Time’s flying and this week has been a whirlwin. Baby girl is still high up and I’m still dilated at 1cm so looks like she’s still in there for a little while longer. I’m starting to get impatient and more uncomfortable day by day but I have other things to focus on now that helps the day pass.
My fiancé and are in the process of buying a house. Yes, a legit four walls that will soon belong to us. So not only will we have a new baby in the next few weeks, we will also have a place to call our own. It is a very overwhelming process between the bank appointments and the million phone calls but I get a tingly feeling just thinking about it! We will know officially on Saturday if we have to make a counter offer after the evaluation was done this week. Then the packing begins, and so does our new adventure!
I spend half my days now looking up decorating ideas and ways to make this house into the home we always dreamed it would. But it makes me hope more that this baby does come sooner rather than later. And then I have little panic attacks because I’m not ready for this baby to come so soon. It’s been months of a roller coaster of emotions that have definitely passed too fast! My Braxton Hicks turn into moments of “oh my god how will I deal with the pain of real contractions?!?!” Even though millions of women go through it everyday, I don’t think I’ve ever been so scared of something in my life! And just as excited. It’s so odd.
With only two and a half weeks left till my due date, now the fun of “inducing” tricks begin! Everyone has been telling us the most efficient way to induce labor is sex but gosh it is so difficult! I have trouble walking from the pains in my pelvis, nevermind having sex…but we are desperate and gave it a try. It was so awkward and funny that it has to be notable! Fiancé was too concerned to hurt me or the baby or shaking her too much and all I thought about the whole time was the cramp in my foot. I may have said something’s I shouldn’t have. Oh well, better luck next time. Might be a few days because he has a cold and that’s the last thing I want to catch at the moment.
This week I am…
Weeks: 37 and 4 days (I think it’s important to start keeping track of days as I’m closer to 38 weeks than 37)
Cravings: My chocolate craving is back and it’s driving me insane.
Dislikes: I am sooooooo thirsty all the timeeee
Movements: baby girl is moving around well and today I swear I saw her practicing breathing. It was the weirdest feeling ever! I posted on one of my support groups and many of them said it is rare that one gets to experience this. What a special baby we have already!
Sleeping: Has been better the last couple of days but weird dreams are back and I’m really tired all the time.
Mood: I’m feeling really discouraged this week but I baked today and it made me feel a little better. There’s a lot going on and it hasn’t been easy so it makes sense I think.
Any tips or tricks on helping this baby come soon?
