How Far Along:
Still pregnant! 38 wks
Total Weight Gained: 16lbs
Maternity Clothes: Ok really. I might be wearing my sweatpants and too small t-shirts to work this week. I am running out of room in my maternity clothes.
Sleep: I’m tired all the time but I can’t sleep. I get up at least 3 times a night to pee.
Best Moment of the Week: Bathroom is finished!! That’s all I have to share.
Food Cravings: Cake. I’m still going to Sonic every morning for a water. The lady knows my order when she sees me pull in.
Food Aversions: Eggs. Berty had some nasty smelling omelet at good ole Waffle House on Saturday and I thought I would die!
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks. Pressure. Back pain. Indigestion. Luckily I haven’t had any swelling so I’m very thankful for that!
JP’s Symptoms: Berty busted his butt to make sure the bathroom was finished this weekend. I may or may not have threatened his living situation but it was finished and he still lives with me!
Movement: When she moves it hurts. I have been neurotically writing down all her movements so I can make sure I feel her enough during the day.
Gender: Girl – Turner McCartney
What I miss: Not being pregnant. I can’t remember what it’s like to not be pregnant.
What I'm looking forward to: I guess I’m looking forward to going BACK to the doctor on Monday to see if I’ve made any progress. I would really like for my child to make her appearance soon.
Weekly Wisdom: Ignore people. I mean I understand I’ve been pregnant for years. I don’t need to be reminded. Yes, I’m about to pop. I look in the mirror every morning.
Milestones: 11 days left.
Berty went with me to the doc yesterday. I am 1.5cm. Should I be excited about the .5cm change?
He wants to see me back Monday to check my progress again. He really wants me to be dilated more before we induce. I would prefer to go into labor on my own but we will see. I have a small window of time to work around the hubs off pattern. He will take off work regardless but we would like for her to come while he’s off so he doesn’t have to take so much time off work.
I’m walking every night till Monday to try and hurry things along. I wish I had thought to ask about stripping my membranes. Maybe he can do that on Monday?
Have a great Tuesday friends!!
