I had an OB* appointment today (I'm at the point where I go in weekly), the medical assistant who showed me the room and worked on my chart asked if I wanted the Doctor to check my cervix and sweep my membranes.

My response? "Why? Is there a need?" "No, its just a standard question at this point in pregnancies...its up to you." "No thanks." I then thought, Heck no, I need this little bug to stay in until Friday. I'll do that next week.

But the question made me realize, I really am near the end. Within the next week or two, I'll have another baby in my arms. Oy! I'm looking forward to meeting him and loving and kissing him, but it doesn't seem quite possible that I'm that close to the end. Its gone waaaaaay too fast. But, we are ready. The kids are more anxious than I am. They are very disappointed whenever I pick them up from somewhere. "Why is Grayson still in your tummy? I'm tired of waiting!"

I can honestly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed this pregnancy. Yes, its had it moments (lots more porcelain goddess worshiping than I'd like, but hey, thems the breaks) but, for the most part, its been a VERY easy pregnancy. Maybe I'm just comparing it to the twins, but Ike's was pretty much this easy as well. I told Joe last night, that I'm feeling physically (sore hips, energy levels, aching back) like I did when I was only halfway through with the girls. What a difference! I've only made 2 trips to L&D (the second one after dinner on Easter) unlike the last two times. I'm healthy, my BP is normal, I'm fairly rested, my hot tub is functional and I'm NOT depressed.

I'm ready for the next adventure to begin.

*Sidenote: My OB is on vacation, I got to see the OB who delivered Ike, and then discharged me from the hospital after having the girls. When I pointed that out to him he responded "That's why you seem familiar. I don't think I've ever seen you in the clinic. Thank you for telling me."
