Can you even believe that I started out like this at 4.5 weeks pregnant!?!? Now I am 36 weeks pregnant and officially in my 9th month! Ready or not, this baby is COMING!
I had a doctor appointment yesterday and everything looks great. My midwife requested that I keep “baking this baby” for 6 more days, but then after that I’m good to go whenever. I have no desire for this baby to come early. I plan to keep “baking” for a few more weeks. 🙂
Overall, I feel really good. I’m uncomfortable, but it is bearable. My biggest complaint is that my sciatic nerve gets pinched from time to time. I can barely move when that happens. Thankfully, it only happens around bedtime.
Note: Hubby, just because I said that I’m feeling good that doesn’t mean that I don’t want a back rub every night! Carrying a baby is hard work even when things are going well. Can I get an “Amen,” moms?
As I’m writing this, my baby is going nuts. My stomach is visibly moving all over the place. Last night the baby got the hic-ups and was in a position that made it feel like a little baby finger was poking my bladder with each hic-up. Growing a human is a crazy experience.
Please say a prayer that Nate and I can figure out what to name this poor child. My grandfather was several months old before he was named. It looks like this kid might be in the for fate. While you’re chatting with God, I would also appreciate prayers for a safe, fast, and pain manageable delivery.
I’ll give a complete update on how I’m doing with my baby prep to-do list in the Insane Goals Monthly Link-Up on Monday, April 2nd.
Do you think we’re having a boy or girl?
