My Belly {38 weeks}

Another spot on {and hilarious} pregnancy report from AlphaMom that I just had to share: 
 
Your Baby:
  • Is officially a little chunkin, at well over six pounds and 19 1/2 inches long.
  • Is also officially considered “full term.” In other words, he or she is STRAIGHT UP FREELOADING from here on out.
  • Is practicing making fists and fetal breathing in anticipation of life outside the womb.
You:
  • Have probably had enough of this magical special time, thank you very much.
  • Backaches, joint aches, heartburn, indigestion, constipation, Braxton-Hicks contractions, painful kicks, bladder pressure, stretch marks, itchy skin, swollen ankles, fatigue, dry mouth, mood swings, did I miss anything else in this cavalcade of late-pregnancy hilarity?
  • Are alternating between crazy excitement about finally meeting your baby and crazy panic about oh my God, you’re finally going to meet your baby and they’re going to expect that you take it home and like, keep it alive and stuff.
Too funny, right?
Now for my update:
Nugget this week...
*may have an inch of hair
*is shedding her vernix caseosa (aka cheesy white goo)

Size of the baby?  
taking her last weight measurement and adding an ounce a day (which is what she should be gaining every day) she would weigh 6 pounds 10 ounces right now.

Total Weight Gain/Loss?  
32 pounds...womp womp.

Maternity Clothes?  
I have one pair of preggo jeans, a maternity dress, two maternity tops and three maternity tanks...other than that it's all NON-maternity because you all know my extreme hatred for maternity clothes.

Stretch marks?  
38 weeks and not one stretch mark! Holler if you hear me!

Best Moments?  
My brother's wedding! It was so fun being surrounded by family!

Movement? 
I am feeling A LOT more movement down low...little flutters, which I think are probably her hands? I'm hoping that the down low action means she's pushing her way down.

Food Cravings?  
Not really any cravings. Still lovin' my sweets!

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
Meat. blah!

What I miss?  
Not being pregnant! I am so ready for this little one to get the heck out!

Nausea/Vomiting?  
Thankfully NO!

Symptoms? 
Heartburn, Leg Cramps, Sore Back, Big Belly, Pregnancy Boredom, Shortness of Breath...the list goes on and on.

Labor signs?  
As of my doctor's appointment on Monday I am 50% effaced and 1 cm dilated and baby girl has dropped a bit...so while it's not a ton, we are making progress people!

Gender? 
BABY GIRL 

Belly Button In or Out?
I think its officially classified as an outie.

Wedding rings On or Off?  
The rings are still on!

Sleep?
What sleep? My sleepless nights are currently sponsored by bathroom breaks (at least 3 a night), leg cramps and heartburn.

What I'm looking forward to? 
Meeting our baby girl!!!!!

Not to scare you but my sister had her daughter at exactly 38 weeks!!! Holy crap!!! I am so excited for you! I love that she is a "chunkin". And don't be sad about weight gain, my sister gained 40lbs and lost it within 2 weeks...all she did was breast feed (she obvi couldn't workout since she had a C section). Youll pop back!

Kelly said...

She is SUCH a freeloader!!! ;-D It just hit me this morning that Baby Girl could come at ANY point!! So excited for you guys.

Hang in there- it's almost time! I love the line about taking her home. Don't stress about the weight, you've gained an ideal amount & remember about 20lbs of that is the baby, fluids, extra blood etc.
