It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want too....

So today is supposed to be a happy day. I am another year older and just 2.5 weeks away from my due date with my first baby with my most amazing boyfriend. However it seems I can't stop crying. I am miserable. I can't walk I can't drive I can't sleep I throw up almost everything I eat laying down isn't even an option at this point and to top it all off I ad contractions for 48 hours 12 minutes apart and didn't dilate at all. My Dr did a sweep and the contractions stopped. Seriously. All I want for my birthday is to have this baby and to be able to walk again! Ugh. I have been saying for months I was just not cut out for this and the farther along I get the more I realize how true that really is.

Awe, I'm so sorry you feel so bad and that your contractions have stopped! Hopefully, things will be looking up very soon!
With my first, I also had a birthday almost exactly two weeks before my due date. I never went into labor before my csection (at 39.5 weeks), bit I remember how emotional it was to actually turn a year older before having the baby.  Not to mention, the new prince was born right  on birthday & that's all anyone could talk about. & I was still VERY pregnant! Hang in there. You are so close!

Happy birthday Rachel! My day got a lot better thank goodness. My boyfriend is the most amazing man ever and I couldn't be any more lucky to have him and my daughter is going to have thr best daddy ever! He surprised me with a dozen pink roses (for baby girl) and an hr amd a half prenatal massage and a facial followed up with a manicure and spa pedicure! Then my mom cooked us dinner of cheesey chicken tacos and we hung out at her house for the evening. It was perfect and I feel a lot better!

Thanks for all the support ladies. I am an emotional mess these days!
