39 Week Update
How far along: 39 weeks .....One week away from my due date!!!
Total weight gain: 29 pounds gained!
Maternity clothes: Yes still mixed in with my regular clothes but the 9 month mark has definitely challenged my wardrobe selection.
Stretch marks: Not yet!! keeping my fingers crossed that it stays that way and trying to prepare myself for "body after baby". I don't want to put to much pressure on myself to jump right back to my old self. As they say in the books it took 9 months to get here so its going to take some time to get back and I'm totally good with that!
Sleep: Surprisingly pretty good... guess I better enjoy it now!
Miss Anything: Besides the obvious cocktail and sushi... being able to cuddle my hubby and sit comfortably are definitely missed! You are just so awkward at this stage in pregnancy. Also try giving a urine sample at the doctors office during your 9th month... it's comedy hour!
Cravings: Nothing really stands out at this point I have just enjoyed indulging a bit more this month! Im usually pretty disciplined so its been nice to indulge more and think my hubby really likes it too ;)
Symptoms: I have been having Braxton hicks and some other little signs that things are progressing (will spare you the details) but nothing yet!
Belly Button in or out: Out
Mood: This week has been a bit of a roller coaster. One day I'm super over being prego and so ready to meet my little girl then the next I'm nervous for the delivery and being completely responsible for a tiny little life! Im sure this is all normal at this point Its just a little nerve racking that it could happen any minute!
Best Moment this week: Staying in my PJ's all day on Saturday (while it was storming here in OC) with the hubby catching up on the entire second season of Damages and ordering In!
Looking forward to: Some contractions or water breaking ;) I may regret saying that once it happens but I really am SO excited to meet my daughter and start this next chapter in life!!
Exercise: Just walking a few days a week now.
* Always LOVE hearing your advice and thoughts esp from all the mamas out there!
