37 Weeks

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

How far along & size of the baby: 37 weeks (considered full term- yay!) The ultrasound on Friday estimates the baby to be about 6 lbs. I can work with that.

Cravings: Ice, slushies, and the smell of Melaleuca's grapefruit bar of soap. Not to sound too crazy but I also LOVE the smell of Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner...

On my mind: As of last week I'm 2 cm dilated and the Dr can feel his head! She said she wouldn't be surprised if I went early. TRYING not to get my hopes up since I am SO uncomfortable. My aching back...

36 Weeks

Thursday, April 25, 2013

How far along & size of the baby: 36th week. Baby is approximately the size of a honeydew melon! Can't wait for our ultrasound to find out a more accurate size.

Cravings: Any fruity thing frozen or slushy (Slurpees, Popsicles, frozen Capri Suns, etc.)

On my mind: Is there such thing as pregnancy induced OCD? If so, I've got it. And I'm wondering when I will sleep again. I don't sleep now because my back and hips ache so bad or I just can't breathe. I don't expect to sleep much once the baby gets here. So maybe in a year or so?

(Here's a full body shot for kicks. I've officially outgrown the maternity hoodie. I. am. huge.)

35 Weeks

Monday, April 15, 2013

How far along & size of the baby: 35/35 today! (35 weeks with 35 days to go!) Baby is the size of a coconut and my Dr. guesses he's about 5 lbs, but feels a little on the long side.

Cravings: Definitely slurpees!

On my mind: My appt on Friday went well. He's still head down even though I feel him EVERYWHERE...hence the long body. We spent all day Saturday at a birthing class and I feel like we are getting very prepared for his arrival. Next up, our last ultrasound to sneak a peak!

33 & 34 Weeks

33 weeks

34 weeks

How far along & Size of the baby: 34 weeks and my baby is somewhere between 4.4 and 5.8 lbs! If I had to guess I'm going to say he's toward the bigger end.

Cravings: Again, nothing crazy. Fruit, cereal, and ice cream seem to be pretty consistent though.

On my mind: We did our hospital tour last week, installed the car seat and we have a birthing class this upcoming weekend. We are getting so close that I want to have everything ready I still have a few things on my list and would just like to be prepared as soon as possible.

I'm really curious as to what position the baby is in currently. He's always been head down but lately I feel/see a huge bulge on the left side of my belly and another on my right side. (Head and butt?) Hoping he's not transverse!
