Merfbaby is 37 weeks!
We’re full term! If Merfbaby decided to arrive anytime now we’d be good to go. Crazy.
How I’m Feeling: Still feeling good, but pregnant. I don’t look massive, and people even comment that from the back or in my face I don’t “look” pregnant. I still feel pregnant though! Sitting on the couch for a longer period is uncomfortable so I’m always moving and switching positions. I’m most comfortable laying on my side or sitting cross legged on the floor.
Belly/Weight: Belly is lower which is nice because I don’t feel him up in my ribs and lungs as much. But he’s sitting square on my bladder now, and I’m well aware of that!!
Life Changes: Work is still trucking along, everyone is heading to Comic Con the weekend of the 20th so that should be interesting since it’s the weekend before my due date. I’m hoping it goes smoothly since it can be stressful for travel and itineraries.
Movement: He’s still moving a bunch, but I know he’s running out of room. I feel him thumping a lot, like he’s knocking around in there looking for more space. He still likes to push lower into my pelvis and is really wedged in there.
Sleep: Sleep is good! I switch sides often and have 3 – 4 potty breaks a night but I’m able to fall asleep quickly each time. Our AC was out over the weekend so it was hotter than normal but I still slept ok.
Cravings: Mexican food :) We had a date night on Friday and had mexican. My cravings are never super strong, more of a “hm, that sounds pretty good.”
Exercise: I was on my feet a lot Thursday and Friday and I was feeling it big time. I was so happy to fall into bed over the weekend and not have an alarm set.
Favorite Pregnancy Moment this week: Finishing the nursery!!!! It’s 100% ready for Merfbaby. All the clothes are washed and everything is opened and put away. It feels strange to not have anything to do anymore.
On My Mind: It’s a different kind of anxious. Like an excited and nervous feeling. We finished our last Bradly class on Saturday. 12 weeks and done! It was crazy to say goodbye to the other couples knowing the next time we see each other we’ll all have our babies. I can feel by body getting ready for labor. I really need to focus on relaxing and taking it easy. I know my body will need to be rested for labor, but my mind is always thinking of something that needs to be done. Merfman forced me to sit on the couch most of yesterday which was so hard for me, but it was good. I feel much more rested today.
