38 Weeks

img_7784

How far along:  38 weeks

Total weight gain/loss:  24 pounds- Most weight out of all three babes

Maternity clothes: Yes, living in my leggings and pregnancy t-shirts.

Stretch Marks: I might have a couple around my belly button. It is really sore and almost looks like it is bruised. I think i also have one on the side of my belly in between my two scars where I got my gull bladder removed.

Symptoms: Perioiral dermatitis (rash on my face, but getting better), peeing frequently, very tired, round ligament pain,  lower pelvic pain, some swelling in my hands and feet, and heart burn- No new labor symptoms

Best Moment: Feeling ready for baby to arrive

Miss Anything: Sitting comfortably, not having heart burn, not being tired all of the time, and sleeping on my stomach

Movement: Lots- Sometimes I feel like the baby is trying to escape.

Food cravings: Still loving anything with peanut butter in it.  I made baby ruth peanut butter bars and they are going to be gone in no time at all.  I told Travis our grocery bill will probably decrease after baby because I will hopefully not want to make dessert every week.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing this week.

Have you started to show yet? Yes, Yes, Yes- Belly has a little bit of a torpedo look

Labor Signs: Nothing going on, not even braxton hicks- The waiting game begins

Belly button in or out: half popped and half flat

Gender:  Here are the girls stats: Kenna: went into labor 4 days early had her 3 days early.  She was 6 lbs 1 ounce (tiny little peanut)   Emmy: went into labor 9 days early and had her 8 days early.  She was 6 lbs  12 ounces.  If I follow the same progress that means I could go into labor this weekend:)

So my guess: October 16th- BOY/ nooo GIRL??  7 lbs 2 ounces – I really have no idea what the gender is.   I think I am going to have to go with girl. It just seems that it is going to be a girl. We have a pretty cute girl name picked out and tons of girls clothes so we are ready for a little girl. Trav has had a boy named picked out forever and we have a couple of cute baby boy clothes.  I am pretty sure I will have no problem buying a couple more boy clothes if it ends up being a boy:)

Wedding ring on or off? Still on.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody-happy, then sad, then tired, then happy again, then impatient, then mad, then happy again. LOL oh the joys of being 38 weeks pregnant and your hormones are crazy.  A lot more emotional this week.

Baby’s Heart Rate: 124- WHAT? Last week 180 this week 124. Baby you are going to drive me crazy.  The doctor said the baby was probably just sleeping.

Looking forward to:  Relaxing this weekend, watching football, carving pumpkins with the girl, maybe a fish fry.
