yucky feeling today

So, something super strange is going on with my body today. I woke up with an extreme amount of pressure right at my pelvic bone. When I walk around the pressure seems to intensify. I had been having contractions over the weekend that have had me stop in my tracks, but they have not been consistant. This pressure is in the same place as the contractions but doesn't feel the same. After a few minutes of walking, hoping Ashalyn would maybe try a new position of laying the pressure remained but was accompanied by vomiting yet again. So far the sick feeling really hasnt left and I had a little dizzy spell not too long ago. I am sort of hoping maybe all this is just my body getting ready to go into labor. However, it is still a little early. I am only 32 1/2 weeks and want to at least try to make it to the 36 week mark, but if guarenteed she's healthy I wouldn't mind delivering earlier. I am ready for the pressure to go away, the vomitting, and the constant questions much longer do you have, you really are starting to look pregnant (no duh), wow, you look like you've dropped majorly, the other day I just got done throwing up and someone says, "how you been feeling lately?" if I have to tell you!! Anyways, that's enough of that....just really not sure why I feel so different today!!
I had the first of my many baby showers yesterday. It was a fun little time with family and friends. As I was opening gifts I come to a present that had a card that looked a LOT like my husbands writing. Thought that was odd. I opened it up and sure enough it was from Nicholas. Just wanted to send a little something thanking me again for giving him our baby. It was the willow tree ornament "our gift" with mom, dad and baby! He bought me one for our wedding and one when i found out I was pregnant and now one for baby!! :-) He is so great!! It was a nice little surprise and it got all the ladies saying aww! We got lots of adorable little outfits for Ashalyn and I think she definately is going to be "just a little" spoiled!! :-)
Well, i think that's all for now! Just thought i'd update again!!

When Cayman turned head down in me, I felt a lot like you described-pressure in the pelvis, hurt to walk. Do you know if Ashalyn is head down?

I still really wish I could have come to your shower. I looked at the clock at 1:15 p.m. yesterday and still debated about quickly getting around and coming. I think the reason why Cayman is feeling a little under the weather is because of the new supplements she's on from the Naturopathist. It's clearing out a lot of the junk that is in her system. They're working, but it's like a canker-sore...gets worse before it gets better. Silly baby, I'm going to have to stop telling her my agenda. It seems if she knows it ahead of time then she's determined to change it :o).

Love ya girl!!

Oh I understand how ready you feel! I think it's a good idea to have at least 36 weeks in your mind. You definitely don't want her to come too early. The NICU is not the place you want your baby...she's meant to be in your room right next next to you, then going home with you a few days after that. Hang in there a little bit longer. The sacrifices you make in being pregnant a few more weeks will be well worth the wait!! Don't "will" it to happen early. Just look at each day, and get through it. Don't look too far ahead and count how many weeks are left. All that'll do is make you want to reach up and pull Ashalyn out yourself!

Hang in there girl! The end is near.
