Pregnant Laura Update: 34 Weeks + 2 Days

April 18, 2017

Buenos Dias Familia de Daily Dubie! 

I’m bringing the Spanish back strong…because you know as well as I do that Baby C will be bilingual. He’s so advanced…

Here’s the latest as far as Pregnant Laura is concerned: I’m 34 weeks + 2 days. I’ve stopped weighing myself, but I can tell you that my bump is 40″ in circumference. Seemingly small tasks are exhausting, I drink no fewer than two La Croix’s daily (I prefer Pamplemousse + Lemon), and I surprisingly (and ironically) sleep like a baby, with the exception of waking up to pee, at minimum, twice nightly. Not bad, from what I’ve read. I’ll take it.

We took a childbirth class all day Saturday (10am-5pm). Of everything we learned, HB cannot wait to give me multiple massages during the 1st stage labor (there are 3 stages, for those who don’t know).

For the record, my sweet husband is not the best at giving massages (more so because he loses interest in about 30 seconds). Lol. I bought him this to help…

The highlight of my day was when HB learned how to do “the hip squeeze” and “sacrum press” on me. It felt wonderful, and has now been something “I need” daily since Saturday. <insert evil grin>. This obviously helps relieve the unfathomable pain and pressure  I am about to be feel in those areas…although in a weird way, I’m not phased by it at all. I’m not afraid of pain. (I say this now, but we’ll see how things progress once I’m actually in labor)…I’ll be live streaming it…Yeah fucking right.

As promised, here is the latest on Baby C’s room. It’s coming along…Not finished yet, but I’ve given you a tour. HOLLA!

That’s all for today…

Peace.

Third Trimester Excuses Are Legit!

April 6, 2017

What up Daily Dubie Family?

Hi! It’s me, Laura…the chick who promised to prenatally post regularly. <peeks behind hands>

Yeah, well, it should go without saying that that went out the window.

I’m pregnant. Duh. I get a free pass on everything. But for real, this third trimester thing is no joke. Baby C is starting to take up A LOT of real estate (and energy). He’s already a hefty five pounds (!), and Mama can feel it.

I am 32 weeks + 4 days today. That means, if I’m lucky, I only have 7 weeks left. THAT’S NOT A LOT…and it’s all just starting to hit me. I started crying to HB the other day because I realized that it will never just be us alone, ever again…And listen, I know that we will take romantical vacations just the two of us, however, we will never again be a family of two. Our lives are about to change monumentally FOREVER.

And, on top of it, I have a feeling our sweetness will arrive a bit early, which is perfectly fine with me (obviously, I already have my bags packed).

Look at my monster belly! HELLO! 

That’s me….+25 pounds deep…and speaking of which, would it be in bad taste to register for a waist trainer? I’m just saying, Mama has MILF goals post-baby. (I’m totally serious about the waist trainer).

The good news is, I’ve still been working out 4-5 days / week with Pilates, yoga, and light cardio + weight training on my own. I think it’s really helped reduce, but not eliminate, the aches and pains…Although, I have to say, recently, I almost always feel like I’ve been riding a horse bareback for days when I walk. The pelvis is a-widening…

In other related news, I have a Pilates studio no longer in the apartment.

Also, very emotional…

…but BABY ROOM IS COMING ALONG!

Now we just have to put everything in it’s place! Mama Joan is coming this weekend to help me get it all set up. I can’t wait!

Finished product coming soon…

In the meantime, bite on this:

Namaste. I love you.
