39 Weeks

I can’t believe my 39th week is officially here! I’m getting very anxious and impatient for his arrival.

I’m 1cm dilated and the Nurse Practitioner that I just seen said my cervix is still too thick. I’m scheduled to go and see my OB Wednesday to get his opinion and to see what he wants to do.

Check up on Baby Aiden went well. I have been sick with a bad cold, but Aiden is doing good. He is head down and I am about a 1/2 Centimeter Dilated. Going back next Monday to be checked again and to schedule my Induction for next Thursday!! In 10 days our little man could be here!! πŸ˜³πŸ‘ΆπŸ’™

Symptoms: I have a cold right now. 😟 I have had a couple of Braxton Hicks Contractions very late at night before bed. They felt like period cramps or a very upset tummy kind of pain.

Cravings: Nothing out of the usual for me. 

Aversions: Anything made with Vinegar 

Wedding rings: Still off. I can’t wait to be able to put them back on!! πŸ’

Sleep: As much as possible but very hard to get comfortable. 

Excited for: My Husband to get home next week and for Aiden to arrive!

Missing: My pre-pregnancy body and normal clothes.

Movement: He is a strong and active little man! He is head down and ready to come out!

Exercise: House work is the only exercise I get these days. All that is exhausting anyways lol

Sretch Marks: None so far! Yay! Moisturizing is definitely important.

Swelling: My hands and feet now.

What I am Loving: Watching it snow outside. ❄

It’s the beginning of my 9th Month!! I can’t believe my little man is almost here! He can come any day but I hope he waits until his Daddy gets home! πŸ’™πŸ‘Άβ³

Symptoms: Heart burn like crazy! It’s so bad at times it makes me cough. Fatigue, back pain and hip pain.

Cravings: Pizza, sweets and Pumpkin Pie.

Aversions: Doing the dishes and house cleaning. lol

Wedding rings: Off since forever ago. 😦

Sleep: Not as good as it used to be. Multiple bathroom breaks in the night, hip pain and pressure from laying on one side too long. Sleeping with a pillow between my knees helps a lot.

Excited for: Baby Aiden to get here and to be rid of these Pregnancy issues!

Missing: My Wedding Rings and my Husband.

Movement: He is quite the Athlete. Very active and likes to curl up on my right side and make my ribs and back hurt. lol

Exercise: None since being diagnosed with Sinus Tachycardia. My heart rate gets high enough like working out with just walking. 

Stretch Marks: None! Still sticking to my multiple applications of Goats Milke Lotion from Ulta and Moroccan Argan Oil. Still keeping my fingers crossed!

Swelling: My hands and feet. πŸ˜•πŸ˜–

Labor Signs: None

Only 5 weeks or less to go!! Time has really flown by and I can’t believe that the next time Joe comes home our little man will be arriving!!! I’m so excited and very nervous. This issue with my heart makes me even more nervous. I just hope that Joe can be here for the delivery and spend as much time with us as possible before going back to work. πŸ‘ΆπŸ’™

This cute ornament was made by my Mother-in-Law.

34 Weeks

My major projects lately have been organizing all my baby stuff, the nursery and house. Making room for all my new baby items is a little difficult. It has forced me to declutter and get rid of things that have not been used in a long time. Since my Husband is home we have put up our Christmas Tree. There was no way I could do it myself this year like I did last year. We actually went out and bought a smaller tree that is Prelit. That cut my work in half and was SO worth it!! It took me a couple of days to decorate it since I’m still having some heart and asthma issues. My tree and mantle are the only things in the house that I have decorated this year. I will have plenty going on and would rather not have to deal with taking any other decor down once January arrives. I just couldn’t be without my beautiful tree and garland on the fireplace.

I’m feeling much better thanks to my new medication. Baby Aiden is doing great. He is a tough little guy. Just like his Daddy.

I went shopping for Baby Aiden with my Mother-in-Law and out to lunch for my 30th Birthday. Checking items off the list feels great! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘Ά

I can’t believe I’m 30! I’m going to miss my 20s. I have been through so much in the past 10 years. I have learned and changed so much.Β My 30s are going to be kicked off by some major events that I really look forward to. From buying the house we live in, that has been in my Family for decades, to welcoming our Baby Boy into this world. I can see so many adventures ahead of me and I can’t wait!

31 Weeks

I can’t believe it’s been 31 Weeks already! Time is flying by and staying busy helps. I almost forgot that I’ll be turning 30 in a couple of weeks! Lol 😳😱😡😴It’s crazy to think that when Joe comes home in 12 days, that will be the last time we are together with just the 2 of us. β€πŸ‘ΆπŸ‘£

30 Weeks

Only 9-10 more weeks until Baby Aiden ARRIVES!!! πŸ‘ΆπŸ‘£Β That also means 10 more weeks til Christmas!! πŸ˜±πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸŽ

Fatigue is back once again and I have been having to take naps. Growing a Tiny Human is exhausting! I have realized that these last 9-10 weeks are the closest that Aiden will ever be to me. It makes me a little sad to think about, but having my own body back again will be a relief as well. Lately, heartburn has been the worst that I have ever had. It’s so intense at times that it is starting to make me cough. I have been eating Tums like they are candy to find some relief. Aiden has been so active and all over the place. It’s so amazing to feel him all curled up and resting to one side of my belly. I can actually see it because my belly will be lopsided. LolΒ
