How Far Along: 38 weeks, 2 weeks to go! It's almost D-Day!
Size of baby: Baby S is 19-21 inches long, the size of a leek/watermelon (yikes), and weighs around 6.5 pounds.
Weight Gain/Loss: I'm at 167 now. Seems the weight gain has slowed down, like the books have promised.
Body Changes: Nothing new this week.
Gender: It's a GIRL!
Movement: She rolls a lot, making my stomach look weird! And lots of hiccups, usually in the middle of the night. It's fun, but getting kind of uncomfortable.
Sleep: If I didn't have a dumb cat, I'd probably sleep a little better. Last night I was awake for 2 hours in the middle of the night. The night before, I slept fitfully because of weird dreams. I hope tonight I get a good nights sleep!
What I'm looking forward to: Sleeping on my back...
Cravings: Chocolate! I made chocolate chocolate chip muffins on Monday and today, I'm making banana bread with chocolate chips. Yum.
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, mild cramping, an achy belly, a numb rib that hurts sometimes, some sciatic nerve pain... my body is falling apart!
Best Moment This Week: I had another OB appointment this morning. From now on, I have one every week until 41 weeks. I hope the baby comes before then haha. It was an awesome appointment and the midwife was really cool. I hope she delivers our baby!
We're nearing D-Day with every step. I'm so excited to see what she looks like and how she acts, but terrified to start this new journey. I feel prepared and so unprepared at the same time. But that's to be expected. :)
