Oh man, am I ready to start doing blog posts about the baby and not pregnancy! Hopefully only about 1 week to go!
Symptoms?: Mostly the same. Work is done, so most days I feel better since I get to relax when I need to. But other days I’m not feeling very well–like today. I slept horrible last night. Not sure if I was having contractions or not, but my lower pelvis area and back hurt and I had a head ache and felt nauseous. I feel a little better now, but it’s not what I would call a good day.
Weight gain?: Same as last week so up 24 lbs total
Movement?: Yep, she is still moving very well for how squished she is in there.
Stretch marks?: Yep, I think I’m even getting some more on my belly 😦
Belly button–in or out?: It’s out for sure by the end of the day–I even took a picture to show 🙂
Best thing that happened this week?: Work being done!
Any baby-related purchases this week?: Nope–oh, well we went to Costco today and stocked up on batteries 🙂
Labor progress?: At today’s appt, 1 cm dilated, 80% effaced, -3 station. Dr. Dick thinks she will be out right around her due date and we shouldn’t have to induce.
Milestones reached?: Officially on maternity leave!!!
What size is the baby?: Still a watermelon. About 7lbs and 20″ long
Belly picture: I chopped my hair off 🙂
