How I'm Feeling: I'm really low on energy. This growing boy is taking it all away from me. I've taken a nap every day this week because I'm just so tired. Otherwise I feel good. My back isn't hurting me nearly like it was and some days it doesn't even bother me at all.
Cravings/Appetite: Fruit is sounding particularly delicious these days. The Farmers Market opens tomorrow and I can't wait to see what kinds of yummy fruit they'll have. My beloved morning cappuccino is giving me indigestion now so I think I'm going to say goodbye to it for the remainder of this pregnancy.
Clothes: Just enjoying my normal clothes and this awesome weather!
Changes in Me: I've started to have some cramping/contractions. I can tell he's super low and the pressure can be shockingly painful at times, especially when he moves his little head. I still feel like I have to be so delicate when I toss and turn in bed because it will pull on my belly/stretch my ligaments if I make a sudden movement and it hurts like woah. I've been feeling extra clumsy lately and it seems like I drop stuff a lot. Annoying. Bending over to pick things up is the last thing I want to do these days. Overall I just feel like I'm in this daze. I'm constantly aware that life is about to change and it's pretty much all I think about.
Baby Purchases: I ordered a Woombie swaddle this week. I had one with Campbell. They're great for those first few weeks. The one we have of Campbell's is really better once they get to be a tiny bit bigger (10-13ish pounds) because it's a little stretchy. I wanted one without much stretch to be able to use right away. I should get it in the mail tomorrow and I'm hoping it will be pretty tight. Tight swaddle = better sleeping baby!
Looking Forward To: The Farmers Market tomorrow! I love going to the farmers market on Saturdays and have been looking forward to this opening weekend for a long time. I remember checking a few months back to see when it was opening and when I saw the date I knew I would be super pregnant by then. Here we are! I anticipate we'll be spending the remainder of our Saturdays at the Farmers Market until Bennett makes his debut.
