38 Weeks!

How big is the baby this week: Emersyn is the size of a pumpkin!

Due Date: May 8, 2012, but I'm hoping she comes a little early:)

Weight Gain: Up 1 lbs this week. Running total: 26 lbs. 

Symptoms: The belly is BIG- I get a lot of "wow"s.  Lovely Braxton Hicks contractions, weird nerve pains in my hips, strange dreams, swollen feet, heartburn and backaches.  Yup, I'm definitely pregnant.

Cravings: Milk and sweets. 

Aversions: Towards the end of the day I'm not usually as hungry, which manifests itself into nothing sounds good.

Waking up to use the bathroom, or to adjust myself into more of a sitting position if I start to slide.  Other than that, pretty ok for sleeping on the couch

I am loving: That our house is so clean (Gus is staying with my in laws while we try to sell our house).

I miss: Sleeping in my bed. Not hurting.  Red wine.

I am looking forward to: Dr appointment tomorrow to see if we have any progress.

I'm spazzing about: Just really wanting to know when she'll arrive!

Best thing about this week: Friday was my last day at work, I am now on leave until my vacation and personal days run out (in June) then I'm officially a stay at home mama!

Milestones: Lost my mucus plug on Sunday.

Movement: She still moves quite a bit, seems to really love that sore spot on the top of my belly (ouch).

It's a...: Girl!!! Emersyn Grace:)


  1. I bet you've made progress!!! Can't wait to hear!!

  2. I had my doc appt today- nothing more than I was before (1cm) :( I hope you have more luck tomorrow than I did!

  3. Almost there! Can't wait to see her!
