Yes, I am wearing brown shoes with black pants. Whatofit?
How far along? Almost 38 weeks! FULL TERM BABY!
Total weight gain/loss: Still a healthy amount!
How big is baby? 19 1/2 inches long and 6 lbs/15oz according to last weeks ultrasound. Big boy!
Maternity clothes? Always and forever. I might never take them off.
Stretch Marks? Yes. Tiger stripes FTW
Best moment this week? Last Monday's ultrasound! He's getting too big to make out features but the fact that I could see him moving around and his little heart beat just makes me melt. Seeing him just solidifies the fact that he's really in there and will soon be on the outside!
Movement? He flips and flops and kicks me in the ribs and I feel bruised most of the time.
Food Cravings? None really. Except when I go to Costco and the bakery is giving out free samples of cake and fresh baked bread. Then I end up buying forty bucks worth of junk that I didn't need but it tastes so good and you shouldn't give samples to pregnant people.
What I miss: Do we really need to go over this again? I miss being a normal human who can do things on her own. I've now gotten to the point where I drop something and debate for a few minutes on how badly I need it because I CAN'T pick it up. My house is a wreck because of it. Bodie is no help, he doesn't have thumbs.
What I am looking forward to: The birth of my cousins baby!! She'll be induced tomorrow morning and I can't wait to add another baby boy to the family. :)
Nausea/Vomiting?: No but there's this new thing I've come accustomed to called heartburn. I've never had it before but apparently, when a 7 pound baby is squishing your guts up into your ribs, you can't eat anything without it burning for hours.
Labor signs? Lots of Braxton Hicks lately and definite pressure on my groin but that's about it. Fingers crossed one of these times it will be the real thing and we'll be able to get to the hospital.
Gender? Baby boy!
Belly Button in or out? Very very flat.
Wedding rings on or off? Off. :(
Sleep? Still sleeping okay with the exception of the normal tossing and turning. I've considered sleeping in the armchair so that I don't have all that pressure on my hips but dangit, my bed is comfy!
Weekly Wisdom: Try not to smack the people who continually ask you why you're still at work. Or why you're up and around so much. Or why you're not taking it easy. Or when's the baby coming. I'm not disabled, I'm pregnant and as far as I know, this baby will come out when he's done baking.
BOOM. Baby bump. In your face.
