Sleep: I was doing better this week. Just tons of sleep, but then last night I only got about 2 hours.
Exercise: Some walking here and there, but it's really hard for me to move my body at all at this point
Cravings/Aversions: Baby has started dropping and in turn, I now want to eat just about anything. I'm also trying to eat all the bad stuff I can before I have to be good again.
Weight: 41 lbs+
Pregnancy Symptom I'm not loving: Name something about pregnancy and I'm probably fed up with it at this point
What I am looking forward to: Dilating!
Think it's funny that: People are surprised I haven't popped yet. Oh and they've started a pool at work, wagering on when she'll make her big debut.
Favorite Moment this week(s): This is weird, but I was pretty excited when I was having regular contractions and the doctor told me to come in for a labor check. I thought it was too good to be true...and it was. I was sent home after 2 hours of no dilation.
My Doctor Says: I'm about the same as last week, although baby has started to drop, so that's good. She also doesn't think I'll go past my due date, but who really knows???
On another note: I got to meet my new little nephew this week. Baby Ryland was born on Monday at 6:30pm. Now he's just waiting patiently to meet his cousin!
Sleep: zzzzzzzz....huh, sleep? What's that? Sleep is currently my best friend and biggest enemy. As in, I'm not getting any, but want it real bad.
Exercise: Eh, not a lot. I try to walk, but I move slower than mud. Maybe this weekend.
Cravings/Aversions: Milk is pretty good for when I wake up at 3am and can't sleep. Other than that, I've been getting hungry but not really wanting anything.
Weight: 40 lbs+...real hot
Pregnancy Symptom I'm not loving: Still not loving being so large and in charge. Definitely don't like that I can't bend over. Also, hate rolling myself outta bed. Oh yeah AND the constant peeing.
What I am looking forward to: The next dr appt and finally finishing up the little lady's room. I've been too tired to tackle this head-on.
Think it's funny that: I'm so big. It's really ridiculous at this point.
Favorite Moment this week(s): I had moment of zen this week, where I realized I shouldn't be in a such a rush to get baby out. I should enjoy these last few weeks, because once she's here, that's it. There's no turning back. I've been trying to spend more time with DB and enjoy the bits of peace and quiet we have left. Bake a little longer if you wish Baby B...just bake away from my bladder, please!
My Doctor Says: Oh man, well I'm about 1.5 cm dilated and 30% effaced. Progress since last week. She's measuring about 10 days ahead of her due date in terms of size and call Guinness because I could be birthing the world's largest baby.
Sleep: I get up almost at the exact same times each night to pee. Midnight-ish, between 3-4am, and around 6:30-7am.
Exercise: No. Giving my body a break from the hell I just put it through
Cravings/Aversions: BBQ potato chips and salad with vinaigrette...not ranch
Weight: 37lbs+...I gained 5 lbs in a 10 days. My doc says it's all fluid and I believe it.
Pregnancy Symptom I'm not loving: The swelling. Nothing fits anymore, anywhere.
What I am looking forward to: Hitting full term next week and my baby shower.
Think it's funny that: I've now gotten so big. So big that it's almost comical.
Favorite Moment this week(s): Getting to see our little lady! We got the final ultrasound today. Baby B is measuring around 6.5 lbs with about 5 weeks to go, so she's going to be big. She's got big, chubby cheeks, DB's nose and my mouth. OH and DB's grouchy expression.
My Doctor Says: Everything is right on track and uncomfortable as expected!
And last but not least: We got a TON of stuff last week from my brother and sister-in-law. So thankful for that. Baby B's going to be dressed to the nines for the first year of life. No doubt.
