I’ll do a weekly bump update so I can look back and see how things progress and what was happening at various points along the way.
14 days to go!
Is it the 25th yet? Is it? IS IT?!
I guess I should feel lucky that I known the day our Bean will be here (unless the Dr’s move it up or it decides to make make its appearance earlier). As well, the 25th is 6 days before my actual due date, which helps speed things along. I’m just feeling impatient.
We have the room in pretty good shape with it being painted, the rug is down, crib assembled, and I’ve been organizing and reorganizing the stuff in the dresser and the things on the bookcase. As well, we’re working on some craft projects at this point for the room, like Price is making a mobile and I’m doing some travel themed crafts to put on the walls.
I’ve been sorting things out this week related to maternity leave. There was a bit, brief misunderstanding about a policy at work, but as the state statuate MMLA trumps the federal FMLA I am all set. I am just thankful that it’s all sorted out and I have all instructions and joyful paperwork to do to have everything going smoothly. Plus, I’ve been clearing up all the crap I’ve accumulated on/under my desk… books, shoes, paperwork, jackets, etc. Kinda nice to purge it all out, but hate bringing it home as it’s just more stuff there to deal with.
Another Ultrasound tomorrow morning and then again Non-stress Test on Thursday. I think I am approaching 20 ultrasounds now, maybe even surpassed that! At least it never gets tiring seeing The Bean. :-)
37 Week Bump Update
Current Due Date: 12/1/13- BUT I’m scheduled for my C-section on 11/25! Thanksgiving in the hospital!
Weight Gain: didn’t get weighed this week but I’m sure the halloween candy I’ve eaten recently is not gonna help with the next weigh in…
Stretch Marks: none :-)
Belly Button: even more shallow but still in!
Clothing: looking forward to getting home every night so I can wear PJ’s and sweats. I think it’s the cosy nesting + cold weather + pregnancy
Cravings/Aversions: I want to eat all the Shake Shack. ALL OF IT.
Sleep: I can’t get enough some days doing to bed at 8.30 and then other days I will stay up until Price scolds me to go to bed at 11. Still get quite ticked off every time I wake up in the middle of the night.
Mood: Fine. I feel really impatient having to repeat the same stuff over and over again to different people weather it’s family, friends, or doctors at my multiple appointments each week. I know they are just being nice checking in but I just want a do not disturb button like on my phone at work. This is all too much talking for this ‘observer’.
Emily reminded me of this from How I Met Your Mother…
I just feel that I don’t have to update unless it’s an 8 or higher. So if I’m not in labor, I’m all good.
Movement: our mellow baby is just relaxing in there for the most part, plus it’s pretty cramped at this point.
Milestones: offically full term
What I miss: sleeping on my stomach since I am getting uncomfortable always sleeping on my left side.
What I am looking forward to: getting through this week
Comparable Fruit/Veggie Size: Winter Melon (Average size: 18.9 – 20.2 inches head to toe, 6.2 – 9.2 lbs) via The Bump
