I'm finally caught up!! We're actually right on track now at 34 weeks, and I think these last 6 weeks will fly by! Especially because I don't think it'll actually be 6 weeks. I know they say that most first time babies come on or after their due date, but Mini acts like she wants to get out right now, so I just have a feeling she'll make her debut a little early.
How far along: 34 weeks! And Mini is moving a grooving along. She's head down, measuring right on track, and does somersaults all day long. Sometimes I feel like I just need a break, but Dr. C said that the movement is a great sign of blood flow and oxygen. Whippee! But I seriously don't know where else this girl is going to go. I'm shocked she still has room to move around so much too. I've totally traded in the back and rib pain for soreness in my pelvis for sure.
What I'm craving: Water! Especially right at this moment. I just ate a little bit of cotton candy and am totally regretting it right now.
How I'm feeling: Emotionally, I'm really sad. I went to see Dr. C this morning and very casually mentioned a trip to Austin next weekend. My baby sister is graduating from high school and I was going to have one final sprinkle with my Austin girlfriends. Unfortunately, Dr. C was not comfortable with me traveling. Honestly, it didn't even occur to me that a drive down to Austin would be a big deal, but even though she doesn't think at all that I'll go into labor next week, she still doesn't want to chance me being away from home if something were to happen. She didn't explicitlly say "no you can't go." It was more of, if you didn't have something special going on, I would have told you to not go, but I'll let you make the call kind of thing. When I told her that I probably wouldn't go, she was immediately relieved and said that she just really felt like it was getting too close. Again, it never even occurred to me that it was a big deal, so the fact that it was a brief mention that turned into a thing, makes me really feel like God had something to do with it and I just need to listen. But it still makes me really sad having to miss my baby sister and this huge chapter in her life.
What I bought this week: I bought her car seat today! I'm so glad to finally have it ordered, but freaking out a little because it said it would be here around June 26.. that is way to close to my due date, especially if she comes early. So all of you mama friends out there... I might be hitting you up to borrow a car seat :)
What I'm most excited about this week: I still have this surge of energy, so I definitely want to take advantage and clean up my house, put things together, go shopping, etc. I'm ready for the clutter to disappear and everything to finally go in it's place. I'm also super excited about a three day weekend and hope I can get to a pool. I just need to remember the SPF 100 since I burned super bad last time I was out in the sun!
I'll keep you all posted if I actually go into labor this week :) But I just want Jasmine to know how much I love her and how sorry I am that the timing is off for me to not be there physically be there to support her. Please don't get mad at Mini.. you may end up being her favorite aunt since you'll be the closest in age and will teach her how to dance.. Just don't tell Krystal :)
Love to you all!
