I need to head over to Buy Buy Baby to get another support band. I can't find my old one and I bet it would really help me out a lot in these last few weeks with the pressure of how low I am.
I've started becoming super itchy at night. I always end up having to ask Josh or one of the older kids to help scratch my back where I can't reach.
Can I be completely honest here? I am miserable about 80% of the time these days. I don't know if it's because it's my 5th baby, the fact I was pregnant with Luke only last year or the combo of everything, but phew. It's been EXHAUSTING! I'm constantly out of breath, my hips and back are hurting, I waddle. I'm just a mess!
Weight: I had an appointment this past Friday and I've only gained 1 pound since my last appointment 2.5 weeks ago! This is amazing, y'all.
Maternity Clothes: Yoga pants and LLR leggings are my BFF at this point! I love my oversized t-shirts and maternity hoodies.
Movement: Lots and lots of movement going on! I can totally feel rolling sensations, lots of hiccups and kicks/jabs.
Sleep: I find myself tired all of the time, but it's hard to fall asleep at night. I'm just so restless. When I stretch my legs, I get charlie horses in my calves and that's so painful. I've been congested these past few weeks, so it's harder to breathe at night with all of the stuffiness.
Cravings: I've wanted ice cream recently. And chocolate has been sounding good.
What I Miss: Sleeping on my stomach, still. Being comfortable. Not waddling or feeling like someone has punched me repeatedly between the legs.
Best Moments of the Week: Luke, Chloe, Mallory & I went bowling with mama last night. The girls had a blast and even Luke ended up bowling the 2nd game. HE LOVED IT!
Questions/Concerns: I'm finding myself nervous about delivery. I've done this 4 times before... I'll be okay!
Goals for the Week: I've started getting our hospital bags ready, so I want to have those completely finished and ready to go.
Still need to finish painting Jake's bedroom at some point along with his new curtains.
