How far along: 38 weeks!
Baby Size: I had an ultrasound today and they estimated his weight at 6lbs 8oz. I read online though these estimates aren't very accurate so who knows what he'll end up weighing. But more important, he's growing properly and everything looks good.
Maternity clothes: Yup - and STILL thankful for skirts and dresses (I seriously HATE maternity pants!)
Stretch marks: I don't think so but who knows...
Sleep: Depends...some nights I sleep pretty well. Other nights not so much.
Gender: Momma's boy
Movement: Yeah, he still moves quite a bit and likes to jab me quite often!
Looking forward to: Date night tonight <3 - probably our last one before baby arrives.
Food cravings: brownie sundae, watermelon and grapes, and a Starbucks sugar-free vanilla soy steamer.
Weirdest food I ate this week: Nothing that I can think of. Trying to eat clean but I pretty much have a daily 'cheat' which is so bad I know but I can't help it! #fatgirlproblems #I'mpregnantleavemealone
Anything making you queasy or sick: I don't know what it is but mornings still aren't the greatest for me. I feel so nauseous/off all morning.
Labor Signs: BH contractions. Ultrasound tech also said he's super crazy low (yeah no kiddin' - no wonder why I'm in the bathroom every 15 minutes!)
What I miss: just feeling like myself - I've struggled a lot lately with this. I don't feel like myself. I don't look like myself. I'm just not me. And it sucks (and it sucks even more that even after I give birth I still won't feel/look like myself right away.)
Symptoms: so much pressure, achy lower back, constantly peeing, nerve pain that runs down my leg, and swollen ankles (especially when I don't drink enough water throughout the day.)
Nursery: Should finally get the JPEGs of the prints today so all I have to do with those is print them off, frame 'em, and have the hubs hang them up! Other than that I think it's as ready as it's going to be. It's not the greatest, cutest nursery ever, but it's simple and organized and that's pretty much all we need I guess.
Belly Button in or out?: Out I'd say and very sensitive
Wedding rings on or off?: On
Workouts: Down to 5 times a week....40-50 minutes of cardio, lots of stretching, and upper body strength training 2-3 times a week.
Things that suck: playing the waiting game...especially when I am SO over being pregnant!
Things that don't suck: trying to fit in as many date nights as possible with the hubs <3 I'm really going to miss it just being the 2 of us...but hopefully the little guy fits right in and we'll adjust quickly and love being a family of 3!!
