What the heck is a winter melon? Is it fruit or veggie? Does it actually grow in the winter?
How far along: 37 weeks.
Total weight gain: Up 27 pounds. C25K here I come after this baby gets here.
Maternity clothes: Yes all of them. But most don't fit.
Stretch marks: They are all over my hips and butt. Joy. My belly is still spared. Only a few more days to go.
Sleep: I wake up every hour or at best two hours. If it isn't to pee, it is because my hips and back get so achy I have to walk around. And that is with Unisom.
Best moment of this week: My mom coming over all day on Saturday to help me get some cleaning/decluttering/organizing done. It is so nice to have a more organized than cluttered house.
Miss anything: Sleeping more than a two hour stretch, being able to easily pick Kai up, not aching, lunch meat.
Movement: Still fairly active.
Food cravings: Everything this week. I am so very hungry. I have been eating like crazy which doesn't help my acid reflux up.
Have you started to show yet: Just all the showing in the world.
Gender: Baby boy who will probably never have a name.
Labor signs: Lots of cramping. And other gross things I won't mention to the general public. But all these things happened in the week or so before Destructo was born.
Belly button in or out: Out yuck. I actually don't think it can get any further out.
Wedding rings on or off: Off. My hands are completely swollen and it makes dressing my kiddo hard.
Happy or moody most of the time: I swing wildly between all the emotions in the world. I am happy that this pregnancy is coming to an end, sad that I will have to divide my attention between newbie and Destructo, dreadful of the sleep deprivation that is to come, scared that I am going to have a labor like I had with Destructo again, dreadful about the pain of beginning breastfeeding again, excited to meet the baby and introduce him to Kai. It just goes on and on.
