When are you due? September 15th
Do you have a birth plan? If so, what’s in it? A vague one. I’d like to hold off on pain meds for as long as I can so that I’m still able to move around, but I think I’ll probably get an epidural to help when I get further along.
Have you set up a nursery or part of a room for the baby? Yes, nursery is basically done! We just need to install her mobile on the crib and hang a couple of pictures.
Have you bought or received most of what you need? What’s left to get or set up? Yes. The only thing I can think of that we may need to tide us over is some disposable diapers if she isn’t big enough for the G Diapers we bought yet.
What are you most looking forward to? Is there anything you’re dreading or worried about? I just can’t wait to meet this little one. And to finally see her with her daddy. It’s crazy to think how close that’s finally getting! I’m not super excited about the recovery process post-delivery, but I know it will be worth it.
Have you started anything to prepare for labour? ( raspberry tea, evening primrose oil etc) No.
Do you know the gender? Have you decided on a name? Girl! I think we have the first name narrowed down to a few that we like. The middle name is still really up in the air. I think we’re just going to wait to meet her and see what seems to fit best.
Hardest part of this stage? Heartburn has been my biggest discomfort, but even that hasn’t been horrible. I just take a lot of Tums! I’m definitely developing more random aches and pains the bigger I get, though, and the swelling in my feet and ankles is starting to get worse.
weight gain? I’m up somewhere between 23 and 24 pounds right now, with 5 weeks until my EDD.
stretch marks? I might have a small one under one of my breasts, but that’s the only one I’ve noticed, and I’m still not entirely sure it isn’t just a vein. Fingers crossed that no more pop up, but if they do, they do.
Do you have a bump photo? I still need to take this week’s photo, so this is from 34 weeks.
