I am still here.....and pregnant! I cannot believe it!
How far along: 38 Weeks
Size of baby: Your baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds (at my doctor appt this past Friday he estimated her around 7.5 lbs...wow!!) and she's over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). She has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.
Weight gain: 36 lbs
Maternity clothes: mostly all maternity clothes besides some shirts/dresses
Movement: Yes, she has slowed a little bit - but with the doc guessing she is around 7.5 lbs - there cant be much room to move!
Sleep: Not sleeping that great..but its manageable!
Symptoms: Back pain, braxton hicks/regular contractions, swollen feet, hands and face...
Cravings: Cold water. I have always usually preferred room temperature water but lately I prefer super cold water, and as always - Sweets!!
Best Moment this week: I was able to do some black Friday shopping and get some great deals - LOVE that! Plus, all of our Christmas gifts are wrapped and under my trees - such a fun and exciting time!! I had an appt this past Friday (after shopping of course :) and my dr said that she has made her way through my pelvis and my chances of a csection are low - wonderful news! I still do have potential issues with my cerclage issues, but I am just praying that all is okay and I have a smooth, quick delivery!
What I am looking forward to: Having this little girl! I am very thankful to have gone past full term with this pregnancy. I am just dying to hold our daughter though - hopefully SOON!!
