How Far Along: 38 Weeks
Size of baby: Watermelon...and it feels like one!
Total Weight Gained: Who cares at this point!
Maternity Clothes: I prefer to wear my yoga pants at all times. I have managed to wear my dress a few times.
Gender: Girl! Kimber Diane Haik
Movement: Oh man has she dropped. I can feel her kick my ribs and move her legs and feet all the time.
Sleep: Sleep....what is that??? I sleep for about two hours at a time.
What I miss: Oh gosh at this point I have no clue. All I can think about is when will she decide to make her appearance.
Cravings: Sweets! same ole same ole
Symptoms: Pretty intense Braxton Hicks contractions. I thought for sure yesterday was the day. I thought I was having true contractions so I started timing them and called to ask the nurse, she said nope you are having Braxton Hicks...really???!!! The swelling in my legs and feet is so much better.
Best Moment this week: I have been working so hard to complete my Thank You cards from all of my showers and I only have about 8 left!! At this point I really don't know because I can't remember a darn thing.
I went to the St. John's Women Center last Wednesday to learn about breast feeding and how to pump. Man there is much to know! It really was overwhelming. I definitely recommend all new moms to meet with Shelia there, she is wonderful!
I am currently trying to eat spicy foods, walk a lot, and to do several squats every night. I have a doctor appointment tomorrow so I am excited to find out how I have progressed. My dad thinks I will have a Turkey baby and one of my coworkers thinks the 25th. I'm not going to get my hopes up because every time I think something is going to happen it is a false alarm.
