Motherhood Monday: 36 Weeks

Today is a big day! I am 36 weeks and go for the next ultrasound scan to see if my placenta has moved enough to allow me to birth naturally. I have blogged about this here and here but basically my placenta is "low lying" and too close to my cervix. This is common and 90% of the time it moves out of the way by 30(ish) weeks....but mine didn't. So I go again for another scan to see if it has moved to at least 2 cm away, if not then it is a planned cesarean for me and my bug. SO WISH US LUCK! Say a prayer, light a candle, send love vibes, whatever you believe in! The bug and I are praying that we will be allowed to work as the natural birthing team we are! FINGERS CROSSED! I will let you know how it goes....

Today is also a big day because it is Monday, and I am an NOT at work! That is right kittens this mamma is on maternity leave and LOVING IT! I got up this morning and asked myself "Kami, what do you want to do today?" and it felt so good! I am planning on using these next 4 weeks to nest, sleep, go for lots of walks, craft and read lots of books. I am also currently painting a picture for above the bugs crib, Ill post a sneak peak picture for you all soon but to give you a involves FOXES :)

Yesterday was also Mothers Day of course, not usually a good day for me as I blogged about here, but it was AWESOME! Everyone kept telling me it was my "first mothers day" and although I felt silly at first I really did enjoy myself. As the hubz said I have been "mothering" the bug for 36 weeks now and so "of course" I can celebrate mothers day. He made the day so special and surprised me with flowers and a D-LISH mothers day brunch! The whole day was great and it was full of:

 Decaf mocha coconut frappucinos....YUM!

Fun adventures thrifting in Value Village...the shirt in the belly shot above was scored today!

We found tonnes of great stuff for the bug including a set of wood blocks and these CUTE shoes!

I also did lots of crafting....some new items coming to the Etsy shop this week!!!! I am so happy to have time to craft again! I am so tired lately that a full Mon-Fri 9-5 work week was pooping me out leaving little time for crafts....but until the bug is born I have nothing but time! HOORAY! And I can nap whenever I want, double HOORAY! hahaha!!!!

So off I go now to the is hoping the bug gave me a mothers day gift and kicked my placenta out of the way! xoxox

Peace, love and pickles!

  5. I am super tired and not up for much blogging today, will post an update tmrw I promise. Thanks for the love ladies! xo

  6. I know that you want to go the natural route - but just keep in mind that no matter HOW your beautiful baby gets here, you will still be a team, working together to get the baby into this world.

    Your bug will come however he/she needs to, and they can't do it without your help - I just don't want you to think you're not going to be an awesome kick-ass duo if your body isn't in the exact frame of mind.

    :) Get plenty of rest!!
