Wow, September flew by! I am officially 26 years old! My birthday was yesterday, and I had a really chill day with family. Dexter surprised me with tickets to see Death Cab for Cutie at the Berkeley Greek Theater & it was AMAZING! I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday surprise! I’m ready to make twenty-six an amazing year, it’s definitely going to be a milestone age (the year I become a mother, what can top that?!)
I am already 30 weeks pregnant, and I turn 31 weeks on Thursday! WOW. It’s so insane, I only have 2 months and 5 days left until my due date… but she can be here as soon as 37 weeks & be considered full term! AHHH!
I’m a lot more uncomfortable now, and I cannot be on my feet for long periods of time anymore. For instance, when I was at the concert we got there at around 4:30-5, we stood and waited until the doors opened at 6 & the concert was done by 10! I was DYING by the end of it. My feet and back hurt so bad, and the day after the concert I felt like a truck had hit me. Ha! It just made me realize that I cannot do stuff like that for the time being.
Some more pregnancy symptoms: I have been experiencing Braxton Hicks, I’m out of breath a lot of the time, and I found my first stretch mark on my stomach! 🙁 I was sad about the stretch mark, but I can’t dwell on it because I already have them on my thighs and such. I’ll keep rubbing oil/lotions on them, and hopefully it won’t be too bad.
My baby shower is on the 6th, I’m excited, but also stressed because I want everyone to enjoy themselves and have a good time. I have my baby shower outfit ready, I’m going to get my hair done at Dry Bar, and I have all my decorations bought for the event space. I’m hoping to get some beautiful pictures from the event, and post them here! Stay tuned… Hope you all have an amazing rest of the week! I need to go pack tomorrow for our road trip down to Southern California on Thursday.
