Craving - Sweets again! I don't know what my deal is. I look
forward to my evenings, where Tyson and I cuddle up on the couch and eat some sort of goodie together.
Sleep - Still surprisingly good. My mind turns for a little bit before my head hits the pillow, wondering if tonights going to be THE night!
Movement - This little girls movements are sweet, but not very comfortable. She loves to jab me in the hips and pelvis. It's funny because P was just the opposite. She loved getting my in the ribs.
Missing - Being able to do the simple things around the house, without it taking everything out of me. It is also getting really hard to hold P and snuggle her at night. There is just no room to hold her on my lap.
Belly Button - Sticking out. It feels so funny. The skin is super thin and soft.
Maternity Clothes - Oh yes! So ready to pack up my leggings and not look at them for a really long time.
Stretch Marks - Nothing yet....
Swelling - Yes, my feet have started swelling. I only wear my flip flops. The tingly and itching gets to me every time. Luckily I know the swelling does't last forever.
Symptoms - Last night I was having a ton of consecutive contractions. I called my mom, started timing them and honestly thought I was going to have this baby. It was bitter sweet. These contractions are sure a tease. I'm not sure how many more days I can handle this waiting game. My back has really been bothering me as well. I thought I was done teaching Zumba, but it looks like I am going to teach in the morning one last time. Wouldn't it be fabulous if my water broke?!
Overall Mood - My anxiety isn't as bad as it has been. I have really just tried to take every day as it comes. P and I have had such a fun week together. I made an effort to get her out and do fun things. I soaked up every second with her. I know our one on one time together is coming to a close, but I am so excited to give her a little sister. My pain tolerance has gone out the window. I don't know if it is my hormones or what.
Looking forward to - I am finally getting checked on Tuesday. It will be nice to see if I am making any progress. I really hope this will get things moving along. I am also getting my hair done on Wednesday. Not too many things feel better than getting pampered. I'm also getting the house deep cleaned! Yipee!!!!
Highlight of the week - Saturday was pretty amazing. I was able to get away and get my lashes filled. I went to lunch at Panera with my sister-in-law Cara, afterwards we went and got mani/pedi's and then topped off the day with a movie. Tyson and P met me at Riverpark where we walked around H&M and got P some fall attire, went to dinner at Five Guys and got a carmel apple at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. It was the perfect day!
Hospital bag is packed, car seat is washed, baby girls clothes are washed and folded, & diapers are purchased. We are about as ready as we could be. Baby girl we can't wait to see what you look like. I cannot wait for the moment where they will lay you on my chest. I seriously cannot wait!!!!
