(Pic coming soon)
How Far Along? 37 Weeks!! (and 4 days-today) Just 3 weeks left!
Symptoms: I’m tired, so so tired. Low on patience. Cramping a lot! and just don’t want to be bothered with anything (which is why my house looks like a tornado ran through :() I just can’t get comfortable in any position anymore.
Total Weight Gain: 30 lbs!!! Let’s see if we can hit 35 before lil man pops out.
Maternity Clothes: A lot of my maternity tees are now crop tops! haha My thighs have grown so I can no longer fit my white skinny maternity jeans. And my gonzo boobs are probably in need of another cup size up (we’re already at a g folks). I’m going to look like a freakin porn star when the belly goes down and my milk comes in.
Stretch Marks: Well, I’ve lost the war. I have a patch on each side of my belly. Once baby is out I’ll assess the real damage.
Sleep: It’s an all day event. I’m a nap-a-holic. Nighttime is annoying because I have restless legs now, and I hate that heartburn kicks up a thousand notches once I get into bed, no matter how much zantac, mylanta and tums I’ve taken. And I’m ALWAYS TIRED. Always.
Food Cravings: mango flavored anything, peanut butter jelly and dorito sandwiches. (I used to LIVE on those sandwiches)
Best Moment This Week: John and I had a lovely date night! Dinner and the 3d Avengers movie. It’s nice getting some QT in with him since he’s working doubles all the time these days.
Movement: He’s moving less than before but much stronger than before too! Sometimes I don’t feel him at all and I get nervous and have to sit for an hour and do the kick count thing the doctor told me to. He always comes through and starts to give some stretches.
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks, lots of pressure and lots of cramping and back pain. I’m starting to get nervous about labor.
Belly Button In Or Out? Out, unless Embry goes to one side of my body in which case the bellybutton goes back in.
What I Miss: I miss sleeping through the night, a life without heartburn, stable emotions, an unstriped belly, feeling like myself, energy, the ability to stay awake during the day, motivation.
What I Am Looking Forward To: Meeting Embers and loving him up. Meeting the pediatrician on Tuesday.
Milestones: FULL TERM BABY!! Whoop whooop!
Weekly Wisdom: Nap. Nap. Nap. and do not feel guilty.
Thoughts: I can’t wait to meet my little man!! I’m waiting for nesting to truly kick in….any day now… I feel like my lil guy is going to stay put until his due date passes…but I kinda wish I’d start labor right now! It’s odd having absolutely ZERO motivation for anything. I didn’t even want to get out of bed for my doctor appointments. Bleh.
Any advice for me at this stage in pregnancy?
