38 Week Update|| 2.2.2017
How far along: 38 weeks
Baby size: Dr. estimated her to be about 6 lbs at our appointment on Wednesday and is estimating her to be in the 7 lb. range when she is born.
Baby's progress: She is head down! Which I know can change but we are hopeful that she stays in this position. I was head down the week before I was born and when my Mom went into labor I was coming out butt first so they had to do an emergency c section. Fingers crossed little miss stays put!
Weight gain: 27 lbs so far
Maternity clothes: I am pretty much wearing all maternity clothes and when I am not in maternity clothes I have been wearing all of Anthony's clothes and mainly fleece pj pants
Stretch marks: There are more and more appearing as Baby Girl keeps growing. I keep moisturizing but I know that at this point there is not much that can be done. Plus I plan on sporting one piece swim suits from here on out anyways!
Belly Button in or out: finally an outty :)
Sleep: Sleeping is getting a little bit better. Other than I have this reoccurring tooth ache or my teeth are moving from where I had that tooth pulled out at the beginning of this pregnancy. The ache always hits in the middle of the night and wakes me up. Tylenol is helping for now.
Movement: Her complete movements have completely slowed down and instead we are getting more frequent and much stronger kicks and jabs. My rib pain came back this week which I blame to her much larger size and legs up in there being able to kick them.
Best moment this week: Sorting through all of her baby shower gifts and I finally got checked at our appointment on Wednesday and the Dr. confirmed she is head down.
Looking forward to: Getting the final details figured out at home and just waiting for some labor signs
Food cravings: Still milk but my appetite has really gone down in the last week or so. Oh and heartburn has returned.
Weirdest food I ate this week: Sloppy joes, I never really want them but this week I was craving them and had Anthony make them one night for dinner and I found myself eating them for leftovers for the next two nights.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Thankfully nothing just the heartburn that has returned
Labor signs: On Saturday after my shower I had one contraction that was not a BH but I blame it on the hooplah of the day and lack of water. When the Dr. checked me on Wednesday he said that my cervix is closed but is soft and that she is head down. All good signs since we were still a little early. I would really like to make it to 39, even 40 weeks, just so Rowan has plenty of time to do all the developing in there that she needs.
What I miss: Strawberry daqouris! I ended up ordering one on Monday night that was a virgin one. Not quite the same but hit the spot just a little bit. I am also missing sleeping on my belly, being able to roll over in bed easily, my ankles, and wearing normal shoes.
Symptoms: Still have swelling but only in my ankles and hands. My BP has been perfect so we are not worried about the swelling.
Workouts: Nade. I have been pretty tired and Ohio has been so cold that I haven't really ventured outside. This weekend is supposed to be in the 50's but rainy. Maybe if we get a break in the rain I will take Tyson for a walk.
Things that suck: Swollen ankles!
Nursery? We have pretty much everything done. I still need to hang a couple things above her dresser and make her bed and then I will be getting some pictures up on here of her little nook.
Nesting? Nesting had kicked in but it quickly disappeared. I find it comes and goes randomly. Like Thursday night I was on a mission to get as much laundry done as possible but it fizzled out by like 10:00. I only have like 2 more loads and then it just all needs put away and we will be good, well until next week! lol
