It’s starting to feel real up in here!
To think I am about 5 weeks from such a life changing event is pretty freaking crazy! I’m beyond excited, yet a bit terrified sometimes thinking I haven’t quite finished reading all my baby books, or learned how to tie the moby wrap, or even figured out what parts go to what in my breast pump. Eek!
I know I still have time and some of these things will just come post baby, but still…I feel ready yet I don’t.
Exercise this week:
Not feeling it this week at all. Even doing yoga was a stretch because all the positions seemed so hard and were even a bit painful. So I’m listening to my body and not pushing it by any means.
- 45 mins of yoga
I’m not a big one for buying things online since I feel like pictures can be deceiving sometimes, but when I saw this diaper bag reviewed on the Project Nursery blog awhile back I knew it had to be mine.
The J.J Cole Caprice diaper bag arrived yesterday and I couldn’t be more excited to sport this darling thing around. It’s like a big new fancy purse and besides all the great reviews it has a great amount of storage space, seemed really affordable at $69 and bonus..is super cute too!
How I’m feeling:
Holy ligament pain! This week has been the worst yet for the ligament pain and it’s kind of freaking me out. I wanted to cry so bad yesterday because it felt like my pubic bone and the muscles around it were on fire/being pulled so tight. Ugh! The only thing that makes it bearable these days is to take a warm bath.
None of the other silly pains that have come and gone throughout the week can compare to my discomfort with the ligament pain. I know it’s technically growing pains from my pelvis, so I don’t foresee it getting much better over the next few weeks.
What’s still to do:
- I have an appointment with the hospital on April 8th to get my car seat installed and checked out, so hopefully baby boy waits until after that date to make his appearance.
- I also have to assemble our pack n’ play (since I’m temporarily living with my parent’s I opted not to buy a crib here and just use the play yard for a few months for him to sleep in).
- I’m signed up for breastfeeding class and class called “Happiest Baby on the Block” in April which should be interesting
Even though there are few things I’m unsure about, I’m still pretty excited for the future. It’s weird to think I’m going to be a mama soon!
It’s getting harder and harder for me to look down at my belly since it’s growing so big!
