41 Weeks: We're 102.5% of the way there! Sigh...
I have been trying to be very patient but I am really becoming amazed at how many symptoms can come with pregnancy! And can't believe I ever talked back or disrespected my own mom! :) I always knew she "had brought me into this world and could take me out" but I never realized how much it took to get me here until now! The past few weeks I have had a sharp pain in my thigh and butt and it makes my leg feel really weak like it's about to give out. Apparently this fun new symptom is called sciatica. (The sciatic nerve is a long nerve that runs from the lower back to the back of the legs and feet and the weight of the baby can cause it to become inflamed).
But I am so grateful to be pregnant and so excited to become Mary Harper's mommy that when I get too uncomfortable I just try to remind myself that it will all be worth it once I finally have Mary Harper in my arms...WHICH SHOULD BE THIS WEEK!! :)
