How far along: 39 weeks.
Total weight gain: Up 30 pounds. At one point it was up 32 pounds, but last night when I weighed myself I was back down two pounds.
Maternity clothes: Yes. Not many of those even fit me anymore. My belly is always hanging out.
Stretch marks: They are all over my hips and butt even onto my upper legs.
Sleep: I was incredibly queasy last weekend and discovered that Dramamine really makes me sleep well. So I sleep crappy the nights I don't take it and pretty good the nights I do.
Best moment of this week: Well the week is only half over so hopefully having a baby will be the best moment. If not, probably just chilling with Destructo. I have been staying close to home just in case I go into labor. With Destructo being malpositioned and this being my second baby, I truly have no idea what labor will be like since Kai's was so far from normal. I don't want to get too far away and have labor start fast and furious when I am out with Kai. Plus the weather has been gorgeous so we have been going for lots of walks so he can ride his bike. And by walks, I mean waddles in my case.
Miss anything: Knowing with a fairly good degree of certainty I am not going into labor when I lay down to go to sleep at night. I hate the uncertainty of everything. Plus the having to line up who is coming to take care of Destructo each and every night sucks. So I guess I miss the relative certainty that is life.
Movement: Quieter than normal especially today. He has barely moved today. He was pretty active last night so apparently he wore himself out.
Food cravings: Cherry slushes from Sonic. My hubby brought me one home the other night and I have had to have one each day since. Pure sugar I am sure, but so delicious.
Have you started to show yet: I am huge. End of story. In fact, maybe I will even include a picture.
|Yep looks like a watermelon to me|
Gender: Baby boy who will probably never have a name other than knowing it will be a Biblical name.
Labor signs: Tons of them. I was 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced at my appointment on Wednesday. I had timeable contractions Thursday evening for two hours, but then they went away. I have had other gross labor signs we won't blog about. And tons of contractions and cramping, but nothing regular as of yet.
Belly button in or out: Out yuck. I actually don't think it can get any further out. Mr. Destructo is fascinated with poking it and it makes me irate.
Wedding rings on or off: Off. My hands and feet are both quite swollen and now even my face and upper arms is a bit swollen.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy but anxious. I want life to settle into a routine again. Plus I am tired of uncertainty. I get quite angry/moody when I am really having contractions and uncomfortable but luckily then it passes and life moves on. I will still take this a thousand times over compared to Destructo's birth because I am making progress with not a ton of discomfort. I was in hard active labor for days just to get to a 3 with Destructo and I am sitting at a 3 (and hopefully even more) with just minor annoyances. I hope this continues.
