Woah momma

So far October has flown by. We are more than halfway through and I feel like I blinked. Every day the kids look forward to walking back to Libbys with their cousins. We end up hanging out for a while and sometimes I end up falling asleep on her couch. There is not much better than having your sister live right up the street from you and have your kids be best friends. Natalie and Taylor, Courtney and Charlotte, boots and Braden- they are all best buddies!!  It also makes it a lot easier for me when I don't have to be at the school to pick him up, I know they will ride their bike or walk back to auntie Libby's house. I'm sure she hates it as my kids get back and just want to snack on everything and anything they can! 

Today I had my 36 week doctor appointment. Everything is looking good. I am dilated to a one and the baby is Wayne just under 7 pounds. I guess that scares me because I potentially have almost 4 weeks left before I deliver this baby and that is a lot of weight to gain. Courtney was 9 lbs. 4 oz. which was not expected from the doctor. I have also asked to be induced but she won't do it more than four days before my due date. I know I will try all as my old tricks about a week before my due date. There is no way I can go full-term or even passed 39 weeks.
I have been trying to walk more and more but it is getting very hard and slow. I think the baby has dropped and I am in a lot of pain. My feet are very swollen and therefore very sore To walk around. I have to get up at least twice in the night to go to the bathroom, and I get leg or stomach cramps. I cannot sleep with less than four pillows, and I have to keep my tums beside my bedside table. Realistically I would love a foot massage every single night... But of course I know that's not gonna happen. 
My awesome amazing sister came over last night and did my dishes for an hour and then cleaned and rubs my feet with lotion. She is so thoughtful and knows exactly what I need and when I need it. Again I love having my sister here.

that last pic you look like you've dropped. I'm sure baby will come soon. Just keep reminding yourself of the good that comes at the end of all the pain and discomfort. I'm sorry - I feel for you! GOOD LUCK!!!!
