35weekspregnant

If I had to describe this week in one word it would be... ouch. Between having contractions for over an hour one night, and little man wedging his foot into my rib cage, it's been a pretty fun week. The whole rib pain was inevitable though. I had it with Anya, I had it with Olivia, what would make me think this one would be different?? I just keep telling myself that I only have a few weeks left and then I get to meet this little guy.

Speaking of Liam... I am not sure if it's just hormones or what, but I am seriously considering changing his name. My poor daughter, Olivia, will be so messed up... she walks around the house lifting up her shirt and pointing at her belly saying "Liam." Still have a little bit to decide what to call the little guy.

Finally ordered my birth kit things. I think the box should be here sometime this week. I also have a midwife appointment this Wednesday, and she will check my iron levels again. Praying everything is looking good! That night of contractions had me so worried {a little excited too} that he was on his way. I *could* technically be 37 weeks! Better get to the store and stock up on Apple juice and yogurt for the birth :)

What were some food and drink essentials for you during labor?!?
