Well we are 37 Weeks today! But just throwing this update together quickly.
My 36th week went really well. I am definitely starting to get into Nesting Mode.
This baby is going to be here in no time. There are still some things to do!!!
I am honestly feeling fantastic. I am shocked at how amazing I feel this far along into my pregnancy. At this point with Jens I am pretty sure I was miserable (but I guess it was also the middle of summer)
There is only 1 thing I will be complaining about for week 36 and that is SLEEP. I sleep pretty good throughout the night...but when I wake up the one time to go and use the bathroom around 2-4am my body is so sore. My lower back kills. But the biggest problem is when I sleep on my right side and try to roll over to get out of bed it takes me like 5 minutes just to roll over because my hip like locks up. So not cool.
It is very uncomfortable to only sleep on 1 side so I wake up a couple times in the night to roll over to the other side to help stay comfortable. It does work...but not so much when it locks up like I was just explaining.
I feel great otherwise though. Definitely slowing down...and it's hard to carry Isaiah and Jens when they want to be held...so that sucks.
The next couple of weeks leading up to his arrival will just look like...me getting ready for him. Knitting away, sewing a couple of things, washing all of his clothes, diapers, organizing the nursery & all the stuff I'll need for him, preparing frozen meals, walking.
This week baby is the size of a Honeydew
