It's almost time

Ok, so I am not due until December 22, but I am seriously doubting right now that I am going to make it. My braxton hicks are getting worst by the day. I am now starting to get a lot of pain and pressure down below. I cannot stand any more for more than a few moment without getting dizzy. I am hoping that either he will come on his own or that the doctors will induce. I know that he will be premature, but my body cannot handle this pregnancy anymore. My poor children are suffering, and my husband is having to pick up on a lot of slack. I just don't know what to do. I meet with the specialists and cardiologist on the 21st. They will be doing more testing on his heart. I am not on a bedrest order from a doctor, but I am on bed rest. I cannot seem to do anything anymore. I just hate feeling like this. I hate feeling useless and like crap.​

I just don't remember feeling this badly with any of my other pregnancies. Usually by this point, I was actually doing more than what I can do now. The fact that I can barely get out of bed anymore scares me. All of my weight, sugar levels, blood test, and blood pressure has been fine. So I am not understanding the reasoning behind me feeling so horribly.

I try to be. Right now, I am not. My poor kids are suffering. The two babies had fun with me today on Skype with a friend. The think its too cool to see someone on the computer and to interact with them. Most of the time I spend with my kids right now is in my bed. They love it though, because they can bounce and flip around like its a trampoline, and I don't say too much. Thankful for friends and family who help make sure they feel loved. I need this one to come soon, so I can get back to my usual self. The house is trashed, and I don't think we have had a home cooked meal in a week. I hate being down.
