A Bumpy Road

This has definitely been a bumpy road. But in the best ways!! I’ve figured out how to do life with a baby bump that is a constant reminder of what is to come. That more or less, might be ACTUALLY bumpier. Being a mom is going to be the hardest thing I have ever done. But I am ready for it! All of my energy and priorities this last month of pregnancy has been catered to the “next” phase of my life. MOMMYHOOD.

Nesting is a really thing. I am getting this place ready for our little baby bird.

Sometimes it is hard to go through pregnancy knowing that my husband is not experiencing the same sudden urges that I do. My husband doesn’t want to nest or prepare baby’s room. He wants to build up his car and ride his bikes. I guess men prepare in their own way. Yeah? He’s probably thinking he needs to get as much of all what feeds him before Baby Bennett gets here. I hope that it is an okay transition for him. I hope, that for me, it is as well. It’s interesting to me how different women and men approach pregnancy and preparing for a baby.

I am 39 weeks tomorrow! I am so so close. The midwife said that she is comfortable with me going 42 weeks. However, I am very much open to a conversation come the week 41! I’m not thinking I will be very comfortable. The discomforts I have right now are manageable. But I know that Baby B will just continue to get bigger and bigger.

We have an ultrasound on Tuesday. I am praying that everything will be okay. At the growth scan our midwife told us that Bennett looked like he may have a dilated bowel. From my understanding- that means that there may be a potential intestinal blockage. This would make it very difficult for him to digest food and would require surgery after he is born. The first scare as a new mommy. I am putting my faith in God that everything will be okay. An MFM doctor will take a look at it on Tuesday and confirm. I hope there is nothing to be wondered about. I am so grateful that Shelby will be able to join me for that appointment. God, please look after our little boy. I want nothing more than a happy, healthy baby.

This pregnancy has gone really well. I am so grateful for that and honestly so humbled as well. I know that it not the norm for women to be as mobile and strong throughout their pregnancy. I have enjoyed being able to do much and definitely take advantage of that. I have hiked, walked, even jogged occasionally with this belly of mine.

It has been a bumpy road- but next stop- BABY LAND. 👶🏼
