Just 14 more days… give or take… then we can hold our sweet boy.
And he can stop kicking my insides, making me act like a crazy person, putting so much pressure on my hips that I have to pause when walking 2 freaking steps, and keeping me from sleeping more than 2 hours at a time since I have to wake up to pee. I would much rather wake up to a sweet hungry newborn instead 🙂
I give you the 38 Week Stats
How far along? 38 weeks (well tomorrow technically but I’m attempting to be efficient)
Total weight gain/loss: Ugh. Do we have to talk about that. I’m actually at 173lbs. cringe Good thing it’s all for baby boy! Can’t wait to get back on the stairclimber/treadmill and in the weight room!
Maternity clothes? Of course! Who can be mad at having roomy, comfy, stretchy waistbands?
Stretch Marks? Still holding out. Thank you Mama for my awesome genes! I’m feeling extra lucky about this one!
Sleep: HA. the all illusive sleep. Poor Cash is having trouble so it’s making things extra “fun” at night for us. But we’ll get through it. He seems to better in bed with me. Now if only I didn’t have to get up every couple of hours cause I have to pee or I’m just super uncomfortable.
Best Moment this week: We pulled off a surprise party for my Amazing Mother in Law on Saturday. I’m hoping to share those details (along with our Easter) very soon. Also it seems as though little Lucas has dropped quite a bit between yesterday/today. I can actually get a full breath this morning! Heck yes!
Miss Anything? I would love a glass of wine. And I am super excited for my sub sandwich that I know I’ll get once this kid pops out!
Movement: He’s still moving like crazy! Thank goodness he’s lower. So instead of my lungs & ribs he’s now kicking my stomach and pushing my pubic bone. Oh the joys.
Food Cravings: I always want sweets. It’s strange for me. Can someone please bring over some gourmet cupcakes and croissant donuts??
Anything making you queasy or sick: Pretty much every time I eat I get nauseous. Also it’s much warmer this week so I’m still feeling like I’m forcing food.
Gender Prediction: All Boy on this one.
Labor Signs: A bit more pressure. I’m dilated to a 2 (as of Wednesday). I’ve really started feeling crampy and like I’m on my period today so that’s new.
Belly Button in or out? Out there and I’m starting to worry it won’t go back in 😉
Wedding rings on or off? I’m keeping them off most of the time just to be safe. My hands are swelling more in the heat and I don’t want to risk them getting stuck at this point.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Pretty darn moody! Sorry hun! I wish I could control it… We’re almost there!
Weekly Wisdom: Start napping. Now is the time to preserve your energy. Especially if you have a toddler like me. I’m taking full advantage of every single time he sleeps. Thank goodness my hubby works from home! He’s been amazing lately!
Looking Forward to: meeting our little one! I’m still very nervous for it to actually happen but I’m certainly excited!
I’ll leave you with this smiley kid!!!
Horay for Friday… We are headed outside to run in the grass & play with bubbles!
Have a wonderful day!
Bye for Now
