And just like that, we're 39 weeks. iPhone pics will have to do, and welcome to two of the only articles of clothing that still fit me.
Size of baby: A baby. She is fully developed and at this point is just getting chubbier. A pumpkin or watermelon if you need a comparison. Yikes!
Weight gain: A whopping 42 pounds-ish. Maybe 45. I am really hoping breast feeding makes me lost the majority of this weight.
Feeling: Pretty yucky, but that is to be expected. Anxious and excited for labor. Trying to remain calm. Been a bit nauseous, and experiencing the usual aches and pains.
Maternity Clothes: You know it. Even a lot of my maternity clothes are too small these days.
Nursery: Complete :)
Symptoms: Achy back, neck, etc. Nausea. Emotional. Difficulty getting from laying down or sitting to standing.
Labor Signs: I had my 39 week appt today and we FINALLY had some progress in the dilation and effacement (is that a word?) depts. I am 1 "good" centimeter dilated and 80% effaced. Considering I was 0 and 0 last week, the doctor was impressed. Escpecially since I haven't felt any contractions. That I can identify at least.
Perhaps all my DIY labor inducers are working?! I plan to keep them up all weekend. Fingers crossed! For the record these include walking as much as possible, drinking red raspberry leaf tea, taking evening primrose oil, and bouncing/doing other exercises on my exercise ball as much as I can stand it. We are ready for you Norah.
