I am now 9 months pregnant. I am actually 37 weeks now and very ready to have this little girl! It’s been a very long 9 months and I feel like my body is just done with being pregnant. I keep having weird pains and things that leave me practically crippled by the night. Now I’m having problems with my gallbladder and have just been overall feeling yucky. It’s been rough, which is why my posts unfortunately keep being few and far between. Even though I am miserable, I am trying to treasure these last few weeks of being pregnant because I know that this is my last pregnancy. So it’s kind of bittersweet. I can’t wait to meet her, but I will miss feeling her little kicks and nudges from inside me. I am blessed to be pregnant and even though it’s been the hardest pregnancy I have gone through, I am so grateful to being able to have my baby girl.
Every day I feel more and more prepared to have my little girl. My house is clean, bags are packed, nurse gifts are ready, big brother gifts are wrapped and packed, her room is just waiting for her, freezer meals are ready, and I am even (amazingly) caught up on laundry right now.
If she doesn’t come by 10/24, I will be induced that day. So it’s nice knowing an end day….so I have 2 weeks or less! So until she decides to show, I will be trying to get caught up on blogging, work on some little projects, and just spend time with my sweet little family of 4 before we become a family of 5 (well 6, if you count our dog, Harley)!
What things did you do to get prepared before your baby came? I am just wondering if I am leaving something out. Would love to hear any and all tips that you might have! I will definitely post pictures when she arrives but it will probably be a little bit of time before I can post them on the blog. So be sure you are following me on Instagram and Facebook, because that is where the pictures will end up first. If you aren’t following me on Instagram, you should…I post more pictures there than I do on Facebook. Wish me luck!
