Whew what a week! I have kind of an…interesting story to tell you, but I am going to save it for it’s own post tomorrow, but yes it has to deal with the pregnancy, and a trip to the hospital, ssoooo stay tuned.
Symptoms: Things are progressing people! Baby M has definitely dropped, I can breathe a lot better than I have been able to, but I have had to go to the bathroom ALL THE TIME. Also feeling pressure “down there”, lots of nesting instincts, and I have slowed wwaayyy down. I’m not as achy in my hips or back as I have been, I think her dropping has changed the pressure points she had on my body for so long. Uptick in gas and slight constipation this week as well. I have been trying to stay off my feet to keep swelling to a minimum. It’s SO dang hot here, I don’t feel like moving much or even venturing outside anyway. I have been getting up at night every two hours (getting used to it for when baby comes?) and have been wide awake around 4:00 every morning this week. Weird.
Baby’s Size: Coconut!
Maternity Clothes: I bought a dress on sale last week without trying it on (fail) and it looks awful on me, so it will be going back.
Stretch Marks: nothing new
Sleep: very broken, taken a couple of naps this week
Miss anything: My sanity. Oh, it counts.
Aversions: A lot of stuff. Hot food. It’s so hot here I don’t want to eat much.
35 weeks vs. 31 weeks, you can see how much I have dropped! I used to just stick straight out.
Looking forward to: Honestly, getting this baby on the OUTSIDE of me. I want her to bake another couple weeks, but I am ready for this stage to be over.
What I’m loving: EVERYONE things I’m “about to pop” at “anytime” and I love the looks on their faces when I tell them I’m only 35 weeks. I think they feel sorry for me.
Workouts: Yeah, about that….
Be sure to come back tomorrow for the “story” I have to tell.
QOTD: When did you drop when you were pregnant?
Who has had less of an appetite because of the heat?
