How Far Along: 37 Weeks – oh my! Where has the time gone?!
Total Weight Gain: 23lbs – finally putting on a bit of weight 🙂 It’s all baby though.
Maternity Clothes: Most of my maternity clothes are a bit tight now. The bands on my maternity pants slide down my belly now. I live in my maternity tank tops and sweat pants these days (my poor hubby), but they are most comfortable.
Sleep: Barely any. My mind races at night and then I can’t get comfortable. It makes my nights long and my days longer.
Best Moment This Week: Knowing I am close to two weeks until my due date and lots of pressure and braxton hicks!
Missing: cuddling with my hubby and my energy
Movement: If there is such thing as too much movement. He has run out of room and everytime he gets super active my ribs kill and it’s actually getting painful.
Cravings: not many. I don’t have much of an appetite these days, there isn’t much room for food anymore.
Labor Signs: LOTS of pressure and cramping/braxton hicks – hurry up little man!
Belly Button In or Out: Out, it’s been out since the beginning, don’t think it’s gonna change for a while
Wedding Rings On or Off: Still on, although on some of the warmer days or days I don’t move around much they get a little snug. I think I should make it until the hospital with them on at this point.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Trying my hardest to not be moody. This is hard, being this pregnant and trying to keep up with a toddler, give him the attention he deserves and wants, trying to keep up with a home and a husband. Most days I feel inadequate, I keep telling myself not much longer and push on.
Looking Forward To: My non maternity clothes, being able to get comfortable, holding my little boy.
Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Not really. I can’t eat much, if I over eat I feel a little sick
Feeling: Exhausted, uncomfortable, excited, impatient
Stretch Marks: Eh, my bump is looking a little strange. We will see how it turns out after this pregnancy, not sure I am going to be able to get it as tight and smooth as I did after my last pregnancy.
