Other than that... we are plugging along.
I am OFFICIALLY in my 3rd trimester and have just under 11 weeks to go! I can not believe that we are this close! I know I have been blogging a lot about my pregnancy but this is a great way to keep a journal and there are a few things that I would like to share!
Okay I am going to get down and personal. I can not believe how I have popped!!! My tummy is HUGE and I just LoVe it! I have officially gained 35 pounds and the doctor said I will probably gain another POUND a WEEK! WOW! Oh well... I feel good and I don't THINK I look ridiculously huge. I am still working on eating somewhat well (those cravings are STRONG though lol) and I am really working on getting a little bit of exercise. I guess my body is doing what it needs to do!
Overall I love being pregnant! There are a few side effects that can be a little ruthless (heartburn/indigestion, VERY swollen and sore feet, getting poor sleep, and exhaustion) but there is a ton that I love (feeling her move CONSTANTLY, the prego belly, and food cravings). Oh and I felt her hiccups for the first time yesterday! SO COOL! Yep... overall I have been a lucky pregnant woman!
Since we are getting close to my due date (FINALLY) I think I have started feeling the rush to get lots done! I have been making lists for months for what all needs to get done before she is born and I think I am doing fairly well with it! I have made half of my Christmas cards, completed about 30 handmade thank you cards for the future, began making some of my Christmas gifts, made my mailing list for my Christmas cards, making some fun crafts for baby girl, written out my hospital packing list that I will begin packing for the first of November, and in the meantime TRYING to keep up with the hours and hours of sleep that my body needs!
I am beginning to feel the pressure of all that needs to happen before she gets here and some days I don't get anything done because I become overwhelmed. I am REALLY working on keeping my stress down these days as well so I don't get too out of control (actually, Michael does a pretty good job of that)! Luckily I still have some time on my hands and as long I keep working a little each day I know I will get it all done!
In the meantime fall is just about here, football has begun, and we are loving this time of the year! There are lots of things to look forward too over the next month (birthing classes, I and Michael's birthday, family visiting, and scouts) and we will for sure keep busy!
Until next time... HAPPY FALL YALL!!!!
