I made it to 41 weeks but just barely (stay tuned).
I wrote this Friday morning, January 4th 2013, while having contractions.
Total weight gain: 34 lbs. One pound lower than I guessed at the beginning of pregnancy.
Maternity clothes? Anything that fits. I have about three go to outfits.
Stretch marks? Nothing. I think I'll make it without any.
Sleep: Not so great.
Best moment this week: Eating Pho with John and my mom and watching John and his cousins play/swim in the rain.
Miss anything? I am content right now.
Food cravings: Pasta was a favorite this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Symptoms: Full size belly!
Movement: Yes. It is so fun to watch her move my belly.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Labor, birthing and meeting our baby!
Labor signs: As of today, I am having contractions that are very uncomfortable.
Belly button in or out? Almost flat.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Baby’s fruit size: Let's just call her newborn size now.
Yesterday, January 3rd, we had a non-stress test and I had a membrane sweep to try to get things moving along.
I was 2 cm, 70 percent effaced and -1 station.
The sweep was uncomfortable yet manageable.
