37 weeks and 5 days.

I am now 26 years old! My birthday was on Monday. It was a super chill day. Woke up, went to my NST, went back home and got ready for the day. Jesse and I went to the mall in Pleasanton and went out to eat for lunch. Afterwards we just went back home and I relaxed while he played his video games, haha. We did go out to dinner to an Italian restaurant with my family later on, which was nice.  I was actually exhausted from the week prior. I had been busy doing something every single day of the week and I didn’t feel like doing much on my birthday anyways. The night before my birthday I had gone out with some friends for dinner and I had so much fun with them! We stayed out later than we all planned so I was quite tired the next day. I might only be 26 but I’m really like an old lady and like being in bed by like, 8/9 pm.

I’m so excited for tomorrow’s doctor appointment! I’ll be finding out my induction date. Of course I’d love to go into labor on my own but I have a feeling that won’t be happening to me, I think he likes hanging out in there! Plus, I haven’t felt any type of contractions or “lightening” (when baby drops). As far as how I’m doing physically/emotionally, I’m doing pretty good! I noticed if I wear sandals that my back will start to hurt. Mostly because they don’t have any type of support, so it’s not like I’m wearing much of them anyways. I’m feeling verrrrry large as of late. I just keep getting bigger and it won’t stop. I wake up so many times in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom it’s insane! Last Saturday we went to a Childbirth class and I can’t believe I almost didn’t sign up to go for it in the first place! We learned a lot and when the class was over all I wanted to do was go into labor asap! I’m crazy, I know. I want to feel contractions so I can practice the techniques we were taught. I’m really excited for labor to come and go honestly. Whenever I say I’m scared, it’s mostly at the thought of having a child to take care of. Birth doesn’t really scare me, it just makes me nervous because I don’t know what to expect. He’ll be here one way or another so I think that’s why I don’t stress too much over it. But taking care of another human when I’ve been selfish for the past 26 years of my life? That’s terrifying to me! Since I have experience taking care of my fur babies (bottle feeding, waking up every few hours to feed them, listening to them cry all night as babies, teaching them things, etc), I’m hoping it will similar to that. LOL. It’s close though, right?

Diabetes land is going okay. I keep having highs (150’s) before dinner because I tend to snack right before I eat dinner and the snacks I’m eating aren’t necessarily low carb (hello my bff Cheez Its). I have a feeling my doctors will be talking to me about that (AGAIN) tomorrow. Hopefully they’re not going to be annoyed with me since they literally just talked to me about it last week. At first I didn’t think it was a hunger issue, but I’ve discovered that it is. I get hungry before it’s dinner time. I don’t like to eat dinner too early and I try to wait until 5:30/6 so I end up snacking around 4. Actually just talking about eating right now is making me hungry. I’ve been craving a strawberry milkshake all damn day and it sucks to know I won’t be having it anytime soon. Earlier I had a kids meal from Jack In The Box, don’t judge. Their chicken nuggets are probably the best fast food nuggets around! Couldn’t resist them since I’ve been thinking about them a lot lately.

Well, it’s almost time! I can’t believe I’ll be 38 weeks tomorrow! So we have about a week and half left! Like I said before, I’m scared (terrified) and excited at the same time! I also just can’t wait for Jesse to be a dad. Prepare for me to try and dress them like twins whenever possible!
