Baby O’s developments: His nails are growing, they may even be past his fingertips. He’s packing on the fat for the outside world.
Currently Craving: Burgers and lemonade
Weight gain this week: 1.2 lb, (31.2 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. One of the dreams I remember the most was being with my sister at Chipotle. We waited in line forever and then they told me they only had tofu left. I was so mad! I said, “don’t you see I’m pregnant and want meat?”. They pointed out the tofu only signs all over the walls and I couldn’t believe I didn’t notice it. Then I promptly left and said “let’s go to Burger King”. The dream ended before I could eat anything.
How I am feeling: I’m a little more uncomfortable than last week, but not by much. I wake up with some back pain, but that quickly goes away once I start moving about. I’ve felt a little nauseous and had a couple bouts of heartburn this weekend. My back almost always hurts at night, but it’s usually not too unbearable. I’ve noticed it hurts the most on the days I walk alot. Mentally, I feel very ready for Wyatt to make his grand entrance. I am so impatient!
Evidence of Pregnancy Brain: Adding and subtracting are giving me issues, haha.
Movement: Still squirming around alot! Maybe I’ll be able to see a foot one of these days?
Appointments: I had my 39 week appt with the doctor this morning. She said I’m opening on the outside of my cervix but not the inside. At least something is happening? She let me know that another patient last week with the similar progress as me (basically none) at 39 weeks, ended up having her baby at 39 weeks 5 days. That gives me a slight glimmer of hope that he might at least be on time. Besides all that, my blood pressure and baby’s heart rate were great.
Exercise: I walked 4 days last week for about 40 minutes each time, and one day did some weights at home.
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: Bought the Britax B-Nimble over the weekend. We originally bought a Snap n Go for our lightweight stroller (when we don’t need the BOB), but the Britax B-Safe car seat we have is one of the only car seats it doesn’t fit, grrr. Luckily it was easy to return at Target.
Days until due date: 6
