Hey y'all! Remember me?? Still preggers.
I haven't had any motivation to blog in the last week...I blame it on Spring Break! We had such an awesome break together...we got to go home-home for a few days and spend some QT with family and friends. It was perfect! I'm so glad we got to do that one last time pre-bambino.
I've got a few things I need to post...mostly baby-related, so if you're not into that sorta thing...well, you've reached the wrong blog at this time ;)
Aaaaannnnyway...how about a bump-date??
Check out that belly-button! Haha, I feel like it will never recover from being forced so far out there!
|by the time my photog gets home, i'm in my pj's...whoops.|
iphone pics it is this week! ;-)
How far along: 37 weeks -- FULL term!
Size of baby: Baby girl is the size of a watermelon! She feels like it, too ;) She's anywhere from 19-22 inches long and around 6-7 lbs.
Total weight gain: +28 lbs. I'll be glad when I stop seeing the scale climb! But our goal was 30 lbs., so I guess that's good...
Movement: Yes...baby feets are in my ribs pretty often! Reminds me to sit up straight. And that I can't wait to kiss those tiny toes.
Sleep: Sleep is still pretty good. I get up 3-4 times to pee, but I can usually get right back to sleep. Rolling over sure does require a lot of effort.
What I miss: Being comfortable.
Cravings: I'll give you one guess....
(If you said milk & cereal, you'd be correct.)
Symptoms: Sporadic contractions, lower back pain, pelvic pressure, constant peeing, and my feet are starting to swell by day's end...ahh, pregnancy. It truly is a beautiful thing. And no, I'm not being sarcastic...I've loved it.
Maternity clothes: Pretty much all maternity. I have a few non-maternity tops that still work, but I don't even mess with the belly band anymore. Too tight!
Best moments this week:
--Just knowing we've MADE IT! Jaqs can come any time she pleases now.
--Had our appointment yesterday...dilated to a 2 & 50% effaced. Dr. F said she's started to make her descent, so that explains the pressure, of course!
--Rob & I have been working on getting the last of our "baby stuff" ready. We finally got the travel system...yippee!
--I've yet to dream about what Jaqs looks like, but Rob, who NEVER remembers his dreams, had one the other night. He said she was "perfect & so pretty." What a sweet daddy he is. He's already smitten with this little princess.
--I'm getting SO ANXIOUS to meet this girl! She is so, so loved already, and she has lots of people waiting to get "the call." I'm over-the-moon excited!
We still have some things to get done before Jaqs gets here...like pack our bags!! I'm usually so on-top of things like that, but this is one thing I've put off, and I'm not sure why. Any advice on what to pack or what not to pack?? Any input would be GREATLY appreciated!
Hope you're having a fantastic week! :)
