I am now 37 weeks and nearing my 38 week mark and am very frustrated. Last Monday I started having contractions off and on and on Wednesday for a complete 24 hours I was having contractions every 12 minutes but then it stopped. This has frustrated me on so many levels because once the contractions start I just want to get the labor process over. I realize the baby will come when she is ready but I also realize that my body is exhausted from having contractions on a normal basis. Yesterday I went in and had another check up and I am officially dilating now but I was only a 1 when I left the office. I have no clue if any progress has been made since then but I am getting stronger contractions and I am just worn out. Please keep our family in prayer as we are nearing the end of this pregnancy and I am beginning to get a little more irritable with everyone around me. I am trying not to say anything period but every once in a while I say something I wish I didn't. For instance my babies come and run to me to give me a hug but they happen to do it when I am getting a contraction and I get so upset and tell them to please leave the room. My babies don't deserve that so I have been trying to suck up the pain and give them hugs and kisses so they know I still love them. They know something is different and every once in a while Isaiah will say, "Mommy you alright?" I love my babies but I must admit at this point in the pregnancy I am not liking this part at all right now. Today is a new day and I am grateful that we have this day to enjoy. I thank you for all your support and prayers. I finally downloaded the sonograms up to date so here is where our baby is at this point. Hope you enjoy.
