|i think what i have is more than a bump now ;)|
How far along: 36 weeks! Almost full-term!
Size of baby: These baby websites are all so different...one says coconut (which seems way too small), one says a crenshaw melon....um, what? And another says watermelon. I think I'll go with watermelon! ;) She's somewhere around 6 lbs and 18-21 inches long.
Total weight gain: +25 lbs (supposedly anything I gain now is baby...ha)
Movement: She's still kicking away and working those little legs and arms constantly. Dr. F said she was head-butting him when he was checking me today! Probably to say, "get out of here, I'm comfy!"
Sleep: Sleep is probably as good as can be expected! I feel rested during the day, so that's what is important.
What I miss: My wardrobe...it will all be new to me when I'm done being preggers! Of course, if it fits ;) I may still need to do some shopping!
Cravings: Still the same...milk & cereal! On Sunday I bought half a gallon of milk...it was gone by Monday evening. Whoops.
Symptoms: Sporadic BH contractions...I think I'm feeling some contractions in my lower back as well. Peeing constantly, pelvic pressure, foot cramps, etc. All normal things...no complaining here!
Maternity clothes: Both, but I'm getting more limited with each day. So if you see me, just pretend like I wasn't wearing the same outfit a few days ago, k? Gracias.
Best moments this week:
--Weekly doctor appointments started today! Yippee! We have a little progress...dilated to a 1.5. I realize that's not much, but to me, any progress is good progress!
--Last night Rob was in the bedroom, and I was in the living room...the remote was on the other couch, and it just didn't seem worth it to roll off the couch for it. So I did what any almost-9-months-preggo girl would do and yelled for my darling husband. He came running in the living room thinking my water must have broke. Needless to say, he was a little disappointed. Haha, sorry for the false alarm, honey. Good story, though.
--Non-baby related, but it's SPRING BREAK!! Rob and I are definitely enjoying it! Just the right amount of house-work and relaxation over here.
