Anna’s Hump Date Bump Update powered by Stamford Hospital
Monday, October 8th, 2018
I am 34 weeks pregnant this week. It’s a super joyous time despite the fact that I can no longer bend over or see my feet. I hope my shoes match. I get a lot of the same questions now that I’m pregnant and I thought I’d answer them. I’m 38-years-old. I know, it’s considered “older” but in my mind, I’m still a child and can’t believe they’ll let me take another newborn home. My daughter Hayden is nine-years-old and my children will be almost ten years apart. Yes, she’s very excited about being a big sister. This is actually a dream come true for her. She’s always wanted a sibling and having a little sister is icing on the cake. She kisses my belly every night and tells Baby Zap about all the things she’s going to teach her. I’m certain this new baby will know the back story to every Disney princess by the time she’s two-years-old. It wasn’t easy for me to get pregnant which is part of the reason why there’s such a big age gap. I had spoken to my amazing doctor about getting help, but ultimately (after suffering a miscarriage last year) we were able to get pregnant on our own. It was a true blessing. It hasn’t been an easy pregnancy, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes very early on (I had it with Hayden too) and my placenta was very low but Stamford Hospital’s doctors are pros and walked me through what to do every step of the way. I have a team of pros! More next week, but for now wish me luck with my snoring. Why do pregnant women snore so loudly? My husband hasn’t slept in weeks.
