I feel like it has been forever since I last updated on baby boy. I am 34.5 weeks and doing about as well as I can be at this point. We had maternity photos taken this weekend and the above is one of my favorites.
All of pregnancy is hard on me, each trimester for different reasons. We are now in the super swollen, super sore, super uncomfortable stage.
My feet are swollen round-the-clock and bear resemblance to the feet of Fred Flintstone. My legs are also pretty bad by the evening. Today my midwife gave me an Rx for compression stockings – awesome.
I am sleeping well overall, as long as I don’t drink too much and have to wake up to go to the bathroom. If I get out of bed, I am often up with insomnia for 1-2 hours.
We have had a first name for months, but just agreed on a middle name about a week ago. For some reason though, I don’t want to share it publicly yet. So, you’ll just have to wait and trust it’s pretty awesome. 🙂
I am seeing the Vanderbilt Midwives again, but this time around have opted for a c-section. My birth was physically traumatic with Adeline and we want to preserve the integrity of what is left, if you will. 🙂 After carefully weighing the pros and cons feel this is the best option for my body and the baby. So, would love any advice you have for the recovery process with a c-section.
We have scheduled the c-section for January 6, 2015.
One month left!
