, too. Very weird sensation. We'll be praying for you and your little guy/gal.

I had that weird cervix feeling with both of my pregnancies. It really does feel like they're trying to claw their way out of there! Ouch!

One more week til baby time! :-D
