36 weeks with baby #3

Friday, November 9, 2018

Helloooooooo week 36! It feels like week 38 because Bernie is following me around like he does days before labor and she's dropping low and I'm contracting and I'm so very ready! But jeez I feel like a goddess. The most beautiful I ever feel is the 3rd trimester of pregnancy. It's a glowy and painful time! hhaaaa. This pregnancy is very similar to my other 2. Except no back pain this time guys! Knock on wood. My other 2 pregnancy there was a dark period where I could barely walk for about 4 weeks...  THANK YOU YOGA AND MASSAGES! I do yoga about 3 times today...5 minute increments. It's done wonders! I've always splurged and gotten at least 1 massage a month.  In the mornings I feel smaller and comfortable... in the evenings I feel like I can barely freakin move. I'm so hungry but whenever I eat it HURTS. I've gained 15 pounds. I'm moody. I'm grateful. I'm very emotional. I have 4 shoots next week and 2 the week of Thanksgiving and them I'm on maternity leave! Woooohooooo! We will see if I make it until then. Ya never know. I really feel like she's coming early. River and Golden are finally starting to play together! They've been forced to be more independent with me at the end of my pregnancy and I'm so glad they figured out that being kind to each other is the way to do it. A friend for life! I'm in full blown nesting mode. Like OCD about it. I'm always cleaning. Always making lists and checking things off. I'm pretty much just an exaggerated version of myself except I'm unable to work out and sweat out the crazy. So it gets tricky. I'm happy. I'm soaking it up. I'm ready. I love you baby girl. I love you body. Thanks for growing these children.
