How far along? 37 weeks
Due Date: October 23rd 2013
Baby is the size of a: The Bump weighs 4.1 pounds as of October 13th…we have another growth scan on Friday! Can’t wait for the Bumpdate!
Total weight gain: A hearty 43 pounds as of yesterday…crap.
Maternity clothes? Pretty much everything now. Motherhood top, and Gap Long & Lean maternity jeans above.
Stretch marks? Despite the 43 pounds…no stretchmarks on the belly!
Sleep: Last night sucked, Got up and slept on the sofa until 11 this morning! Oopies!
Movement: The Bump is very active. All.the.time.
Gender: The Bump is a girl!
Names? We’ve chosen Hadley as her first name…but are keeping her middle name a secret for now!
Best moment this week: Making the appointment for Moxibustion. This little girl needs to turn!
Miss Anything: Lots of things at this point. The ability to turn, bend over, put on my socks…have a beer or a glass of wine after a long and stressful day…but this is so worth it.
Food cravings: Chocolate cookies…so many in fact that I feel like the cookie monster!!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just inversions…
Labor Signs: As of last Tuesday I was dilated to 2cms, and almost 100% effaced. Have a few contractions here and there, but nothing major.
Symptoms: I am months pregnant…everything is a symptom…
Wedding rings on or off? On…still on. But I have to take them off at night to sleep.
Belly Button in or out? Still an innie! Unbelieveable.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy, slightly anxious…both the good and bad anxious. And pretty emotional, a little sensitive and exhausted.
Looking forward to: the end.
Baby purchases: Just waiting on the last item we bought, the changing pad, to arrive and then do some artsy stuff for the walls and then the nursery is 99.9% complete!
In just a few short weeks my arms and my heart will be full of beautiful baby…instead of my belly. In a few short weeks our lives will change forever, and we will get to meet our daughter…
