Overdue

So I’m 41 weeks pregnant now.  I really, really hate being overdue.  I can’t get comfortable, sitting or lying down.  Pelvic girdle pain makes it excruciatingly painful to roll over in bed at night.  It also makes it difficult to get in and out of the car, or up and down the stairs.  The baby’s feet feel like they are permanently lodged in my ribcage.  I’ve been having prodromal labor on and off for over a week.  I have heartburn every night no matter what I eat.  It’s really hard to chase after my toddler, let alone pick him up.  It’s hard to try to keep him entertained in the house all day, but I really don’t have the energy to take him to the playground.  The house is a mess, and I hate it, but it’s difficult to work up the energy to do anything about it.  I know that part isn’t going to get any easier once the baby comes.

I know pregnancy doesn’t last forever, and I know I should be trying to enjoy these last days, especially since this might be my last pregnancy.  But right now, I’m just tired, and ready for it to be over.
