I was hoping not to have any more updates… But apparently, little Natalie is nice and cozy in there and doesn’t want to come out just yet. I have been doing lots and LOTS of walking and stair-climbing.. But nothin’. At least not yet!
My newest and most exciting symptom has been swelling. I am actually swelling so much that it’s causing poor circulation to my arms when I’m trying to sleep.. This is just another thing that is hindering a good night sleep. Well, that and the need to pee at least 5-6 times and being huge and uncomfortable.. Ha.
So as you can tell, I’m having a hard time staying positive these days. I really do love to be pregnant! Well, mostly.. I love feeling her move inside my belly! But the last few weeks are the worst and she has been the hardest pregnancy of mine so far. So I am definitely ready to hold her in my arms and have my body back to myself (except for nursing)!
Tonight, I’m going to eat some more sushi (cooked) with a good friend and maybe lots of wasabi will help spice her out?? Who knows!
Until my next doctor’s appointment on Tuesday, I’ll keep up the walking and see how it goes.
Wish me lots of luck and send over prayers and labor thoughts for me!
