39 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 39 Weeks and 1 day!

How I'm Feeling: I'm definitely slowing down! It's true what everyone says...the last few weeks are the toughest! The aches and pains are increasing but overall I'm not too bad and know it could be worse. I keep reminding myself how blessed I am that things look good at each of my appointments and everything is right on track.

Physical Changes: I'm experiencing increased back pain, hip and leg aching lately due to my belly being quite large! I feel like my bump is stretched to the max...LOL. I'm also feeling more tired! This is all pretty normal at the very end of pregnancy though. 

What I Miss: I miss being able to do normal daily activities with ease! Everything requires so much more effort now. I get frustrated when I physically can't accomplish all I want to get done! Also, I can't wait to wear regular clothing again and for the swelling in my feet to go away.

What I'm Most Excited About: Meeting our baby and beginning this adventure...and feeling like myself again (not sure when this will happen though...especially with limited sleep haha)! 

What I'm Least Excited About: The unknowns of labor and delivery and lack of sleep. 

Exercise: I am definitely able to do less the past few weeks. I do go to a prenatal yoga class and a pregnancy chiropractor where I do some exercises, but other than that, just walking around as I'm on the go during the day! I love being active but my body is exhausted and so achy after a day where I'm on my feet a lot!

Cravings:
Still nothing crazy...but I have been craving seltzer waters and lemonade lately, which is odd for me. I'm usually happy with just water! I would also eat ice cream every day if I let myself...but that's nothing new! Ha.

Movement: Movement is definitely different now...he is running out of room! It's more of shifting and rippling motions and less jabs and kicks. He is more active in the evenings!

Nursery: Almost completely done! I want to add some more wall decor, like the baby's name spelled above the crib. I'll add these things after he is born and then do a nursery reveal blog post!

Name: I think we finally have a name we agree on! We are waiting to see him to make a final decision though.


Thanks so much for reading!
