I was totally planning on doing pregnancy updates all through my pregnancy, but we all know how that turned out… But I figured I could squeeze the last few weekly updates in!
According to my pregnancy app, babe is now the size of a head of romaine lettuce! I am starting to feel the baby dropping down – trading my insane heartburn and shortness of breath for an almost constant pressure on my pelvis and lower back, and feeling like I need to pee literally all the time.
I am getting so exhausted these days – honestly just running downstairs to switch the laundry around makes me feel like I just ran a marathon. I suppose it could be due to the fact that I am only able to squeeze a few hours of sleep in at night between tossing and turning and having up to pee every time I finally get comfortable.
I’ve been so content and patient with my pregnancy so far, but I’m definitely beginning to feel my patience slowly wearing away, and I’m getting more and more eager to finally meet our little munchkin! I am meeting up with my parents in the city next week to finish off my shopping list, and finally get my remote start installed in my car (yay!) I’m really looking forward to having the rest of our list checked off, and finally feeling like I’m ready for babe to make his/her grand arrival! I only have a few things left, but the amount of stress it causes me is unreal.
We have our names officially picked out for boy or girl, but we are keeping them a secret until after babe’s arrival! I’ve also made templates for our birth announcements for both boy or girl, so all I have to do is put a photo and the birth information in, and their ready to go!
What do you think we’re having, boy or girl?! Do you think he/she will arrive early, on time, or late?! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
