I just realised I haven`t done a bump picture post for this week. Not that I feel great, and not that I really want to take a picture of myself in this miserable state, but I shall... for y`all ♡.
I have been reading a bunch of `birth stories` online; mothers write about the whole labor and birth experience. Surprisingly it hasn`t made me nervous at all. Maybe I am in denial... I have this big bump, but will a real baby actually come out in the next week? I just cannot imagine how it will feel and how much my life will change.
At 39 weeks of pregnancy, all of Yoshi`s sisters and sisters-in-law had already given birth! And, as I may have mentioned before, all of their babies weighed well under 2800grams, a milestone that my little man passed weeks ago (at yesterday`s checkup he weighed about 3260grams)!
None of them really understand how I am feeling (heavy, heavy, stiff and sore and heavy), which is a little tough, but I am listening to all of their words of wisdom nonetheless and continuing to hobble about to the best of my ability.

Here are some things I can't wait to do again once the baby comes:
