Thanks so much for all of your amazing comments on my Third Trimester post. 🙂 You are all the best! I can’t wait to share my birth story and my journey back to pre-baby body (or what I can get back of it). I am already thinking about my post-Ella workouts. I may have to do a lot at home so I was looking over my inventory.
I am officially 39 Weeks today! Crazy!
Here’s the update I just got from Baby Center:
Your baby’s waiting to greet the world! She continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it’s likely she already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.
Let’s talk about my baby who is enjoying his last week(s) of being an only child 😉
A good spot for him (as Michael & I would say)…
It’s GORGEOUS out right now so I opened the windows for him….his favorite thing. I plan to go for a long walk shortly. I need a break from the gym and every person in there asking me when I am due, what I am having, wow can’t believe you’re still coming here, etc, etc, etc. It’s all nice, but sometimes I just want to workout and not chat. Having a huge basketball under your workout tank makes people compelled to converse with you, no matter if you have the headphones on and “the zone” look on your face.
So cute when he wrestles his kick-a-roo. Check out the back feet:
lounging on my glider…I don’t mind:
NOT good spots for him:
Ella’s changing table..I had to cover it with a receiving blanket because he has taken a liking to it:
if we never know where he is anymore…it’s most likely he’s in the crib. Michael and I always says “going to check on the baby!” Poor thing is in for a rude awakening soon. He needs to find a new favorite spot.
I even filled the crib up with stuff, but he still nuzzled his way in.
Since Ella wasn’t here for Passover dinner I told Munchkin he could wear her bib for a little. He was rubbing his head on it and lying on it like he wanted it. True Story.
He’s been extra affectionate lately…I find him on my belly or lying next to my belly early in the morning purring his head off. It’s SO cute. Yesterday he fell asleep on my lay with his paw on my belly for an hour. My leg was asleep but he was too cute to move. Once Ella is here I am going to be working double time just to make sure I give him all the attention he needs in the moments she isn’t needing me! Michael already knows that he is on Munchkin attention duty for the most part too.
Hahaha….now that you all think I am crazy I am off to go take a long walk…
then make one of these:
then get a prenatal massage with lots of pressure point therapy and reflexology to maybe move things along 😉
Today was going to be my first day of maternity leave but I was bored just thinking about it so I emailed 2 of my clients I didn’t get to see last week (they were on vaca) about working out tonight. So I see them and 1 person tomorrow morning then it’s no more work for me!
Enjoy your day!
