We just moved into a new home and let me tell you, there is one good thing about moving while in your last trimester: NESTING! I actually feel quite accomplished when looking around- the boxes are disappearing rather quickly and I am already not picking clothing out of my luggage.
Pregnancy seems to be going so quickly this time around, and I assume it is because I have another little one to focus on. (That and I am way past the nausea phase, so besides not being able to see my feet when I look down, I can play it off that I am not as pregnant as I truly am.)
Being at the end of the road so to speak, I really am trying to do everything I said I would this time around. After labor with Little W I remember stating, “I SO did not do enough squats!”. So, guess what I get to do a million times a day? (It helps to have a toddler that leaves toys around the house- a great reason to get down and pick up the living room while stretching out those much needed muscles.)
I heard the same thing from another mother who recently gave birth, which required many squats to help progress labor. I guess I am not the only one who thought my initial few squatting sessions were enough. So, if you are not doing what feels like millions of squats a day, maybe you should go do a few more! HA!
In fact, maybe I should go do a few more. Just let me finish my 12th glass of water for the day. Then I’ll put my feet up for the night.
Enjoying the journey.
