Wowee… what a month (plus a week) it’s been!
In the past five weeks since my last bumpdate I feel like so much has changed. Not only has June been growing, moving and kicking like crazy, but the world around us feels like it’s in utter chaos. My heart has felt so heavy the past month, and there have been some days that I’ve really struggled with anxiety and depression. Thankfully things have been better as I’ve been able to talk through my emotions, have been focusing more on my mental (and physical) health, and just stopped to enjoy the little things like playing with James and hanging out with Isaac.
This pregnancy has been so different than James’s and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was ready for June to be here. I’m excited for those sweet baby snuggles and coos, and to be able to see my toes again. ;)
How far along?
33 weeks and 4 days
How big is June?
June is about 17.2 inches – the size of a lunch box!
I’m carrying June so much differently than I carried James. She is sticking straight out, which has made finding pants and shirts that fit over the bump harder and harder to find. I decided to get some maternity biker shorts, and y’all – GAME. CHANGER. They are so comfortable, big enough to keep wearing as I continue to grow, and they have pockets. I’ve also been taking a B Complex vitamin and Omega 3 vitamins to help with energy and my crazy emotions lately.
Still no cravings!
Goodness, it’s the third trimester y’all! My feet and hands have been swelling more easily, my hips and skin hurt from all the stretching, June is a wiggle worm and loves kicking my bladder, and I just feel huge. But we’re in the home stretch, and I’m taking each day as it comes. :) Thankfully it’s not all bad, and I’ve been trying to enjoy every moment of this pregnancy because I know I’m going to miss it after she’s here. Isn’t it funny how that works??
With the temps rising, my will to workout has taken a hit. But I’m trying to stick to around 3 times a week at Bar Method and walk as much as possible. My round ligaments don’t like my walks, so I try to not push myself too hard because it can really hurt for a while when I get back home!
High moment of the month
James has been showing more interest in my belly lately, and it’s so sweet when he snuggles with me and puts his hand on my belly. He still has no clue what’s in store for him, and I don’t think he has even realized when June has “kicked” him, but I know he’s going to be the best big brother.
Now comes the fun part… Will it be one or two more bumpdates till June is born?? What do you think?
