    Heathir & Zakiyah Logan

    35w 2days

    w/g: 17lbs as of last tuesday - hopefully lost some while on vacation with all the walking we did

    s/c: While on vacation we did ALOT of walking so although I thought LO was low before, now he is even lower and I feel like he's ready to fall out. Had lower back pain and some hip pain along with mild swelling in my hands and feet (probably sore and swollen from all the walking)

    Other: Now that we have returned from vacation its time to get to work. I have to get the baby's room ready asap and then pick up a few minor things before I will be 100% ready for him.

    Next D/A: tomorrow 8/9 - every week now

    I feel ya on that Megan...
    This pregnancy has been so much more uncomfortable than the last and I am ready to hold this little guy in my arms, get my body and my energy back! I feel like such a lazy mom lately because DS and I have spent most of the summer in the house away from the smoldering heat!...
    capriciousangel31 replied to Zaysmama's response:
    It's been hot in WI today was our first cool day since June 1st!!!
    Normally I try not to be lazy but since being pregnant I don't want to do anything especially the last few days even getting up to go to the bathroom is too much work lol
    At least we know it's worth it in the end
