How far along? I am currently 39 weeks pregnant.
Total weight gain: 30 lbs… I never knew you could gain weight in your nose. Guess what? You can.
Maternity clothing: Does Derek’s clothing work? I am too cheap to go by more maternity when I am so close to being done. Like today, I decided to where his hoodie instead of anything I could find in my closet. Speaking of clothing and getting ready. By the end of the day it is super hard for me to bed down and take off my shoes. Derek is so good about helping me with my shoes.
Sleep: I have a hard time staying asleep. I get a couple of good hours and then I wake up and try to start solving all the worlds problems. Things about baby, getting things ready, when will he come, where will we be, etc. I have a lot on my mind and apparently that means no sleep. It is also getting SUPER hard to get out of bed or even move around for that matter! I almost always have to wake up Derek to get me out of bed. I cant get the momentum I need to do it. SO lame! I should also make a point to mention that Derek gets no sleep as well because of me… oops!
Labor signs: Yes, I have started to have labor signs. Earlier this week I had a “false alarm” and ended up at the hospital. They ended up sending me home once they checked me out and everything. I felt so embarrassed. My last doctor’s appointment I was dilated to a one and was 60% effaced. Dr. Heath did mention when he was checking everything, “Wow! He is very low. Its like you have a bowling ball down there!” I hope that is a good sign that he will come fast when he does decide to come!
Symptoms: This sums it up.
Wedding ring on or off? Still off and I hate it. I tell Derek at least a couple times a week that I miss my ring.
Mood: Anxious, and impatient! He needs to get here already!
Food cravings: Jalapeno peppers. I love them and I found some good ones that I can make at home.
Movement: At this point he isn’t kicking, he more just rolls around.
How’s Dad? More ready than I am and I didn’t think that was possible!
Miss anything: My thoughts aren’t really focused in that direction. I am really just ready for him to get here, and thats all I think about:)
Looking forward to: I have officially started maternity leave today and its one step closer! I am excited to get him here so I can put my maternity leave to good use. I am also looking forward to reading books, doing homework (trying to work ahead), and time to think and get ready for the next chapter.
Best moment of the week:
-Derek and I have been working hard to get everything ready for the baby. We have cleaned the car, have the carseat installed, cleaned the house, babies room is ready…. now all we need is the baby:)
-Sadie had her puppies this past week and it was the coolest experience ever! I am just glad I dont have to give birth to 7! (Other post to follow)
-Derek got me a push present! I got a kitchen aid and its amazing. Last night I made five dozen cookies for my office. It was such a breeze. I am hoping I can make bread soon.
