3rd trimester feels…

Still alive, still pregs and I started that final trimester. 😱

oh, and I cut off all my hair because #momChop #helloHormones

This last week has suddenly gotten real for me. Like- I’m not just going to be pregnant forever- at the end of this we’re actually getting a baby. A prospect that is so exciting but also anxiety producing. πŸ˜…

I am regularly feeling miss thang kick me and I’m also peeing what feels like every hour because she’s really squashing my bladder. πŸ€ͺ

My baby shower is next week and I’m super excited about it! I booked a photographer for newborn pictures. πŸ₯³ These are the fun parts of this week for me.

Annnnnd the other side of it is that this evening I spent time researching and choosing my ‘birth plan’ and ‘what to pack in your hospital bag’ and signing up for an online breast feeding class and buying postpartum supplies on amazon. πŸ™„ (I had never even heard of most of these products or their uses…like seriously…. tucks, lanolin cream, perineal cold packs, spray and bottles. Ice packs for your nips?! Which gave me a mini anxiety attack but it’s fine, it’s fine. 😬) This is the stuff no one talks about ever and you finally go and get pregnant because you’re “ready” and it’s like SURPRISE this is going to WRECK YOU. πŸ˜‚ Women suck for keeping things like this a secret. Ya’ll suck.

I also started a baby checklist for all the things I need to remember to do like call the pediatrician, make sure the insurance gets switched to a family plan, get the car cleaned and pack the hospital bag, get the breast pump ordered, wash the baby clothes, clean the whole GD house….my heart is having palpitations. This list is getting long and the bottom line is I’ve never done this before and it’s the biggest THIS I’ve ever done. So there’s that. There’s the anxiety attack I’ve been waiting on.πŸ‘

Hope this post made you laugh – making jokes is my only defense against crippling anxiety. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
