Technically, my due date is still twelve days away (but who’s counting). But, I have had contractions on and off for a few weeks now. He finally flipped head down, AND has dropped quite a bit. The nursery is 99% ready, co-sleeper is put together, clothes/diapers/etc are all organized and ready to go.
Just need a baby.
How far along? Thirty-eight weeks and some change
Are you showing? Absolutely.
Gender: Baby BOY #2! 🙂
Total weight gain: Just over 20 pounds.
Maternity clothes: Leggings. All day erryday. Nine months pregnant in the summer was easy because summer dresses. However, winter means if I don’t feel like doing the yoga-pilates-hybrid that shaving my legs requires, it’s perfectly okay.
Stretch marks: A few little ones up near my ribs from my belly dropping.
Sleeping: Rough. I’m always exhausted but never sleep well. He’s soooo low. And I’ve had a lot of pelvic pain and “false” contractions the last few weeks.
Food Cravings: Sushi.
Anything making you sick or queasy? Everything, if I get too full.
Miss Anything? Sleep and wine. And sushi. And wine.
Movement: Um, yes. He tries to stretch out as though he has enough room to do so. He doesn’t.
Labor signs: Braxton Hicks. Pelvic pressure. Etc. But, for weeks. So, I’ll believe it when it happens.
Symptoms: Uncomfortable and tired. But overall, I feel okay!
Belly Button in or out: OUT.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody: All of the above.
Best moments this week: Asher wiggling like crazy when Aiden talks to my belly. Melts a momma’s heart!
Looking forward to: My last days with my Bubba before he’s no longer the baby!
