Well, I finally feel VERY pregnant and I am not even at the 30 week mark! EEEK! How am I going to last another 7-11 weeks of pregnancy? With this in mind, I have made it my goal and ambition to have this baby by 37 weeks on September 3. I am quite ambitious, so I don’t know why I can’t make this happen. With my first pregnancy, I wanted Baby to be late. I was just not ready! This time, I am ready. Kind of. At least I think I am ready … or that I will be ready. I will do everything in my power to influence and convince this Baby that September 3 is a great day to be born.
But at the same time, I will try to be patient and accept whatever lot in life I am dealt. For now, I am going to concentrate on sleeping during nap time, staying awake during awake time, and enjoying summer and my toddler.
Belly button – out or in: Flat and creepy looking!
Stretch marks: None to date.
Gender prediction: Lots of my friends are having boys, so I think I am having a girl based on odds and statistics. But, as this pregnancy has been so different, I can’t help but wonder!!
Baby names: We simply cannot agree on names. And I am having SOOO much trouble finding boys names I like! I have request my husband review our (my?) list of names starting at 30 weeks!
Sleep: I miss it. Ohhhh I miss it. I have always been a sensitive sleeper, but I am up every 2-3 hours these days. Either I am too hot, my allergies are bothering me, I need to pee, I am uncomfortable or my super sensory hearing thinks I hear a newborn. FUN!
What I miss: Sleeping on my back and stomach.
What I am looking forward to: Having this baby.
Maternity clothes: I have a new favourite T-shirt, it says “I’m so pregnant”. The only, down side? It’s black. And “I’m so hot!” (pun intended).
Aches and pains update (aka complaining): If I haven’t mentioned it, I will mention it now. I have felt extremely emotional this pregnancy – irritable, anxious, angry,weepy … the list goes on. I am a whirl wind of emotions (sorry everyone). I went to the naturopath where she gave me some chamomile to help keep me calm, some “emergency” pills for when I have cramping, and some much needed advice!
I am going to make an appointment for a mobile massage during Hazel’s nap time. I have been going to the chiropractor every week, but massage and chiropractor go hand in hand in my opinion!
Nesting: My mom and I are going to Fabricland to choose some fabric for Hazel’s toddler room quilt. I am SO excited. I have a few creative projects I want to start, but I am just too tired! I think I will have to make it an appointment in my calendar so I have time set aside. I hope there is a rainy day on the fore so I can cuddle up and get crackin’!
