And here we are…almost 39 weeks. This will be my final pregnancy update and to say I am excited/nervous/ready is an understatement.
I’ve been doing a lot of things over here to get my body ready and to help get labor started. As of right now, I’m feeling like I did the few days before I went into labor with Madelyn, so I know she’s on her way. I’m trying my best to be as patient as I can, but I can say waiting around for baby #2 is much more difficult than it was the first time around.
Up until this week, I’ve been feeling really good. Almost too good to be true, leading me think that I would be pregnant forever. I’ve been seeing an acupuncturist in Bay View who specializes in treating pregnant women and also seeing a chiropractor throughout my pregnancy. I think the combination of these two are the key for feeling so great throughout these last few weeks of pregnancy. That and staying as active as I possible can with barre and walking.
I’ve been having irregular contractions and other things happening since Saturday morning. So naturally, I went for a 3 mile walk this morning and cleaned our house from top to bottom. Nesting happening in full force over here this weekend. It’s hard for me to sit still when I keep thinking that moving around will help her get into a good position for active labor to finally start, but I finally put my feet up long enough for me to write this post.
This pregnancy has had its shares of ups and downs (lower back/sciatic pain early on) but overall it’s been mostly all good. I’m so thankful that I was able to do this again and that I had a very healthy, uncomplicated pregnancy. Now all I can do is wait and pray that the delivery goes just as smoothly as it did the first time around. We’re ready for you baby #2. Can’t wait to meet you 🙂
