I'm normal. right? 36 weeks 5 days.

I guess this is normal.... like pre-wedding jitters?

I'm getting just a little panicky. Nervous.

Not nervous about the c-section (although I'm sure that will hit me friday morning), but just nervous about the whole thing - it's just a big day in my life. Am I ready for this? Am I going to be any good at this?

Although unlike the pre-wedding doubts - it's not like I can back out now. Too late to change my mind.

Tell me everybody feels like this before they deliver. am I right? this is normal?

three days. OMG. THREE DAYS! wednesday, thursday, friday. three.

I haven't been sleeping good. And not because of the nervousness, or discomfort. No. Because of the snoring. I have been snoring so loud that I constantly wake myself up. I have to drug myself with benadryl in order to get a good nights sleep. The doc said it was perfectly safe, but I still don't feel right taking it every night. So I haven't been taking it more than once or twice a week. But I finally broke down and had some last night - and I slept good. It was wonderful. J's been sleeping downstairs, and he said he could hear me snoring last night. But I didn't wake me up!

three days....

I don't know if what your feeling is normal or not, but I would bet it is. you will be great at mothering! I hear it comes somewhat natural???

Thalia said...

well, I feel the same way so perhaps we can be normal together?

hang in there.

I think it sounds perfectly normal to me!

Good luck on Friday, I will be waiting for the news!

Very normal, I bet! It is indeed a big day, to say the least. If I think that 20 weeks from now my big day might come - if all goes well - I get major jitters too. I can imagine what I might feel like with only 3 days to go! I have pretty much lurked all along - rooting for you, and now I'll be waiting anxiously for the happy news.

I think it is TOTALLY normal!

That's how I feel too, so it must be completely normal - at least that's what I keep telling myself.

Wishing you peace, health and love on your big day - FRIDAY!!!! Will be thinking of you guys.

Completely normal. I was very anxious about it.

you did bring back memories of my pre-wedding jitters, i'm sure i'd be feeling the exact same way! i imagine the feeling is even more intense with a scheduled date than when you're waiting around for labor. hope you're able to relax (just relax, ha!) and enjoy the last few days.

I wouldn't expect it to be any other way.

Of course you've got the jitters and I'm sure it's probably more excitement than scared (although sometimes they are both). It's like stage fright only 10x more. You are getting ready to meet one of the most important people in your life!

Congratulations and get some good sleep. You'll need it. And you will be an awesome mom!
