Baby O’s Size: Pumpkin – about 20”, 7 lb
Baby O’s developments: Wyatt is busy gaining weight and growing some hair on his head. He’s shedding the waxy layer on top of his skin in preparation for life on the outside.
Currently Craving: Fruity drinks
Weight gain this week: 1.6 lb, (30 lb total)
Sleep & Dreams: Sleep has been the same… a lot of tossing at turning, and getting up about once nightly to use the bathroom. I’ve had lots of elaborate dreams lately. It’s funny that in most of them I am pregnant. But haven’t had had any “forget the baby” dreams for a few weeks. I used to have them all the time.
How I am feeling: Still not too shabby considering I’m 9 months pregnant. I only seem to get truly uncomfortable at night. My hands swell up alot, especially after exercise. I am starting to feel more cramping and pressure down there. Hopefully Wyatt is making his way down. It definitely feels like the waiting game now. I’m sure from now until the time he is born time will be dragging.
Evidence of Pregnancy Brain: More like pregnancy clumsiness this week. I’ve been dropping things left and right, and running into tables. I have 2 nice bruises on my leg to show for it.
Movement: Still squirming around alot!
Appointments: I had my 38 week appt with the doctor this morning. Still not dilating at all. I got my results of Group B Strep, negative! Yay! That basically just means that I can chill and labor at home for longer, and I won’t need antibiotics during labor. If I make it to my 39 week appointment (which seems pretty likely), she will sweep my membranes if I’m dilated to see if we can start making more progress.
Exercise: I walked alot this week! I aimed for about 45 minutes every morning on the treadmill. Walking is supposed to be great for the baby to make his way down. I also took Bella out with me for a lap around the neighborhood, but apparently she ate SO much grass that she ended up coughing it up the rest of the day. That will probably be the end of taking Bella for a while. I don’t want to spend my whole walk prying her away from the grass. I have no clue why she likes it so much?
Innie or outie: It’s pretty flat, but not an outie yet.
Stretch marks: None yet, woohoo!
Rings on or off: Off
Maternity wear: Getting sick of it!
Baby related purchases: Nothing new this week, but we are still setting things up. The BOB is next on the list.
Days until due date: Lucky 13
Last but not least, the winner of my What to Expect Book Giveaway, Linzi! Congrats!
