How far along? 37 weeks
Baby Size: About the size of a winter melon; 19-22in, 6.5lbs
Total weight gain/loss: 38.4lbs — weight is leveling out!
Stretch marks? No
Symptoms: Leg cramp. Tired. Braxton hicks. I think he shifted, and I have some nerve pain on my leg now whenever I move. Oh, baby!
Sleep: Same as last week – it’s rough! At least it’s not getting any worse 🙂
Best moment this week: Seeing my coworkers at our holiday party in DTLA. It was nice to dress up a bit and get out of the house! I miss downtown! Oh, and we got our holiday cards in earlier than I expected! Woo!
Worst moment of the week: Realizing this week will probably be the last week we leave for the city because we need to stick close to home now just in case!
Miss Anything? I’m finally getting bored at home. I know everyone says to enjoy the opportunity to do absolutely nothing, but it’s a big mental adjustment! Pretty much everything on my to-do list is done, and now I’m hunting for more stuff to do. This woman can only vegetate for so long!
Movement: I’ve finally felt the sensation of having his leg kick my rib – ouch! The little booger lol. Any woman I’ve talked to that has been pregnant knows the feeling!
Food cravings: Junk food — not sure if it’s been a serious craving or moreso a “I’m at the end of pregnancy so just let me eat junk food now” phase.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nopers
Labor Signs: Went through false labor on Monday – Braxton Hicks were getting increasingly intense and started to hurt at the end of the night. I went to lie down in bed and pain had stopped; next thing I knew, I fell asleep, so nope! No baby yet haha
Belly Button in or out? In-betweenie
Wedding rings on or off? On – no swelling!
Mood: Content – somewhat bored.
Looking forward to: Getting a pedicure within the next 3 days – not sure when yet. I can’t touch my toes anymore!
