38 Weeks

Goodness! I have been a major slacker when it comes to my blog! I have been extremely busy with Dr. appointments and just getting everything prepared for my little man! My due date is 11 days away! I had a Drs appointment already this week and she checked me and nothings going on. Today I have tried dancing, walking, bouncing on my bed since I dont have an exercise ball. No pains still. But Im praying that at any moment things will start happening! My next appointment is April 4th so I will let you guys know if anything changes at my 40 week appointment. FINGERs CROSSED!!! OH! My feet! They are so swollen! I have to constantly put them up, even when I am sleeping. They are swollen to the point that I am in pain. Ive been drinking tons of water and propping them up. My Dr suggested that I get in a pool 2 hours everyday...but I have no pool to get in so thats out. As far as exercising I have been doing Zumba on the Kinect at home and walking for an hour then putting my feet up then walking another hour. I do this at least 2 times a day sometimes 3.

How far along? 38 weeks and 4 days

Total weight gain/loss: about 56 lbs! I feel HUGE!

Maternity clothes? I dont know how its possible but Ive almost outgrown all of my maternity clothes these last couple of weeks. Yoga pants, big tshirts, and flip flops!

Stretch marks? Yes. :( All along my sides and thighs. This week I just noticed them coming up the front of my stomach.

Best moment this week: His crib finally arrived! So now all I need to do is set that up!

Miss anything: I miss being comfortable,sleep, being skinny, and having an actual wardrobe!

Movement: Tons of movment! Big rolls, limbss pushing out, and hiccups everyday!

Food cravings: ANYTHING lemon! Lucky Charms. Waffles with pb&j on them.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!

Have you started to show yet: Ha! Im more than showing at this point! My belly button is even making appearances now!

Gender: BOY!!!!

Labor Signs: No signs of labor really.He is head down. My cervix is high and not dilated, BUT I am thinning!

Belly Button in or out? Half in half out.

Happy or Moody most of the time: I think I am a bit of everything at this point. Happy, sad, anxious, nervous, excited, scared! EVERYTHING!

Looking forward to: Having some labor pains and meeting my baby boy!

34 Weeks

Hello my lovely followers!
Its been FOREVER since I gave you guys an update on my pregnancy! My due date is almost here so I decided to update! My computer has been broken for the longest and I finally got it fixed! Now I can keep up with my weekly updates! As you guys probably see in my title I am 34 weeks pregnant! My pre-pregnancy weight was 135..My weight this week is 182.4lbs! Big mama! I know!!! That means Ive gained a total of 47.4lbs! My Dr. says its normal to gain around 50lbs with your first baby! I am definitely wearing maternity clothes now! I am almost outgrowing all of the maternity clothes that I have! Stretch lovely they are! I have stretch marks all along my hips,thighs, and breast. In a way I find them beautiful! I look at it as I am earning my mommy stripes! Another lovely thing that comes with pregnancy is no sleep! I have barely been sleeping! Last night I went to sleep at 10pm, woke up at 2:30, woke up again at 3:45 and I have been up ever since! Not only can I not sleep, but trying to find a comfortable position to sleep in is a workout! This week my Dr appointment was really awesome! It made my week! She told me my little one is healthy and big enough to come at any day now! He's also head down! I was very shocked to find that he is already so low and head down because I feel him moving so much all over the place! I figured his entire body was moving around not just his bottom portion! CRAVINGS!!! I want any and everything lemon! Italian Ice is my favorite! Lucky Charms and waffles with peanut butter and jelly have definitely made it onto my cravings list as well!In case you guys still haven't figured out yet, I am having a BOY!!!! I wont say his name yet, but we do have one picked out!

Well, That's pretty much it for this week! Today is my baby shower! Ill be sure to make a post about that and share some pictures! I am so excited! Hope you all have an amazing week!!!
