I dont understand how I’m already so close to meeting this little guy. This pregnancy has FLOWN by. I’m starting to get extremely nervous and my anxiety is kicking in. There is so much to get done and it feels like so little time!!!
I’ll get right to it; heres my bumpdate!
How far along: 33 weeks and 5 days
Weight gain: About 20 lbs
Cravings: Last time I posted my bumpdate , I was craving m&ms. That craving went away (finally lol cause if I ate one more pack of m&ms I would have exploded) I started craving fruits and veggies again! (This is all I ate while pregnant with Tanner) Mcintosh apples, clementines, carrots, and green grapes have been my main craving!!
How I’m feeling: I’m not going to sugar coat this… If I said I was feeling great I’d 100% be lying.
Physically: I’m physically exhausted. All the damn time. It doesn’t matter how much sleep I get, this kid is sucking the life out of me. My body hurts to the point where I feel my bones aching. My tailbone is on fire and it aches to be at work the one night a week I am because I’m on my feet for 8 hours plus. When he kicks or moves, its not this amazing feeling you expect, it’s actually uncomfortable. (Dont get me wrong, when I feel him move it makes me happy but often it’s more of an uncomfortable feeling then a yay this feels great feeling) I’m trying my hardest to stay positive but unfortunately this is the truth some pregnant women go through. This is the truth that some women are ashamed or embarrassed to admit because pregnancy is supposed to be such an amazing experience right? Unfortunately for me this time around it’s anything but that. And I’m being honest about it because it is ok to be feeling this way! So if you are feeling this way also, don’t beat yourself up! You’re not alone!
Emotionally. I’m emotionally drained. my hormones are raging. I’m emotional over the littlest things. When we moved Tanner’s furniture in the bigger room, I cried. I cried when we set her up in the toddler bed as well. I heard a song on the radio the other day “Boy” by Lee Brice and bawled my eyes out lol. I’m still not emotionally ready to have another baby to take care of. I’m not ready to share my time with Tanner. I’m emotionally drained just thinking of how different its going to be.
I’m not trying to complain here, (sorry if it comes off that way) but not all women love being pregnant and I’m not going to lie about how I’m feeling!
Nursery: Don’t even get me started. We found a set, turned out too big, found another set, it had bad reviews, looked one more time, found literally nothing. I didn’t just want to pick anything and settle. So what we finally decided to do is we’re moving Tanner’s furniture back into the nursery for baby Memon and we got Tanner a new toddler bed. We already had a smaller dresser in the guest room that we will use for now. As soon as Tanner’s big girl room is fully done I will definitely do a blog post on it!
Name: We are set on a name which we’ll share once he is born. We just need to narrow down a middle name. I do have one that I’m really shooting for but I need to get Faheem on board! With Tanner we had one picked out early on, with this one its a little bit harder! We’ll figure it out eventually! We still have time!
I’ll share another bumpdate soon! Let me know if you have any questions!
As always, thanks for reading!
