34 weeks

In my thoughts the house stretch began at 30 weeks, however the REAL residence stretch begins round 35/36 weeks whenever you enter into the “I can’t keep pregnant eternally and I’m actually uncomfortable” zone. In fact, the chance doesn’t actually go up till the days round your due date, but it surely’s nonetheless thrilling to suppose that assembly our child goes to occur within the close to future (knocking on wooden, at all times.)

I’m satisfied he’s going to return early for no purpose aside from I’ve been feeling a lot extra this time round. Many extra Braxton Hicks, extra twinges and stress down there. Sometimes I’ll rise up or shift my weight in such a means that I really feel like he’s going to fall out! Braxton Hicks have gotten extra frequent and intense these days. I had one in the course of the night time that was so intense I couldn’t transfer! It wasn’t painful in any respect, however I simply couldn’t actually bend to get off the bed. It lasted a couple of minutes too. I usually get them at any time when my uterus modifications – getting up, sitting down, rolling over, waking up, going to the lavatory. This must be signal my physique is gearing up, proper?

34.5 weeks

Sleeping goes as finest as might be anticipated. Rolling over is difficult, and if I don’t transfer slowly I danger cramping and/or my pelvis popping on this scary-sounding-but-not painful means. The snoogle pillow has actually saved my life. I don’t suppose I used it to its full potential final time! The jersey pillowcase I obtained for it was a complete recreation changer (it’s simply so mushy). My glutes proceed to throb within the mornings, however I tuck a lacrosse ball below there and lie on it for a couple of minutes and so they appear to launch quite a lot of the stress. Typically in the course of the night time, in direction of morning after I’m actually beginning to ache, I make a donut with the snoogle and lie ON it and the reduction to my aching is INCREDIBLE. It’s arduous for me to spend the entire night time on my abdomen donut, however after I do take the time to do it, it’s heavenly. I can’t wait to sleep on my abdomen once more! I nonetheless snicker after I learn my Mazen recaps as a result of at 35 weeks final time sleep was the subject of the week too!

35 weeks

I’m making an attempt to remain as energetic as potential this time round. I feel final time I used to be simply going to power class and strolling. That’s just about what I’m doing now with cycle courses thrown in, however I’m positively pushing myself extra at school than I did final time. I’m making an attempt to keep up my power, particularly understanding I’m going to be taking a while off. Nonetheless doing a little leaping, cardio interval strikes, and utilizing 15 pound weights (I keep in mind I used to be all the way down to 10s final time.) I critically don’t know the way anybody may run this pregnant, a lot much less run a marathon!! However I do know individuals do it!

I flip flop between feeling enormous and motionless and feeling completely regular. It simply is determined by the day and the hour. His actions have gotten to be so huge and dramatic in there, and I’m beginning to actually really feel how huge he’s – and getting nervous about him popping out!! I’m really most snug standing up, and all of the lounging positions are the toughest. I attempt to sit with my legs criss-cross on the sofa, and mendacity down is simply not very snug in any respect. So it’s arduous to chill out! However it’s additionally arduous to face all day, so there’s simply no snug place at this level.

Loopy Braxton Hicks:

You know the way you used to take off your pants whenever you had been little? You’d push them down after which alternate stepping on every leg till they had been inside out? That is one of the simplest ways for me to take off pants nowadays as a result of bending over and standing on one foot is only a wee bit too tough.

One new symptom I’ve is swollen and sore fingers. I’m solely sporting my engagement ring as a result of my wedding ceremony ring was feeling form of tight, and my finger joints really feel stiff! I don’t actually look swollen, however I feel I have to be.

Brother @ 35:

Mazen @ 35:

Talking of Mazen, he’s in whole instructing mode along with his brother already. We learn books to him collectively, and we present brother methods to take a shower, or methods to placed on an outfit, and so forth. It’s really been an effective way to get Mazen to do issues he’s not into. Instance: “Mazen! Let’s present brother how you are taking your dinner dish to the sink!” It makes me so excited to see all the lovable issues they’ll do to work together when he’s right here.

I mentioned at dinner the opposite night time “I feel brother goes to have black curly hair like Thomas” and Mazen replied “No! He’s going to look similar to ME!” We will see, Mazen…!
