Thirty-Nine Plus

Katy took this belly shot, and I think that things from her perspective look even more extreme. But I suppose I'm less than a week from my due date, so extreme they should be.
Yesterday I was feeling content with my situation, happy to go until next week and beyond, and feeling like I wasn't so miserable and desperate that I couldn't wait. THEN I went to my OB appointment. Found out that I still hadn't made any further progress. And that if I make it until my appointment next Thursday, they'd schedule an induction for the following week.
For some reason this got to my head. All I heard from that was, "Blah blah blah, TWO MORE WEEKS."
I know that there's a good chance that I will go on my own before they schedule an induction, but I just feel so tired and ready to be done, that it felt discouraging. Of course, I'm trying to appreciate the sleep that I'm getting right now and the time that I have left with just Katy and David. But there's also a part of me that is just struggling with the mental game of, "Now? Baby? Is that it? No? How about now? Or now?"
But I know. He'll come when he's ready. This is the home stretch.

Melanie was a week past her due date. I remember mostly being tired of people saying "are you STILL pregnant?" Like they had to mention it!
