Girl Named 38 Weeks

Once again, I'm a little behind - it's Thursday and I'll be 39 weeks on Saturday. Oops! Nothing has happened yet, I go to the doctor tomorrow and she'll check me again. If my cervix has softened, she will schedule me to be induced within a couple days. If it hasn't softened, I will have to wait another week and the next Friday she'll schedule me to be induced (at 40 weeks). So either way, the end is in sight! But now that it's so close I'm kind of freaking out about having another baby, and having 3 kids! I know it's too late now, but I think every mom probably has a panic moment right before she has a baby. Our lives will be changing drastically (for the better) and it will be a big adjustment for all 4 of us. 

I've been "part time" still at work, although I worked 35 hours last week (some from home though). There is so much to get done, and I'm so worried about when I'm gone! It's been nice though to have the flexibility to go home when I'm tired and work there. We spent all day Sunday getting the last minute stuff ready for Chloe - car seat, wall decal in her room, clothes washed, pump ready, bottles ready, etc. It was a lot of work! I feel better knowing everything is ready for her though.

Decal up with her name!

The Belly: Not much to say now, it's huge. Here is a picture - I was trying my best to muster a smile, but this was a particularly cranky day. ;) 

38 Weeks
Food: I have more room now, but still not a ton. No cravings.

Baby: baby-sized

Feeling: Tired, can't sleep, uncomfortable, heartburn, want wine...

Activity: Fixing my hair. I apologize to everyone, it's just too much work right now. ;)

Girl Named 37 Weeks

I'm always so far behind on these posts, again, I'm almost 38 weeks now. Anyway, it's business as usual. My birthday was Saturday, so I took a 3 hour nap then went to dinner with my awesome friends. I couldn't eat much, but it was nice to get to see everyone! I've started "part time" at work, but it's Thursday and so far I've only taken off 2 hours this week. There's so much to get done before being gone! My last dr appt was Friday, and Chloe's heart rate was really high for a while, and my blood pressure was a little high, but no change other than that. I go back tomorrow, so we'll see what she says. I'm so ready to have her! A friend that was due 3 days after me, just had her baby today, and I'm so jealous! (Happy for her, but still jealous!) Everyone else has these babies that come on their own, a couple weeks early. I have babies that are so stubborn they have to be forced out. Ugh. 

The Belly: It's huge. Most of my shirts are too short, it takes an act of God to turn over in bed at night, I don't fit in booths at restaurants...

Food: I've regained a little of my appetite (I'd lost two pounds last week at my appt because I couldn't eat!) so I can eat more than a couple bites of food. Not a lot more, but a little more. Everything gives me heartburn though. 

Baby: She's officially the size of a swiss chard (okaaaay...) but I think it's safe to say she's the size of a baby now.

Feeling: Exhausted still. I just want to sleep. All. The. Time. I'm pretty comfortable as long as I'm not sitting, standing, or laying. I have a constant headache that I can't get rid of. Seriously, the only thing getting me through is the anticipation of kissing her baby head. I know it sounds weird, but for some reason I'm so excited to kiss her head! 

Activity: Getting out of bed.

Girl Named 36 Weeks

So I'm a little late on this one, as I'm almost 37 weeks...but it's been a rough week! Tuesday I was feeling really bad, I thought I had a bug. I stayed home and could barely move! I was exhausted, achy, couldn't eat, it was horrible. I went to bed at 7:30 that night and slept for 12 hours. I felt a little better Wednesday, and today I'm better. I saw my doc and she said that with 2 kids to take care of, being older than I was last time I was pregnant, and working full time, my body is probably just getting tired. I go back tomorrow, but she said she's probably going to recommend I start working part time next week, and do that for the next 2 weeks, then hopefully deliver at 39 weeks. We will see what happens! I can't believe it's so close, I can't wait to kiss her little baby head! 

The Belly: It's huge. I had a lady today point at my belly and say "Good luck with that". I almost punched her and said "good luck with that".

Food: I didn't eat anything except yogurt and applesauce for two days this week. Today I ate half a salad and was so miserable afterwards. I don't have ANY room for food. I can't wait to eat again!

Baby: She's the size of a crenshaw melon, whatever that is. It's huge.

Feeling: I think you can probably guess...horrible. If I could sleep longer than an hour at a time, I think I would feel better.

Activity: I walked across a parking lot today and thought I was going to no.

Girl Named 35 Weeks

We're getting there! I can't believe my due date is a month away! We are ready for her, and I'm definitely ready to be done being pregnant! We had a big Superbowl party on Sunday, and I'm just now recovering from it. It seems like every little task is now a huge undertaking!  

The Belly: Getting bigger every day. My selection of shirts is dwindling.

Food: I still don't have much room, but I feel like she's dropped a little bit because I have a little more room than I did last week. No cravings really, in the past week. 

Baby: She's the size of a honeydew melon!

Feeling: Exhausted, like I could sleep a day straight and still be tired. Sore, huge, no energy, heartburn...the usual.

Activity: Picking stuff up off the floor. 

On another note, you may have noticed my blog has changed looks (I designed my new logo!), I have a new Facebook page ( please "like" it if you haven't already,  and I'm now a part of Mom Hot Spot! There is a link to the right you can click on and it will automatically vote for my blog, which increases my rank in their blogging community.
