Eeek, it's the final month!
- This week, all I want to eat are orange Popsicles and strawberry smoothies. Just writing it down makes me really want one (or both). I'm also still loving cheese and crackers, but whenever I try to eat any Fynn steals them on me.
- I'm noticing more and more how every day tasks are getting harder and harder to do. A clear sign that the end is near.
- I'm also semi-nesting- as in I'll get all these ideas in my head of things I desperately want to get done... and then be too exhausted to actually do much of it. I have a short list of must-dos for the next week (including actually packing a hospital bag). Other than that I'm trying not to stress.
- This week B is the size of a honeydew melon- 17.2-18.7 inches long and 4.2-5.8 pounds.
- This week is also the start of weekly OB appointments. You know, that time when you feel like you live at the doctors and your OB is actually your BFF.
- All the preggo symptoms seem to have become more severe this week; from constant, intense back pain to heartburn that makes me want to chug milk all day long, it's getting pretty uncomfortable.
- The worst pain right now is my hip though. We've reached the point where it's started popping in and out of joint this week (not a typical preggo symptom, just a lovely one I get to experience because of a chronic hip issue). I honestly wasn't sure the other night if was going to be able to get it back in, but after some stretching and a lot of pain it finally did.
- B dropped this week, like a couple of inches. We had two snow days (Tues and Wed) and when I went back to work Thursday everyone was commenting on how low my belly looks. It's made it easier to breathe, but has put even more pressure on my hip, and my bladder... so I'm not sure if this is a win or not.
- This week we hired my long-term sub which is such a relief. In interviewing several people I was so happy to find one who just felt like a good fit for my students any my teaching style. I'm bummed I can't have the same sub I had when I was out when Fynn was born (that woman was AMAZING, but has since been hired full-time for the district), I'm hoping this sub will be just as awesome and I won't have to stress about leaving my babies for 12 weeks.
