35 weeks is when I had the flu, for the second time. I didn't change out of pjs all week, but this day I actually managed to take a shower & dry my hair (b/c let's face it, wet hair & flu don't mix). So since I was clean and off the couch, picture day it was.
Loving: That I am nowhere near as swollen as last pregnancy! That link shows my feet/ankles at 38 weeks with Clara. Praise the good Lord my feet look NOTHING LIKE THAT!
Not Loving: That it sounds like I have just run a marathon when I try to talk after walking from the kitchen to the living room. Our house is not that big, people. We were shopping in Target the other day and I had to leave Brandon and Clara to go sit in one of those motorized scooter things. No lie. I didn't use it, but I sat there until they finished our shopping. I am choosing to believe that this is just a normal end of pregnancy thing, or the way Camille is positioned thing, and not that I am just ridiculously out of shape.
Oh . . . and varicose veins. . . I do not love you. At. All.
Favorite Foods: Orange juice every morning, Sonic ice (I justify this purchase by telling myself I drink more water when I have a huge bag of Sonic ice in my freezer. More water is better for baby, right?), cold cereal, and Mexican food.
Looking Forward To: Meeting our second daughter for the first time. I keep pondering what she will look like, if she will have hair, if she will resemble Clara. . . all of those things. Also excited about introducing Clara to her little sis for the first time!
Anxious About: The possibility of needing a C-Section. Sweet girl seems to flip flop every week, so it is a guessing game as to if she will be breech, or not, as we near our due date (only 2 weeks away!). How she has enough room to keep flipping her body all the way around I have no idea. I'm also getting anxious about managing Clara's current schedule (which is totally different this year which basically = more weekly appointments) with a newborn, all while I am recovering from labor and delivery. If my delivery is anything like last time, or if I have to have a C-Section, I just don't know how the first month or so will go trying to balance all of the above, especially when Clara is not yet walking and I won't be able to lift her for a while.
So. . . Prayers please!
Might fit in one more pregnancy post, or maybe not, depending on when Camille decides to make her appearance! Countdown has officially begun!
