38 weeks 5 days

LAST Pregnancy Post!!

259 263 265 253

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 38 weeks 5 days

Size of baby: Watermelon (as obviously seen in my pics…ha!)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 142…total weight gain is 27 lbs!!!  I didn’t gain any weight!  Pretty sure this is the least amount I’ve gained in any pregnancy…but I' think I’m the biggest.  How strange is that?  Maybe its just that I’ve been wearing shorts & tank tops as opposed to pants and long sleeved shirts?  Oh well!

Maternity Clothes: Of course!  I live in shorts & tank tops!  (I plan on STAYING in maternity clothes for awhile too…ha!)

Movement: She loves to kick out  my right side and my right ribs!!  At the same time something gets my left hip…I don’t know what it is…but she has no more room!

Sleep: I am STILL having a hard time sleeping!  I tried one night without Tylenol PM and I only slept 2 hours…ugh!  I asked the doctor if I could take some tonight and he told me to take 2!  I’m going to bed at 9pm!!!

What I miss: I don’t know…I know I will miss my baby inside of me!

Cravings: Good food!!

Symptoms: I’ve had quite a few contractions.  Her movements are painful too.  Just in the past 2 days, I’ve started waddling and my back really hurts too (down low).  I’m glad I don’t have to wait for her to come on her own!  The doctor said he thinks she’s big.  I’m hoping she sticks around 8 lbs 3-4oz like bubba & sister!  I can’t wait to see what she looks like!

I’m very excited about tomorrow.  The kids are excited also.  This isn’t the best post because right now the kids are screaming and going crazy and Justin is in a bad mood because he had to make supper.  Maybe I’ll have a more touching post later :)  See you on the other side of  pregnancy!

37 weeks 5 days

028 021 025

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 37 weeks 5 days

Size of baby: Watermelon (as obviously seen in my pics…ha!)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 142…total weight gain is 27 lbs! Hoping to stay below 30 lbs before delivery!!

Maternity Clothes: Yes! Everything is starting to get small though…not covering the belly very good AT ALL!!!  I actually wore some of Justin’s workout shorts (not biking tights..ha!) the other day.  It as amusing.

Movement: She moves A TON and is kicking my ribs constantly!!!  It’s very uncomfortable at times…but cute :)  People can see when she is kicking out…like…from across the room.  ;)

Sleep: Insomnia…I just can’t sleep without Tylenol PM! 

What I miss: Not Waddling everywhere…and I miss a smaller butt.

Cravings: ICE ICE BABY!!! (which of course freezes Katy, so she moves around a lot when I do this!)

Symptoms:  Feeling better this week than last…mainly I’m just tired and I try to stay off my feet as often as I can (sometimes not very often).  I’m best when I’m propped up in the recliner or laying down in bed.  I’ve also been pretty emotional…crying for no reason…like not being able to clean the house as much as I want to.  BUT…justin is doing a good job of that for me!

I have one more appointment the DAY BEFORE my c-section!!  So hopefully one more pregnancy post!  They say they stop gaining AS MUCH weight the last few weeks…I hope so because I think she’s the biggest baby we’ll have!!!

Almost 36 weeks



(excuse Natalie’s hair please…it’s lovely isn’t it?)

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 35 weeks 6 days

Size of baby: 19-20 inches and 6-7 lbs

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 139…total weight gain is 24 lbs!  Hoping to stay below 30 lbs before delivery!!

Maternity Clothes: Yes! I also still wear my t-shirts.  I’m not in many maternity shirts anymore because most are tight fitting shirts and I think its a little vulgar with my popped belly button and back rolls :)

Movement: Having more nudges than anything…but today she has been moving and bouncing around…  :)

Sleep: Ughhh…I miss sleep.  I’m waking often and peeing all the time.  I’m exhausted and can’t sleep because of my children.  :)  good times!

What I miss: Energy and to be able to stand and not get light headed.

Cravings: Blah…food = indigestion and gas.

Symptoms: Extremely light headed, swollen feeling in hands & feet (although its not visible), indigestion, braxton hicks all the time, and extreme exhaustion.

Good news is…as of today we only have 3 weeks until the c-section!  I am NOT dilated, my cervix is still very high (but soft!)…so I don’t think I’ll be having her in the next week or so.  I kind of hope she decides to come sometime between 37 weeks and c-section date though…I’m miserable.  Logistically I want her to wait until 5/26…but emotionally…and physically…I’m READY!  AHHHH!!!!  I’m miserable!
