I am nearing the end and I’m getting SO SO excited to meet baby girl. I can’t believe how quickly it has gone. No matter what, we’ll meet her in 2 weeks or less, ahh!
I think I have officially nested(probably too much) and we are ready for her. My Christmas check list is about done(thank you Amazon) and now I can fully enjoy the holidays and my sweet newborn. There were also things like Jackson’s preschool Thanksgiving performance I wanted to see, and I’ve been able to do all of that. I feel at peace and relaxed knowing that whenever she comes I don’t have any one thing stressing me out.
We put up Christmas this past weekend and the kids were so excited. The holidays are magical!
37 week bump with all 3; J top left, lily top right, and now
Physically I feel good. I can tell she’s dropped a lot and grown. Her movements are big swooshing motions across my whole belly and it’s such a cool feeling. I LOVE that feeling because it lets me know she’s growing and gaining some nice baby chubs. I’ve been trying to stay as active as possible to naturally bring on labor. My contractions are getting more uncomfortable and chasing after Lily makes me so out of breath haha. I still walk 2 miles every other day and lift weights/do squats on the off days and try and be active throughout the day.
One thing I’m looking forward to most(besides holding and kissing this sweet girl) is getting my energy back. It’ll be so nice to be able to just jump up when I’m playing with the kids on the floor lol.
At my appointment the baby’s heart beat was strong, and I’m about a 3. Still measuring on the small side. My other babies always measured big, but never end up being huge(lily has been the biggest at 7lbs 1oz). She’s not worried because I’m consistently growing.
Can’t wait for Thanksgiving, let the holidays begin!
