How Far Along:
79 36 weeks
Total Weight Gained: 16lbs – I gained 2 pounds last week.
Maternity Clothes: I still wear my t-shirts at home but they don’t cover the belly. I would rather wear the same pair of leggings every single day than wear maternity jeans. They drive me crazy for some reason.
Sleep: I’m exhausted by the end of the day. I probably won’t survive motherhood. I tend to turn into the pregnant biotch from hell when I’m running on a lack of sleep!
Best Moment of the Week: I’m really trying to think of a fabulous moment this week but let’s be honest, I’m 27 months pregnant and over it.
Food Cravings: Anything sweet. And lots and lots of water. I’m not nearly as hungry as I have been. I’m pretty sure I’m going to pop out a 10lb baby. I have no room left for food!!
Food Aversions: Eggs. And my fridge smells like some kind of green vegetable and I cannot get rid of the smell!! I’ve thrown everything away! Makes me want to puke!!
Symptoms: I hurt. My back hurts. More than anything….my vag hurts. Apparently it has to stretch for the baby to come out. Who knew?! You’d think I would have researched this a little more before I got knocked up. You live and you learn right?!
JP’s Symptoms: I’m pretty sure that Berty does not understand that I’ve been pregnant for what feels like years. I need to just suck it up and deal with it for the next 3 weeks. Ummm yeah. Ok.
Movement: She’s so low. I feel her feet in my ribs and her head-? on my bladder. When she moves I may or may not pee on myself. But just a little!
Gender: Girl – Turner McCartney
What I miss: Normal clothes. Normal boobs – you know boobs that don’t leak. I’m not going to know what to do when I can bend over!
What I'm looking forward to: Ummm….her birth. But not the labor part. Just all the parts after that!
Weekly Wisdom: People who tell you your baby will come when she is ready need to be punched in the face. You think I don’t know she’ll come when she’s ready?! No sh*t! I’m ready now and I realize that’s selfish. Ask me if I care.
Milestones: As of today there are 25 days till my due date. It doesn’t sound like a long time but it feels like forever!
I had my doctor’s appointment yesterday. I’m still only 1cm dilated and about 70% effaced. I’m praying for more progress by next Monday. I don’t want to be induced but let’s be real. If I make it to my due date, TM is being kicked out!
