Getting down to the wire here! One more week I will officially be full term, and will have the go ahead for a home birth. Everything still looking good at my appointment this week. Measuring a little small, but I have been continually growing and gaining weight. That's all that really matters. I had my first little taste of heartburn (for this pregnancy) last week. Almost made it through with none! (We had some friends over, and I was eating yummy food too late. That's what did it!) By this time with Will my shoes were a bit snug, and my wedding rings were stuck. But so far, I have had no noticeable swelling. My rings still slip right off!
Sam is quite the active little guy! Hopefully he will calm down once he is out here. His head is down, down, down and causing his mama quite the discomfort. These past couple of days have been pretty tough dealing with even more than normal lower abdominal/pelvic pain. My midwife was saying it is typical to be achier earlier the second pregnancy. Praying it subsides soon. Going to take a hot bath, and hopefully that will help!
I got all things baby/birth related finished on time. Now focusing on getting all things Christmas done before baby comes! I have a feeling that this guy is going to surprise us early. Not that I am getting my hopes up or anything. I was 4 days late with Will, and was perfectly fine with it.
I am kind of sad that this pregnancy is almost over. It all went by too fast. I am trying to enjoy every moment he stays safe inside my womb, yet it is sometimes hard when it gets so uncomfortable. I am very much looking forward to meeting this little one though. Wondering if he'll have his daddy's pretty blue eyes or if he will match his brother and mama with big brown ones. Wondering if he will come out looking huge like his big brother did or if he will be a bit tinier. That day will come soon enough though. For now, I will try to savor these last few moments as a family of 3.
