This will be my last bump update. Can you believe it? I am 36 and a half weeks pregnant! In a few weeks, Wally will take his first breath of air and I cannot wait. It’s strange not to have a crib to set up or baby things to buy. It makes me feel like I am unprepared because there’s nothing I need to purchase this time around.
I don’t know how to explain how I’m feeling without sounding like I am complaining. Just to clarify, I want to say that I am so blessed to have a healthy baby in my belly.
Does anyone else get super lazy during their 3rd trimester or is it just me?
To say that I’m exhausted is an understatement. I have no motivation to do anything. It makes taking care of a toddler difficult. I don’t feel like I have a lot to give and I often stress that I’m not meeting all of Russell’s needs. We have been watching a plethora of television.
Along with my lack of energy, I have been too lazy to make nutritious meals for myself. I eat a lot of cereal, granola, and pb&j sandwiches-basically all of the things I generally try to avoid. I ate an entire bag of chocolate covered almonds a few days ago.
I am craving ice cream, cinnamon rolls, and everything else that is bad for me.
Needless to say, the junk is catching up to me. To make matters worse I can’t seem to drag myself to the gym.
I can’t sleep, I feel unattractive and I am feeling massive amounts of pressure in my lower abdomen, or in other words “I’m very pregnant.”
Last week I was checked for dilation and effacement, but unfortunately nothing much is happening yet. I will see how I’ve progressed at my appointment this week. Follow my Instagram for updates on that.
