All The Feels Right Before Giving Birth

Two weeks today is my due date.

Holy shit!

July 2nd.

She’s moving and jabbing me most of the day and I just want to remember moments like this in my last two weeks of my pregnancy. I’m hoping she comes on my due date (not any later) because I am exhausted, can’t sit still, need to constantly pee, am hungry most days (especially today, ugh) and having Braxton hicks.

I swear, no matter what I ate today, it would NOT satisfy me. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring enough for lunch, so I had to succumb to a bag of chips that the office had. Did I want to eat them? Yes, they looked good, but they had a shit ton of bad ingredients, but I was STARVING, so I just ate the darn bag. Luckily, it was one of those bags you generally put in your child’s snack. Not my child, but you get the picture.

The chip ingredients have zero to do with how I’m feeling, but I just felt compelled to discuss that information.

In terms of labor, I’m nervous. I’ve been watching plenty of birthing videos to get prepared and I just need to get into the birth mindset. I know it will be temporary pain, so having that mindset will help me stop thinking negative thoughts.

I just want to hold her. One day I always envisioned myself being a mom, but to think it’s only a matter of time before it comes true is absolutely NUTS!

These are the last few weeks that my husband and I will be able to just go out and not worry about a babysitter. We won’t worry about figuring out when to go out between her feeding. It’s the last time we can be selfish and just cuddle or go on a spontaneous trip. I mean, you could do some of this stuff with a newborn, but you definitely need to put her first.

Some days I feel a tad emotional and then others I’m exhausted and then I’m just downright frustrated because I get out of breath so easily. It’s like a rollercoaster of emotions that I’m going to have to get used to and I know it.

So, here’s to the last two weeks of being pregnant! If you have any tips for me in terms of getting through these last two weeks, please don’t hesitate to let me know!
