How far along are you?: 39w
How big is baby?: watermelon. I knew this fruit was coming, but it doesn't make the comparison any easier to swallow. Or have to push out of a bodily orifice.
Weight gain/loss?: Up 26lb
Stretch marks?: I know they may still be coming, but none yet.
Maternity clothes?: Um, have you seen this belly? Yes.
Sleep?: Getting worse by the day.
Best moment this week?: Having the nursery almost completed.
Food cravings?: You guessed it! Sugar and ice cream.
Gender?: It's a surprise, but I have a strong intuition that it is a boy.
Movement?: It is still moving a ton even though I expected movement to slow down at this point. I was worried it had flipped one night because of how strong the movements were.
Belly button?: I think it's an outie by now.
Symptoms?: Braxton-Hicks contractions, pressure on my cervix and bladder, back pain, hip pain, trouble sleeping, constant peeing.
What do I miss?: Wine and beer are starting to look better and better every day now that I know I can have a glass very soon. I also cannot wait to start running once I'm cleared. This is the best running weather and it's killing me to go on my slow walks.
What I'm looking forward to this week? Hitting 40 weeks. My ultrasound on Thursday. Finally doing a nursery post!
Milestones?: Finally being ready to have this baby!
