The above photo is me at 33 weeks. It was taken yesterday morning right before leaving for a Stampede breakfast. I don’t normally wear button up shirts like that – except during Stampede. My facial expression is worse then usual in this photo – Greg always manages to take the worst photos of me!
7 more weeks left! I am excited for this pregnancy to be over for many reasons: meeting baby, no longer being huge and pregnant, no more heartburn, being able to “sleep” on my stomach, not having to use the bathroom every 90 minutes regardless of how much fluid I have drank, no more aching back, and no baby trying to kick their way out of me!
Despite all of the above, this pregnancy is still leaps and bounds more enjoyable then Finley’s. This baby is CRAZY active – way more so then Finley was. I swear she is gonna kick a hole in my belly and then somersault out. I swear she never sleeps in there. I am just happy that I am carrying her lower then Finley because Finley destroyed my ribs!
The heartburn disappeared for awhile but came back with a vengeance late Sunday and I have been suffering since. It doesn’t matter what I eat or don’t eat, when I eat it or the portion size. I just get it all the time. I really do feel sorry for those who suffer from this all the time. My mom and one of my Aunt’s are on prescriptions for heartburn because they get it so bad ALL THE TIME. It’s truly a terrible thing to have to suffer from on a daily basis!
Although I am happy that the weather was so nice last week, the heat was almost unbearable for me. Thankfully, I only had to work 2.5 days so most of it was spent in the comfort of my own home. I also must thank the city of Calgary for purchasing c-trains with air conditioning. You have no idea how wonderful it is to be pregnant and cramped in a ctrain but with air!!! I was pretty happy with the rain both Saturday and Sunday nights – it was much appreciated by this pregnant gal.
My body is also feeling like a furnace which is not good in the middle of summer. I am HOT all of the time. I have all the windows in the house open and sleep in tank tops and shorts with no blankets. Greg thinks I am crazy. If I (we) decide to have another baby it will definitely be better planned with a expected delivery month of April or May. I know I said this last time, but I mean it this time!!
Last week I met with a surgeon regarding my c-section and got my date booked. I am pretty excited for this day to come and am counting down weeks and days. Publicly I say 7 weeks left but realistically it is less then that! I have another pre-natal appt on Wednesday and am hoping that it goes well….will keep you posted on any changes or developements!
