Currently...FULL TERM!!

No photo this week. I am a zombie. I don't even think I was this tired in first tri. But yay! I'm full term! 37 weeks...I must say I am quite surprised I made it this far with how much false labor I have going on. In the world of midwifery, some midwives don't even refere to it as "false", just practice. So, lots of labor practice going on. As well as.... midwife. I admire them all, but the time I spent with one in particular on Monday still has me in cloud 9 and ready to face this labor with confidence and no fear. I can only pray I am the kind of midwife she is someday.

Caring...for myself. It's really hard for me to be selfish sometimes as that is not in my nature, but I have had to really take time to just rest and relax and care for myself these last few days. My body is so achy and tired, so I'm trying to listen to its needs before I get too stressed out. The last thing I need right now is to get sick. amazing husband. He has been so caring, patient, and wonderful. He allows me to take care of myself and helps me however and whenever I need it. I don't know what I would do without him. I'm so happy to be going through this life and parenting adventure with him...LOVE YOU B!!! funny you should ask. You'd think by now that the nesting would have kicked in. Not so much. I cleaned last week when a friend was coming over and I did the dishes a few nights ago. We started to paint the nursery and other than that, no cleaning going on.

Creating...a space and place for this baby! I doubt the nursery will be done before baby arrives but that is not important. We have everything we need now...except a little outside baby.



  1. Full term is exciting! Breath held, it must feel so nice to have hit that "safety zone" and so glad to hear you are taking care of yourself. That's such an easy one not to do, but so so important. I think it's super funny that this is the 4th currently post I've read for this week (including mine) and it's the 4th one that was like "cleaning, nope" :)

  2. Congrats momma! Home stretch! Visiting from Currently : )

  3. I don't think I ever really nested. I was really hoping for that pregnancy symptom. lol. Congrats on reaching full term! Sending lots and lots of easy labour dust your way :D


Leave some Lovin!
