**I dont even have a good post name**

Without going into the depressing details, I just want to say the past five days have been TERRIBLE. I feel like I am living a nightmare that continues to get worse each day. I dont want to think about it anymore and I am going to try to post this blog about the excitment in my life and try my very best to forget the last five days!

This week we have our 38 week appointment, I cannot believe that lil man is expected in only 2 weeks! Where has the time gone?!? I am still on bed rest, which seems to be exactly what I needed. My blood pressure remains good and my swelling is 110% better. I am now just waiting on lil man to make his move. Of corse I am hoping for it hourly...haha the anxiety is soooo bad! I am hoping that the appointment this week we will get answers from the doctor on Brody's progress! Contractions def seem to be getting more and more intense, however that could be from stress as well. My waters haven't broke yet and my contractions are still irregular so nothing more really to report as far as his arrival. I just pray all the stress has not effected him. I have been pretty good about not letting it get to me and staying calm...well until today. I really dont know what hit me but I broke down and called my mom hysterical. I know she is probably thinking "those crazy pregnancy hormones" but I for the past five days have not let it out and it just came out today.

I will keep you all posted on Life with the Dawkins (I feel like everything that has happened to us is just a bad reality tv series) and lil man's progress. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, they are SO VERY MUCH needed!

Hang in there, I don't know what it's like to be in your shoes but just keep your head up and think that one day you'll look back on this and laugh, and Brody will be here then!
