How far along am I?
How big is the baby?
The size of a coconut.
How much weight have I gained?
Pre-pregnancy weight: 130lbs Current weight: 150lbs (down 2lbs)
I’ve gained a total of 20lbs so far.
*I will update after every doctor’s appointment as their scale is more accurate than the one at home.
Doctor’s Appointment Update
The doctor’s appointment went great! My weight and blood pressure are good. Baby’s heartbeat is good at around 145 BPM. My belly is measuring 35 weeks and is right on target. This doctor’s appointment was a tad bit different because I got tested for GBS and I also got checked to see if I dilated any yet. I am 2cm dilated and 70% effaced! I know, I know…I could be stuck here for a while OR baby could come at any time at this point. The midwife said that she doesn’t think I’ll make it to my due date of May 23rd. This is getting so real now! I’m super excited and scared at the same time. The feeling is crazy. I can’t wait to meet my baby girl and I’m glad that everything is moving along as expected.
Yes. I have some maternity jeans and shirts. I’m also wearing a lot of my maxi dresses that I had before pregnancy. They still fit fine.
None yet. I’m using cocoa butter and lotion to help prevent.
Lots! It’s really starting to hurt now and be very uncomfortable. It’s like she’s rolling around in there.
How am I sleeping?
I’m not getting much sleep due to a very active baby.
My best moment this week
Spending time with Jordyn!
Do I miss anything?
Not getting kicked every 5 seconds LOL. It’s really starting to hurt now.
Belly button in or out?
It has officially popped! It’s so weird!
Wedding ring on or off?
My engagement ring is OFF! I put it up. My wedding band is still on though for now.
What am I eating?
I’m eating pretty much the same things, but trying to add in more fruits, veggies, and fiber! I’ve been doing better with my water.
How do I feel? Symptoms?
TIRED! Trouble sleeping. More and more braxton hicks. Shortness of breath. Super dry skin. Back aches. LEG CRAMPS. Stomach itching. Sore boobs. Pressure. Sinus issues. Baby brain. HOT…and I’m usually cold. Dizziness. Finger joints hurting. Slight swelling in fingers and feet.
Have I started to show yet:
Am I happy or moody most of the time?
What am I looking forward to?
Getting my hair braided so I don’t have to worry with it after labor! Also my 1 year anniversary 🙂
