Fur Babies

IMG_2498

How far along?
34 weeks. We only have 6 weeks left, yet time feels like it’s moving too slowly! I just want to meet our baby already!
Total weight gain?
I’ll be having another weigh-in this week at my midwife appointment. Last time I checked I had gained a total of 20 pounds. I feel like I’ve gained a lot this week. Baby feels so heavy now, and I know he or she is just going to get bigger!
Maternity clothes?
None this week. With such a short time left, I don’t think I’ll be buying anything new for myself. Shopping for baby stuff is much more necessary and fun days!
Stretch marks?
Still none. Thanks for giving me super elastic skin, mum! 🙂
Sleep?
Waking up at least twice to pee and feeling like I desperately need a glass of water at the same time. I don’t know if it’s the winter dryness that’s dehydrating me or if it’s my pregnant body telling me to drink more water. Whatever it is, I’m drinking more water than I ever  have in my life!
Best moment this week?
We found our at my last appointment that the baby is no longer breech and has turned to the optimal fetal position! I was trying all kinds of exercises to encourage baby to turn and I guess they worked. Let’s just hope that at my appointment this week that baby has stayed in place.
Worst moment this week?
A little emotional this week. We moved into our new house 6 months ago and it’s been a long process of buying everything we need for a fully functioning home on a budget. It’s really hard starting from scratch! There are still bits and pieces we need (or I feel like we need) to make the house feel right and ready before baby arrives. It basically feels like there’s a giant ticking clock above my head, reminding me that I don’t have much time left! I’ve been writing up our home birth plan, and just in case, I’ve been working on our emergency hospital birth plan too, which has been a rather stressful exercise, imagining what I’d do in worse case scenarios.  With a lot on my mind these days, even the silliest things like a dirty yoga ball can turn the tears on. I was ugly crying last night because my husband got drywall mud on my yoga ball! It came right off with warm water though 🙂
Movement?
The movements are so strong now. They don’t hurt or anything, which makes me think there might actually be a girl in there, not a boy? Who’s to know though!
Food cravings?
Big bowls of cereal!
Anything making you feel sick or queezy?
There’s this local independent newspaper that we get and half the content is probably ads for local restaurants, Mexican restaurants to be precise. I can’t even get through the first few pages without being put off by photos of smothered burritos and melted processed cheese abominations. Super-sized mexican food, I just can’t.
Belly button in or out?
It’s an outie now.
Happy or moody?
Feeling happy and excited apart from worrying too much about everything that we need to get done.
Looking forward to?
Introducing our fur babies to our little one. The clip below is from that adorable documentary called, Babies. I must watch it again soon!
