I went to the doctor this week thinking I was 34 weeks—turns out I was 35 and I just had it in my head wrong! Part of me was like “Yay-one less week!” The other part of me freaked out a little and was like “Gah! I just lost a week!” That’s where I am right now with this pregnancy. I’m super excited to finally meet this little boy, but at the same time I’m super nervous to have a newborn again and I haven’t even started getting ready for his arrival!
For a little comparison, I put on the same shirt and took a few shots to compare to last time
Left is 29 weeks and on the right is 35 weeks.
It’s amazing how just 6 weeks so much can change!
Clothes are becoming a problem since not too many of them are long enough to go over this big belly.
Everything is more uncomfortable now-although I think I finally found the magic pillow combination and it’s been working for the last 3 nights! It’s still hard to get comfy on the couch and other chairs though.
Heartburn is starting earlier in the day and is tough to get rid of throughout the day. I just bought my 3rd bottle of tums—actually I bought 2 smaller bottles and put one upstairs so I wouldn’t have to drag myself up and down stairs more than necessary!
Luckily, I’m still only getting up once at night to go to the bathroom. I’ve also been able to snag a few naps lately when I can get Luke’s attention focused on something for an hour.
And this is funny—when Luke comes and hugs my knees, I can’t see him! My belly is too big!! Makes me laugh.
My biggest craving lately—ICY DRINKS! And lots of them! It’s not really because I’m hot (thankfully I’m not hot most of the time) I just want cold drinks and then I want to chew on the ice (sorry mom-I know that’s bad for my teeth!)
All in all, things are going well and we are counting down the days!
