I'm finding that the closer I get to having this baby, the busier I get which seems to make time go even faster (yikes)! With the past few weeks filled with family outings, activities, more play dates and lets not forget I'm a homeschooling mama, it just feels like my last trimester is whizzing by at light speed. My desire to dabble in social media has increasing become less & less important when compared to the things going on in my life. I do say this humbly; life's just to darn good right now and seriously, nothing else matters. While it seems like we're on the go a lot, I do like the business of all the fun stuff we've been doing but, I also love the simplicity of the days where I'm laying with all the loves of my life (including the one in my belly) to watch a movie and snuggle together. I can only imagine how amazing it'll be when we have these times together after our little one arrives.
As for my very pregnant self..
I've been on a huge fruit & veggie kick lately not only to stay healthy but honestly it's also been due to cravings. That's not to say I don't crave the occasional sweet treat believe me. I'm also way more sensitive & emotional lately, breaking down at the sight of every sappy commercial or movie.
Hip & pelvis issues have been present from the beginning of this pregnancy so I've been getting into prenatal yoga a few times a week to try to combat it. I'm still trying to decide if it's been more helpful or hurtful since I'm always pretty sore after but, for now I'm sticking with it.
I know I've said this before but really, I'm starting to feel huge! I know I'm not huge at all but, I'm feelin' it! I'm finally feeling that "lugging around a heavy sack at all times" feeling (I'm quite a sight
Weight gain has been quite slow still. I've only managed to put on a couple pounds since my last update but, I'm keeping mindful of it.
Babe's becoming really cramped inside me which can be noted by it's movements. I find myself sympathizing and apologizing to the poor little thing as I rub my belly saying things like "I know baby- It's getting tight in there, Mommy's so sorry." ;) Also he or she is quite the hiccupy child like it's big sister was. I feel the baby's hiccups sometimes five times a day. Though I feel kinda bad, I also think it's so cute!
(week31 *baby was sitting lower this day*)
Cravings- Granny Smith apples, arugula salads, pesto and blueberry pie (yes, I'm weird)
Weight Gain- 11 lbs
Movement?- Movement has been crazy! Because of the fact that this poor baby's becoming squished in there, all movements look extreme and limbs look like they're going to burst through my skin lol! You can be sitting across the room and CLEARLY see this baby moving through clothes and all.
Nesting- All the time and what's funny is I thinks Jeff's gone into nesting mode too :)
Baby Buys- I said I'd wait to buy anything till after the baby shower but I couldn't help myself. Latest buys have been some cloth diapers and a cute sleeper with a little lamb on it. I HAD to have it! We do plan on getting our birth pool this week but I don't think that really counts as a baby buy..
Totally Loving- Massages, belly rubs and belly kisses from Jeff, all the cuddles from Aizlynn, long showers, getting my toes done, feeling baby move and our sparkly, new iMac!
Not So Much- Just the aches and pains that come with getting further along and also having to run to bathroom in a moments notice or risk peeing myself lol! Hasn't happened yet but I'm scared it might someday..
Looking Forward to- My baby shower!
