38 Week Baby Update

Friday, January 31, 2014






How far along? 38 weeks
Total weight gain: 22.5 pounds 
Maternity clothes? Sweats, stretchy jeans, maternity shirts, my hubby's clothes haha
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: This week has probably been the worst for me so far. I think it is a mix between the fact that I am very uncomfortable, I have Braxton Hicks contractions when I move around in bed, and I am feeling very anxious. 
Best moment this week: Visiting our friend's newborn baby boy. He was so sweet and precious, and it made me even more excited to meet our baby girl!
Miss anything? I just miss being able to get around easier and being more comfortable, but what pregnant woman doesn't ha?!
Movement: Still kicking my ribs and pressing her little bum against the the side of my stomach. She feels so big inside of me these days!
Food cravings: Soup, cheese, breads, cereal (can you say carbs?!), apples, bananas, and still wanting lots and lots of water
Anything making you queasy or sick: I still get sick when I eat, and my heartburn is obviously pretty bad at this point ha. But overall I feel like I am lucky to feel as good as I do :)
Gender: Girl 
Labor signs: Not that I can tell ha. I am only dilated to 1 cm right now
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions (lots and lots), nausea, swollen feet, swollen hands, lots of pressure, and my face is also a bit swollen
Belly button in or out? It is still out for the most part, but sometimes it still looks more in-between haha
Wedding rings on or off? I still keep it on most of the time, but there have been a few times now where my hands are just too swollen
Happy or moody most of the time: This week I have been anxious. I have also been super emotional as usual ha. And of course I am happy and excited! I guess I am just all over the place hehe
Looking forward to: MY BABY GIRL'S ARRIVAL! Only 2 more weeks until my due date!! WAHOO!!!


I really took it easy at the gym this week, but it felt so good to go! My doctor told me that I needed to try to stay off my feet as much as possible for the last couple of weeks, so I guess this will be my last gym pic until my baby girl gets here. I am kind of sad because going to the gym helps to keep me sane, but I am more than willing to do what is best for my sweet baby girl!

My appointment at the doctor today went well, but we are going to get another ultrasound to make sure that she is on track growth wise. She is still measuring a bit small (like usual), so they just want to make sure that she is progressing like she should be. I'm obviously feeling a bit anxious about this, but so grateful for modern technology and the ability that I have to get an ultrasound to see how she is doing :)
