38 weeks !!!

I realize this has kind of morphed into a blog all about baby... but let's be real here... we are playing the baby waiting game and there isn't a whole lot else going on to talk about... so deal with it.

Sorry bout my sweater covering that bump.
What Fruit are you?
A leek.

Due date:  
January 28th... less than two weeks!

How far along:  
38 weeks one day.

Next appointment:  
Next Thursday.

Gender:  
It's a girl!
Total weight gain/loss:  
Up 18 total.

Swelling: 
Some.. if I'm on my feet all day.  My ring was pretty stuck on my finger the other day.  But I'm determined to make it last until baby gets here!

Maternity clothes:  
All the way.

Belly button:  
In.

Sleep:
Horrendous.  Between peeing 354698643 times a night and having to practically be awake to turn over, I'm not getting very good sleep these days.  I guess my body is preparing for once little bit is here. ;)

Food cravings:  
Had a weird craving for pigs in a blanket the other day.  Haven't had those since I was like 10 maybe... so I have no idea where THAT one came from.  (For the record, I didn't follow through on my craving.)
Symptoms:  
Rough sleep. Back pain.  My feet have been super sore.  Some cramping. Really just any aching that can possibly be happening on my body.. is.

Movement:  
All the time.  Like I've said before, she's out of room, so I feel every little roll.

Labor signs: 
Just some cramping.  I may have had my first contraction the other day.  But since I've never done this before I am not entirely sure what to be looking for.  We are 30 to 40% effaced and 1 cm dilated as of Monday.

What I miss:  
The way my body used to handle long days.. as in it could.  Now it can't.  Haha.

What I'm loving:  
That she could be here any day!!  Baby watch is more fun than baby growing. :)
What I'm looking forward to:  
Friday!  Warrant board results come out... say a prayer the husband man is picked up please and thank you.

Best moment this week: 
Besides the appointment on Monday... I'd say having lunch today with old co-workers and having them repeatedly tell me that I look great and that the weight I am carrying is ALL baby.  Seriously made my day. :)


always,

  1. Yea for almost being done!!!!! I remember those last couple of weeks well :) I never knew what to look for with labor seeing as my son came early and my water broke, then I was induced with the 2nd (even though labor started on its own, I didn't realize it) It's amazing how it's different for everyone.
    Saying a prayer for your hubby! Sooo exciting!!!!!
