I’m here, but playing the waiting game at this point. Trying to take it really easy (not a problem). Here I am at 38 weeks.
Symptoms: cramping, difficulty sleeping and stuffiness. Nausea sometimes. Back pain while walking – just feeling huge!
Weekly highlights: got my hair and nails done (whoop!). Amazing how a little boost helps you feel better about yourself, especially when SUPER preggo.
Food Cravings/Aversions: sweet things leave a gross taste in my mouth and I’m definitely eating more meat than when not pregnant. Generally food is meh… lots of eggs, yogurt and La Croix basically.
Wishing: we had a name settled and that she will be a good sleeper; too much to ask?!
Wanting: to do a “real” work out, all the Betty Designs gear (obsessed lately), a glass of wine or a margarita!
Activities: Most days I start with a short workout and try to get some walking in, but by the afternoon it’s a nap and sitting around. Not my preference, but once I’m on my feet for a long period I get tired. I did do a few marathon cooking sessions – freezer foods + baked goods for our new neighbors. Other than that, rest! Nathan is 2.5 years and is a lot of fun, I wish I could keep up with him just a little more. He’s doing swim class on Saturday mornings now.
Loving: A little extra time with Nathan; we took a mom & son visit to Blake Gardens a couple days ago. Since I’ve had pre-partum leave we’ve had a lot more time together to do fun things like go to the farm, walks, etc.
Maybe next post will be an introduction to our little lady!
