Hey y’all! I’m back with a longgg baby post today! I’m going to cover my bumpdate, a third trimester checklist and what I got from our baby registry!
As I’m writing this I’m currently 39 weeks and 4 days. Thursday I’ll be 40 weeks but I’m hoping to have this post up before then (which as we all know never happened.) At this point in my pregnancy I’m also hoping to have Baby E by then if I’m honest. But of course, I know she’ll come when she decides she’s ready. But if this little missy isn’t “ready” by the 16th of May she will be given her eviction notice! Here’s to hoping she wants to come before then!!
But, now that it’s almost over, it’s fun to look back on pregnancy longingly, but in reality it was a really tough nine months for me physically from day one. To this day, I don’t believe a single soul who says that they love being pregnant. I felt so sick for 90% of the time that it’s hard to imagine feeling good! In the end, every nauseous day, every night without sleep, and every ache and pain will be beyond worth it, and weirdly the last two weeks have been the ones where I’ve felt the best which has been so nice.
I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining. Honestly and truly I’m not. I’m blessed to have been able to grow and support my baby. But that being said being pregnant wasn’t a walk in the park for me. I loved parts more than others but I the love I developed for my baby before she was even born was what I really enjoyed the most.
Feeling her move around while still inside me would sometimes be so overwhelming. I’m a mom. I made a person. A little baby girl who I could not wait not have and meet and hold. Of course I knew it wouldn’t be easy. But it would be 100% worth it.
