With 5 weeks to go (!!), being pregnant is definitely ruling my life. My body has seemed to turn into that of an old woman and my brain is consumed with all of the little things left to do, how labor is going to go, and what life is going to look like once we all come back home. It's exciting and terrifying, but that has led to some great confessions to share! Here's what life looks like at 35 weeks pregnant...
I confess that bending over is THE worst. Actually, I can't even bend over anymore, it's more of a weird squat type of thing and then I get out of breath and have to sit down. When I'm home alone during the day and will drop things (all the time), I usually just leave them there and then do one big sweep and pick everything up right before Nick gets home. It's led to lots of great 'leave it' training for Brady, ha!
I confess that the daily naps have returned this week. I was doing so good with going, going, going and had tons of energy and now I've seemed to hit a wall. Oh well, I'll take the sleep while I still can :)
I confess that we have SO MANY 0-3 month clothes, but I still kind of want to buy this bodysuit set. I mean the prints are the cutest for the summer. Pineapples, palm trees and flamingos? Adorable.
I confess that the way people stare at a pregnant woman can be beyond strange. Especially (mostly) guys. It's like they have never seen someone pregnant before or I'm an alien or something. I will not miss that!
I confess that I didn't read any of the baby books I had planned to. I had all these big plans, but where did the time go?! I just started this one which is great for overall baby knowledge and I really hope to be able to read one sleeping book before she's here, too. If you could only read ONE baby book, which would it be?
I confess that I ate two lunches yesterday. Two hours apart from each other. That is all.
I confess that I'm a little worried about baby liking one of the most expensive products we've bought so far. Now I'm hearing mixed reviews and am starting to think I should have at least gotten the plush version... we will see and hopefully she loves it! Or does anyone have a different bouncer they would recommend? #overthinkingproblems
I confess that I'm already starting to feel sad about not being pregnant anymore. Don't get me wrong, I'm very very ready to NOT be and to actually have the baby here, but I know I'll miss it once it's over. Just trying to enjoy these last few weeks as much as I can, as uncomfortable as I'm sure they're going to be! I'm so thankful to have had a pretty easy pregnancy so far.
