Full-term, baby!

It’s been a week over here.  Leo has been a little grumpy and a little belligerent and up more than often at night (thanks last molar!).  I haven’t slept the best (partly due to Leo, partly due to pregnancy).  All the same, I’m excited to reach full-term and have good news!

  1. We had our home visit from the midwife on Tuesday and – hooray! – baby girl is in the right position, facing down and facing my back.  I’m very excited about that!  And we have everything we need.  She also said that if baby girl would come now she wouldn’t send me to the hospital but would go forward with homebirth.
  2. I’ve had some great runs this week.  This morning I ran 4 miles and managed a 10:10 average pace for the last two miles!  While running has felt surprisingly good, I’ve gone from running 6 or 7 days a week to 4 or 5.
  3. We also got the canvases in for baby girl’s room, so as soon as they are hung I’ll show pictures of the whole room.

I made some nursing tanks this week, too.  My sister currently has my nursing tanks from Leo, but I didn’t really like them anyway.  I got them from Motherhood Maternity but I found them to be pretty shapeless and baggy on me (not a sizing issue, more a fit issue).  So instead I bought two cheap tank tops – one from Amazon and one from Walmart – and followed a simple online tutorial to create my own nursing tank (I used this one).  The tank will easily fit with any nursing bra.  I think this will work much better for me since I was able to pick out tank tops that will fit better but are also longer (I like longer tank tops and my old nursing tanks were shorter).  It probably took me ten minutes total to sew two tank tops.  Those two tanks tops also cost me less than one Motherhood Maternity tank top (they were each about $6).  I’ll keep you updated when I actually go to use them.

So now just a poll:

  1. Hi, I started following your blog because you’re pregnant & you’re a runner. I’m 31 weeks pregnant with my first (32 weeks tomorrow) and I ran before I got pregnant. I’m definitely impressed that you’ve kept it up throughout your entire pregnancy so far! I definitely stopped running way before that. I wanted to keep running throughout pregnancy, but I was tired in the beginning and a little frustrated being so slow and having less endurance. But I’m hoping to get back into it once baby is born!
