It is highly unlikely, but Baby Girl could be here any day now. As our Bradley book states, "there isn't a baby who can read a calendar..." or something like that anyhow.
As much as I am anxiously awaiting my due date (Oct. 16), I'm not expecting her to come unless she is ready. My guess is the 22nd of October...just because it's fun to guess. haha. I am praying they won't want or have to induce for any reason. And if it's past my due date I'm going to try to make it last as long as I can. I know 2 weeks is the max but if she isn't ready to come then she just needs a little more time to bake (so long as she is healthy). ;) But I'm hoping we never even have to cross that bridge.
The mail lady (who is one of the sweetest, most kind-hearted people I know) saw me for the first time in a few days on Tuesday and she said, "Oh my, you have dropped. You're getting a little shelf there." hehe. I definitely feel bigger - that's for sure.
|I feel so huge...but I know I'm still pretty small for being so far along.|
|Yep...like I said, I feel huge.|
|Definitely grew since last week!|
|10 weeks ago. So 24 weeks and 34 weeks. Crazy right!?!|
This week, baby is the size of a: Cantaloupe.
Next appointment: About a week and a half from now. Two Mondays from now.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained somewhere between 2 & 3 pounds in the past 2 weeks. Which is pretty normal I suppose.
Exercise: I can walk half as far and be twice as tired now. lol. Still doing my Bradley stuff...but not everything I should. Gotta get on that....
Maternity Clothes: All the time. Caved and bought another pair of shorts but scored a good deal so I am pleased.
Sleep: Depends on the night but definitely not as good as I used to - especially with the unending bathroom runs. :P
Food Cravings/Aversions: Nothing. Surprise right?
Movement: So often. So very often in my rib cage. lol. She is really trying to cram her way under there....
What I Miss: My energy and the ability to sleep an entire night without getting up at least once.
What I'm Loving: The movement. Even when it is uncomfortable, this is still one of the coolest things in the world.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Ultrasound!! We are measuring about 3 weeks behind which is worse than the last time so they told me I have to go check things out. I'm not overly concerned. Even the doctor thinks she is just laying oblong. But since this is the 2nd appointment in a row, it is routine. And I'm not complaining - we get to see our precious baby girl again before her arrival! Yay!
Best Moment This Week: Our shopping trip. It was nice having a girl's day with Mom and Gram. We got almost all of the stuff we need and ended the day with pedicures and dinner. It was wonderful. Plus I got to go to IKEA!! :)
Milestones: Working on those lungs and the nervous system! And she is building up fat layers so she can be an adorable chunky little mess. ;)
Goals: Pack our hospital bag...really dragging my feet with this one. And get the rest of the baby stuff put away...which means convincing Hubby to hang the shelf I got at IKEA. hehe.
