Tomorrow, I’m officially 36 weeks pregnant, and exactly a month away from my due date. Considering all the circumstances, I am doing well- both baby and I are healthy and growing. I am missing my feet very much. I haven’t seen them forever. I am strongly considering setting up a Facebook page for my feet so that I can know what they have been up to.
My list of pregnancy-related annoyances is also growing, and now includes sciatic pain and strong Braxton Hick contractions (on top of exhaustion, acid reflux, sleeping problems, and many more). The contractions are so bad that I spend yesterday doing nothing but lying in bed, reading and resting. I also had my midwife come over and check on me because they came so frequently. Today seems to be better, luckily.
On the bright side, however, baby Y stopped feeding on my brain waves and moved on to a steady diet of milk and cornflakes. And funny thing, I don’t even like milk, but milk with cornflakes is just fine because it is the only thing that doesn’t give me the heartburn.
Also, I have never felt so creative in my life. I have already written several blog posts for my blog and others, have several more to write and don’t feel like this is overwhelming. Or maybe, just a little bit. But I am working like crazy because I don’t know how much time I have left.
So what will happen is this. I will probably post less frequently now to focus on my other assignments. And I am very lucky to have several blogger friends who have agreed to write guest posts for me! It’s such an honour! I am looking forward to these posts and can’t wait to share them with you!
If possible, I will continue writing my own articles, but my belly is growing bigger and makes writing difficult. I should consider using it as a lap top desk. That may help.
Other than that, I’m looking forward to meeting the little man in my belly, and hope all goes well for the rest of my pregnancy and for the birth. Wish me luck!
