Things that are 38 Weeks



How far along: 38 weeks + 5 days

Total weight gain: My weight has kind of tapered off, and I'm told that that is normal.

How I’ve felt in my workouts: I haven't really been working out much this week. I have been feeling extra tired, and sleep does not come easily. I did manage to go for a 1.21 mile walk Thursday and a 1.85 mile walk on Saturday. I didn't attend barre, because we went out with friends instead.

Stretch marks: I've gotten a few of them. 

Best moment(s) this week: I got to go to my friends sons birthday party on Saturday (which included swimming), and enjoyed a dance concert for City Days on Friday night.

Miss anything: Being able to sit in comfort, it's getting harder to be in any position. Even laying down still puts pressure on my hips. Being able to see my ankles.

Movement: It's decreased some, but I have increased in Braxton hicks. When I asked my doctor about the decrease with the BH he said those are like giving your baby a big bear hug.

Food cravings: I've been avoiding some foods still like eggs, and pasta. I've been liking colder foods like fruit, shave ice and salads. :)

Anything make you queasy or sick: I've been nauseous a few times on and off. But it's mostly loss of appetite.

Have you started to show yet: Every day.

Happy or moody most of the time: I've been pretty happy this week. I have been trying to stay positive and relaxed.

Symptoms: Exhausted and very swollen ankles. I've tried everything for my ankles, but not even compression socks are helping now.

Belly button in or out: I won't be an outie. 

Buys for baby: I have bought quite a bit of items. Muslin swaddles, more burp cloths, a baby nest, and trying to buy things to finish up decorating the baby's room. I will show pictures when its completed (hopefully before he comes).

Prayer Requests: That I remain calm and relaxed and that I will show some progression at my next appointment.

Looking forward to: If he doesn't come this week I'll be looking forward to some yummy strawberries and cream from Strawberry Day's, and Chase's work summer party. If he does come this week then we'll have to get out and enjoy those things too. :)

And please just a friendly reminder...

Chase and I are asking to wait patiently with us and not asked for updates or asked if I've had the baby yet. This goes back to my prayer request of remaining calm and relaxed. Getting messages from friends and family asking if I've had the baby can do the opposite and even discourage me. We will let you know as soon as we do have the baby. TRUST ME!
