Well, baby Carney is still in Uterine world. I am a whopping 38 weeks and four days...can you tell I am counting down? Here is the break down of this pregnancy:
The parts that totally bummed:
I vomited practically the entire pregnancy I mean the last time I knelt at my porcelain throne was less than a week ago. Every time I thought the vomit had gone my body would surprise me with an outburst! I think the longest I went with out vomiting is three weeks. Gross!
I still have morning sickness, not in the severity as it was the first 20 weeks but it's still there. I have to be careful what I eat every morning and how fast I eat.
Getting large is just plain awkward.
I have given up running:( I ran up until about 4 and half weeks ago it just started to feel like my bladder was going to explode and my belly fall off. Now I just look longingly at runners and tell myself that one day in the future I will run again...I will.
This time around my feet really hurt, like I think they are going to fall off.
I have been SO much more emotional; it's embarrassing. When the biggest loser was on I think I got teary during every episode. Oh dear.
Choosing a name has been and still is SO hard.
The parts that ROCK!
He finally is starting to drop and now I CAN BREATHE. Ahhhhh, sweet breath.
I LOVE feeling him move and does he move...like an Irish dancer.
I love watching my belly move and seeing the body parts of my uterus inhabitant.
Teaching Jack about his baby brother and involving him in all the preparations has been so much fun. Jack has been so intrigued with everything and I love his enthusiasm for learning.
I love it when Jack talks to his baby brother and talks to other people about his baby brother.
Listening to the creative names Jack has come up with for his baby brother:
This time the pregnancy has gone by so much faster! This is a HUGE bonus!
Feeling not so clueless about everything has made pregnancy less stressful.
*I am really feeling ready to be done with pregnancy but still scared about life with two children. I guess I will never be ready until it actually happens. I long to SLEEP but I guess it's going to be while, maybe years until I'm really truly rested again, oh sleep how I miss you but it's a small sacrifice to make.
Well, my due date is July 10th, Jack was 11 days over due and that was after being induced so who knows how late he would have been. When do think baby Carney will leave my cooshy uterus and come to live in this crazy world. Make you predictions...
