I have been neglecting the blog lately... sleeping and nesting have overtaken me these days. Here's what's been going on....
How far along: 38 weeks 1 day
Total Weight Gain: 33 lbs... I can't believe the scale these days. I hope we have a little chunker =)
Maternity Clothes: Using all maternity pants and can still mix in regular tops.
Stretch Marks: Still good - fingers crossed!
Sleep: Sleeping through the night with the occasional lower back pain.
Best moment(s) of this week: I finally am caught up on removing all tags, washing and organizing all baby clothes!
My co-workers also threw me a baby shower and it was wonderful!
Also, I wanted to say congratulations to my sister-in-law on her new baby girl!
Miss Anything: I am really missing cuddles with the hubby lately.
Movement: He is still moving like crazy! Distinguishing body parts now - I think we felt his heel the other night across my side.
Food Cravings: Nothing out of the ordinary but, I did recently buy Trader Joe's Cookie Butter and that was a big mistake. I am pretty sure this will be gone by the weekend.
Gender: Boy, Boy, Boy!
Labor Signs: No labor signs yet.
Belly Button (in/out): It is coming out slowly... still pretty flush.
Wedding ring (on/off): On!
Looking forward to: Our maternity shoot this weekend!
Doctors Appointment: Dr. said he is still head down and he thinks we will have a 7 1/2 lb baby! Woo! He also told us to call when we think labor has begun if we are in the 5-1-1 Labor Rule. 5-1-1 means having contractions 5 minutes apart lasting for 1 minute for one full hour. I would like to labor at home for as long as possible, so I hope the pain is tolerable and this is doable.
My current To Do list:
Find a pediatrician
Pick a middle name
Decide on a bookshelf or shelving
Install car seat
Complete birth plan
Test run to the hospital
Pack hospital bag
Pack Ryder's Bag
- Frozen Meal Prep
My mom (3 days before delivering my sister) & I
I hope to keep you updated these last few weeks. =)
