I know I keep posting about this pregnancy and my growing belly, but that's what's happening around here. Pretty soon all the posts and pictures will be about a cute little baby boy. So until then, here are some of my last thoughts about this pregnancy since we only have a few more weeks to go. Luckily, I have still been able to sleep despite the endless trips to the bathroom and the uncomfy state I am in. I am still hungry all the time, and can eat anything and everything in sight. I thought once the baby got bigger I would have less room for food, but that's not the case, I can still fit a lot in there, ha ha! I am still working full time and am glad to have something to keep my mind off of the aches and pains. I feel like I have lost my mind lately, and have done and said some pretty silly things.
Most women at this point are just wanting the baby out, but I am actually okay with him staying put for the next 3 weeks. I just hope he doesn't suprise us and come early. I am not ready yet, and know he will be a lot more work out of the belly. I feel his movements and kicks more than ever before. He loves to put his foot and toes right in my ribs, which really hurts. I have been really good about keeping up my exercising and go about 4 to 5 times a week for at least an hour. My routine mostly consists of fast pace walking and a little bit of jogging. The weight gain has been one of the hardest parts of pregnancy for me, and I can not wait to start operation lose baby weight!!
This last month hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. Yes, I am very uncomfortable, and have completely forgotten what it is like to not be pregnant, but it really hasn't been too bad. Max has dropped and is in his proper birthing position, which is a huge relief because he was transverse until about a week ago. I only get contractions late at night, and I really haven't had too many. I have a lot of anxiety about the labor, delivery, and first 3 weeks of this little guys life. I have a few friends who just had their babies and they are really having a hard time. It is quite an adjustment. I feel so much love for Max, and want to hold and kiss him, so despite my anxieties, I am sure it will all be worth it in the end.
