How far along: 38 weeks! Also known as 5338 weeks pregnant.
Size of Baby: My app says a swiss chard (whatever that is) but lets just tell it like it is, he's fully cooked!
Gender: baby boy
Best/Worst moment this week: Finishing the nursery! And not going into labor while my husband was out of town...
This week was a tough one because we lost my husband's Grandfather, one of Rowan's two namesakes, and I couldn't be there with my husband and his family at the funeral. We are so sad that he didn't get to meet Rowan but we know he is watching over his great-grandson from above.
Weight gain: +36lbs. Just keeping it real here folks.
Maternity clothes: Even maternity shirts are starting to get tight. See above.
Stretch marks: Happy to say my belly is free from stretch marks (just some broken capillaries near the old belly button piercing, which according to my OB will go away). On the other hand, the ladies have matching stretch marks (and their own zip code these days) so take it from me and apply that lotion to other places besides your belly!
Belly button in or out: Still half in, half out
Wedding Rings on or off: Can't wait to wear these again!
Sleep: Actually slightly better, I think out of sheer exhaustion I just sleep through my need to pee five thousand times.
Miss anything: Being in the "cute" stage of pregnancy as opposed to the "feeling like a whale" stage
Movement: Still lots of shifting, stretches, and hiccups. He's really active between 11 PM and 1 AM so clearly we have a night owl on our hands!
Cravings: This kid may or may not be made out of chocolate.
Symptoms: Exhaustion, sore swollen feet, round ligament pains. And my face is officially chubby
Labor Signs: Some cramping but no contractions yet. I wasn't dilated at all last week but I think he has dropped since then so lets hope for some progress at today's appointment!
Nursery: Full reveal coming MONDAY!
Looking forward to: That moment when I can tell Steve to grab our bags because the babe is on the way :) Who knows, maybe this will be my last bumpdate?!
