How Far Along? 38 Weeks!! 2 weeks to go! I can’t wait to meet my little man.
Symptoms: Alternating for the past couple days between extreme lethargy and bursts of energy (nesting?) I am hungry all the time, heartburning all the time 🙁
Total Weight Gain: 30 lbs!!!
Maternity Clothes: All day
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.
Food Cravings: mango flavored anything, peanut butter jelly and dorito sandwiches. (I used to LIVE on those sandwiches) (nothing’s changed here)
Best Moment This Week: Getting the crib set up and finishing part of Baby H’s wall art.
Movement: He’s settling down. I want him to drop so I can feel hopeful of impending labor….and not get heartburn anymore 🙂
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks, lots of pressure and lots of cramping and back pain. The pain is getting a bit stronger too.
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.
What I Am Looking Forward To: Meeting Embry! Meeting the pediatrician on Tuesday and my doc appt on Wednesday. Also John and I are having another date night this week. YAY!
Milestones: Frankly, being 2 weeks out from the due date is a milestone to me. Also getting a bit of energy back and pseudo-nesting
Weekly Wisdom: Don’t feel guilty if everything isn’t perfect for the arrival of your little one. A place to sleep, some diapers, boobs and clothes is all that’s really needed. Everything else is bonus. 🙂
Thoughts: …..any day now Embry…..any day now….
Any advice for me at this stage in pregnancy?
