Bumpdate #12: 38 Weeks
Baby is about the size of a pumpkin!
Total weight gain: About 27 pounds
Maternity Clothes: Only one of Sam's jackets fits me now. Maternity leggings (they are getting holes from so much wear!), maternity jeans, maternity shirts, Sam's shirts. I just recently had the realization that one day I get to wear regular clothes again!
Stretch marks: No stretch marks. Lots of cocoa butter and belly balm.
Belly button: Outie.
Wedding ring: On.
Movement: I frequently feel a foot pushing out on my right side near my ribs. Baby gets hiccups every day. Lots of movement in the morning and right before bed.
Sleep: I wake up many times every night to go to the bathroom and usually one of those times I have a hard time going back to sleep recently. Heartburn has also been waking me up. However, when I'm asleep I sleep really well and I have been taking naps!
Cravings: No cravings.
Last doctor appointment: We go every week these days so we had an appointment with our midwife on Tuesday. Everything is looking great! Measuring right on, both baby and I are healthy. In fact, my midwife said she wishes she could clone be and have all of her moms be as healthy and easy. She also said to be ready but also keep living our lives. What a strange time of life.
Feeling: This morning I had the thought "We are having a baby THIS MONTH!" Even if baby is late (my midwife will induce if it's a week past my due date), that is still only 3 weeks from now. We are so excited and can't believe we get to meet our little one in the next 0-3 weeks! I'm also excited at the idea of not being pregnant anymore. Mostly I have loved being pregnant (at least the second and third trimesters), and I especially love feeling all of baby's little kicks and movements, but I am looking forward to being able to easily put on shoes, easily turn to look out the back of my car when I back up, not wake up to heartburn every night, wear regular clothes, etc. We are also continuing with nesting mode. I've been scrubbing baseboards and stocking the freezer and organizing baby clothes!
Missing anything: Non-maternity jeans, beer, easily backing out of a parking spot
