How far along? 37 weeks
Weight gain/loss: 145 lbs. Up 3 lbs. from last week for a total gain of 27 lbs. so far.
Feeling: Contractiony - if that were an adjective. They're not quite painful yet, but are certainly uncomfortable. And they're happening quite often. Insomnia has also been a problem as of late.
Maternity clothes? My comfortable cotton nighties now barely make it past my belly. I've had to pair them with too-tight gym shorts. If I weren't ready to pop I'd probably invest in some maternity pajamas ;)
Sleep: Trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. Getting up to pee every hour or so doesn't help.
Food cravings: Fried mushrooms. I wanted them so badly all last week I finally broke out the deep fryer on Friday night to satisfy my craving.
Movement? I'm actually not feeling much right now, and haven't for a few days. When I do? They're just small rolls/movements as opposed to kicks and punches. She is running out of space for sure.
What I miss? Being able to lift/maneuver Carina. Her new favorite thing to do is climb on the chairs and table and I end up picking her up and putting her down over and over again and I'm just so exhausted. I can't even keep her on my lap for timeout because I can't control her thrashing.
Best moment this week: Our friends sent us a Rock n' Play Sleeper for Aurelia! I had mentioned a couple weeks ago how badly I wanted one. Well, we put it together and Carina put her baby doll in it and started rocking her. Yep, there were tears.
What I'm looking forward to: Finishing getting ready for her arrival. Just a few more things to purchase; our double stroller should arrive in a few days...eeee!
Next Appointment: Thursday, September 6th at 37.5 weeks.
Milestones: I am now technically term. Yikes!
For comparison's sake, here I am at 37 weeks with Carina. I'm looking about the same, I think.
