I am now going to the doctor weekly until his birth.
Which means I get to hear his heartbeat once a week. yayyy
At this weeks appointment she did a vaginal check.
(which is no fun)
She said my cervix was thinning and everything was looking good.
The babies heartbeat was strong,
she is almost positive he is facing down- which is such a good thing!
My blood pressure and weight were good!
Next week we go in for an ultrasound to see our little one.
I am counting down the days.
Aaron and I are making bets on how much he weighs.
Ok I am convinced I have a one in a million belly button-
please tell me if anyone else's belly button ever like folded in half.
I don't even know how to describe it.
I can stick my finger into it- it's still deep-
but the top part of it is like folding down??
I have looked at other peoples pregnant bellies-
(ok that came out wrong) ha
but their belly buttons just look flat or they poke out?
Mine is just a "special one" as Aaron says haha
This week I had "one of those days"
I think I have done pretty well overall,
considering the fact that pregnancy makes your hormones go crazy.
Lets be honest, you don't exactly feel like a million bucks every day.
But for the most part I feel like I have been really happy..
However I was sitting on the stairs putting my socks on to get ready for a run the other day when I realized I couldnt reach my right foot (meaning my belly had gotten too big -
(( I could reach it the day before))..
I let out a cry that probably sounded like I was going into labor,
but no... just couldn't reach my foot haha.
You will never know how that feels until one day it actually happens to you- trust me.
I wouldn't be suprised if you cried either.
Aaron came running to the rescue to see if everything was ok.
And then it just all went downhill.
I think the lack of sleep, Houston heat,
and fact that all I felt like doing was laying in bed and eating, got to me.
It was a meltdown to remember.
Thank you pregnancy!
The workers at Red Mango know my name.
I am proud to say that 3 of the last 4 days have been spent there.
My husband is such a trooper.
This week I made funfetti cake batter-
mearly just to eat the batter- didnt even bake the cake.
My families flights are booked to Houston for the babes!
Lets hope he comes within the 4 days they are here haha
if not then it will just be a little vacation.
(my mom is planning to stay for a week after he is born but the kiddos can't miss too much school)
My veggie intake is seriously lacking.
The extent of my veggies is an occasional corn on the cob-
or the piece of lettuce they put on my subway sandwich.
Broccoli just doesn't sound appealing these days.
(lets be honest- it never has sounded appealing and pregnancy just magnifys that)
I am counting on my pre natals to fulfill those nutrients ha.
I made it through the night last night without a bathroom break-
(which was a first in a long time)
only to wake up and feel like I was going to explode.
I must have been in a deep a coma last night.
My dreams are all about babies, labor, and more babies.
Aaron loves hearing the latest each morning when I wake up.
I call him my little basketball.
I find myself holding my tummy everywhere.
Partly to feel him kick, but also just to hold it.
He kicks like crazy for daddy each night-
and all day long.
I think he knows his voice??
We are truly so happy.
Pregnancy is like waiting 9 months for the ultimate best Christmas present.
I feel so blessed to be this little one's mommy.
Each night I tell him how much I love him- so he better know that when he gets here!
Every bathroom break, meltdown, and prenatal vitamin-
it's ALL worth it.
Mommy loves you!!!!!
P.S. if you have posted or written a birth story-
I guarantee I have read it.
I am so fascinated and read them daily.
Thank you thank you!
