I talked about my hopes of having my baby before his due date in my last pregnancy update and even then, I thought I would at least have him on his due date. Again, I was wrong. I’m currently overdue at 40 weeks and 3 days pregnant and I’ve being trying everything to naturally induce labor.
From having intercourse to eating pineapples and even taking evening primrose, I’ve done everything the doctor suggested. The only thing that seems to make any difference in the way I feel physically has been exercising.
I can vividly remember the first ballet class I ever took. I was in the 5th grade and like most little girls, I’d been anticipating joining a dance class for the longest. Space opened up in one of my church member’s classes and my first night (it was a Thursday I believe) marked the first class of a decade long ballet hobby.
Reading Ahni and Her Dancing Secret took me back to those days.
This post was totally supposed to be a video but I’m barely able to get anything done these days – the exhaustion is back (but we’ll get into that later) and I didn’t have many views on my last video update so I figured you all wouldn’t mind anyway.
I took a week (or maybe two) off from my blog and email with limited social media access because I just knew my baby would arrive early. Well, I didn’t know for sure, I was hoping he would. After listening to the predictions of my family and those closest to me, I’d had it in my head that he would come into the world at 37 1/2 weeks but…nah.
Can you guess one of the first things I did once the reality of being pregnant hit me?
I downloaded an app.
(Don’t judge me…it’s what millennials do, OK?)
Because I’m a first time mom-to-be, I literally knew nothing about the pregnancy experience. I didn’t understand exactly how pregnancies progress, what certain terms meant, what body changes and symptoms I would experience and the list goes on. Downloading a pregnancy app just made sense for me.
I chose to download the What To Expect app because of the popularity of its accompanying website. I downloaded several others but this was the first one I found to be useful – but it’s not without its pros and cons.
