Well, once again the "turkey is fully cooked". I am 39 weeks pregnant and have done absolutely ZERO documentation of this pregnancy on the Blog. So, today I'll play a little bit of catch up
Here are my "STATS"
NOTE: I filled this out at 27 weeks (Blue) and 37 weeks (Pink) so I'll include both.
How far along? 27 Weeks / 37 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 9 lbs / 18 lbs
-Yes for shirts and pants, although I'm seriously not liking the way ANY pants are fitting. I do have a few pairs of Gap size 4 Curvy jeans that are low enough to accommodate baby and are SUPER comfy but I think this baby is sitting lower and they aren't super comfortable when sitting.
-YES! I spend most days in PJs but when I go out I rotate between a few tops and for pants, I wear leggings and one specific pair of maternity jeans.
Stretch marks? Nope / Nope
-Not bad. I usually don't have any trouble falling asleep, but a few nights a week I wake up at 3am and for one reason or another, I can't get back to sleep.
-NOT so good. Usually get one good night a week
-1 or 2 times a week I do a Perfect Pregnancy strength or Perfect Pregnancy yoga DVD and depending on the weather we walk 2 or 3 miles, once or twice on the weekend not as much much as I'd like. I am still toddler wrangling x2 and that could be considered "working out".
-Pretty much nothing at this point unless you'd count reaching down to tie my shoes, walking up and down the stairs a few times a day and carrying children out to and in from the car so they don't get NASTY in the snow.
Best moment this week:
-Spending Tuesday morning with E and getting to see Mini Sticks with her at the growth progress ultrasound that morning. One on one time with my big girl is so precious!
-A lunch date (NO KIDS) with my husband!!! Thank you Alison for making that happen!
-ALL THE TIME!!!
-EVEN MORE THAN ALL THE TIME!!!
Red meat! / French fries
-Not finding out!
-Still not finding out but it's a lot harder now to not know!
-Just Braxton Hicks contractions
-Yes, a lot more contractions and starting to dilate
Belly Button in or out? Out / Flat (long gone)
What I miss:
-Sarah!!!! (Sushi too)
-Still Sarah!!!! (STILL Sushi)
What I am looking forward to:
-My little sister is coming for Thanksgiving!
-Meeting and naming this baby!!!
-Our girls God Mother is coming for 2 weeks! I am beyond excited for the help and love I know she is bringing with her!
Weekly Wisdom: there have been a few this week...
-"Choose JOY!" My dear friend Katie
-"I don't think I'll start potty training so early with #2" Sarah
-"Don't focus so much on the light at the end of the tunnel that you miss the beautiful graffiti on the tunnel walls along the way." Stephanie
-Going from 2 to 3 is a lot easier than the transition from 1 to 2
-starting to dilate
Here are a few belly pictures...
Till next time!
