Cry me a river

I am 38 weeks and 1 day pregnant. Which means I have started my 39th week. And I'm getting less than happy about that.

I have two main concerns about the end of my pregnancy: 1) I don't know what a contraction feels like and I am afraid I won't know until it's late in the game that I'm having them, and 2) I hate the waiting game. I could go into labor tonight, or it could be in 4 more weeks (my practice will let me go to 42 weeks before inducing). I really do not want a c-section, but I wish I got to schedule the day I would give birth! I'm not super type A, but I'm Aish enough to really want
a more specific time frame than "any time now".

So not only am I big, uncomfortable, tired, and still working full time, but I have the added anxiety about when I will go into labor and if I will recognize it in time for me to drive 35 minutes to the hospital (in no traffic) and get an epidural.

oh, trust me dear, you will know what a contraction is. it feels like a wicked bad menstrual cramp. also, don't believe people who tell you that you might not know when your water breaks. again, YOU'LL KNOW.
