How Far Along: 39 Weeks 1 Day
Size of Baby: About 8 Pounds
Gender: It’s a Boy!
Nicknames for Baby: “Baby James” and “Kade" (which is Gaelic for Fourth)
Total weight gain/loss: 29 pounds gained still, but it's been fluctuating. I weighed 4 pounds more at my appointment last week, but then weighed the same as I did at my ultrasound last Tuesday today.
Symptoms: Heartburn, hip pressure, contractions, all sorts of things.
Cravings: Sweet things, specifically cheesecake.
Maternity Clothes: All the time, definitely the only clothes that make me half comfortable.
Stretch Marks: Big and itchy.
Sleep: I miss it, so, so much. I haven't slept well in a matter of weeks now.
Best Moment This Week: Getting closer to our due date! Only 6 days away now.
What I Miss: Not being pregnant, I can't wait to be able to touch my toes again!
Movement: Still all the time. Last night I woke up to him playing hacky sack with my ribs. That was fun.
Nausea Triggers: Just lots and lots of heartburn!
Belly Size: Definitely huge, and low. I feel stretched to my limit.
Nursery: Still haven't made much progress in the last few weeks. It's functional and ready for baby boy, but not entirely decorated or organized yet.
Workouts: Lots of walking and spending time on the birth ball.
Labor Signs: Tons and tons of contractions, and I'm dilated to 1cm. I had my membranes stripped today, so hopefully that kickstarts something :)
Belly Button: Flat
Wedding Rings: I took them off Sunday, and put a different ring on so I don't feel naked.
Mood: Super, duper ready to be done. I'm hot, uncomfortable, and impatient. But I know it will be over soon!
