Pregnancy. Really can get the best of ya, can’t it. Between hormones raging, a growing to-do list with nothing getting checked off, and a baby that could be here ANY day, pregnancy is really a tough thing to battle sometimes. Ups and downs, ups and downs.
We had our 34 week appointment last week and I learned that the baby is breeched, humph. I never had this with Ivy or Leo, so I was upset knowing that a breeched baby = a possible version to turn baby = possible c-section = one possibly really unhappy mama trying to recover while caring for 3 littles. I left the appointment pretty devastated, totally knowing I was overreacting and assuming the worst, but again, those hormones, ugh, just really get the best of you. This is something I really have no control over (I’m not good at accepting that!), these babies have minds of their own! Thankful for my friends who helped me feel better! I didn’t know so many of you had breeched babies so late in your pregnancies! I know I have hope and I’m clutching very tightly onto that, while doing every weird maneuver possible to get her to turn. Just ignore me in Barre3 class if you’re ever with me! ;)
Anyways, what I’m getting at is that this stage is so bittersweet. You’re between getting to relax because you still have a good month or so (you hope!!!) till baby and are soaking in every last second of that, but you’re also the highest strung you’ve ever been with sleeping like absolute shit at nights (what’s with this restless leg syndrome business?!!?!), peeing a gazillion times during the day (four times last night, ugh), baby sitting on your sciatic nerve (OUCH), having a million things to think about and do (can’t turn my brain off at night!!!), and oh yeah, picking a name (how the hell).
While I can’t wait to meet this baby and see her with Ivy and Leo, I’m going to try to relax a little bit and just laugh at all of this chaos, because frankly, the chaos is about to get even more chaotic! This is my last pregnancy and I suppose I better enjoy every good and bad about it! For goodness sakes, we are growing a BABY, and that’s a miracle on it’s own. I need to appreciate that more! These ups and downs will come and go, but the love we have for our kids will be here forever.
So here are some cartoons that are sure to make every mama chuckle :)
Umb… yeah. CAN’T SEE ANYTHING
Basically. Thank god for kids and making them pick things up! ;)
