Eekss.. I’ve officially almost arrived to the end of the journey. In just a few days I will be 40 weeks pregnant. It’s amazing how much time is incorporated in making a little one. I also find it less scary than I thought it would be.
I thought I would do a comparison of my half way point and my almost done point.
I find if funny in how small the rest of my body looks now compared to my body then when my belly was smaller.
How far along: 39 wk 4 d
Total weight gain: 26 lbs
Maternity clothes: Yes. Pants and Shirts..But mostly just lounge clothes and a few of my bf t-shirts.
Stretch marks: Nope….only a few days left so hopefully this doesn’t change
Belly button: in, out and flat…. really depends on the day, how I am siting / laying
Sleep: Good. Wake up each time to turn sides ( mb 2-3 times a night) and go the bathroom. No discomfort really with sleeping. I also have been having this weird thing happening where I wake up coughing with a feeling that I was choking in my sleep. So strange. It sometimes is accompanied by heartburn. Must be due to the lack of space in my organ region haha.
Best moment this week: My guy is finally back in the state as of 39 weeks, so it’s nice that he is here to wait out the arrival of our little one. 🙂
Miss anything: Being able to get up with ease.
Movement: Yes still lots. He still favors my right side. Likes to give me rib jabs as well.
Food cravings: None. Have been on a OJ and Chocolate Soymilk kick lately though.
Food aversions/morning sickness: None.
Gender: Boy 🙂
Mood: Calm for the most part. I can tell since 37 weeks I tend to get a little more emotional about things ( episodes of Parenthood, newborn videos on YouTube, haha pictures of newborns with puppy dogs just to name a few).
