Yesterday at the hospital they found that our baby wants to come out already. Probably wants to meet mom & dad hehe. But since I’m only entering week 33 now, it’s too early and I hope he’ll stay inside for some more weeks at least! Now I’m not allowed to do anything that includes walking or any physical effort, so my main place is the bed and sofa. This way we’re trying to calm the contractions and prevent them from increasing.
Today I had an appointment at the hospital again and tomorrow we’re doing an ultrasound. It’s a lot right now but I’m trying to stay calm so the baby won’t notice my stress. I’m in a lot of pain, it feels kind of like having the worst PMS pains ever and at the same time I’m having some upper belly pains every now and then. At some moments it’s okay and I can move ”normally”, but a couple of hours a day it’s so bad I can’t sit up/stand up etc.
This whole situation is making me pretty emotional (pregnancy hormones are doing their part as well haha) and I feel pretty overwhelmed. The tiniest thing, like we run out of zucchini when I want to make lasagna or something else not going exactly like planned feels like a way bigger deal than it is and I’m close to tears all the time. I can still look at the situation from a different perspective and laugh at myself since I’m being so emotional and silly haha. But pregnancy does wake up new types of feelings and especially the constant mommy instinct and worrying about the baby is so new and pretty intense.
I don’t really know what to do during the days now, I can’t even go for a walk with my doggy. I’m thinking about reading some mommy books and getting some girl power to stay strong these last weeks and getting energy to enjoy it! If you have any advice on books, netflix shows, youtube videos, whatever, I’m happy to hear them. <3
