Let’s just say I am 10 + pounds heavier now than I was at 39 weeks when
Although I am big and and will soon be uncomfortable, I have to count my blessings…I don’t have to deal with most of the complaints many other women do. For example, I’ve never had heart burn with my pregnancies. I’ve never had swollen fingers or feet (just a swollen tummy and chubbier cheeks and thighs). I don’t really get stretch marks either. The ones I do get mostly fade away after the baby is born. And so on and so on.
So right now, I am mostly tired and grumpy and feeling big. This pregnancy has mostly been challenging emotionally (in addition to throwing up 30 times a day for months) but I am looking forward to the birth and seeing how the kids respond to having “Tummy Baby” here. Carter will no doubt be awesome and adjust easily to the baby like he did when
So for now I am trying really hard to keep the house in order as well as finish up little projects that I know I won’t touch for a couple of months after the baby is born. I am really happy with myself though- I got the garage reorganized and swept last week and freecycled a bunch of stuff we aren’t using. I love when I am in purge mode! Hopefully my need to “nest” will rub off on Drew and he’ll clean the carpets for me!
