I hope my nesting instincts kick into high gear so that I can get everything done :)
Last week, we took a little trip to Austin (read part one here...part two is coming soon!) as a last getaway before the baby, so we shot some pictures in the scenic hill country to capture the bump!
Baby stats: He's as big as a cantaloupe and about 5.5 lbs. Believe me..he's growing ;)
What's new: Not too much is new, but I am finding that the bump is starting to get in the way! I feel like I'm always bumping into things.
Symtoms: I think I have the normal end-of-the-pregnancy symptoms including occasional heartburn, trouble sleeping, soreness, swollen ankles + fingers (especially if I'm on my feet a lot or not drinking a lot of water), and some other unmentionable things ;)
Movement: Baby boy is still moving around a lot, but I think he's slowing down a bit since he is running out of space. I seriously think that I'm all baby! I love feeling him goof off down there, and I love when he has the hiccups!
Cravings: Water. Fruit. Water. Fruit.
Exercise: I finally got over the sinus yuckiness I had a few weeks ago and then Spring Break hit. So, I really haven't been doing any specific exercise lately. But, we did lots of walking in Austin, and I'm trying to walk with Mac 3-4 times a week. I should really start doing it daily but...
What I miss: Leaning over. I used to think that pregnancy ladies were just being dramatic when they had trouble leaning over or bending--now, I understand! When you've got a baby in there, they can only move so much for you! So, I've learned how to be more creative :)
What I look forward to: Breathing better and sleeping on my back/stomach. I hope that baby boy decides to move down soon because I'd love to have more lung function! I also am really starting to look forward to the little guy just being here and introducing him to all the people who are so excited to meet him!
ps: the sweet simplicity link-up is happening tomorrow! Come and join me and my secret co-host :)
