I am officially 35 weeks pregnant today. I can't believe it. I am definitely feeling the anxiety and anxiousness of having a baby soon. Here are some updates...
-I have gained like 23 pounds
-Heartburn is my worst enemy
-The baby is super active and moves all over the place, all of the time
-I am pretty sure the baby is in good position, head down and ready to go
-I am pretty uncomfortable, but that is to be expected. My hips and low back hurt a lot. I am grateful for a good chiropractor and a a good prenatal massage every once in a while
-I feel waves of nausea and exhaustion, but it is not all of the time
-I get up to pee 3-4 times a night
-I feel pretty light headed and see sparkly stars floating around a lot, but I felt that way with Ryan too. I have to be extra careful with what I eat and drinking plenty of water
-I am still working a lot. One more week in the office and then one week after that for hair and then I am finally done!! I am soooooo over it, but circumstances are crazy and I don't get a true maternity leave, so I am trying to work as much as possible. Hopefully I can get some relax time before the baby is born.
-Baby has the hiccups very often, such a weird feeling
-Hypnobirthing classes and preparation is going well. I am happy we decided to do this.
-Life has been super crazy the last week weeks... more about that in the next post. But I am doing well staying calm and going with the flow!
I am starting to get anxious/anxiety about the baby. Of course I am excited, but I am also well aware of what life is like with a new born. Ryan gave me such a hard time as a baby... colic, hours and hours of crying, didn't sleep for months, trouble breastfeeding, eczema, awful cradle cap....he just was not an easy, happy baby by any means. I know all babies are different, but I"m nervous to start the process again. I am kind of envious of new moms expecting their first child, because they have no idea whats about the change lol. Plus its just so hard to believe its actually here... this pregnancy went SOOOO fast. I have gotten so comfortable with our family of 3, that I can't imagine what life will be like with our new dynamic.
I know these are all normal worries for pregnant moms, but I had to get it off my chest!
