nine months pregnant
35 weeks and 5 days pregnant to be exact, my belly is heavy and big and hard. It no longer gives when I bend or turn. It’s just there stopping any and every movement I try to make. Baby girl is moving around a bunch, way more than the twins did, so much so that I though something was wrong because the movements at one pint were so dramatic. But the Dr. says any movement is a good thing. Being pregnant with one is a whole other ball game than being pregnant with two, I would almost say it’s easy, comparatively. I am not a big fan of being pregnant, one or two. I don’t like being restricted in food or movement. But I can move a thousand times better now than I could at the same point in my pregnancy with the girls and I don’t have any of the uncomfortable symptoms I had last time. All that being said, I’m done. I know the longer baby cooks the better but Talia and Jordan were born one week after the point I am now, so if baby girl comes early, I’m sure everything will be just fine, and I’d be just fine with it.
I am scheduled to have a cesarean section on February 17th. My Dr. did not give me another option for delivery since I had a c-section with the girls. And I confidently chose to stick with the her because I felt she did such a great job the first time around rather that looking into other options. It was a little strange to choose my baby’s birthday, I chose not to have her on February 14th, I don’t think she would have liked to share her birthday with a Hallmark holiday especially when she becomes a teenager, but if she dose then it’s close enough that we can have a valentines themed birthday and a heart shaped cake every year.
Thank you to the incredibly talented photographer and styling team, who made these photos of this special time in my life possible, I can’t thank you all enough. I adore how they turned out.
