Am I ready to be done?

So it is no secret that I do not love being pregnant, that being said I have been wondering lately if I am ready to have a newborn.  It has been 3 1/2 years since I have had a newborn, have I forgotten what to do?  I am more nervous for the labor and delivery than I remember being with my others.  My friend told me that just means that I am not uncomfortable enough yet, I beg to differ.  I am not going to miss my really swollen legs, it seems like they have been swollen forever and the heat is not helping!  Last night I had my lower legs crossed and when I uncrossed them I had a huge indentation that did not go away for over 1/2 hour.   I will not miss the insomnia that I seem to have had for the last 2 months.  At least I am hoping that it goes away and although I know that I will be getting up with the baby I am hoping that I will at least be able to go to sleep!
I was able to run through most of my pregnancy but stopped a few weeks ago because it was getting really uncomfortable, I miss it.  I know most of you think that I am crazy but i find myself driving down the street envious of all the runners that I pass.
It is strange to look at my kids now and imagine loving another as much as I love these three crazies but I know that soon enough I will not be able to imagine life without her.  So here is to the last little bit of pregnancy, there is a light at the end of the tunnel

I understand everything you said. I too am uncomfortable, but an not ready for a newborn. I am not a runner like you, but I too envy the runners I see. It is nice to know I am not alone in my feelings. I am only 30 weeks along and by the end of the day I am ready to be done. You are so close now, I'll keep checking back to your blog for the big arrival news :)
