Total weight gain/loss: 39 to 40 lbs (from 116 to 156)
Maternity clothes? Maternity pants, maternity dresses, maternity shirts, maternity everything. Honestly at this point, I hate wearing clothes and shoes. Except dresses, those are comfortable.
Stretch marks? Yes, on my bum. 😦
Sleep: It really depends, The shoulder pain finally went away after icing my shoulder 4 times a day and trying not to use it. The hip pain also mostly went away because I do hip stretches every night before bed and loosen them up on an exercise ball!
Best moment this week: Ironically I enjoyed Braxton Hicks contractions that started… I was happy that birth is getting so close but then of course I don’t like those contractions either. So an odd happy/uncomfortable thing. Just excited we are getting so close though!
Have you told family and friends: Yes
Miss Anything? I miss not having to stop when talking because the baby is pushing on my lungs so I gasp for air, not sweating through everything, and being able to walk without gasping for air.
Movement: Tons! Her movements are so large now a days!
Food cravings: Pickles, bacon, mayo, lemonade, chocolate, cold cut sandwiches, fries, meat (burgers, steak), NEW cravings: root beer, carbonated drinks, popcorn.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not any more.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, all of the time people come up to me and ask me when I’m due.
Gender prediction: Girl
Labor Signs: The nurse said she should be dropping any day, and I have practice contractions.
Belly Button in or out? In, but barely!
Wedding rings on or off? Had to buy cheap rings to wear, because my wedding rings were so uncomfortable and tight, but even those aren’t really fitting any more (comfortable any way).
Happy or Moody most of the time: Still very happy, but I am getting tired of some of the annoying symptoms. I.e. Heartburn, joint pain, and swollen feet.
Looking forward to: Watching baby girl grow even more, meeting baby girl, and getting closer to the due date! Only 4 more weeks to go!
