Swollen fingers

Swollen toes and ankles (complete with sock wrinkles)

I must be at 37 weeks!

I feel like I'm standing in line for a really scary roller coaster ride. One where I will be flipped upside-down numerous times and sent screaming down incredibly steep hills. There's a strong possibility that I could collapse, faint or puke. As I'm standing in line, I'm excited and nervous and breathless. My mind is screaming "Are you nuts?! Get out of line!" but I know that I can't. So I just stand there with sweaty palms and a stupid grin on my face.

And the only thought in my mind is "Can I get on the ride now?" Can I please start labor now? Please?

Once the ride begins, you'll be saying "Ok, I'm not ready for this. Can I go home now?" Hehehehe...

Seriously though, I'm getting excited for you too!

Enjoy these last few weeks. Soon it will all be a distant memory as your new life begins. :)

I love the belly pic!
The anticipation is nuts, isn't it?!?!
I agree with Traci.
As soon as the ride begins, you will say "holy %$*#! I changed my mind!"
At least, that's what Lois said! LOL

What a great analogy! Exciting and scary all at the same time. For me the swelling started at 35 weeks and got horrible AFTER delivery. I was HUGE!!! Just for a day or so though.
