Only 3 posts until the end of Nablopomo

3 posts including this one until the end of Nablopomo. I don’t know if I will be able to post much in February once the baby arrives.

I can say I have been so lucky that I have gone through my pregnancy without much trouble. I am only starting the uncomfortable stretch where it hurts, it feels like being outside my pyjamas is not normal, sleep is full of un-nightmarish nightmares (I wake up all sweaty from a dream that doesn’t feel like it’s a nightmare), I’m tired, I’m impatient, all I want to do is eat.

I started drinking more coffee again. There was a risk of premature birth but now that I’m in 38th week, the risk is not there anymore.

I worry about contractions. I keep wondering if what I’m feeling is a contraction or the baby moving or what. I will know when it happens. But until then…

What I won’t miss :

  • snoring
  • drooling when I sleep (more than usual)
  • stuffy nose
  • colds
  • not being able to bend at my waist
  • people treating me like I’m made of glass
  • being so damn  hot all the time
  • sweaty feet
  • having to pee a million times a day

What I will miss :

  • people leaving me their seat in the subway
  • all the alone time in the world
  • feeling the baby inside me
  • having a good excuse for having a big round belly
  • luxurious hair
  • beautiful nails
  • leg hair that doesn’t grow

What I’m looking forward to :

  • eating brie
  • eating sushi
  • drinking 3 cups of coffee a day
  • going back to my more intense training
  • seeing my bf with the baby
  • seeing the baby for the 1st time
  • counting toes and fingers
  • hearing his voice
  • watching him sleep
  • long walks with the baby and the daddy
