How far along: 38 weeks! Only 2 weeks until my due date!!
Baby is the size of a: A spaghetti squash.
Weight gain: 27lbs total.
Maternity clothes: Yes. Also husbands clothes and no underwear because they are so uncomfortable at this point.
Sleep: I have been zonked out and asleep pretty early this last week and also I’ve been waking up at 7 on my own, which has been nice! I am thankful I’ve been able to take full advantage of soaking in sleep these last few weeks.
Movement: I swear I feel everything. Even the tiniest little twitch. She is so big in there that slight movements feel huge!
Best moment this week: Having one last weekend to ourselves before baby girl gets here. Shae and I spent the entire day yesterday “dating” and it was just the recharge we needed before long days, nights and exhaustion hits us full force in the coming days or weeks!
Looking forward to: Picking up my baby girl later today!!! I can’t wait to squeeze her and smother her in kisses. I’ve missed her terribly.
Food cravings: I specifically remember saying to Shae at one point, “I have an overwhelming craving for donuts and I want to cry because we have none.” It was awful especially because it was so late at night and couldn’t go get any. Also, still craving ice. Besides that, I’ve been on a fruit loop kick! Sour candy always sounds good.
Anything make you sick or queasy: Nope!
Labor signs: A few painful contractions here and there. Not much else unfortunately.
What I miss: Not feeling like Shamu the whale.
Symptoms: So. Damn. Tired. Braxton Hicks, my vision has tanked significantly, itchy feet, out of breath!
Belly button in or out: Still in, but about to be flat!
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Mood: Happy and excited! I just can’t wait to meet this baby! I’m getting really impatient over here.
