Total weight gain: 150 lbs, down 1 lbs from last week, has to be from all the nesting and walking I've been doing... puts me at 25 lbs total. Little One is the size of a watermelon, and this watermelon sure feels ready to POP!
Maternity clothes: Yes- this dress is from ASOS and one of my favorite maternity dresses I own! I love the colors and the print, and think the cut is very flattering for a prego mama, with a low back too.
Stretch marks? Thankfully, no! I ran out of my Palmer's this morning- ahhh!! So I added a bit of extra lotion to that last squirt of Palmer's to stretch it out. Feeling incredibly lucky!
Sleep: It has gotten better. I think I've been so tuckered out from nesting, I zonk out right away, but I have been having spells in the middle of the night where I lay awake for a bit, but then I fall into a really deep sleep. Once my alarm is going off, I'm having crazy dreams that I don't want to wake up from- I want to know what's going to happen in them!! haha
Best moment this week: Getting to go on a movie date with my husband on Friday night was so nice. We know it might be our very last one for awhile. I also went for a dog walk with my best friend Deena on Sunday. The weather was so beautiful- high 60's and sunny. It was amazing to be outside in the sunshine. When I got home, Adam and I made a Home Depot run, and he got so much done in the yard (I only supervised, haha). He laid down all our mulch, planted flowers, and seeded the entire yard, so Landon will have lots of plushy grass to lay on this summer. Inside, I continued the nesting by doing laundry, cleaning out the basement, cleaning out the garage, and organizing a bunch of closets and cupboards and drawers. The house is even more ready for Landon!
Movement: Yes- my poor boy has to be so squished in there. He feels HUGE, but I swear my belly can't stretch anymore, so he's got to be so tight in there. I still relish every wiggle and roll though. I love having him in there.
|39 weeks- still working out |
(though walking is pretty low-intensity, it still feels great to move around as much as possible!)
Miss anything? Drinking. Warm weather makes me want to sit outside and sip on a nice, cold adult beverage. Soon enough though! :)
Food cravings: Breakfast sandwiches- I had to stop this morning and get the bacon, egg, and gouda sandwich from Starbucks. I love that one! Bananas and smoothies- I just love fruit in general this whole pregnancy, and yesterday I polished off an entire king size Pay Day bar- YUMMO!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Still seafood.
Gender: Boy <3
Labor signs: Lots more cramping and lightning crotch. OUCH!! He's dropped for sure- the doctor confirmed it. She also confirmed I'm effaced, and 1-2 centimeters dilated, so she said to be ready at anytime. Also, TMI, but there's been uhh...mucus plug loss and changes in discharge. My back has also been hurting, but I don't know if that's labor signs or just soreness from all of the nesting. Soon enough the real thing will happen- eek!!!!
Symptoms: Heartburn, frequent urination, abdominal aches and pains, cramping, Braxton Hicks, backache, lightning crotch, and shortness of breath (at night), lactation, increased thirst, nesting
Belly button in or out? Still completely popped out- so weird.
Wedding rings on or off? Still on! :)
Happy or moody most of the time: Very happy. I have to say, the thought of labor is getting a little daunting, but I know he has to come out- there's no turning back now! So I think all the nesting and finishing up work has been a great way to feel productive and keep my mind off getting freaked out about labor. And I know at the end, I'll get to hold this Little Man. Can't believe that it's been 39 weeks. SO CLOSE!!! Love you, baby boy. Can't wait to introduce you to the world. <3 xoxo
