|40 weeks 4 days -- this picture will make me feel accomplished in a few months...! Haha!|
Baby's size: Just about 8 lbs and could be over 20" long -- what?! Baby 2 get out!!!
Sleep: Scarlett has been sleeping well, so that helps. I'm just so dang uncomfortable! Every time I roll over, my hips sound like what I would imagine a snake's jaw does when unhinging...it hurts!!!
Maternity clothes: I prefer sweatpants.
Food cravings: Everything in moderation...if I eat too much I can't breathe!
Food aversions: Nothing, really, just cooked broccoli...anything cold is consumable!
Symptoms I have: Pain everywhere, especially my sciatic nerve!!! Ouch x 100! ...Still I MUST remember this misery when I am sleep-deprived!
Doctor's appointment: My ultrasound last Tuesday showed a happy (chunky!) baby that is very active and healthy. Couldn't ask for more...except for maybe a baby outside of my body!!!
Movement: Lots of BIG movements -- they just happen less often! (Yup, same.) Baby 2 is folded right in half -- doesn't look comfy!
Belly button: Flat and weird. (Also still the same. I don't remember such a wonky belly button the first time around!)
What I'm looking forward to: Meeting baby 2! Seeing her face in the ultrasound made it so real; it's almost strange that she's not here yet because she's really a part of our family! Scarlett goes around saying, "I love my sister!" I'm pretty sure she says it because I give her positive reinforcement, but I'll take it!
What I miss: Being un-pregnant! I mean, really, being a week overdue is just wrong! I feel like my life is on hold until she comes because everyday I think is the day. I really am trying to enjoy and appreciate the quiet before the storm, but I'm getting impatient!!!
