These past couple of weeks I have been in growing stage haha. Baby boy is filling up every inch of my torso/ribs and I felt it! I complained every day of how tired I was and how much my back hurt. I just didn’t have the energy to keep positive. The final stretch is the hardest for me because I get so uncomfortable and I’m unable to do things that I normally do with ease i.e. play with the kids, clean the house, workout. But it is all SO worth it.
At my 34 week appointment I told the nurse I was having a lot of contractions. They checked me and I was a 1.5cm dilated and 50% effaced. Because of this, they gave me steroid shots for baby boy’s lungs. Those hurt SO bad! I had them with Jackson too. I tried to tell the nurse I always dilate early but don’t deliver till 38 weeks…she didn’t listen. Oh well, better safe than sorry.
I’m still working out and staying active during the day, but by 8:30pm I am SO done and ready for bed. I have had really bad sleep insomnia in week 35, my brain just won’t turn off. That has really kicked my nesting into high gear. I think I have prepared everything I possibly need, so that’s a good feeling. I just cant wait to snuggle this new babe and neither can the kids. They want to hold him so bad. They’re constantly kissing and hugging my belly.
