Today marks the 36 week point in the pregnancy.. it seems like time is flying by! Only 4 weeks to go.
I still feel like there is so much to do, but things are getting done. Luckily Adam is more ambitious than I feel like being right now.
The baby’s room is pretty much ready. There are a few things I’d like to do, but it’s ready to be used. My house could use a deep cleaning (floors/walls scrubbed, windows washed). But I’m not sure if it’s going to get done, oh well if it doesn’t. Maybe I should splurge and hire a cleaning person?
I had a checkup yesterday and my Doctor said the baby is sitting low in my pelvis and that I am measuring perfectly! I also lost a couple pounds, which is normal for the last month. My feet and ankles have started swelling so I am trying to rest as much as I can. Which is not practical while chasing a toddler around. I also have been watching what I’m eating and avoiding salty foods. I also haven’t been able to eat as much.. so I’m sure all of that accounts for the couple pounds lost.
I am feeling tired and am moving a lot slower. My ribs ache and it’s just plain hard to get comfortable. I’m probably not sleeping the best, as I am up a few times at night (either to use the bathroom or with Wyatt or both). Otherwise, I’m feeling good! I’ve been able to keep up with my gardens at home… little by little I get it all done.
I think the last time I blogged about a family update I mentioned that Wyatt was screaming before bed and taking up to 3 hours to fall asleep. Adam and I finally concluded that there is NOTHING wrong with him and that he just simply wants us to stay with him in his room. So now we’ve been letting him cry it out. It was really difficult for me the first two nights to let him do that. I don’t know if it’s just because I’m pregnant and hormonal, but it was gnawing away at me and had me practically in tears. Now it’s been about 6 days and he’s doing a lot better. He’s still cries, but not really crying .. more like protesting and whining which I can handle. He’s staying in his bed and only whining for about 15 – 20 minutes. I can handle that! I am positive we were making it worse by going in and out of his room trying to coax him to sleep. We always let him put himself to sleep.. so why did we even start helping him in the first place? I guess just you just learn as you go, right?
