How Far Along: 35 Weeks
Symptoms: I developed SPD this month and it’s pretty painful. I never had it with Cliffy! The Braxton Hicks have started too so that’s kind of exciting because it makes it seem like delivery is near!
Food Cravings: Orange juice!!! REALLY into orange juice every single morning, which is funny because that was my biggest craving in the first trimester with Cliffy and I think this one too.
Food Aversions: Nothing in particular except for the fact that I just don’t care about dinner at all. I’m starving pretty much all morning and then past 3 or 4 I’m just not interested in eating at all.
Wearing: Leggings, tees, and my favorite GAP jumpsuit is so cozy. Now that we are under a stay-at-home order with all of this Coronavirus madness, we don’t leave the house anyways so it’s all about whatever is the most comfortable. And the options are rapidly decreasing. Everything feels so tight on my belly lately.
Best Moments: I CANNOT believe I am just 4 short weeks away from when I gave birth to Cliffy! It blows my mind and I’m SO insanely excited to meet this little boy!! We have totally finished shopping for him and his room is finished, so I’m just anxiously awaiting his arrival now!
Worst Moments: The pandemic has been by far the worst part about this month and probably will be the worst thing about the entire last month or so of my pregnancy. So much concerns me: Cliffy and I are at home 100% of the time, but Nate is obviously still going into the hospital everyday so I’m very worried about him getting sick and bringing this horrible virus home. Not only would he be potential banned from the hospital the entire time I am there delivering the baby, but if I get sick and test positive for the virus, they will keep me quarantined from the baby the moment he is born, for 14 days. The thought of any of that happening is horrifying and I get really emotional if I think about it too much, so I’m trying my best to stay positive and look at the bright side. As long as we have a healthy baby at the end of all of this, that’s all that matters. But this is definitely stressful and not at all how I saw my last trimester panning out. It’s kind of devastating.
Looking Forward to: Finally having my baby in my arms and getting him home! I just want the pandemic to be more under control by May so we can bring our baby home and just enjoy him and not worry about anything else.
Missing: Being physically comfortable and strong coffee.
