Since this time next week I'll be in the hospital hopefully dilating like a champ, today is my last ObGyn appointment. I'm getting rather sentimental these days and it makes me sad to think I won't be getting check ups anymore. I always look forward to them because I LOVE hearing how the baby is doing and seeing her on the ultrasound. I guess I'll be seeing her in real life though so that's a better trade haha.
Last week my Doctor felt the baby's body this morning and said she weighs around 7lbs. He also said she hasn't moved down which could be because 1) she's not ready or 2) her head is too big for my body. Peeeerfect haha. That's something every pregnant woman wants to hear a week before she delivers, right? She's had the hiccups a lot this week which are the most precious things in the whole world! She still likes curling up and sticking her booty out all the time, so my stomach looks lopsided haha.
So last week I had gained a couple of pounds, but this week it was back down. So my total weight gain so far is around 20-21lbs!
A lot of braxton hick contractions still, only now they're getting a little more uncomfortable. I'm having a lot of pelvic pain on the reg. I've been getting nauseous and sick again, just like the 1st trimester. So that's a hoot. Hmm....hormones are all over the place now which is weird because they've been pretty stable this whole pregnancy. Not so much moody/mad, but more sentimental haha. I can't believe I only have 1 more week of being pregnant! As hard as it is right now I know I'm going to miss it so much. I love having her with me all the time. Ugh. Here we go...cue the tears.
It's still pretty hard to move my body around like I used to, so workouts are a lot more low-key. I still try to do something every day, even if it's just a walk. This week I switched to doing total body weight training a few times a week along with cardio (rather than isolating muscle groups). It's a little easier on my body, yet I'm still able to do something.
Friday was my last day of work for maternity leave which was weird. This whole thing is so surreal. I just can't imagine the baby really being here. I have no idea what it's going to be like! The nursery is FINALLY all done! Wohoo!! It's the cutest little room and I keep catching Jordan walking into it and just looking at all the stuff. I think my heart will actually stop beating when I see him hold our little girl. It'll be toooooo much!
