Pregnancy Month Eight





Hello month eight! Okay now we are talkin!

 

 

 

What a crazy long journey it has been to get this far. Baby is the size of a cantaloupe and it probably feels like it on your bladder!

 

I remember my eighth month I was over it but remember even though you are done being pregnant doesn’t mean baby is done growing and finishing up those final touches. Baby is safe in your womb it is the absolute BEST place for them to be right now until they are ready to come out. I get it, your back hurts and your pelvis is so sore you feel like your baby could fall out at any moment, but just hang in there. You are so close so take these last few months to rest, rest and rest if you can because when baby is here you won’t have that opportunity. 

 

 

Your baby.

This month is a huge month for baby as they are starting to pack on some pounds and cushion so that when they are born their organs are nice and protected. The tiny hairs [Lanugo] is starting to fall off and their little limbs are flailing and they may be rolling around like they are on a playground. I remember my kids freaking out when they would feel my youngest during this month, the hard kicks would scare them and my oldest even said it was like I was pregnant with an alien. He even made a matrix reference when Neo had the bug placed on his abdomen and asked if that is how baby sister made her way into the stomach.

Um. ANYWAYS, Baby is keeping you guessing with their hiccups and punches and kicks! Keep growing baby rocky! 

 

 

Your body - What is happening.

At this point you have may have gained a decent amount of weight and again, don’t be so hard on yourself. Make sure you are sticking to a healthy diet of fruits, veggies and proteins but don’t you dare skimp out on that chocolate, you deserve it. Your baby is still relying on you to take good care of yourself so they can do their best to also grow strong and healthy. This month you should “HOPEFULLY” have your birth team figured out, where you plan to deliver figured out and some even know how they plan to deliver. If you still have questions and concerns about any part of labor and delivery reach out to your O/B or midwife, doula if you have one [we are an awesome source of help in that department] and you should be taking all of the naps.

 

 

What you should do this month. 

This month you should focus on finding a pediatrician for your baby. This is important because you will want to stick with the same doctor for a while so your child can get that bond and connection as they get older.

Enjoy this time to rest and finish preparing for baby.

It sucks being a single parent of child with a disorder, specifically for me, ODD. I am regretting being a parent. And that is a sucky feeling.

Being a single mom is very challenging sometimes. I feel like I’m doing everything but not enough at the same time. Finding a balance between “Mom” me and “regular” me is so hard, and sometimes I just feel alone.
