Hey to whoever reads this 🙂 Who else is super pregnant and can’t wait for it to be over and meet their baby and face the new life head on?
I haven’t posted anything on here in over ten weeks and there isn’t really a reason for that. There isn’t that much to update on. I’ve been just living a very normal stay at home mom life which I seriously enjoy. Baby girl is five weeks away now (hopefully sooner, I wouldn’t mind if she came December 1st) and I’m getting very nervous and excited about the birth. My first labor was hard because I was induced which totally sucks. Induced contractions has to somehow be harder then going into labor on your own? I had no break in between them at ALL so I’m very curious how it is when it happens naturally and how I’ll handle it. I will return to this topic once I’ve actually gone through it. Let’s hope I don’t have to be induced this time. My doctor and I haven’t even talked about it. And I think I would say no unless she found a good reason as to why I’d need to be induced. I don’t have a big baby like last time which was my old doctors reason for inducing me. I went 5 days overdue.
I am not emotionally prepared to go overdue this time. I seriously hope I don’t. My body is so tired and I have a 2 almost 3 year old so the belly is just in the way. I always sound so ungrateful when I say this but I just have to be honest. I don’t enjoy pregnancy but I love my kids to the end of this earth. It has nothing to do with that, it’s just the “condition” you’re in for 9 months that my body can’t handle. I’m always sick and it just.. sucks.
What else? I passed my glucose test (that’s a long time ago now) and I did so much better than last time. With my son I could barely hold that drink down. I had to lay down and focus SO hard not to puke. Haha! Glad that’s over. Anyway. I’ll just do a simple update like I’ve done for each update so far. If anyone is interested in a “haul” of the stuff I’m going to get for this baby in the next week or two please let me know. We haven’t bought much YET and we’re so late to it this time around. I will have it all ready by 38 weeks because that’s my cut off time for panic. If I don’t have hospital bags and everything we need by then we’ve done things wrong, lol! Okay, here we go.
Due date + sex of baby: Baby girl is due on December 7th 2019.
Baby is as big as: We had an ultrasound yesterday and she’s at 2,4 kilograms now which is good. She was measuring very small early on and now she has caught up. I think she’ll be over 3 kilos at birth.
Cravings: I’ve been craving cereal, Thai sweet chili flavored peanuts, gingerbread cookies and baguettes with cheese, ham, cucumber and mayonnaise. I know I shouldn’t really have meats like that but I ate what I got in two days so it didn’t stay in my fridge growing weird bacteria.
Annoyances/pain: Since the baby has dropped (she’s head down now, YAY!) my heartburn problem is now a lot less present, but it’s still there sometimes. I won’t sleep comfortably until I can sleep on my stomach a full 8 hours. Which won’t be for a year or so, so I’m just used to bad sleep at this point. I’m prepared for the lack of sleep a baby brings, hehe.
Mood: SUPER NESTING MODE is on. It’s been on for a long time to be honest but now I really feel like I have to get everything ready in the next two weeks. We will try.
Purchases: I’ll do a separate post in the future when we have everything ready.
Next doctors visit: We had one yesterday and everything seemed great. I love my doctor, she’s great. I had the strep B test and a final blood test. My next appointment is on November 22nd.
