So, here it is. The picture of my 35 week belly. It's impressive, no?
This is how I feel about it:
I feel huge. As one of my friends so accurately put it, when I'm pregnant my WHOLE BODY gains weight. So, my arms, face, booty, thighs... all bigger.
Thirty pounds is a lot, for me. I can feel it. I can see it. But I've come to peace with it. It doesn't freak me out as much, and I think I know why.
Right now my plan of attack after I have the baby is to join a gym and go to a class. I really thrive on classes, with the loud music and everyone working together. I'm not so good at exercising by myself at home; meaning, I just don't do it. ;-)
Anyway, I am so super duper excited to meet Miss N (we picked a final name!!! It fits!!!) and snuggle her, nurse her, dress her up in cute little pink outfits. I am hoping she comes a bit early; it certainly seems like my body is getting ready. I think I get checked at my appointment next week, and although I don't expect to be dilated or effaced (I NEVER AM) I do hope that things are getting soft and ready. Is that TMI? Sorry if it is. :-P
I slept much better last night and am feeling LOADS better today.
I hope you all are doing well and that summer is in full swing wherever you are!
