How Far Along? 38 Weeks
Total Weight Gain? 40 pounds according to my appointment today. That’s two pounds DOWN from last week? So confusing. I don’t even know how that happens. haha.
Stretch Marks? a few.
Sleep: Good at the moment. I am just at that ALWAYS tired point so I don’t think there is ever going to be getting enough of it!
Best Moment this week: Getting some time with Jonathan this past weekend after not having much time together lately.
Miss Anything? Being able to sit or sleep comfortably. Being able to breath without sounding like I’m climbing Mt. Everest. Being able to bend over and tie my shoes or put on my boots. Having energy so that I can play with my kids.
Exercise: I have decided until the baby is born to give myself some time off to just unpack, decorate, and get ready for baby. I’ve also been taking daily naps. Which is super NOT like me. haha. Only two weeks left now…so I guess it’s good to have some “me” time before that goes out the window for a little while.
Movement: The baby isn’t moving a ton. But I am still feeling most of it during the night hours. I think space is maxed out in there.
Food cravings: Raspberry lemonade, japanese food, ice cream with an icee, COKE! Haha.
Anything making you sick or queasy? Not currently. And I think the baby has dropped because my acid reflux has gotten SO MUCH BETTER :)
Labor Signs: At the doctor today I was 3 cm and effaced. The baby is really low. This is the furthest along I have been so far in pregnancy in terms of dilation at this stage. But it probably won’t mean anything :)
I am having lots of Braxton Hicks.
Symptoms: Heartburn/acid reflux. Hip pain. Back pain. HOT FLASHES. haha. Exhaustion. Feeling HUGE and not fitting into hardly any clothes at all. We’ve hit the lovely part :)
Belly button in or out: Halfway out.
Wedding rings on or off? Still on.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Moody
Looking forward to: The baby’s arrival :)
