Well 37 weeks means we've officially reached full term. Baby boy is head down and constantly kicking me in my ribs and gets hiccups at least twice a day.
As part of my hypno-birthing practice I've been imagining seeing him and holding him for the first time. It's been so hard for me to imagine what he looks like for some reason. I know he'll look similar to Sawyer, but WHAT will he look like!? So for the practice I just imagine him looking like a little old man Sawyer. haha Sawyer was so squished and had Friar Tuck hair when he was born. I cannot wait for another tiny babe to hold and squish!!
I got in two cardio and 3 resistance workouts this week. When the weather was hotter, we went on walks all the time. and now it doesn't make since haha because we aren't going on our walks as much. The weather is so nice, but we mostly end up playing in the backyard or just playing at the park. So i've had to really stay motivated with my cardio workouts.
Today Sawyer rode around on his 4-wheeler and I followed him around the neighborhood. I put it on high speed so I would have to walk really fast to keep up with him haha
I had indigestion a few times this week.. uhhhh, but other than that I'm feeling great. I'm definitely more tired, and sleeping at night sucks. But overall things are great.
Yesterday Jeff told me he was going off refined sugar for 1 month. So I've been searching and planning some of my favorite "healthy" treats. I don't believe in cutting myself from all treats, because it always almost ends up with binging.
A few dinners we have planned this week, are bbq chicken pizza, turmeric chili, enchiladas and salmon tatziki tacos.
We're ticking off things on my "before baby comes" list, and its making things more real. I've started feeling a little scared to have another baby and what it will do to my relationship with Sawyer. I haven't felt like these feelings all pregnancy, because I know everything will be ok. But it's still scary and crazy and so unknown.
This week we pulled out the basinet and set it up in our room, we got the carseat out and washed. I ordered the sweetest little knotted gown from Lou lou and company. It's so soft! I have a few blankets from them, from when Sawyer was born and i'm so excited for baby brother to have something of his own. Really can't believe were so close!
