On Tuesday I hit 39 weeks and honestly thought this baby girl would be in my arms by now! For 2 weeks I’ve been 3cm dilated and my doctor said she could come “at any day” so I’ve been living anxiously since that appointment which feels like forever ago. Here’s a full update… and catch up on how my pregnancy has been thus far! 37 Weeks // 33 Weeks// 30 Weeks // 28 Weeks // 24 Weeks // 20 Weeks // 1st Trimester
Honestly? Over pregnancy! About two days ago something changed and I shifted from being nervous and anxious about giving birth (down right SCARED) to being so ready. I’m so uncomfortable and so much larger than I ever was with Piper that just moving around throughout the day feels exhausting. I am starting to get anxious about going past my due date, I was so relieved and excited with how positive my doctor has been the past two appointments but without any regular contractions or signs of early labor each day I go to bed disappointed. I just really don’t want to be induced again – not that I had a bad birth with Piper, I’d just really prefer to not have Pitocin this time. I go back to the OB on Monday and am thinking of asking her to sweep my membranes and see if that kick starts things!
My heartburn has also been off the chains and I dread going to bed every night because it’s restless and uncomfortable!
Not well, I can’t nap and I have broken sleep, heartburn and trouble breathing when laying on my side.
I haven’t had much energy to cook lately — thankfully we’ve had 2 weeks of Hello Fresh (Use KRUSE30 for $30 off your first order) so I haven’t had to meal plan but still are eating reasonably healthy.
Lots of Third Trimester Pregnancy Tea and date smoothies, pineapple and spicy food (probably NOT helping with the heartburn).
I’ve started trying to walk daily to get labor moving!
Leggings or one pair of maternity jeans that still fits with these AERIE Downtown Sweatshirts & my Target vest when I go out — if I’m lounging at home I’m most likely wearing these AERIE Sleep Leggings.
Overall just more uncomfortable, larger and more anxious!
I got this sweet quilt for the nursery.
And a few baby outfits from Zara!
Not going into labor naturally.
We are READY!! Just need to finalize her name :)
