It’s time to do something different than usual and to share some of my recent thoughts, since I literally haven’t had the energy to write a decent blog post. I’m at the end of my pregnancy and I’m really exhausted, which makes it pretty hard to create content for my blog. I mean, I have so many ideas to work with, but I can barely concentrate. I don’t know, it’s hard to explain. Anyway, sharing my thoughts is a great way to clear my mind for a second and to get a few things off my chest, so grab a cup of tea and enjoy! I have a lot to talk about.

Guys, I just lost my mucus plug, which might be an early sign that I’m going into labor soon! (The mucus plug forms some kind of “barrier” in the cervix to stop bacteria from entering the uterus during pregnancy. Check out this link if you want to read more about it.)
I’m really, really nervous right now! I’ve already lost a lot of vaginal discharge, but I haven’t seen anything like this before. It was disgusting, even though it’s natural. The substance was really white and thick. It almost looked like a huge string of snot. I don’t know, it was pretty gross.

It’s been 24 hours since I lost my mucus plug and I haven’t noticed anything “weird” yet. Everything seems pretty normal, actually. I’ve had a few mild contractions today, but they weren’t that painful, so I guess I still have some time left to mentally prepare myself. I feel very uncomfortable, though. It feels like I’m having my period and I also have a lot of pain in my lower back, which is pretty annoying.

Gosh, I felt horrible this morning! I woke up with a lot contractions and heavy cramps, which made it extremely difficult to sit. I wasn’t even able to eat! It was terrible! I tried to do some stretching exercises, but that only made it worse, so I decided to take a hot shower and, gosh, I’m really glad I did! The pain slowly faded away after a few minutes and my body was finally able to relax!
Things are getting really, really intense. I’ve never been so exhausted in my life before! Carrying a child is heavier than I thought and I didn’t expect it to be so hard, especially when I have to do something that includes a lot of walking. I mean, I can barely finish my chores without taking a break and it feels like every single thing requires a ton of energy. I also want to visit so many places, but I can’t even make it to the shop right next to my door! It’s really frustrating!

I just had an appointment with the gynecologist and it doesn’t seem like the baby will be coming any time soon. I’m actually pretty disappointed. I’m only 1 centimeter dilated and she isn’t fully “dropped” yet either, so it might take a little longer than expected. I just wish I could meet her already.
I’m going through a lot of different emotions. Sadness, guilt, anger. I don’t know why I feel so upset, but I have to do something about it before it gets worse. I think I’m going to meditate for about half an hour. I’m sure this will help me out a lot!

I woke up pretty early this morning, so I decided to make myself useful and to create some content for my blog. It felt really good to focus on something else for a change. I also came up with a bunch of new blog post ideas and I spent some time on social media as well, which is amazing! My blog has grown a lot in the past month and I’m really, really grateful for all the love and support. I mean, I’ve never been so proud in my life before! Thank you so much!
I also want to talk about Twitter for a second. I’ve never been a huge fan of Twitter, simply because it wasn’t really important for my blog. That’s what I thought, at least. I recently decided to become more active on social media to increase my traffic and I actually met some really supportive people! Twitter is a pretty good way to keep your blog going. I mean, it definitely gave my blog an amazing boost!

I’m officially over 9 months pregnant and our little girl still doesn’t want to come out yet. It’s unbelievable! I’ve tried to do some exercises to speed things up, but it seems like I’ll just have to wait and see. It feels really good to do some exercises, though. It’s a great way to relieve stress and to prepare my muscles for labor.

The weather is so beautiful today, which makes me massively happy! Jeremy and I just went for a walk, so I took the opportunity to take some photographs for my blog as well. It was pretty cold outside, but it didn’t really bothered me. I was too busy enjoying our walk! It felt good to get some fresh air. I spent a lot of time in the couch lately and I haven’t been out for a while, so I’m glad I took a little break to clear my head! Anyway, it’s time to enjoy some hot chocolate milk and get back to work! My blog posts aren’t going to write themselves!
