We’re in the home stretch! Only five weeks to go (hopefully I won’t deliver 10 days overdue like with Maxwell, but we shall see…) and I’m definitely counting down. Like, for real counting down. I’m sure it’s mostly because I have a 34″ sidekick with me during the day, but I’m so so tired this time around. Seems like one week I have a lot of energy and then the following week brings exhaustion. It’s a little crazy how diverse I feel each week.
Because I’m so far along (and my bump feels huuuuuge), my wardrobe pretty much revolves around the question, What is the comfiest outfit I can wear today? ;) Plus, it’s been super warm in Los Angeles! We finally have A/C in our cozy apartment so I’ve been wearing some pieces of my fall wardrobe just so I can wear a few of my most comfortable pieces! Ha.
We’re going to wait a couple more weeks before fully setting up the nursery. Our parents fly in the end of October (we’ll set up another bed for them in there, and we’ll move the heirloom cradle out to the living room). Aside from that there’s not much that has to be done, only wants and wishes. And, next week I start my weekly OB appointments!
Yesterday I bought a couple knotted newborn hats from Little Hip Squeaks (coral & mint) — I can’t wait for them to arrive. They’ll be going in our hospital bag for sure :) I read the other day in my weekly What to Expect pregnancy updates that the baby is about 18″ long and just over 5 lbs. Learning what’s happening on the inside makes me smile so big. It brings an extra dose of baby love!
Since this is my second pregnancy, I’m anticipating the delivery and my postpartum comfort. I’m definitely nervous to try for a VBAC (although this is something we’ve been planning with my OB all along), and I’m already thinking about my postpartum clothes. Do you have any postpartum clothing favorites? I ordered a couple pairs of these jogger pants (strawberry pink & iron heather) but I’d like to get a few new tops. What I have in mind is something nursing-friendly, but still cute/semi-fitted and full of color — any recommendations?
