How far along: 39 Weeks
Size of baby: 7.25 pounds and 20 inches long!
Movement: Some days he moves and stretches so much, my belly is sore by the end of the night. The next day he sleeps all day!
Sleep: 6 out of 7 nights of good sleep. I'll take it :)
Symptoms: At my appointment yesterday we were shocked to find out I had slightly elevated blood pressure! I have had no swelling, or any other signs, but it was a little higher than normal. They monitored me and the baby for about an hour and sent me home. I'm supposed to lay on my side as much as possible, and try to stay off my feet. I feel absolutely NO different. I have no back pain or uncomfortable pressure yet.
What I miss: I do miss sleeping through the night without going the bathroom! But mostly I'm just trying to soak up every last second of being pregnant. I know this baby will come at any time, and I am enjoying every kick and moment with him inside of me. I will never get these days back once he is here!
Cravings: Ice, sweet tea, sub sandwiches, onions, the usual:)
Food Aversions: Nothing! I feel like I eat a ton. In fact, I told Krista what I ate for my 9 o'clock snack the other night, and I'm 99% sure she was disgusted. I am HUNGRY all the time! The baby must really be growing, because I lost more weight this week at the doctor's office.
Best Moment of the Week: Olivia asked me to rock her a couple of nights ago before bed. I'm not sure she has ever asked me to do that, because she is not a cuddler at all. My pregnancy hormones took over, and I found myself tearing up at the thought that she was such a big girl, and our sweet time together was getting ready to change. Both of us can hardly wait for this baby to get here, but at the same time, I'm enjoying my time with her before he gets here too! Her little body wrapped around my belly, and she rested her head on my chest, and the baby kicked and kicked, and she actually fell asleep. It was one of my favorite moments with my two sweet babies!
