Happy Happy Friday!
Today officially marks ONE MONTH UNTIL OUR DUE DATE!
We’ll be 36 weeks on Sunday, and I am getting both more and more excited, and more and more nervous as the days fly by. Yesterday I made the mistake of watching a birth video, and I’m starting to wonder if I can really do this thing! I’ve decided it’s going to suck no matter which way she comes out, like, really, really suck, but it’s time to put on my big girl panties and get ready! The thought of what is physically going to happen to my body in a few weeks is enough to make me cringe. Just being honest here, folks.
Week 35 has been pretty much like the last few…feeling large and in charge, heavy, uncomfortable, heartburn is out of control, I have to pee every two seconds, and I can barely keep my eyes open come 8 o’clock, and yet by the time I crawl into bed, I can’t sleep anyways.
I did experience a new symptom this week though – round ligament pain. No fun! One night it was so bad I laid on the couch and didn’t move for about 3 hours, googling everything I could think of, and texting one of my fellow pregnant best friends (who’s actually due the day after us!). We came to the conclusion that it was probably RLP, and to drink a lot of water. It eventually stopped, but the sharp, shooting pains were definitely a new experience!
We also completely finished her nursery this week, and I’m so happy with how it turned out. I had envisioned it being a very neutral, simple room, and I think we accomplished that. Hoping Adeline likes it too!
Our next Dr’s appointment is next Thursday, which is the start of our weekly appointments. We’ll be almost 37 weeks though by that point, so I’m ready to find out what position she’s in, even though I do think she’s already head down, or at least on her way to being head down! Fingers crossed!
Here are a few more highlights from this week…
Baby girl will be here in 4 weeks or less, assuming we don’t go past our due date, which of course is very much a possibility! My gut tells me she’ll be here before our due date, but there’s no way to know for sure! I feel like I’m planning an epic party, but I don’t know when the guests are showing up. Or, I’m planning my wedding without a date!
Either way, these next 4 weeks are sure to include lots of rest, cleaning the house, dates with Adam, and soaking up every little kick and roll while I still can. I’ve been very blessed to have a healthy pregnancy, and I can’t believe it’s almost over!
