How far along? 39 weeks, 4 days.
Total weight gain/loss? 163 +29 – 30 lbs. I am happy that I didn’t go too far over my hoped for weight goal. For my BMI the goal for weight gain is 25-35 pounds. I was hoping for closer to 25 but I definitely didn’t want to go over 35. So I feel right in middle and I am happy with that. I can see I have gained in my lower half and bit in my upper arms. I feel like I will be able to bounce back from that fairly quickly. I am super curious to see how much of this gain is from baby and pregnancy “stuff”.
Maternity clothes? Yes, and mixed in pre-pregnancy clothes right until the end.
Stretch marks? Nope. I actually had a stretch mark free pregnancy – sweet.
Sleep? Sleep has been semi induced by benadryl this week. i wake a few times to pee and take more medication. All in all I wake up feeling pretty rested. Saturday night was my first solid insomnia night. I was up until 4:30 a.m. wide awake. I ate two bowls of cereal during the night and got up to pee about 5 times. Finally I fell asleep around 5 a.m. and got up at 10 a.m. Needless to day a nap happened on Sunday.
Best moment this week? We bought a new car. A total surprise as I thought that was happening next year but I am very happy about it. Our ultimate “best moment” will be meeting our baby girl!!! I really can’t believe the time is finally here xox
Miss anything? My normal body.
Movement? Still moving around so much. It’s painful now. Her little feet are all up in my right ribs and it’s not so cute anymore haha. She hasn’t seemed to drop but I am feeling a lot more happening in my cervix area as well. Interesting to say the least! lol
Food cravings? Nope. Just a basic lack of interest in food now. I’ll eat but I don’t want to cook it and don’t really actually want to eat it. Trying to stick to light, easily digested foods now that I’m so close to labor.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Symptoms? Numbness in my right hand, heartburn, constant peeing, BH, terrible itchy rash from hell.
Labor Signs? Nope. No cramps. I did lose a tiny bit of what I can only guess would be my mucus plug on Saturday morning 🙂
Belly Button in or out? It’s stretched out flat. Chris is still waiting for the “pop”. It’s not going to pop hahaha.
Wedding rings on or off? Off. They are clean and ready for when I can wear them again.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy. Nervous. Excited.
Looking forward to? Meeting our baby girl!!! xox
