Here is my Facebook update from Baby Gaga:
All Baby Gaga says is that my baby’s digestive system is putting the finishing touches on critical organs in preparation for his first meal. With his first meal in mind, it’s time to look forward to one of the most important things I’ll do for my baby boy – namely, keeping them alive with nothing more than my breasts. (Yeah, Baby Gaga is classy like that)
As for me… Glad you asked…
Ugh. I could just skip this whole post and just say – OUCH.
It’s about that time.
That time when I hurt.
All. The. Time.
And I can’t wait for this to be over.
In reality, I would be fine with whatever happens. If baby is on time, late, whatever – Fine.
But at the very moment I type this – OUCH. My pelvic bone feels like it is broken. My poor vajayjay is swollen and sore – I swear the baby’s head is hanging half way out. Getting out of a chair, the car or off the toilet makes me lose my breath. I feel like an old lady. And I haven’t had a pedi in about 2 months and my feet look like they’ve walked through the Mosby Desert barefoot, but I ain’t about to try to reach those sausages! Oh and speaking of not being able to reach things… my lady parts probably look like the yard of an foreclosed home… tall grass and weeds growing everywhere. I’d hate to be the catcher on D-Day! Maybe I should book a pedi and a bikini wax just so the hospital staff will service me! Well shoot, while I’m at it… I might as well get a massage too!
So are you sorry you asked?
I think that is the most I have complained this whole 9 months!
So let’s get on with this post…
SYMPTOMS: **Same as the past months** Only small changes here.
WEIGHT GAIN: I am up approximately 36 lbs – OUCH! I feel like a cow. I’m not one to stress over pregnancy weight gain though. With my first 3 I gained between 25-30 lbs. With my 4th, I gained over 40 (I think?). As long as I don’t gain 100, I am not going to worry about it. This is my last pregnancy, so I am just going to take it easy and enjoy it.
CRAVINGS: I always write this —-> [Again, same as before. I will want anything that is not nailed down. I LOVE food when I am pregnant. But then again, I love food when I am not pregnant too, so I guess that doesn’t mean anything, haha.]
Watermelon. I’ve been eating almost 1 watermelon per day. Crazy, I know. I just make sure to have a fresh watermelon in the house every single day. My girls and daycare kids have a little bit of it, but I eat the rest. I even wake up in the middle of the night, go down stairs and eat a bunch! Except last night. Last night I woke up and wanted an apple. So at 3 in the morning, I was peeling an apple and scarfing it down.
FOOD ADVERSIONS: HA! Yeah right!
WHAT MADE ME CRY THIS WEEK: Same as usual —-> [I cry at everything on a normal daily basis – pregnant or not.]
Just personal stuff.
MEDICAL STUFF: Well, nothing this week. I am so so so sick of appointments! I have my NST (non stress test) on Thursday and another Cardiologist appointment on Monday.
SOMETHING I AM EXCITED ABOUT: Really everything. I am using my
slaves girls to babysit play with Gracie and my daycare kids tomorrow so that I can get all the baby stuff ready. I am going to be rearranging my room a bit. I am making drawer space for the baby clothes. I need to pull out all the newborn clothes from the bins and wash them. I need to get out the carrier and change it’s cover from Gracie’s pretty pink to a brand new one I have that is black and grey. It was actually for a review, but I haven’t written the review yet. I need to pull out the pack-n-play and see if I am missing any parts to the bassinet (which I think I am). I’m nervous about that. I need to pull in the swing and bouncy/vibrating chair and wash the lining. Oh and I need to also go through my breast pump and make sure everything is organized and ready. I also need to go through and organize all of my cloth diapers and sort through them. I need to make sure I have inserts for all of them so if I need to purchase any extras, I do it now. I’d like to buy a few extras anyway. I’ve gotten a few cloth diapers during this pregnancy for review, but I’d like a few more. So much to do, but so exciting!
OH! And week I mentioned that Mike finally picked a name. Well… he changed his mind. It was going to be “David Michael”. Now it’s going to be “Jack Michael”. I actually really love ‘Jack’ for a baby name!
SOMETHING I AM NOT SO EXCITED ABOUT: Ugh. Labor. Read my last post.
