35 Weeks 2 Days: I can't believe we're almost there...

Seriously, there are like, 4 1/2 weeks left and that's it.

That is insane.

Lil' Chicken moves all of the time now.  I can usually feel his butt and his foot.  (At least, I think it's his foot).  It feels so cool when he stretches.  It's all like, "Woooaahhh!!" Crazy to think that there is a human being that is alive inside of my stomach.  He has his own thoughts and own experiences.  I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around it.

It's been a pretty easy pregnancy, when I think about it.  Ok, so my hips and pelvis are pretty sore, and my lower back gets crazy achy.  But other than that I really can't complain.  No heartburn, no hemorrhoids, no sickness, no swelling, no vision changes, no acne, no complications.  I still taught Zumba® up until 2 weeks ago, and still attended class until last Thursday.  (Had to stop because of BH 2-8 min apart for 4+ hours after class last week).  Yeah I'm tired and achy, but it's really not all that bad.  And it's pretty cool to be able to feel my little boy kick and move around in there.  He's so cute and I haven't even seen him yet!  I can't wait to see his cute little face and hold him close to me and tell him that he's safe and loved.  I wonder if he knows how loved he is?  How much he's wanted?  I can't imagine being pregnant and not wanting your baby.  Such a weird thought.  I love my lil' chicken SO MUCH and he's not even born yet!  I can't wait to meet him.  He's going to be so precious.  I know Kevin is excited, too.

Now I just wish I knew what to do about my job....

Anyways, just wanted to update!  Maybe I'll post a pic soon :)

32 Weeks, 6 Days: Everyone Knows Someone

Everyone knows someone who has a freakin' birthday in February.  I swear, every time I give someone my due date they're like, "Oh!  You should have your baby on the 17th! That's my uncle's best friend's sister's birthday!"  And I'm all....blink. blink.  Yes, there is a good chance you know someone who has a birthday in every month of the year.  And guess what?  I don't care.

Ok.  That sounds mean.  But seriously!

So I had my first stranger rub my belly on New Year's Eve!  She was so excited--AND she asked permission.  So I was fine with it.  I don't mind so much now.  I minded when I was just fat and Lil' Chicken was the size of a pea.  At least now he's all wiggly and stuff.

Weight is up to like, 137.  Poo.  Creepin' closer to 140.

Little one is so wiggly!  I love his little rolls and movement.  Even the occasional jab.  So cute.  I can't wait to hold him!  Hypnobirthing classes start Wednesday.  I'm excited.  I get to learn to relax!  And breathe.  I can't believe how fast this is coming up.  OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG.


Started our budget yesterday.  Then Kevin forgets his lunch and spends $5.  Blink. Blink.  So I took it out of grocery money since at least he went to Publix.

Been having lots of braxton hicks.  Not today so much, but New Year's Eve was pretty bad.  I was getting nervous.  Also, been having lots of light headed/dizzy spells.  Seems to be pretty normal for 3rd Trimester, but thought it was worth noting.  I need to pull out my good camera and get the battery charging.  I want to use it in the delivery room and for after giving birth so we can take good pictures of our little chicken!  He's gonna be so cute!


I have a whole day off--my third day off and all i'm doing is sitting on my a$$ on the couch.  I feel pathetic.  I'm so sick of sitting around.  I want to want to do things.  But I don't.  It's irritating.  Very irritating.  My only block is my brain.  HOW DO I OVER COME?!

I just don't know.
