My last post was a bit of downer... Today started off good and then went cruddy. So I have decided instead of sulking I will veg out for a minute and do a fun little pregnancy questionnaire.
When are you due: December 5, 2012
How many weeks: 36!!
Was this planned or unplanned: planned
How much weight gained: 16lbs
Is this your first pregnancy?: Nope, 5th. 2nd to make it full term! :)
Latest food craving: Orange Juice, smoothies, cheese and crackers, food.
Your top two name choices or baby's name: not saying still
Worst Thing about being pregnant: squished bladder, not being able to get comfortable at bedtime, P-Spikes. (don't ask unless you really want to know) and right now being sick for 3 weeks while in the last stretch of pregnancy.
Best Thing about being pregnant: feeling life inside me, knowing that I will be holding a precious little baby in about 4-5 weeks.
The first person you told was: my friend Maria as we were out to dinner and where we were sitting she thought we had to order a beverage with alcohol in it.
Are you more scared or excited: excited and anxious.
Happy or mostly moody: moody lately
Last time you cried over something ridiculous was: Tonight
You pee an estimated __ times a day?: 35 times, SO over that!
Weirdest dream you've had since pregnant?: That I worked in the circus and wore this beautiful blue sequined gown and I taught little Jack Russel pups to jump and do tricks and drink root beer out of paper cups. I also (same dream) was the horse trainer and I danced with the horses. I would wrap my arms around the horses neck and the horse would rear up and spin me in a circle. :) Another wierd dream is I wanted to have my pictures done by Amanda K (an amazing local photographer here in southern oregon) Her and her team, along with me, broke into my old high school gymnasium that looked more like a gross car shop. We heard people and started hiding on shelves so as not to be found. It was weird.
Will you breast feed: for sure! Hopefully for the first year!
List 5 qualities you hope your baby will possess:#1. Happiness #2. A good cuddler #3. Curious #4. Patient #5. A gooood sleeper!
What's your ideal labor experience? Having
the will and energy to move around as much as possible and utilizing
all the natural pain-management techniques offered by the birth center with
my husband right by my side. To have a room full of love and laughter, good energy. To be surrounded by a group of special women. And of course as fast as Dillons birth or faster! :)
Have you been talking to your baby? Playing music?: I
don't talk to baby TOO often because honestly, I feel crazy when I do
that. Sometimes Dillon and I will say hello and some other little things. When I found out that baby was breech I started taping a headphone on the lower abdomen and putting on Pandora. Mostly piano music as I find it relaxing and so I listen to it as well at the end of the day. No words to the music. I can just re-center myself and focus on relaxing my body so that baby is in a relaxed environment too. The past few weeks have been stressful so I've been trying to listen to music every night. This baby LOVES music. From the worship in church to the radio on or a TV commercial. he/she will start to wiggle. I love it.
Words of wisdom : Remember to breathe and don't feel guilty to pretend you have to go pee again, just so you have a few minutes to yourself.
