Just a Thought

This thought very accurately sums up how I've been feeling the last few days. Although I realize the truthfulness of this statement, I fear I fit into the miserable category at the moment.

Here are a few basic stats about my life right now:
Today I'm 38 weeks, 4 days pregnant.
I delivered Hudson at 38 weeks, 5 days.
My official due date is October 25.
My doctor scheduled an induction for November 3.
{Um, if I'm still pregnant by November 3rd, I'm not going to need to be induced--I'll need to be shot}.

In other news, I've recently gone on an internet cleanse. Not on purpose, but mostly because I'm cranky and don't want to burden other people with my perpetual bad mood. I've forsaken Facebook, I've turned my back on Twitter, and I've completely ignored my blog. And through it all, I've learned a few things. I don't need all of these social outlets to be happy. In fact, my life is surprisingly simple and quite delightful without all the clutter and nonsense. Not to say that I'm giving it all up for good...but I'm going in search of a happier medium. Needless to say, there will be some changes (nothing drastic, though) to my blog in the coming weeks and months. If you'd like to see more or less of anything, now's your chance.

Hope you're all in a better mood than I am today.

Oh....I feel for you. The last month is another kind of miserable entirely. Hang in there. To be honest, I always tried to remind myself that there are perks to still having the baby inside. Hopefully we'll hear happy news very, very soon.

wishing you happy days christina. i don't know what it feels like to be pregnant and all the emotions that tag alone with it, but i know that sometimes life gets a little sucky and we get a little down. i hope you get up very soon.

in hopes of getting you "up" i'm going to tell you a secret... {i've got a present for your little one}. can't wait to send it to you! ;)

Hang in there-I know how miserable the last weeks can be! Just try and relax.And I agree, the internet can be overwhelming at times. We all need a little break every now and then. We'll be waiting for you when you come back.

you are SO close. keep on keepin' on. It will be here before you know it and then you will say "oh, remember when we just had one child how easy that was"... Nov 3 is a good day... my oldests' birthday!

Glad to hear you are stepping back from the web a bit, I think we all need to do that from time to time!
