I'm at that point. Anyone with a fork can stick it in me, because I'm just done. I had a few days between baby dropping enough that my lungs weren't being used for soccer practice, and baby dropping more to the point that it feels like she's in the bones of my pelvis. Those were physically decent days. It was actually kind of nice to be able to get some things done. Now I can't even bend over to get anything off the floor. It feels like she's sitting at the exit waiting for the green light but she fell asleep at the wheel and doesn't see the signals lol. I know I'm impatient and have 2 more weeks till my due date. People at work have been amazed that I'm still working. I may as well work and earn a paycheck versus sitting at home doing nothing. At least walking around I might get baby out sooner than later. The doctor checked me at my appointment Tuesday and I'm dilated 1 cm, if that. But for me that's progress because I generally don't dilate till last minute anyway. She asked how I felt about induction and I told her that I am not opposed to it but didn't feel it was needed in my case, or at least right now. She said they don't like to do it before 39 weeks and if I'm still pregnant at my next appointment Monday, we'll revisit the topic again. On Monday I may be in a mood to ask "is now good for you?" lol.
I think that all the hip and sciatic issues I had in the middle of my pregnancy really wore on me and now that my hips popped back into place on their own a few weeks ago, it's been tolerable but rather uncomfortable. I'm moody and whiny and Saturday I hid in my bed as much as possible to avoid spilling my vile mood on anyone else. My camera also konked out on me, and for now I'm borrowing my sister's till I can decide on a new one. (That and stroller shopping).
On the brighter side of things, someone I know from FLYLady chats sent me a sweet gift for Thumper. It's a small ceramic trinket of a baby in a basket with a small baby rosary inside. DD7 loves it, as well as the one I got at my baby shower from a friend who is also part of the rosary ministry with me. I had to give dd back the shamrock rosary I made for her but sort of absconded with it because I like it so much. I have the beads to make my own lol...perhaps I should be doing that with my idle time?

I'm just biding my time and trying to remain patient. It's obviously not one of my strong qualities. I got through the misery of all that hip pain, I can get through this little bit of discomfort. I just don't like it is all ;)

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
