Okay, NOW I’m starting to hit a new level of freak-out because we are getting down to the end. OH BOY. I mean, I had Callum nearly 4 weeks early so I could have this baby in 4 weeks. WHAT THE WHAT?!?!? So I’m scrambling a bit, making lists of things I need to get done, things I need to stock up on, before the baby comes. Here are a few notes:
-organize clothes in bins according to sizes for postpartum body
-pack hospital bag
-get MacBook serviced before warranty runs out
-dye my hair
-assemble the Rock n Play and the swing
-Stock up on paper towel, toilet paper, laundry detergent, shampoo, conditioner, dish detergent, garbage bags (basically any bulky items that won’t fit into a grocery cart with a 3 year old and an infant car seat)
I’ve already washed and put away all the baby clothes, bought everything that I’ll need for the first few weeks (I’ll write up a separate post on that), and I cleared out our walk-in closet and turned it into a nursery (ha ha! living the dream!) so I’ll take some pictures and show you guys once it’s done (I need to make an Ikea trip first). I’m just really excited to meet this little boy!
I have my OBGYN appointment tomorrow (it’s every 2 weeks now) and I know that my uterus and baby are bigger than 2 weeks ago. I can really notice a difference. So I have no doubt that she will be happy with the growth and measurements and stuff.
As for how I’ve been feeling? Well, you know how I told you guys about how I had to make myself throw-up the plastic I accidentally ingested through my smoothie? Well I guess that triggered an onset of nausea because I threw up the day after that, and then the day after that too. I heard morning sickness can return in the third trimester so I’m not too concerned, and I’m already feeling better anyway, so that’s a relief. I should also write up a post on what I eat each day–it’s unreal how much healthier I eat while I’m pregnant. It almost becomes a game to me to see how many veggies and fruits I can consume. It feels SO GOOD. And I stopped drinking cow’s milk too, and I’m curious to see how it will affect me because I drank a lot of cow’s milk.
My indigestion is still really bad but that’s just how it will be until I deliver. I prop myself up with about 8 thousand pillows each night to sleep. My toes have started swelling a bit in the evenings, my hair is huger and thicker than ever, and my boobs are GIGANTIC. I feel like I have to provide my passport and my purpose for travel whenever I take off and put on my bra. I weigh 139 lb now, 5 lb less than I weighed at 32 weeks pregnant with Callum, but a solid 19 lb heavier than I was before this pregnancy got underway!
My running has been great! I hit 70 miles last week. If you’d like more details, here is the link to my Mileage Monday from my 32nd week of pregnancy.
Would you guys be interested in knowing what I eat on an average day while pregnant?
What about a post on what I think are the newborn essentials for surviving the first few months of parenthood?
