SO CLOSE! A part of me feels like I’ve been pregnant for an eternity but on the other hand, I can’t believe we’re a week away from her due date.
Physically, I feel fine. Mentally, it’s another story . I’m pretty good for the most part. I just go in and out of being super anxious which makes me a bit emotional. I get really excited (I’m always excited) but then sometimes I feel irritable for no reason. This morning I just woke up like that…why? I have no idea. I think these whirlwind emotions are just stemming from the fact that I’m anxious to have her. I know it can “technically” happen any time, but I also realize it could be another few weeks if she’s late. Few weeks? It’s crazy after 9 months how a few weeks can sound like forever. Don’t do that to us baby!
Anyway, here’s a picture we took this morning (looking pretty beat):
By the way, I feel like a pumpkin. Not a small one either.
Here’s an awkward belly picture!
Someone needs a tan bad!
Here’s a little breakdown of how life as a super pregnant lady is goin:
Total weight gain: Almost 30 poundos
Maternity clothes? Of course. Do people not wear maternity clothes at 39 weeks?
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: It’s okay. I’ve been getting up like, 4-5 times a night to go to the bathroom which is a little inconvenient. Sometimes it helps though because my hip hurts so I feel like walking around makes it better.
Best moment this week: Doctor’s appointment! She estimated the baby is around 6 1/2 pounds right now. So big!
Miss Anything? Yeah..I’m ready to be back to “normal.”
Movement: Yeah. She just feels so crammed now almost like she can barely move.
Food cravings: Just York peppermint patties and Junior Mints…I think I crave those anyway though.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks! They feel a bit like menstrual cramps these days which is different than earlier in the pregnancy.
Belly Button in or out? Kind of out. Weird stuff going on there.
Wedding rings on or off? Off. Fingers are way too fat.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, excited, anxious. A little moody.
Symptoms: Lots of standard symptoms. Nothing too crazy though at this point.
Looking forward to: Her coming!! I want to know when!
Exercise: Haven’t been to the gym this week (it’s actually closed right now for maintenance). I did go to yoga though and plan to go again this weekend. It feels pretty good, especially after. I’ve also been going on walks to stay a little active.
So, all is well. Just want her to come already!! I’m thinking she will come this weekend on Labor day…that’d be perfect right?
What are you Labor Day plans? I plan to take it literally and go into labor!!
