Today I hit week 36! I'm so excited, this means I only have 1 MONTH left until my due date! Commencing freak-out mode right about...now. No, but seriously, I really am so excited. Next week I'll be full term - and she'll be good to come out any time. Though I must say I'd like her to stay in there and cook a little while longer. I'm not completely ready for her yet. :)
I am, however, completely ready to not be pregnant anymore. My body is done, done, done with this carrying around another being thing. Lately it's become really difficult to move around and most days I feel like a beached whale. John frequently has to help me sit up off the couch, or the bed, and nighttime? Forget about it. It usually takes a good minute to actually GET UP out of bed by myself to pee, which I do 5-7 times a night. Not to mention the fact that I've started having contractions only at night while I'm lying down. Apparently that's normal because it's the only time of day where our bodies truly relax and this late in pregnancy that means contractions. They're not fun, but they're not too bad either.
I am in the process of figuring our my birth plan at the moment, as well. It's difficult because there are so many variables when it comes to child birth and I don't really want to get too dead set on a specific plan in case it can't happen. On the other hand though, I see the merit in writing down what I'd like to happen as long as everything goes well and we're both healthy. I may post it up on here when I'm finished, because I need to get it done fairly soon. Because, again, she'll be here any time!!!! I mean max 6 weeks.
Anyways, I hope everyone is having a lovely week! <3
