I cannot believe how fast this pregnancy is going! Seven weeks from yesterday I will be having a c-section and get to meet our little girl!
FEELING: Still feeling pretty good for the most part! I have been having hip pain when I stay in the same position for too long. Sleep is hit or miss. I wake up several times a night. But, since I have had kids I don’t think I have ever slept ALL night long. I usually am up at least once for either the bathroom or making sure the kiddos are tucked in.
Other then my intense need for a nap almost EVERY day (one perk of staying home), I’m attributing feeling pretty good compared to this time in my last pregnancies to my working out 4-6 days a week. Now…..this has REALLY slowed down. I am more like 2-3 times a week. And, honestly if I can get moving a few times a week I am happy with that. Most importantly I still feel strong and healthy. Cardio is basically a thing of the past. My lungs are so crowded by baby girl. I will be happy when she drops a bit so I can take a deep breath!
WARDROBE: I have my ‘dress’ leggings and my ‘casual’ leggings…..I hope I’m not the only one! I mostly wear leggings, a cami and open cardigan or sweater. It has been super warm (ish) here in Michigan and I have been enjoying not having to squeeze myself into a winter jacket!
CRAVING: Junk food. Sadly that is all I want. I still love my smoothies, but I am really trying to reign myself in with everything I want to eat! I also don’t have much room (thanks to her squeezing my insides) so I have to eat small portions or I feel sick.
OVERALL: I am so excited and also a little nervous. With so many things going on in our household: baby, getting ready to sell our house, and getting ready to move! I don’t have much time to worry. Charlie (4.5) is so excited to meet ‘sissy’. I hope he still feels the same way if she wakes him up with her crying at night. Henry (20) months has no idea what is going on. He will kiss my belly and say baby….but I am not sure it is actually connecting.
Less then two months! Let the countdown begin!!
