38 Weeks: Baby 2.0


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

Due Date: May 8, 2014, but we have an end in site of April 30!

Weight Gain: Up 1 lb this week. Running total: 22 lbs. 

Symptoms: I've had a few episodes of regular, painful Braxton Hicks that have made me question if it's baby time, but nope, just baby C making his presence known.  I haven't had any more vasovagal episodes, but I do still have regular heartburn and soreness.  Also, at my 37 week apt I was 3 cm dilated, and 50% effaced.  Still the same yesterday.

Cravings: Sushi.  Duh.

Aversions: Nothing really stands out.

Sleep: 
Waking up more frequently at night to use the bathroom- I think he's just very low.

I am loving: That we have an end in site, though I'm nervous (again) for an induction.

I miss: The ease of not having a belly in the way of things.

I am looking forward to: Next Wednesday!


I'm spazzing about: Life with a toddler and a newborn.  I know we'll figure it out, but I'm definitely nervous.

Best thing about this week: Getting a lot done around the house and in the yard.

Milestones: Less than one week until Caleb's arrival!


Movement: Lots and lots of movement!

It's a...: Boy!

  2. The offering of free baby stuff proves an effective form of marketing for companies manufacturing baby freebies.
