Week 38 Bumpdate

by Ally- Life as I know it, 8:10 AM


How Many Weeks: 38 weeks 5 days

Size of Baby: At our 35 week ultrasound he was estimated to be 6 lbs 5 oz so I'm going to guess he's around 7.5 lbs by now. 

Gender: Boy

Movement: When he's awake he moves a ton but I have noticed he'll have quiet periods when he's deep sleeping. A lot of shifting and rolling around, rarely feel kicks anymore. There's just no room!

Sleep: I've been pretty tired lately so my sleep has been good. I'll wake up to go the bathroom 3 or so times in the night but I'm able to fall back asleep.

Maternity Clothes: Love these leggings I got from Target. Those and a maternity shirt or an over sized regular shirt are all I'm wearing these days.

Weight Gain: About 30 lbs.

Symptoms: Crampy but kind of like round ligament pains but also feels like the baby trying to stretch? I think it's just my body getting ready for labor. Braxton Hicks at work. My blood pressure was still up at my last weeks appointment. Not any higher than it's been just staying around 140/90. Urine is always negative for protein though. Overall I feel great just ready for the baby to come!

Cravings/Aversions: Junk food and sweets. 

Missing Most: A Pumpkin Beer!

Nursery: I'm going to post it this week!

Hubby: Has his bags all packed and ready.

Best Part of the Week: Baby passing his weekly Non Stress Test. He almost didn't pass his test the week before which had me all nervous ( the Dr. said he was probably just sleeping) but luckily he did great this week!

Can't Wait For: The baby did what I asked and didn't arrive before October, but now he's taking his time. I do have my induction set so I know he will for sure be here by then!
