here we are, another week closer to meeting this baby!
thoughts i’m currently having:
boy or girl? boy or girl? BOY OR GIRL?!?!
ouch. the baby is getting bigger by the day and the baby’s head is still resting quite uncomfortably beneath the right side of my ribcage. the pressure is so intense (stabby, burning sensation) and it feels like the nerves in that area are going to be permanently damaged.
contractions: either stop altogether or GET ON WITH IT already because it’s uncomfortable and annoying. enough practice, and FYI to my uterus - we’re having a c-section anyway.
the 10th month of pregnancy is basically cruel and unusual punishment. my heart goes out to ash who has been pregnant for 2 more weeks than me. FYI to baby UCYN - time to come out!
remember this? when pregnancy was so beautiful and amazing and enjoyable? i’m trying to channel that positive energy yet somehow the feeling seem like a very distant memory…
question for new mamas: i have 8 days til go time, and everything is done. i’ve shopped, cleaned, packed my bags, caught up with friends, stacked my DVR… any advice about how i should spend my last week before baby?
moreofmolly said: Sleep! Freeze meals, relax, eat, sleep, get a pedicure (seriously, I’ve heard that foot massages can induce labor bc of the reflexology points in the foot). I had Ryan the day after a pedicure so there may be some truth to it!
iamtallandawesome said: pamper yourself. mani/pedi, facial, take yourself to the movies, take warm bubble baths, indulge in a night out at a favorite fancy restaurant, etc. I had issues at first feeling guilty spending my time pampering, but I absolutely don’t regret it now
