38 Weeks

38 weeks

38 Weeks, 2 Days

My Baby is as big as a: Watermelon (19-22 in, 6.5 lbs)

Due Date: April 23, 2014

Gender: Boy!

Weight Gained: 17 – 20 pounds

Symptoms: I feel like someone punched me in the vagina (sorry Grandma, but that’s the best way I can think to describe it).

Food Cravings/Aversions: I am not really craving anything, which sucks because I feel hungry but there is nothing I really want to eat. I miss my love for food. I still have a crazy sweet tooth.

Sleep: Better this week. One or two long nights. I can’t wait to be done work so I can take naps.

Miss Anything? My body. This belly gets in the way a lot. Looking forward to being able to lie comfortably on my back again.

Looking forward to: Maternity Leave! 3 more days of work!

Belly Button in or out? Out

Wedding Rings: On

Happy or moody most of the time? Happy. My patience is starting to run thin, which makes work not so great.

New Baby Items: One of my best friends from back home sent me this amazing mama care package. Friends are the best. I was so grateful to open this box filled with tried and true items, some that I didn’t even know I needed!

CarePackage

Maternity Clothes: Going to try to make it to the end without buying anything new. 🙂

Exercise: 

Monday – Elliptical (20 min) Arms

That was actually it. With so much pressure on my pelvis and hips I find even walking to be really uncomfortable. I am trying to get walks in where ever I can. I’ve been doing lots of last-minute shopping, so my exercise routine this week basically consisted of long walked around Target and the mall.
