Single Digits!

I am down to the wire!  I am nine days away from my due date, and I can't believe that I will soon meet my baby.  If I don't deliver by my due date, July 15th, I will be induced on July 17th due to his size.  I really, really don't want to be induced, so I am hoping that he'll come on his own.  I am getting a massage today and a pedicure tomorrow, and I'm going to ask both of the people "working" on me to hit every trigger point possible! 

We are having our ninth day of triple digits temperatures, so getting outside to walk is difficult.  Lately I've been heading out around 9:30 PM and it's still in the mid 90's!  I have been doing squats in hopes that may work.  While I used to be a rockstar doing squats, I find it so much more challenging now which makes them difficult and exhausting.  I may just have to go to the gym and walk on the treadmill even though I am so fearful that my water will break. 

Sleep has been worse than ever!  I average about 3-4 hours of interrupted sleep a night, but I try to remind myself that it is great preparation for when baby arrives. I find it impossible to nap during the day which frustrates me because I know I need to sleep and reserve my energy, but I can't.  I'm having SI joint pain (previous injury) and sciatica, so lately when I lie down, I am pretty tingly and numb from my hips down.  It's such a crazy feeling and it keeps me up at night.  This little guy also likes to have a party all day long and sleeps very little so he keeps me up at times as well.  I think I'm finally ready to evict him.

Above is Dog snuggling with her soon-to-be brother and feeling him kick.  So sweet!

Below is video of this baby kicking me for hours at a time!  It's getting really old!
