Baby Three: 40 Weeks!

Today is 9/13/20 which means I’m 40 weeks!

Baby Lamotta is due 9/13/20!

Baby is the size of a fresh watermelon!

Baby Lamotta is a GIRL!

I’ve gained… 28.4 pounds as of Thursday.

Midwife appointment this week? I have one tomorrow afternoon!

Current mood: For today being my due date, I’m actually pretty content still being pregnant. I think part of me is in denial that I’m actually about to birth another baby.

Cravings: Yesterday I had the weirdest craving – egg rolls!

Food Aversions: Mexican and anything spicy or acidic that’ll cause heartburn.

Currently rocking: My birthday suit in the tub! Lol but I was wearing a Ricrac dress most of the day. 😛

TMI: The Pepcid is only doing so-so with the heartburn. I’m pretty sure I have SPD which would explain the pain I’ve been having in my hips/groin when I go from sitting to standing and rolling over in bed. Someone mentioned it to me and it clicked like YES that is totally what is going on with me and making me miserable.

The best thing about pregnancy this week? Soaking in these last few days of being pregnant for the last time.

What’s different about baby #3 than with Jude and Hattie’s pregnancies? I’ve officially (as of 7:30pm today) been pregnant longer than all of my pregnancies. This little girl is stubborn!

I’m nervous about: the pain. Being responsible for three children. Not being strong enough to have another natural birth and caving for pain meds. I know there’s nothing wrong with needing the assistance but since I’ve done it without before, I think I’ll feel defeated if I can’t this time.

Other thoughts: I am really curious what day this little lady will actually come!
