Well here we are on June 9th and our little Hugo is already nearly one month old, but I never finished my pregnancy belly pictures for the blog so I am catching up. Also, I am missing a few weeks: 34, 35 and 36. I thought we took the photos, but I am not sure where they ended up, unfortunately. Those weeks are a bit of a blur in retrospect. So anyway, here is what my world was like during the final weeks of pregnancy for Jillian Kent!
I didn’t make it past 37 weeks. My water broke on Saturday May 9th and I delivered on Mother’s day, Sunday May 10th late that night. The photo above (37 weeks) screams at me how tired and how in pain I was by that point. Up to 36 weeks, I had really felt great, but then he dropped and I had the worst pelvic pain that my doctor said would only be relieved by delivering him which was really discouraging at 36 weeks but luckily I didn’t have to deal with it up to 40 weeks. By the end of the pregnancy, I had moved into the guest room so I could toss and turn and snore and fart all I wanted without disturbing my husband (oh the joys of growing a human). I had a wonderful pregnancy pillow and all my usual amenities like earplugs, my martini glass blanket, pillow, my ipad, my pregnancy books, water bottle, bubbly water, cuddle dog Rio, and of course my antacids, all at arms distance.
And now, here I am with a baby! But that will come in another post. Still need to post photos from my wonderful baby shower!
