Total weight gain/measurements: 26 pounds.
Maternity clothes: Yes, I am wearing only maternity clothes and filling them out nicely!
Sleep: I am tossing and turning more and more. I am uncomfortable but I do allow myself to still get plenty of time to sleep. I really think that I am just not a lying on my side sleeper. I miss lying on my belly. I really think that these last two weeks are really just preparing me for my sleepless nights that are in my future:)
Best moment this week: My best moments are just getting things finished. I finished the felt fire pit for the tippee. Hung black out curtains up for baby to sleep during the day. The crib is done and ready. The car seat is in the car and ready. I got my car cleaned and my oil changed. I finally finished all my thank you’s from my baby shower. I also made a google account for baby. If you want to email him, his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org . I boiled all of the breast pump parts and bottles so that is all ready to go if I need it.
Miss anything? Abdominal muscles and bladder volume, hehe!
Movement: Tons of movement, he is getting so strong!!
Food cravings: Smoothies….been obsessing about smoothies?
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Labor signs: No, having a few moments of cramping. I am chalking them up to braxton hicks. Still having pain in my vaginal area. I have read up on it and many moms complain about this symptom called lightning crotch, lovely.
Symptoms: My fingers are still really swollen which makes my finger joints hurt. Feet are starting to swell, I can’t seem to get any of my ‘nice’ shoes on…so its tennis shoes and flip flops. Oh, and there is still heart burn every now and then…
Belly button in or out? Pretty much an outie now!
Wedding rings on or off? I am wearing my wedding band only. I have just come to terms with leaving it on all the time. I even tried to put my wedding ring on and I literally could not force it on. Bummer, I love my ring:)
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and moody, I have felt better this week because I have accomplished so much. We had our maternity photo shoot last Saturday and I think they turned out amazing! We had them taken at sunset and the evening was perfect. Not too hot and not buggy at all. I can’t wait to see them!!
Looking forward to: These next couple of weeks coming to an end and getting to hold my little boy in my arms. Also, my ultrasound/appointments went well last week. The baby is measuring big(39 weeks) around the waist. The femur and head circumference are measure 38 weeks. With the ultrasound measurements had an estimated babies weight at 7 pounds 14 ounces. It is am estimate and I know that the ultrasound can be off by a pound or two so I am trying not to focus on the ultrasound measurements. Since he is measuring big and I only have two weeks left(up too three weeks), each time I go to the doctor they are going to do another quick ultrasound to make sure he is healthy and happy.
Days to go: 14 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of a leek. He weighs around 6.8 pounds and is 19.5 inches long from head to heel. He has a firm grasp, which you’ll soon be able to test when I hold his hand for the first time. His organs are matured and are ready for life outside the womb. If he is born with brown eyes, they are likely to stay brown, which is the color of Rick’s eyes. If he is born with blue or gray eyes they possible could turn to green or hazel which is the color of my eyes. I can’t wait to see my beautiful baby boy!
