With May 1st only a few weeks away, I’ve been doing more planning for when the baby gets here. We don’t have the crib setup yet, but that’s because we’re waiting on a new bed for Eamon, which my mom bought for him. This way we can convert his bed back into the crib. We’ll probably buy the mattress for Eamon’s bed before it arrives so we can have the crib put together before the baby is born.
Now that there isn’t that long to go, I’ve been losing more and more sleep at night. That’s mostly due to not being comfortable sleeping on my sides because it feels like muscles are being torn and it stings a lot. And sleeping on my back is awful because the weight of the baby on my back is horrible. I can feel my ribs being pushed out and then when I sit up, I can feel them move back since the baby moves down due to gravity. It is a very uncomfortable feeling! No one said that when you go through another pregnancy that everything feels worse! My first pregnancy was easy compared to this one.
If you don’t know how far along I am, here’s a ticker from Baby Gaga:
After the baby is here, I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to write, but I hope to aim for at least once a week, if not more than that.
