38 Weeks


How far along?  
38 Weeks


Total weight gain/loss? 
30 pounds - I gained over 50 pounds with Sawyer and was knocking on 200. This pregnancy was pretty different as I did not swell much and I had to run around after a toddler. 

Maternity clothes?
Pretty much everything. I have a few pair of large shorts with elastic bands that are pretty comfortable that I can wear. I didn't want to buy a lot of hot weather maternity clothes since I was due in the early part of summer so I've been trying to make the most out of what I had from my first pregnancy. Sawyer was born in March so that didn't leave me with many summer maternity pieces. I'm thankful  our May this year has been pretty mild so I've been able to use my leggings and some stretchy pants too. I have one pair of shorts that I feel like I have lived in lately.

Stretch marks? 
No new ones except around my belly button. I'm curious to see how noticeable they will be once my tummy goes back down.

Sleep? 
Still waking up at 2am but some nights are better than others. I did pretty much sleep through the night once this week which was amazing. However, the night before my 38 week appointment was awful and just knew I was about to go into labor. I even packed our bags and took them with us to my appointment. Turns out I had not progressed at all from my 36 week appointment....wah wah.

Best moment this week? 

Spending time with wildcat and family. Just slowing down and enjoying the moment is amazing and not done often enough.

Miss anything? 
I really miss my energy and ability to move around easily. It takes so much out of me just to get in the floor and play with Sawyer.

Movement? 
Our little girl gives me fits. My OB said how she acts in the womb is an indicator of how she will act outside. This is not great news as Sawyer did not give me any problems like this little girl and we call him wildcat......uh-oh.

Food cravings?
I've wanted fruit lately but that's not really out of the norm for me. I love berries!! We stopped and bought a watermelon this week from the local market and I almost made myself sick on it. I also LOVE watermelon!

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
Nope

Gender?
Baby Girl, Isla Katherine

Symptoms?
Lots of pain, pressure and Braxton Hicks. My OB suggested that I only work a couple days a week because of the long drive I have to get to work so that is exactly what I did. It has made a HUGE difference. I've also had some leaky boobs this week.

Labor Signs? 
Braxton Hicks and cramping but she is still hanging in there.

Belly Button in or out?
Outy all the way and love it.

Wedding rings on or off? 
Off, sadly. I feel lost without them and freak out at first when I don't feel them on my finger.

Happy or Moody most of the time?
This momma is Happy, Happy, Happy. I can't wait for our new addition to get here.

Looking forward to?
Seeing Isla Kate's little face for the first time.

36 & 37 Weeks




How far along?  
36 & 37 Weeks


Total weight gain/loss? 
About 28 pounds so far. I lost 4 pounds a few weeks back but I'm pretty sure the difference was because I had a morning appointment rather than my usual afternoon appointment.

Maternity clothes?
Almost everything is maternity with the exception of cardigans and a few maxi skirts.

Stretch marks? 
Pretty sure I have a new one around my belly button but I haven't noticed any others.

Sleep? 
hahahaha- what is sleep? I am now using the snoogle and it has been a lifesaver but I'm still not sleeping great. Bathroom breaks during the night are more frequent and getting comfortable is a challenge.

Best moment these weeks? 

Finishing up the nursery and watching the belly grow. The time is getting closer!

Miss anything? 
Sleep and being able to move easily.

Movement? 
This girl may be a soccer player!

Food cravings?
Not much cravings lately although I am eating ice cream at night pretty regularly. #oops

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
Nuh-huh

Gender?
Baby Girl.

Symptoms?
Been having Braxton Hicks and lots of pain with this pregnancy. I didn't have any braxton hicks with Sawyer nor was I in any pain. It has been completely different this time. I worked until the day I went into labor with Sawyer but I just can't handle the hour drive to work this go around. I don't know how long I will make it with this one.

Labor Signs? 
Braxton Hicks fo sho.

Belly Button in or out?
I have a cute little outy going on now and I love that you can see it when I wear stuff that hugs my belly.

Wedding rings on or off? 
still on

 Happy or Moody most of the time?
Happy Momma for the most part except for when I;m just worn out and sleep deprived at the end of the day. Having a toddler to care for this pregnancy has been a whole new ball game.

Looking forward to?
The arrival of our baby girl!
