3rd baby 36 weeks

Here I am at 36 weeks today. I'm tired. In the past two weeks I really have felt like the maternity train ran me over. My face is often flushed (as pictured), my right hand has been very achy, last week was my last week of continuous jogging.  I was averaging about 9:30 min. miles that last week, but my back and belly could feel the strain after just 1.75 miles, so I decided this was the week to switch to walking. I've walked twice this week with both boys in the stroller. It's easier, but takes longer. I was in regular clothes today on my walk and I couldn't help but jog a little bit a couple times. I averaged 15 min. miles.

I've been sleeping worse lately too. Nightmares. Hot. Hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. You know, normal end of pregnancy symptoms.

We've had two classes with my doula, and afterward Matt told me he felt a lot better for me. He's a lot more confidant than when I first started talking about a vba2c, and I think he finds a lot of comfort in the fact that I have a doula and he won't have to be the only support person for me! I actually have to agree, haha. He longs for the "good old days" where fathers waited in the waiting room. I'm getting excited and a little scared to have a 3rd little guy to look after. It's close!  I'm very confident about the vba2c being successful.

Comparison pictures of the last two pregnancies are found here.
