Due Date: July 23, 2016
How Far Along: 38 weeks (39 weeks on Saturday)
Next Appointment: July 19th
Total Weight Gain/Loss: + 35lbs or so….I have an ice cream sandwich problem right now. And I’m not ashamed.
Exercise: Any movement feels like exercise at this point lol
Stretch Marks: No
Swelling: Yes- comes and goes. Usually at the end of the day, particularly when it’s hot.
Maternity Clothes: Yes but not for long! I’m so over it. I want my old wardrobe back!!
Belly Button: Popped.
Sleep: Waking up at least once every night to pee- sometimes 2-3 times. And getting out of bed right now is the WORST.
Food Cravings: Ice cream sandwiches
Food Aversions: Nada
Symptoms: All the pain and discomfort.
Movement: Still nice and active in there.
Labor Signs: Braxton hicks, 2cm dilated, 50% effaced. Just waiting for real contractions to begin at this point.
What I Miss: My non-maternity wardrobe. And being comfortable.
What I’m Loving: Getting closer to her due date!
What I’m Looking Forward To: See above. I am SO excited to meet her and can’t believe how close it is now 🙂
Best Moment This Week: Always love hearing her heartbeat on the doppler at my doctor’s appointments. Since I’m so close to my due date I’ve been having weekly appointments, so I get to hear it often!
Words of Wisdom: Listen to your body- ask for help- rest when you can and don’t feel guilty! That’s been the theme for me recently. If I want to nap and eat an ice cream sandwich, that’s just what I’m gonna do 🙂 Because life’s about to get a whole lot crazier, very soon!
