How far along? 38 Weeks
Total weight gain: 25lbs. I had weighed myself the other evening (never again) and thought I had gained another 5 up from that, but it's seems not. Thank goodness!
Maternity clothes? Nope. I'm refusing to buy anything new now.
Stretch marks? Yes. Lots. But, they for the most part they are still silvery and not very angry looking. I got weirdly excited over them the other day and called them my tiger stripes. I know some people find them quite ugly, but I actually really like them.
Best moment this week: Feeling how much this little dude is moving. He likes to stick his bum in the air and push his head down onto my cervix at the same time. Probably not the most comfortable thing I've even felt, but it gives me a good idea of how big he is.
Miss anything? Being able to pee? I feel like I need to go all the time, but when I do, there's nothing. That's frustrating.
Food cravings: Nope. I've just been eating too much.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just the usual cat or dog poop.
Labour signs: Lightening crotch! So much lightening crotch! I really don't think that classes as a labour sign though. I've had a few twinges here and there, but nothing I can say that made me think, oh wait, this could be it.
Symptoms: Tiredness. That's really the only thing I can think of right now.
Belly button in or out? Out!
Engagement ring on or off? Off.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy for the most part. I can be snappy though. I think I'm just getting anxious now.Looking forward to: Him being here!! We're getting so impatient!
