Pregnancy Month Seven





Hello sweet baby pineapple!

 

 

Oh goodness how your baby is growing! What an exciting month because this month you are entering  your third and FINAL TRIMESTER. What a relief in so many ways. You may have had a rough start, it may have been hard to conceive, you may have had zero support but things have turned around or things have been smooth and wonderful. WHATEVER your journey has been you are an incredible person and you are so close to that finish line. 

 

 

Your baby.

Baby is developing fast and growing like a weed! This month your baby's organs are on cruise control and making all of those final touches so in a few months they are working perfectly for baby to do well on the outside. Baby is also opening and closing their eyes! Oh how sweet! Those eyes are getting ready to lay eyes on you! By the end of this month baby can easily weigh at least 3lbs but remember every baby grows at different rates for different reasons so don't be alarmed by the size on ultrasound unless your doctor voices concerns. It is easy to compare your baby’s growth to a friends but don’t do that because there are so many variables that come into play. 

 

 

Your body - What is happening.

Holy pelvic pain. Hello! What is that PAIN. Well that is your baby getting bigger and due to baby getting bigger they are starting to push pressure down onto your pelvis and as baby gets bigger, you will continue to feel that pressure. Constipation is still a lovely thing at this stage so is fatigue! I remember this month that kicked into full gear on top of that it was the beginning of summer so I was tired and sweaty, lovely. Take naps when you can and try to rest because as the next few months creep in you will begin to grow even more making it harder to rest.

 

 

What you should do this month.

Chat with your healthcare provider about kick counts and how to make sure you are doing that properly, start discussing your birth and what you want out of the experience with the people closest to you. What are you hoping to gain from your labor and delivery besides the obvious, a healthy baby. Start to figure out your birth team if you haven't already and make sure you feel comfortable with everyone experiencing your journey with you. 

 

 

SO CLOSE you are SO CLOSE. 

Now go take a nap.

Relationships

I am an asshole and snap at my partner often and I try to apologize as often as I can for being such a hot mess I hope they don't start to view me differently. I do my best! Anxiety is a bitch but I am a work in progress.
