Baby M 2.0 Update: Week 38

Oh, I am ready for this pregnancy to be over. Not much longer now! 

How far along? 38 weeks
Total weight gain: Uh… I am not sure. I have lost track. I’d say I’ve gained enough! lol
Maternity clothes?
For as large and in charge that this belly is- definitely in maternity clothes.
Stretch marks?
don’t think I have any new ones yet but I have noticed that the ones on
my sides have looked a little red like perhaps they are getting longer
or stretching more.
Sleep: Still
sleeping relatively well. I
do feel like I am getting up a little more to go to the bathroom at

Best moment this week: Finally got all the backsplash tile up in the kitchen. Just need to grout it now. Also, got a lot of other small things done around the house. Plus, we carved P’s first pumpkin. She wasn’t a fan of the insides, AT ALL, but I think she still had fun with it. 

Miss Anything? I just want to breathe!!!!! Ready to not have a sore lower back and hips as well.

Movement: She
definitely moves a lot. She is definitely running out of space in there
and likes to make her presence known by pushing herself up, out and
under my ribs. 
Food cravings: nope, nothing
Anything making you queasy or sick: Mostly
just letting too much time pass between eating. I swear, if I don’t eat
as soon as I feel like I am a little hungry, then it hits me out of no
where and I am shakey.
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Not really but did find out at my doctor’s appt. yesterday that I am dilated 2-3 cm. and 75% effaced. 🙂 Yay for progress!
Belly Button (in or out): I’m
gonna just say out. It isn’t fully flat but I have a feeling it will be
by the end which is interesting because it wasn’t with Miss P.

Wedding Rings (on or off): On but towards the evenings I do feel like my fingers are swelling a little.
Symptoms: Congestion!

BLAH! Lower back pain if I am walking way too much. Hip pain when sleeping on one side too
long. I am definitely warm/hot at night. Going to the bathroom a little more these days. And, this belly is getting heavy… I’m done!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Oh, I definitely had some moody days this week. I was still happy most of the time but I have also had some not so fun pissy, crying moments.
Looking forward to: My parents arrive this week so that means… whenever Baby M wants to arrive she can!!! 🙂
