Life has been busy and the days have flown by. I am finally full term. It seems crazy to think that in three weeks (give or take depending on when Baby decides to arrive) we will have a new baby in our lives.
We had a super duper exciting maternity photo shoot this past Saturday, which was a ridiculous amount of fun! It took me a while to decide if I even wanted to do a 'bump shoot' but I decided that it is definately a time I would like to remember and even look back on with a different perspective of my pregnant body than I have at the moment. I am sure that one day I won't believe or remember how big I am!
I always thought that the reason pregnant women were so slow to move around was because their bumps were sooo heavy. But now that I have one of those seemingly enormous bumps, I realise that while it certainly makes things more interesting, it isn't the main offender. It is everything aching on the inside - muscles, abs, ligaments, lower back, shoulders, neck, pelvis, ankles, soles of feet, knuckles, etc. - that keep me from bounding out of bed or up from the lounge. So many little ailments attributed to major structural changes all working against me at once. Fun fun.
So we are 38 weeks and 3 days today. 11 days to go until our due date, but I am starting to get the feeling he may decide to stick around even longer than that. This makes me sad. And frustrated. I admit, I was not so secretly hoping baby would be here by now!
