Why Am I Still Pregnant

Lord, why am I still pregnant?! I have gained 7 lbs since Wednesday. All water, all in my legs. It’s getting harder and harder to move my toes. Or bend my ankles. My blood pressure was 164/99 when I arrived at the doctor today. After an hour and a half, it was down to 146/74. Better, but not good. There’s protein in my urine which means more preeclampsia testing. Also, I’m not dilated enough to schedule an induction for Monday. Unless I do have preeclampsia. Is it wrong that my fingers are crossed?

Maybe it is. But I’m exhausted. This pregnancy has drained me dry. I’m running on empty. My body aches, and I just want this chapter to be over.


The weather is finally getting nice up here. If only I could go for a walk! At least the baby should be here by planting time. I can’t wait to get my veggies in the ground. There’s nothing quite like eating a salad you grew yourself!

  1. I had preeclampsia with my first two pregnancies. The doctor told me to stay off my feet and mainly rest on my left side. Yes, pray always and never give up. You will have this baby and this baby will be beautiful.
