preggy update: 34-38 weeks

Monday, July 15, 2013

And now I bring you a preggy update! 34-38 Weeks

yesterday on the golf course with my hubby.  38 weeks.

How Far Along: 38 weeks today!  

Size of Baby: Georgia is the size of a small pumpkin!  She is about 18-20 inches long and weighs anywhere between 6-9 pounds!  AHHHHHHHHH 

Maternity Clothes: Still in them although I much prefer Matt’s t-shirts and my undies.  Now that I am on summer break I sometimes don’t change out of this attire all day. 

Stretch Marks: None yet.  Still doing my BioOil and Burt’s Bee’s Tummy Butter.  Although I have recently heard stories from women who developed them (gasp) after the baby…. Hoping that’s not me, but thankful for this little bunny rabbit inside of me.
  
Sleep: Sleep isn’t so comfy.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m tired.  But sleep is hard.  Verrrrry hard.  Maybe my body and God are prepping me for life after baby.

Best Moment of the Week/Past Month:  Oh my goodness hearing my baby’s heartbeat is so fun.  And seeing her wiggle around, although not the most comfy thing in the world, still amazes me.  I love her.  A lot.

 Movement:  Still working on her break dancing routine.  Although she’s running out of room as of late, so she’s using my organs as springboards.

Cravings: Mexican food and milk.  Yum.  Not together of course.

Gender: Still a baby girl :)

Belly Button In or Out: Barely holding its own as an innie.

Wedding Ring on or Off: I just took my engagement ring off this weekend.  My hands have started swelling in the mornings and while they always go down, I had a panic attack that one day they wouldn’t and my ring would be stuck.  So now I’m just rocking my wedding band.

Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Going more than 2 hours without devouring something delicious.  That makes me sick and sad.

What I Miss: Red red wine.  I see you in my future. 

What I am Looking Forward to: Holding my baby for the first time.  It feels so close I can hardly stand it.  So excited for cuddles.  Lots and lots of cuddles.

Labor Signs: YES!  YAYYYY.  I’ve been having some Braxton Hicks but not too many.  We shall see if Georgia hold out two more week or not.  

Nursery: Finished!!!!  WAHOOO.  I’ve got a nursery tour planned for you lovelies later this week!  EEEK
Emotions:  Overwhelmed.  The good kind.  I am so so excited to meet my baby girl.  It’s all I think about.

I took my rings off too even though they technically still fit - I was having anxiety that they would get stuck and they'd have to saw them off haha My husband told me I was crazy but it's one less thing to worry about!
