37 Weeks

16 Jan

How far along? 37 Weeks (and 4 days)
Total weight gain/loss: 3.8 pounds in 9 months and 3 weeks…. I finally did it! 🙂
Maternity clothes? On and off still
Best moment this week: Finally realizing that I get to meet her in less than a MONTH! DO YOU SEE THIS COUNTDOWN ON THE RIGHT SIDE??? IT SAYS 17 DAYS!!! WHAT????!!!! It will be single digits next week.  INSANE.
Movement: NO ROOM.  It seems that she favors my right side, lots of kicking and poking.  Sometimes, usually during the evening, I feel like she is going to “fall out.”  It’s a strange/uncomfortable sensation.  Moms- anyone else experience that?
Food cravings: Banana cream pie.
Gender: Girliest of girly baby Hokie fans 🙂
Labor Signs: Between 1-2.5 cm dilated! But that could last for months…. lots of uncomfortable Braxton Hicks- they are a strange feeling too.
Stretch marks? Yep….speaking of stretch marks…convo with the husband
Me: I have stretch marks now….do you still like me just as much?
Jeff: No offense babe- but you’ve had stretch marks since I’ve known you
What I miss: Sushi. Not feeling like a beached whale.

What I am looking forward to: The best is yet to come 🙂
Weekly Wisdom: Always fight for what you believe in! 🙂
Milestones:  Nursery is ready! The crib has sheets on it.  The stroller is put together.  Car seat is in. Changing pad is up.  Dresser is put together…we are ready!!!

How far along? 35 Weeks (and 1 day)
Total weight gain/loss: Not sure since my last post. I go to the doctor again in two days…can’t wait to see my holiday weight gain number!
Maternity clothes? For the most part.  Mainly maternity pants….
Best moment this week: Everything! Baby nursery put together. Baby Shower! (more on those later)
Movement: All the time. Everywhere.  I think she is running out of room. QUICK!
Food cravings: Nada….chocolate occasionally….
Gender: PINK!
Labor Signs: Nope…FIVE MORE WEEKS.
Stretch marks? Yep…it’s okay.
What I miss: Feeling like I can get up from the couch/bed without rolling.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting little miss KAP
Weekly Wisdom: Small, early meals= NO heartburn 🙂
Milestones:  Making it this far…everyday is a milestone!

33 Weeks

21 Dec

How far along? 33 Weeks (and 4 days)
Total weight gain/loss: According to the doctor’s appointment last week…I lost another 1/2 pound….I can ASSURE you come the next appointment (Jan 3rd)- I will have gained wait.  Just watch….
Maternity clothes? Well today I have on size 6 Talbot’s dress pants. WOOHOO!! However- I did buy my first “complete” maternity outfit on Tuesday…and I’m not one to brag but it is BANGIN’. C’mon- PINK JEGGINGS!!!! Here’s a peek:

Best moment this week: Finally purchased paint for the nursery- it’s a shade of gray- by Olympic- Secret Passage (Zero VOC & low odor!)
Movement: Everywhere….she sure is a looooong baby & takes up a lot of room
Food cravings: Not so much.  Instead- I can never decide what I want to eat. It’s bad…..
Gender: Still girl- guess we will know for sure in SIX weeks!!!!!
Labor Signs: NONE!
Stretch marks? Sure.  Thankful for everyone one of them!
What I miss: Having energy.  Having nice skin.  WARM WEATHER.
What I am looking forward to: Staying home from work with KAP 🙂
Weekly Wisdom: It’s slightly harder to shop ALL day when (almost) 8.5 months pregnant….so when you get tired- rest! (and then start again…..) Also- don’t forget to HYDRATE & NOURISH that baby!
Milestones:  Still wearing non-preggo pants (is that a milestone?:))
