38 Week Update

38 Week Update

How far along? 38 weeks! Home stretch!

Baby is the size of: a spaghetti squash, winter melon (not sure what that is?), a Pomeranian, and a ukulele.

Maternity clothes? I mean, not to brag, but I was able to fit into non-maternity yoga pants this weekend. ha! But mostly, yes.

Sleep: Sleep is still pretty good.  Rolling over and getting out of bed are tough. Tyler’s had to help me out of bed a couple of times.

Best moment this week: Getting to see her at our last ultrasound! My friend owns an elective ultrasound business, so I don’t feel bad being all “Can I look at my girl?” It’s great!

Movement: I still feel her, but not as many kicks and jabs. Now it’s butts in the rib cage. I did feel hiccups for the first time! I caught it on video!

Food cravings: I got my Halo Top Ice Cream (woohoo!) so that fix is satisfied.  I am finally wanting chicken…but fried chicken. I can handle it on the gestational diabetes diet as long as it is paired with veggies and not a lot of carbs.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really!

Symptoms: I’m having the pelvic pain again. I’ve been going to the chiropractor weekly, and I’m sure he can help when I go this week. I also had a charlie horse this morning. Boo!

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? I’m not wearing them most of the time so I don’t swell up.

Happy or moody most of the time: Had a great week. Again.  Thankful.

Looking forward to: Our doctor’s appointment Thursday.  I feel this the status of this appointment will determine our delivery plans.  The doctor won’t let me go late because of the gestational diabetes, so whether or not I’m progressed any will likely determine our course of action.

Just for an FYI- It may take me a bit to announce her arrival here on the blog, but my Instagram will have it pretty quickly. So if you want to stay updated, follow me on IG @brittneydeanne
