38 Weeks

I don't feel right. I woke up with lower back pain, at the base of my spine. It's a dull ache, really. I'm also having some light abdominal cramping. My legs feel heavy. I'm having plenty of painless but irregular contractions, too. I don't feel like the baby is in quite the right position, though. I feel. . .off.

I cannot have this baby this weekend. Did I mention that my doctor is out of town? The woman works insane hours and never goes away. I cannot possibly go into labor the one weekend she is away.

My weight is an impressive 148.6. How I gained 3 pounds this week, I have no idea. It seems impossible, but there it is.

More TMI: more stringy, mucous-y, possibly plug whitish stuff today when I use the bathroom.

And I am cranky. I just want to be left alone. Except for Miss M, who is snuggled up next to me and keeps giving me kisses, which is exactly what I need.

Hoping you'll hold on until your doc gets back (I know that's what you want!) although it sounds promising for labor...

Oh, Queenie, I'm hoping that all the stars align for the perfect timing. And also the perfect position.

Eager to hear what comes very best wishes!
