Size: a squash
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +30
Maternity Clothes: Maternity pants, regular tops and maternity tops.
Stretch Marks: None… Lathering up with lotion.
Movement: All the time. I still feel her kicks but now it’s more of big movements. It’s fun trying to guess which body part we’re seeing!
Sleep: Still not great. My hands fall asleep every night and I’ve been having pain in m right arm, probably because she’s on a nerve. I’ve moved to the couch in D’s office and that has been helping a bit. As much as it sucks, I think of it as preparing us for the sleepless nights when she is here.
Cravings: Iced Coffee (I either get decaf or a small coffee).
Symptoms: I’m nauseous again, especially in the morning. Back pain is in full swing and if I’m on my feet the swelling takes over.
Labor Signs: None. Keep cooking baby girl!
What I Miss: my hands not falling asleep all day long. I can’t sew, cut paper, type, cook without my hands falling asleep.
What I’m Looking Forward To: Organizing all the gifts and finishing her nursery.
Best Moment This Week: There were a few this past week. On Wednesday, we had a 4D ultrasound when I was at my parents house. AG has long eyelashes and lots of hair. I loved seeing her move, sleep, such her thumb, try to get her foot in her mouth and smile. I will definitely cherish those pictures.
Also, my baby shower this past Sunday. It was more than I could have ever imagined. I was so thankful for everyone braving the nasty weather to come and celebrate AG with us. My mom and best friends did an amazing job with all the special touches, I can’t wait to share pictures.
We also asked our best friends to be AG’s godparents. Thankfully, they both said yes =).
Thoughts: Overwhelmed with joy right now. I feel ready for her to be here. During the shower I couldn’t help but think about how many people already love her and can’t wait to meet her. She is such a blessed little one.
So close to the end, ack!!!!
