🤰🏻 #37weekspregnant ✨⠀
.⠀
If you're a mama you've been there. Late in your third trimester and you desperately want to meet your little person who shares half your DNA and won't stop kicking you in the vag. And so every time you feel a cramp, a wiggle or a jiggle you run to the bathroom to check your giant underthings for gross stuff. You will google👩🏻‍💻 It's inevitable. Here's what you will find when you succumb to the powers of Google:⠀
.⠀
1️⃣ If you're between 37-42 weeks pregnant, you will probably go into labor soon.⠀
2️⃣ Your water may break before active labor, but it probably won't.⠀
3️⃣ You may or may not noticeably discharge something attractively called a "mucous plug" into your large underwear. This may mean that labor is coming within the next 24 hours, but it could also mean that it's weeks away.⠀
4️⃣ An internal exam can reveal how far along you're dilated and effaced, but the information will be entirely unhelpful in terms of predicting when you will go into labor.⠀
5️⃣ You will almost surely not give birth on your due date, so don't expect to (unless you're having a scheduled C-section).⠀
6️⃣ Your baby may or may not "drop" days, weeks, or hours before you go into labor. This does not help to predict the timeline but does help you breathe again.⠀
7️⃣ If you have diarrhea, nausea, an achy pelvis, insomnia and/or Braxton hicks contractions while walking around Costco, congratulations, you are pregnant. At some point, you will likely give birth.⠀
.⠀
Your chances of discovering some buried telepathic post deep in the trenches of an anonymous ‘What to Expect’ forum that tells you the exact date and time your bundle will arrive are slim to none (I know, I've looked)🤦🏻‍♀️.

🤷🏻‍♀️ Maybe take up knitting? ⠀

A few clips from my workout this week because holy cow I'm still able to make it to the gym 🙏🏻, though I def feel like I'm lifting for two! 😆 Workouts have gone from 4-5x per week to 1-2x per week and at a much lower intensity 🐢. It's like my body went into power save mode!
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The average task takes me A LOT longer than normal and simple things like getting out of the car makes me wonder how the "oh shit" handle is still there, but I can't complain.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am trying to soak up every last moment of this pregnancy, even the not so fun sciatica, pelvic pressure and back pain. I'm embracing the changes my body has made, the bigger everything, the pepperoni nipples, the cankles, etc.. But soon I'll be holding little Emma and facing new challenges. So "bring it on" I say! I'm always up for a challenge 🤓.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. The cat cow stretch is one of the best stretches to give your back some relief during pregnancy. I've been incorporating it several times a week and it has helped me tremendously. I do 10 cat cows moving slowly through each rep.

At 36 weeks baby's kidneys are fully developed, and she is peeing inside you. Aw.

I procrastinated doing maternity pictures for a while because let's face it... wasn't feeling all that photogenic at the moment. But I decided last minute to do them and I'm SO happy I did! Now I have a bunch of them to look back on and show my daughter how happy she made me and how much she was already loved.⠀
.⠀
Thank you @therealjahq 💄 for making me feel beautiful and @jackelynlynamphoto 📸 for capturing my curves! I swear only you could help me pull off that "peaceful mother look" without bursting into laughter 😊.

🎄 How festive is this salad!? 🎄⠀
.⠀
Perfect salad for the holidays. Made this one for a Thanksgiving potluck dinner and it was a hit! Best of all you can make it before hand and let it sit for a while and it doesn't get wilted and soggy like ordinary lettuce salads.⠀
.⠀

There is a laundry list of physical and emotional adjustments required to survive the last 4 weeks of pregnancy. It definitely seems like the longest yard, but if you want to be reminded that you are almost finished take a break from all the nesting and look back at how far you've come and everything you've accomplished thus far!! 😄⠀
.⠀
I deserve a medal for:⠀
▫️Still being able to walk (kind of)⠀
▫️Shaving my legs (once in a while)⠀
▫️Growing an entire person⠀
▫️Permitting my husband to sleep in the bed (even though I'd rather it just be me and my lifeboat-size pillow)⠀
▫️Not eating every Chocolate chip cookie I wanted to eat (just most of them)🍪🍪🍪
.⠀
I would like this medal to arrive in the form of:⠀
▫️Extremely expensive jewelry⠀
▫️One of those heart shaped boxes with chocolates inside⠀
▫️Massages for days⠀
▫️Someone else taking over the actual birthing process, please⠀
▫️12 straight hours of sleep⠀
▫️Hugs 🤗🤗🤗

✨WARNING PLASTIC BABY NOT THE REAL THING✨.
New Born Care class and I still don't know how to change a diaper or swaddle a baby🤦🏻‍♀️... but that's okay, that's what the internet is for👩🏻‍💻.

Things are getting rounder and wider around here!! 😝⠀
.⠀
Struggling to pick things up off the floor and get out of bed without assistance, but still able to do my thing in the gym. Of course listening to my body and taking each day as it comes. Making the most of the moments I'm able to get in a good sweat now because I know those days are hit or miss.⠀
.⠀
I think my brain has officially turned to mush as I face the last few weeks of pregnancy and my mind is consumed with all baby errrrrthang 👶🏻💯⠀
.⠀
I have certainly notice quite a bit more lower abdominal pressure the past week and can officially tell you I know what it feels like to be punched in the vagina from the inside 😵🙈⠀
.⠀
I feel like I've grown a tremendous amount in just a few weeks time and can tell that my little girl is loosing space as she tries to move around in my belly. I can't believe I'm already in the final stretch of pregnancy! Getting more excited each day to finally meet this little person of mine!☺️.

🤰🏻Who else is in the home stretch!?! What changes are you going through right now?

So many things to be thankful for but most of all thankful for this mammoth child in my belly that is squishing my intestines up into my shoulders and throwing it back to the first time we saw our baby and then ugly-cried for a full hour because we never knew how much we could love a tadpole 🤰🏻👶🏻💓 5-weeks-from-becoming-a-mama!

Let's talk about gaining weight during pregnancy🤰🏻. I'll start by saying that if you are obese or anorexic your weight is your own private issue, one for you and your doc. I will also say it is understood that the baby's health is more important than any other consideration, and I'm not talking about the women who starve themselves or eat only trash foods either cause that's no good. ⠀
.⠀
I'm talking about the rest of us, those who read in some book that the weight gain is supposed look something like 25-35lbs for the entire pregnancy and feel bad if it doesn’t match up. I passed that suggested 25lb weight gain mark at about the seventh month, just when I was really getting good and hungry! In fact, I put on so much weight in the first trimester that when the nurse asked me on my first visit what my pre-pregnancy weight was, I lied and added 5 or 10lbs so that she wouldn't know I've already gained another ten pounds . ⠀
.⠀
But coming to the end of this pregnancy I have learned two very important lessons...⠀
.⠀
1⃣️ OUR SELF-ESTEEM ISSUES THAT ARE TIED TO WEIGHT, AND HAVE BEEN SINCE PUBERTY, ARE NEVER MORE INAPPROPRIATE THAN WHEN WE ARE PREGNANT. Pregnancy is a great time to learn the life lesson of surrender. It can be hard for a generation of skinny-worshippers to watch themselves transform in this alarming way. But this body isn’t for your personal enjoyment at the moment, it's a cozy home for your little bean to grow!
.⠀
2⃣️ STAND BACKWARD ON THE SCALE WHEN YOU ARE BEING WEIGHED AT THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE. Some may want to lecture you on body-image issues, but there’s no law that says you need to have that information every visit unless you want it. Trust me, if the doctor notices a problem, he/she will tell you soon enough. Otherwise, what difference does it make to you? You are getting heavier, so what? Get over it.⠀
.⠀
After baby is born, I will workout and clean up my diet until I feel fit again. This is exactly what others have done, and I know I can too. When people tell you to enjoy this time, do exactly that. Have a fabulous time and then sit back and laugh about it, because your sense of humor may be the only thing to get you though these tying times.

Good luck to all my Savage sisters this weekend in the Fitness America World Championships!! 🙌👙✨ Wish I could be there this year with you all doing what we do best... tanning, eating, training and peeing 😂. Can’t wait to watch you on your path to greatness!! #savagegirls #savagenotaverage #bikiniathlete #teamsavagevegas2017 #savagesisters #girlswithmuscle
