Hello Ninth Month of Pregnancy

Good afternoon and happy Saturday =D I hope everyone is enjoying the new year <3

Today, I am officially 9 months pregnant, and the feeling of reaching my last month is bitter sweet. Pregnancy has been such an amazing experience; my favorite part of it has definitely been feeling my baby boy’s movements grow stronger. At the end of 35 weeks, I no longer feel kicks and punches, rather, I feel full stretches, twists, turns and body movements. Once I give birth, I know I am going to miss these active movements that have become so soothing for me. Truthfully, I do not remember what it is like not to be pregnant, so it is going to be interesting to see how I readapt.

At the same time, I am at a point where I am so eager to meet him that I can not wait to go into labor. I am full term in a week and a half, so I find myself fantasizing about going earlier than 40 weeks. Also, after growing a baby for 9 months, my body is incredibly tired and could use rest. The transformation my body has gone through during this pregnancy has been astonishing, and though I enjoyed every moment of it, I am excited to get back into my physically active hobbies that I was told to stop during my pregnancy. Interestingly, washing the dishes for 5 minutes makes my heart beat as fast as working out used to do to me and I am equally as out of breath.

I have had 5 ultrasounds done throughout my pregnancy, and I want to show you the progression of my little marshmallow man.

This is my little man at 13 weeks and 3 days <3 When I first saw this, I instantly knew that he has inherited Matt’s lips =D

Here is my little marshmallow man at 34 weeks and 6 days =D He weighed 5 pounds 4 ounces, and this ultrasound confirmed that he has definitely inherited Matt’s lips! We also saw his hair flowing in the fluid. I wonder if he has inherited my thick hair.

This is the little man who gets the hiccups a few times a day because he is practicing breathing. This is the little man who responds to my touch and voice by giving me a strong movements. This is the little man who has been a part of me for the last 8 months. This is the little man who will soon be able to live independently from my body. I can not wait to meet him.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you have a happy Saturday! =D
