I am now 39 weeks, so here is my 38 week update.
How far along: 38 weeks
How big is baby: Six pounds, twelve ounces and the size of a spaghetti squash.
Weight gain: 28 Pounds
Sleep: Sleep has been harder and harder these days especially since my stomach is just so large and heavy. I normally use a very small portion of our bed while sleeping, and poor Grant has been very crowded by the pillows I have been using to get more comfortable.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Most food doesn’t sound appealing, so I have been eating lots of plain foods which makes cooking not as fun. Since I will cook something, only to sit down and not want to eat it at all.
Movement: Less kicks,but more rolling movements since he is running out of room.
What I’m loving: That hopefully we will get to meet our baby soon.
Symptoms: Contractions off and on, and we actually had a pregnancy false alarm this week that I will better document in the birth story once that is written up.
What I’m looking forward to: Being done with pregnancy, it is a lot harder being pregnant while chasing a toddler. Just picking Reese up and carrying her around is really hard now.
Thoughts: Hoping we can narrow down a name, and that he holds on until my mom is in town.
Let me know if you have any questions!
