I’ve finally gotten around to posting the pictures from my shower… you can see them on our Baby Shower Photos Page.
Less than two weeks until my due date! I can’t believe we’re so close! She could come any day now. Waiting is the hardest!
Since she didn’t come this weekend, I had a bit of a to-do list for us to get done. None of these things NEEDED to get done, but I figured if she’s not here yet, we might as well be productive! I hope she comes soon though because I’m getting tired of these to-do lists I keep making – but I can’t help it, it’s how I’m nesting!!
This past week I started having Braxton Hicks contractions A LOT. I’ve had BH quite a bit over the past two months – usually I don’t even feel them until I go to bend over and realize my belly is as hard as a rock. Now though, they are still painless but because they are lasting a lot longer, it’s making moving and getting comfortable a little more complicated. The past few nights I’ve felt like I’ve had BH’s constantly while sleeping. Laying on my side is uncomfortable because it’s putting a little pressure on my belly – which is as hard as a rock. You try laying against a basketball and I think you might feel just as uncomfortable!
I’ve also been feeling quite a bit more exhausted! Working 40-hours a week is hard! I’ve decided that this week I’m going to not let myself work so hard at work. I’ve handed off all of my major tasks already – so I should be able to go in and support the testing we’re doing, but not run around like crazy like I normally do. We’ll see how it goes. Once I get there, it’s too hard to go slower, but I know if I don’t I’ll just wear myself out and I don’t want to be so worn out before labor – that’ll be hard work and I need my energy!!
Again, I don’t think I have much to complain about – this pregnancy has seemed very easy and not bad. I’m so thankful that it has flown by without much to complain about!
I guess we’ll see if we make it another week with her on the inside, or if she decides to grace us with her presence sooner than that!
