35 weeks pregnant with 35 days to go until our due date. The countdown is surreal but we are feeling more and more ready by the day. I’ve been taking the last couple of weekends to organize, re-organize, and I feel like I am constantly going to be doing this until she’s here. Would love to hear anyone that has advice as far as where to put what in a nursery/changing table. I am hoping to get a nursery reveal up on the blog before her arrival, but we won’t exactly know when she decides to come. I am hoping that she at least waits until 37 weeks, being full term! I’ve been back to feeling tired, hungry for carbs, and not to mention large this past week. The need for veggies is out the door, the gym isn’t happening, and I could probably sleep every day all day if it were up to me. Now I know why people get a lot of nursery stuff and things accomplished during their second trimester. The lack of energy is real! I’ll be pushing through, relaxing, and hopefully getting the last few details accomplished soon so I can just sit and wait for her to come! For those of you in the third trimester, how are you feeling? Ready?
