How far along? 37 weeks. Finally, officially, FULL TERM!
Total weight gain/loss: 35 lbs
Maternity clothes? Thankfully it's been about 80-85 degrees here in Ventura County, (rough , I know!)so I have been able to wear one of my favorite summer maternity pair of shorts and tops the past 2 days in a row. Sure, the whiteness of my legs may haunt people's dreams, but it feels so good to not be constricted by maternity pants!
Stretch marks? Can't tell.
Sleep: Terrible. Between nightmares that the baby dies, carpal tunnel symptoms, and leg cramps and one night of a super nauseous stomach...It's been a mess.
Best moment this week: This week has not been one of my better ones. Full of anxiety, worry--whatever you want to call it--I have sort of hermitized myself in the house just waiting for tomorrow to get here, so that we're one day closer. The best day this week was the entire weekend--my ol man and I did errands, attended a NYE early party and just hung out together. I love hanging out with him.
Miss Anything? No.
Movement: Much less this week..still getting enough kicks counted during kick counts, but it's considerably less throughout the day. Poor kid has run out of space.
Food cravings: Ice. Sour patch kids.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Chicken.
Labor Signs: Contractions here and there.
Symptoms: Carpal tunnel in both hands, leg cramps, back cramps, stiffness all over...but I'll take it! Dealing with these is much better than some other symptoms I could have. None of these will kill me..they just make me uncomfortable..and that's okay.
Belly Button in or out? sorta outtie
Wedding rings on or off? Off.
Happy or Moody?: Moody...and having trouble shaking it off.
Looking forward to: Monday- -it's NZ's birthday and we might just find out when we get to deliver. I received a call just before the weekend from the OB I saw on Thursday, that we're probably going to deliver early--she just needed to talk to one of her partners and would get back to us. So, maybe this will be my last update?! It's possible we'll meet him sometime this next week!
