still hangin on
I am 38 weeks ! Yay!
I am still hanging on. I have a doctor’s appointment this afternoon so we’ll see what (if any progress) is being made. The last 2 weeks I have been 1 cm dilated with a spongy cervix.
Oh, I am also sick. Grubby kiddos! I am super congested with a stuffy nose so I am hoping Trey stays put until I kick this thing. The weather finally changed here and it has caused everyone to be sick. This happens to me every year too! The weather FINALLY changes to be beautiful and I’m sick. Whatever.
Me at 37.5 weeks
Me at 38 weeks playing with Bella in the backyard
Cravings: Same. Last night I ate chips and salsa for dinner. No lie. Oops. #dinnerfail
Weight Gain: I’m up 29 pounds. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Stretch Marks: Still NONE! Although I am starting to seriously wonder what on earth my stomach is going to look like after this is all over. Ha!
Swelling: Still no swelling! I love love love that I am still wearing my wedding rings without problems.
Movement: Trey moving is my nemesis. I live and die by those movements and he has never been a super hard kicker so it took me a long time to feel him (and I have an anterior placenta) and then once I could feel him he was inconsistent with his movement. He still is. Some days he is a kicking, rolling mess and other days barely a peep. It stresses me out so badly.
Sleep: Better now that it has cooled down. But I am still uncomfortable as can be! My back and hips hurt a lot at night. But sweet Bella has started sleeping right up against my back and that helps a ton. It’s like an anchor for me to lean on. She’s a good dog!
Group B Strep Test: PASSED! Holla!
Can’t wait for my appointment today….hopefully I have something to update you with soon!
