Does anyone else feel like pregnancy is a cruel joke? I'm at 35-and-a-half weeks now and the nesting instinct has kicked into overdrive, but I can't do much before I have to sit and rest for a bit. SO frustrating. And clothing? Don't even get me started. I'm at the point where not much fits (at last not comfortably) - not even a lot of my maternity clothing. I have been mostly hanging out in my Old Navy maternity tanks, yoga pants, and this nightgown. It was my mother's and it's silk and is seriously one of the only things that is keeping me sane. Unfortunately I can't wear any of that to work, but as soon as I get home you better believe the first thing I do is change.
The other cruel thing is that all I want to do at this point is stockpile some Zzz's, but it's sooo difficult to get comfortable at night. One thing that has been my saving grace is this gigantic U-shaped maternity pillow that I "bought" with credit on Zulily. I couldn't bring myself to buy one the last time around, but since this one was essentially free I went for it, and I honestly don't know if I'll ever give it up. EV-ER. (Sorry honey). Kevin's seriously been such a sweetheart about sharing the bed with this giant fluffy monster of a pillow. I would buy it all over again even if I didn't have the credit. So worth it.
I keep trying to tell myself that this is easy compared to what I'm going to be going through in a few weeks (ahem childbirth, recovery from said childbirth, a toddler, AND a newborn), but the logical part of my brain has been taken over by pregnancy hormones. Anyone have any tips for getting through the last few weeks of pregnancy? I'd really appreciate any advice I can get at this point! xo, Lauren
