That’s right … I’m 7 months pregnant now!! Crazy hey?! To be honest, my feelings and emotions have been nothing short of a roller coaster ride this ENTIRE pregnancy!! My first trimester was not good at all … I was sick and tired and mentally I found I just wasn’t myself!!
When my second trimester approached I really felt like myself again but I found that I wasn’t thinking much about the baby, I mean, obviously I realized I was pregnant … LOL … but I wasn’t really thinking about labor or giving birth … until I hit my THIRD trimester!!!
Now that I’m sitting here at the 7-month mark I am SO EXCITED for everything!! I’m excited about the delivery, the first night in the hospital room … I find myself wondering if she will latch … or what colour her hair will be … if Leo will love her right away, what our family dynamic will be like. You name it, I’ve thought about it!!
Physically in my third trimester, I have been fine minus the fact that I have very weak bladder control but I plan on going to see a Pelvic Floor Specialist for this as I don’t want to pee my pants in another grocery store like I did a few weeks ago (sorry, Nature’s Fare! LOL). I’ve also noticed that I’m on my feet too much lately (being the busybody that I am!), at the end of the night my feet and back hurt so much!! I literally worked right up until my water broke with Leo … so as you can tell, I don’t tend to slow down too much and I know that I’m not resting as much as I should be.
It’s also funny to look back and compare both of my pregnancies (so far!). With Leo, it felt like I was pregnant for a total of two months, it flew by! But … with my second pregnancy, it feels like I’ve been pregnant FOREVER (even though I know the next two months are going to whiz by!). Also, when I was pregnant with Leo I never craved alcohol but this time around it’s honestly all I crave!! Obviously, I’m not indulging in any of it but all I ever crave is a big glass of red wine!! I can’t wait until October hits and I can curl up on the couch under a cozy blanket with the fireplace going, both kids fast asleep, and a big glass of vino in my hand!!! LOL!!
Then there is the placenta placement … with Leo, my placenta was in the front so I didn’t really feel him much but this time my placenta is in the back and I feel baby #2 kicking and moving around SO MUCH MORE!!! It’s such an insane feeling!!
Speaking of my placenta … LOL … I turned my placenta into pills with Leo and I’m doing it AGAIN with this baby … I don’t know if it “worked or not” … but I DO know I felt AMAZING after Leo so I’m following the same suit!!
Recently I shared my nursery inspo blog with you (if you haven’t checked it out yet, click here!) and I’m happy to say that I’ve FINALLY ordered everything I need for the nursery and I plan on getting it all set up over the next couple of months!! Well … maybe I should cut that back to getting it done ASAP as I have a feeling I will be early with this one again!!
So that’s the update so far!! It’s been quite the process this time around and the days are starting to dwindle before we finally get to meet our little girl!! Even though I’m not getting lots of time off when baby #2 arrives, I’m still REALLY looking forward to it and being able to spend some quality time with my little fam and getting settled into a life with TWO babes!!!
