I’m in the 9th month of my pregnancy and just about two weeks shy of my due date! I figured I should get a few words in before the big arrival of Little Little. Especially since it’s looking like he may be here sooner than expected. I’m currently dilated to 4 cm and 70% effaced. My contractions have been more frequent, yet not too close together. I never was dilated with Baby Baby at any of my appointments, so it’s hard to even think my body is preparing itself without me being in active labor, lol.
The 9th month hasn’t been so bad, some days are better than others but for the most part my energy has been great. I tapered down on my running early July but stayed active in my Mommy & Me workouts up until now. I’ve kept the mentality if I feel good and I have the okay from my Doctor, then go for it. For a little bit mentally I was getting stressed, the saying one is one and two is twenty was floating around a lot. It was making me nervous about what I’m going to be venturing into next on my journey through Mommyhood. However, I’ve been able to relinquish my worry through prayer and I know that this gift I’ve been given to bring another child into this world is God’s plan, my plan and purpose.
The past two weeks I finished up last minute purchases, organized our home for the 100th time, and my family hosted a baby sprinkle for me. One of the biggest things I’ve tried doing is taking advantage of the time I get to spend with my husband and son. It’s crazy to think it’s not going to be just the three of us. I know the transition into a family of four is going to be a challenge. A learning experience, as always…but a precious one. I’m praying that I get to continue to feel these kicks for a couple more weeks but, we’ll have to see. When it’s time, it’s time <3
