35 weeks

How I’m Feeling: Even though I’m in decent spirits, I’m feeling pretty junky this week. To start with, my sleep has been totally hijacked by the bump. I think this whole last week each night I’m getting about 4 hours of sleep maybe. I just can’t get comfortable, my itching is driving me nuts, I’m starting to experience belly aches/cramps in the night, my nausea is at it’s peak, and I find myself at 12:30am sitting in a warm bath just trying to find something that will help me to relax. So, during the day now I feel like a zombie, which is causing my patience to dwindle, and I’m just all around exhausted. I’m also just experiencing the room in my belly running out. This little girl is starting to get cramped in there, and she will sit on a nerve that runs to my leg, causing my leg to cramp up or go dead. I had this same feeling with Logan, and it’s just the weirdest feeling. I’m thinking that I’ve also been having some Braxton Hicks contractions too. The last two days I get having some cramping that takes my breath away, and that’s the only thing I know to relate it to. Needless to say, I’m getting to that point of just being done with being pregnant. The last few weeks are always the hardest, and I know I’m heading in to that period. But I don’t remember feeling that way at this point yet with Logan, I remember it taking a few more weeks. I’m wondering now if she will be here early. My dog has started to be super attached to me, and this week Logan has gone off the rails, turning in to an emotional mess. Makes me think they can sense something that I can’t.

How I’m Changing: The bump feels like it’s just getting out of control. There’s no seeing my feet at all when I stand up. I get out of breath extremely quickly now, and then of course all the changes I listed above. Nausea has come back like a bitch. Right around dinner time I just feel like I’m gonna loose my stomach and it lasts through the night. Motivation and energy are a total joke right now. I think I’m in the mindset of trying to soak up the little rest time that I get, since I know now what’s coming. Even though I have a to-do list that’s a mile long, I just can’t get the motivation to do anything on it. Oooh — and my boobs are starting to randomly leak. Now that we’re in the home stretch, and not knowing if we will stop with two babies, I’m finding that even though I’m getting tired of the bump, I’m also getting a little sentimental with it. This could be the last time that I’m pregnant, so as hard as it is, I’m trying to focus on loving this last stage of pregnancy, and feeling a baby moving in my belly.

What I’m Eating/What I’m Not Eating: Cereal with frozen blueberries, grapefruit, pickles, toast with butter, protein waffles, smoothies, and things ice cold are heaven to me right now. Meat and veggies are kind of blah right now, I don’t really have the appetite to eat a “real” meal, I just want cereal or something snacky.

Total Weight Gained: +26 pounds [starting: 132 – current: 157]

Most Exciting Moment: Logan putting his hand on my belly to feel her move

Toddler Daily Calendar

February 3, 2016

I’ve had so many things running through my mind lately. With winter coming to an end, a new baby on the way, and Logan starting to get older, I feel like we need to start implementing a better daily routine at home and start doing more activities and learning, than just watching Mickey Mouse. My […]

Thoughts on Growing from 1 to 2

February 1, 2016

Today I got a call from my cousin, who is a month ahead of me in her pregnancy. She went in to her weekly doctor’s appointment and he examined her and told her she needed to go to the hospital because she was in labor. When I talked to her she was a little emotional […]

How I’m Feeling: Starting to feel like time is flying by now. As I sit here and write this [almost at 35 weeks] and realizing we are just weeks away from meeting this little girl, the excitement is starting to set in. With the baby sprinkle over, I’ve spent the last week getting her room […]

Full Body At Home WRKT

This week has been a doozy for me! Between a sick toddler and a growing belly, with my energy really dropping off, getting up at 4:30 this week to go to the gym just hasn’t happened. I’m trying to really listen to my body and take the rest in the morning, pushing my workouts a […]

Valentine’s Day Toddler Crafts

Vday Crafts

I absolutely love doing crafts with Logan. He may not get in to them as much as I do [is it a boy thing?], but it’s fun to just sit with him, listen to some music [which is always kids radio per Logan’s request], and just be creative. And with the weather still being cold […]

Since the randomness of conversations with Logan is increasing, thought I’d share some of it with you! “This juice is so juicy” Me: “Logan did you eat all your lunch at school?” Logan: “Yup. I ate it and I feed my baby sister in my belly” “This is just ridiculous” “I need to go potty. […]

Bump Workout

Since I’ve spent the last 32 weeks working out with a bump, I thought it would be fun to do a bump workout for Fitness Friday. My doctor was totally fine with me continuing on with my normal workouts since I had been working out before getting pregnant. For my first and second trimester I […]
