I am a little surprised we’ve made it this far but thrilled to know the baby will be a little more stronger and bigger then when Lilly was born at 36 weeks 2 days. Note to baby – I’m ready for you, come out, come out whenever you are ready.
Baby’s Name: “Four”. Named by Lilly as when we ask her what the baby’s name will be she says “4”. Interesting!
Baby Items I Found: When I packed away all of Lilly’s clothes she out grew, I apparently forgot how many boxes there were. Found a box with all kinds of stuff on the weekend.
Challenges: I’m exhausted all the time, night-time seems to be the worst.
Exercise: Up and down the stairs, house work, a little walking and prenatal yoga.
Food: Not craving anything but in the evenings I don’t really want to eat dinner. I do eat, but it’s a struggle – maybe it’s because I am running out of room.
Gender: Still a surprise.
Maclean: (our dog) She has been hanging around my side of the bed at night and I just realised she’s been hanging around me today. Hummm….does she know something I don’t?
Mood: I’m ready for baby to be out and am over the whole fear of giving birth again.
Preparation for baby #2: Making a list of things we need to get once baby arrives, talking lots with Lilly about the baby. As I mentioned before, she includes the baby in everything now.
Random: I can’t handle some songs on the radio and have figured out that when I was in my first trimester (and extremely nausea) these songs where playing on the radio constantly. When I hear them today I get this extreme ill feeling and have to leave the room or turn the radio off.
Sleep: Really not much these days but I am taking advantage of being able to nap.
Me and “the monkey” at 38 weeks.
Anyone want to guess when the baby will arrive?
