Can I just say....that I never thought we would get to the 40 week post, but here I am! My patience has definitely been tested these last few weeks, but I am excited there is an end in sight and that we get to meet our son so SO soon!
How far along? 40 weeks...5 days! Oy vey!
Baby Size: A small pumpkin or a jackfruit.
Total weight gain: 29 pounds, but let's just call it 30 for getting back in shape post-baby!
Maternity clothes? Lately, I've been wearing workout/yoga clothes. All of which are non-maternity. I'm officially over it! ;)
Stretch marks? I think I can safely say I got through this pregnancy sans stretch marks, BUT I am super worried that this will change once my milk comes in!
Sleep: Sleeping well...I am definitely lucky.
Best moment this week: Hmmm...probably my foot massage! But in reality, I'm just waiting waiting waiting!
Miss Anything? I miss my due date! Haha, does that count??
Movement: Still movin' and groovin'!
Food cravings: Still love anything refreshing...lemonade, fruit, ice cold water...
Anything making you queasy or sick: No...I even had raw onions on a sandwich the other night and they weren't so bad!
Labor Signs: Still no labor signs at my 40 week appointment, and I definitely cried! It's very frustrating feeling like everything is in order but he's just not budging! Definitely a stubborn little stinker! And believe me, I've tried everything under the moon to help induce things naturally...going in for acupuncture this morning!
Symptoms: Lower cramping, swollen feet, having to pee every 5 minutes...the usual!
Belly Button in or out? Still at a halfie status...practically an outie now!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Definitely frustrated! But I'm still relatively comfortable and can't complain about how I feel. Just SOO ready to meet our little guy!
Looking forward to: Meeting our son! We will be induced on Wednesday night if he doesn't decide to come between now and then. Have any of you been induced? How did it go?!?
In closing this chapter, I want to thank all of you for your love, support, and advice along this journey. Being able to connect with so many mamas and friends here has made my pregnancy a truly amazing experience. You've all kept me in check and I'm so pleased that I have a weekly recap of our pregnancy to look back on. So THANK YOU!!!
In the coming days, I will be introducing you to some inspiring mamas and letting them share their motherhood experiences. I'm so grateful that they've agreed to step in, while I'm spending quality time with baby and recovering...hope you enjoy!
