40 Week Bumpdate!

How far along?  40 weeks and a day

Total weight gain/measurements: I haven’t gained any weight between my two appointments but I feel like my stomach has gotten bigger.

Maternity clothes: Yeah I can’t fit into anything anymore, this week has been challenging to say the least

Stretch marks: The top of my stomach has been invaded by stretch marks because she has literally ran out of room and I’m running out of patience.

Sleep: At night it’s kind of getting better and I have been taking advantage of some down time and napping more.

Best moment this week: Tuesday when my feet resembled normal looking feet and not the elephant man.

Miss anything? Just my old body and being able to fit in places. I feel like a whack everything with my belly because I’m not used to having something so large in front of me.

Movement: It’s very seldom that she moves for more than a few seconds, it’s kind of like she adjusts herself and goes back to sleep. Let’s hope she sleeps this much when she comes out.

Food cravings: Cheese fries all day every day, avocados, and bananas which is weird because they make me terribly sick.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Bananas but they always have I usually stay away from them but for some reason I wanted one this week and I immediately regretted it so now I know not to give into that craving.

Gender: A very stubborn girl

Labor signs: I was but really now I don’t feel like it’s coming at all, I’m kind of getting discouraged at this point and I feel like I’m failing.

Symptoms: Still indigestion and a lot of nausea again.

Belly button in or out? Out

Wedding rings on or off? I couldn’t get it off until I got in the shower and then it stayed off. I feel lost without it and I have nothing to play with throughout the day.

Happy or moody most of the time: Moody I really feel down after the doctor told us she wasn’t coming anytime soon the day before our due date.

Looking forward to: Just having her and putting her in her cute outfits. Alex cannot wait to watch his first Blackhawks game with her!
