Well well well hello there friends.
We are now at 37 weeks, basically Bam Bam can come at any moment now. For all we know I could be having contractions as you are reading this. I am apparently considered to of carried full term and all of Bam Bam’s organs have fully developed. Oh and before I forget to mention, I am officially on Maternity leave. HOORAY! Great timing because this week is kind of a hard one, I am pooped! For some reason I wake up early every day. Now when I say early, we’re talking between 5:00am and 7:00am automatically. No alarm… I guess my body is getting ready for waking up at all hours of the night. My body is preparing me for motherhood… I guess?
My mind is officially running a 100 miles an hour. I’m trying not to worry or stress about anything, but I think its second nature when you are this close. For the most part, it has been an amazing experience for me. I haven’t let anyone’s horrible birthing stories get to me and I have kept pretty positive. Don’t get me wrong, there are times where Daddy-to-be has had to chime in and give me a WOOSAHH moment to get me centered again. But its all gravy and daisy’s. While I am on the subject, to all moms out there, I don’t know if you remember being at this stage in your pregnancy, but if you don’t have a beautiful birthing story or an encouraging birthing story please don’t bother sharing it. How in any way do you think that it is helpful to the preggo momma staring straight at you? If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. Do you think that’s where that saying originated from? Geez Louise!
With all that being said, this week has been a somewhat relaxing one, I had full intentions of cleaning the house, getting things ready… but its been more making healthyness and sleeping. For our Anniversary, hubbalicious got me a Vitamix, so I have been using that for everything! If you haven’t watched the demo for it at Costco or on the shopping network, let me tell you… you are missing out! Honestly, it is magical! It can be used to make ice cream or something completely opposite like soup. To the point where there is steam coming out of the blender when it is complete! Come on!! It has been my saving grace, and with it being easy breezy to clean, it has given me plenty of time to sleep. Any time during the day I see a shut eye opportunity, I am knocked out.
So stay tuned ladies and gentleman… I am due the first week of January but the belly is beginning to drop. Don’t know if it will be a 2013 or 2014 baby! Or Bam Bam very well could be the first baby born of the year or a Christmas Miracle. I’ll keep you updated!!!
Now i’m off to my Midwife appointment! TATA!
Happy Hump Day!
