Today I am eight months pregnant. Holy batman!
Here are a few pregnancy related updates:
Sleeping: It depends on the night. Lately I’ve been waking up every 2-3 hours to pee and switch to the other side and it’s very annoying. It’s funny how this works, because by the time you have a newborn here waking up every 2-3 hours wanting to eat, you’re already used to it!
Preparing for baby: Just when I think I don’t need anything I realize there are a few things I need to get. We haven’t done much to prepare, but trust me… once 36 weeks hit I will be into high gear mode!
Overall mood: I can’t really complain. I’ve felt pretty good this entire pregnancy. My back hurts often, but that’s about it. I’m also not too tired… of course some days I am more than others. But overall I’m doing well, but ready to not be pregnant anymore 🙂
Stretch marks: So far, none. Fingers crossed it stays that way, however I feel a couple small ones coming on. I’m not too concerned about it, with Lucas I got two small ones that faded and disappeared in several months so hopefully this one is the same!
Position of baby: I haven’t had an appointment in a couple weeks, but last time (and every time) my doctor says she can’t tell. I feel like this baby is sideways, which has me a little worried. I always feel kicks in my right side. I know I don’t have to worry yet about the position, but I do anyways.
Weight gain: Why does everyone want to know how much weight you’ve gained during pregnancy? I honestly have no idea. I haven’t looked at the scale once. I also (honestly) don’t care… at all. The number means absolutely nothing to me, because I know as soon as I’m not pregnant I will eventually get back to my “real” weight.
Boy or girl: As you know, we didn’t find out the sex. I didn’t have any “feelings” about it either way, but lately all signs have been pointing to boy. Several people have told me they have had boy dreams and last night, it happened to me. I had a dream we were having a boy! So we’ll see. I still need to get a few girly newborn things just in case! 🙂
