How far along? 38 weeks... HOW???
Total weight gain: not checking!
Maternity clothes? Maternity jeggings, leggings, pyjamas (indoors, obviously!)... anything I can fit into at this stage!
Stretch marks? Belly, hips, thighs... sigh.
Sleep: Carpal tunnel wakes me & keeps me awake so many nights, so it's pretty bad & I'm exhausted a lot.
Best moment this week: will be tomorrow evening when I'll be induced & get ready to meet our baby girl!
Miss anything? So much!!! Sleeping (if I get any!), being able to get up out of bed without struggling like a turtle on its back, being able to put my shoes on when my swollen feet get better.
Movement: All the movement! A little more limited as baby girl is engaged. Kicks, punches... never thought I would say I love being kicked & punched but here we are! She loves kicking up high & punching down low. The hiccups are so cute too.
Food cravings: None that I can think of.
Gender: GIRL!
Anything making you queasy or sick: the heartburn makes me feel really nauseous at times.
Labour signs: The odd contraction here & there
Symptoms: heartburn & carpal tunnel.
Belly button in or out? OUT!
Wedding rings on or off? Off :( my fingers are a little swollen, but I'm hoping to have my ring back on not long after baby girl is born.
Happy or moody most of the time: Up and down again... I'm at the stage where I just want her here now, but I know I'll miss the pregnancy, belly & movements. I get overwhelmed with more things now but I feel crap so much of the time, so that could be why.
Looking forward to: Induction tomorrow & meeting baby girl!
