Okay, I’m no longer waddling, I’m doing the split while walking. I don’t know exactly how to describe how I’m walking, but I can no longer keep my legs together while walking at all. I can’t sit comfortably to save my life. I can’t stand for long without feeling like I’m going to pass out. I am having a hard time breathing.
Last night, I tried to go to bed early since hubby was actually in agreement about doing it, and I couldn’t breath in our bedroom to save my life. It literally felt like my chest was going to explode. I got up and went and laid down on the couch (where it was cooler.) I ended up falling asleep there. Only to have Peppermint wake up and realize I was missing and come hunt me down. Of course, she had to lick my toes showing me that she was happy to be back with me, and that woke me up. So, I tried to go lay down with my hubby again. I managed to go to sleep, but I woke up A LOT last night. I don’t remember the last time I went to sleep and stayed asleep for more than a few hours at a time. I guess Zeva is getting me ready for her feeding time schedule for when she’s born.
I’ve been having the desire to clean like crazy. Of course, I also know there is no reason to clean the house with my boys awake. Even if I do clean, it won’t last long. I did do some of it. However, I know I won’t do a lot of cleaning even when I do get started because it HURTS to move at all!!
Am I the only one who has this much trouble doing things at the end of their pregnancy? How did you know you were in labor?? What did you do right before going into labor?? Did you do anything to try and induce your labor???

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.
