Dropping ketones; midwife has me downing protein like crazy (with natural foods).
Mucus plug (sorry, I know that's gross) is presenting itself slowly (long story).
Had three strong contractions last night. Then nothing.
Brandon massaged the pressure points in my feet last night. Nothing.
Did other things (none of your beeswax!). Nothing.
Every sign is pointing towards labor, but it's just not happening. Trying really, really hard to ignore the overwhelming, emotionally charged frustration at still being pregnant. I know I'm not due until next week. I know I should let him stay in there for as long as he needs it. I know I need to be positive. I know I won't be pregnant forever.
Any woman who has given birth understands, eh? The last few weeks are just hard. Exhausting and frustrating and annoying.
I just want to hold my baby!
Okay, I'm off to do something productive. Like dishes, juicing some kale, switching the laundry, or taking a nap. Probably all of 'em.
"By far the most common craving of pregnant women is not to be pregnant."
