How far along? 40 Weeks. 0 days left. ( Due date is April 24th – I also post the night before )
Size of baby? Sammy is about 20.1 inches long and average weight is 7 lbs 4 oz. . I had a weight ultrasound done yesterday and she was estimated to weigh 7lbs 15oz. According to the bump, she is the size of a jackfruit.
Maternity Clothes? Same stuff. I found a dress or two I can fit in. Dons basketball shorts and a t-shirt are my favorite when I get off work.
Weight Gain? 40 lbs as of yesterday. I refuse to gain any more. Typically the last few weeks of pregnancy you taper off or lose weight.
Stretch Marks? Mmmm -mmh. Haven’t found anymore (currently lower abdomen and my side boobies).
Sleep? I have been staying up really late (11pm-1am) but still getting enough sleep. The weather has been nice enough to leave the windows open which I HATE because anything and everything wakes me up ( not a new thing) and those spring birdies love to sing so early in the morning!
Missing anything? I am curious to know how life is without a belly. We went on our evening walk and I was goofing off. I began jogging for like 2.5 seconds and I think running is going to comical when I start back.
Craving anything? Nothing really! Peanut butter. I love peanut butter.
Any sickness? Nauseas!!!!
Baby Movement? Yep! She just moves back and forth to get comfortable.
Belly Button:In the mornings it’s in, and the afternoons it’s out.
Labor Signs: I passed my mucous plug (at least I am pretty certain). I am still 1 cm dilated and 60% effaced. Baby Samantha is still head down (phew!) and in a good position for birth ! I have been having light inconsistent contractions (much like period cramps). I can tell they are contractions because they wrap around and are off and on VS being constant and just in the lower abdomen.
Mood: I am becoming impatient. Not impatient with baby but with people. It’s not anyone’s fault BUT my own and at least I realize that. The constant EVERYDAY questions about how am I feeling and has there been any changes has started bothering me. I know that people ask because they care and I am learning to appreciate that. It’s just hard.
Symptoms: Constipation, flatulence, Restless Leg Syndrome (like woah), lightening crotch, and hip discomfort. Doesn’t pregnancy sound so FUN !
Milestones: Made it to the due-date, bags packed and began the first steps of labor.
Looking Forward to: giving birth before my induction date (which is in two weeks).
Happy bUmpday !
