This little one is certainly growing and it’s starting to take a toll on me. I’ll have great days and harder days (I’m writing this during one of the harder days where different parts of my body are practically screaming at me and the measly Tylenol isn’t touching the aches. Ah, pregnancy.
I’m a little shocked I’m here already (34 weeks now that I’m writing this). At my last appointment my midwife said they wouldn’t do anything to stop labor if it were to happen now. CRAZY. We also finally kicked it up a notch at home and are getting things ready for this new little one. I think it’s finally sinking in that we’re having a baby. I know, you’d think after 34 weeks of this it would already be common knowledge, but nope. I’ve sort of been in denial this whole time, but all of a sudden I realized a baby could be here sooner or later…you know, now, or as late as eight more weeks from now (oh my gosh, that seems like FOREVER!)
….so I actually wrote everything above a week ago, and I’m 35 weeks now. It’s interesting how drastically different I can feel day-to-day. Today, for example, I feel good despite the fact that nesting has taken over my life. EVERYTHING has to be cleaned now. No, not now. Right this very second. I’m happy to say, though, that my husband and I (mostly him) have crossed just about everything off my silly to-do list. I’m also very much enjoying my nightly bath tub soaks. That warm water (and tons of bubbles, of course) is so unbelievably therapeutic and the best way to spend the final hours of my day.
But enough about that…here are five weeks worth of bump pictures.
