38 Week Bumpdate
So my computer has officially died. This is all being posted from my phone, so I hope this works!
How Far Along: 38 Weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 20 pounds. However, I have been STARVING, so who knows!
Gender: It's a girl!
Movement: She loves to move and she really loves it when I am eating. Ha! (You will detect a theme in this post.)
Sleep: I was up and down and up and down all nights throughout the weekend, but had a 5 hour stretch last night, so that was great.
I think Carter is sensing that the baby is coming because he comes to my side of the bed in the middle of the night and does the most pathetic (yet cute) whine for me to pet him. He is also sleeping part of the night on my side of the bed and then will move to his pad on Tommy's side. Poor little guy.
Maternity Clothes: Basically, all maternity except for dresses and some tops. Remember when I thought I could get away with no maternity wear? Bhaaahaa!!!!
Symptoms: Um, can you develop motion sickness while pregnant? And you are the one driving? Because, yeah, I think I have that.
I may have startled the pregnancy waddle. So help me. It's usually only after I've been sitting so maybe that's excusable.
Also, I went to the doctor on Thursday and when he checked me he said I was still dilated to a one and 50% effaced (not a 3 and 75% like the nurse at the hospital told me) like the week prior. So obviously "checking" is a very exact science and is to be trusted.
Aversions: I am really just not that into vegetables (luckily, fruit rings my bell). Fried food still really does nothing for me.
Cravings: Sushi, pizza (still haven't had any yet but have lots of opportunities to this week), sweets, sweets and more sweets. Iris is having us over for dinner tonight and I made these Ghiradelli Brownie S'mores for dessert and I won't lie when I say I have been looking forward to them all day.
Best Moment this week: Hearing her heart beat, of course. Also, I am just being real here, but my niece had her third birthday party this past weekend (which was adorable and I cannot wait to show you all pictures) and one of the highlights was the Great American Cookie cake - like huge highlight.
