How far along: 37 weeks! I am no longer considered “pre-term” and she is free to come whenever she wants. Come on baby girl!
Baby is the size of a: A honeydew melon. She is weighing over 6lbs and around 19in long!
Weight gain: My original appt on Monday was canceled due to the snow storm, so I went in Friday at 36+5, and was shocked to see I’ve only gained a total of 2 pounds since my last appointment almost 5 weeks ago! I am up a total of 25 pounds!
Maternity clothes: Honestly, not really. I’ve been living in Shae’s clothes most of the time. At this point, I just want to be comfortable.
Sleep: I have been sleeping great and also still napping a few times a week while Everlee naps.
Gender: A sweet baby girl!
Movement: Oh yes! Mostly just feeling her move, and not so much kicking. She’s getting so big in there it’s hard to do much.
Best moment this week: Having Shae home with us most of the week! He only had to work two days this week. Such a nice surprise and super helpful to me at this point in time.
Looking forward to: Meeting our baby girl! It’s all I dream and think about!
Food cravings: Ice, iced coffee, sunflower seeds, CUPCAKES. You guys, one day I ate THREE freaking cupcakes in a day. They are so good, it’s ridiculous.
Anything make you sick or queasy: Not really, but I was feeling nauseous yesterday morning. Even after eating a big breakfast.
Labor signs: I wouldn’t really consider it labor signs, but I was having Braxton Hicks that were going into my back yesterday and it was really crampy and uncomfortable and I have also had a few painful contractions!
What I miss: Having energy and I could go for a yummy cocktail!
Symptoms: Nothing too crazy. Rib pain, lower back pain, Braxton Hicks, exhausted. The usual!
Belly button in or out: Still in, but about to be flat!
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Mood: I am… impatient. I am ready for her to get out!
