My baby's due date was within a few days of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West baby's, which tells me I could go at any time! I'm guessing the name will be Kay or something that starts with a Key-sound or maybe Kandice...
|Me at 34 weeks at my baby shower!|
Maternity clothes? Still wearing a mix, but probably more non-maternity clothes than maternity. However, I think I’m starting to get too big for some of my tees, but I should have enough stuff that fits without having to buy any more maternity clothes. Maxi dresses are awesome :)
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Sleeping hard, and I’m still tired. I think there were a few nights this week where I didn’t wake up at all in the night, but maybe I was just so out of it that I didn’t remember.
Gestational diabetes update: I feel like my bloodsugar is kinda all over the place, it will sometimes drop 50 points in an hour when all I’m doing is sitting on the couch. But overall my numbers have been in range and the high readings are only slightly high.
Best moment this week: My baby shower was awesome, more to come on this soon!
Miss Anything? I miss a lot of things (not having to worry about bloodsugar, drinking, having a waist, having more energy, etc.) but honestly overall I don’t mind being pregnant. Other than the diabetes, I think I’ve had it pretty easy.
Movement: A lot of movement, mostly on my right side or at the top of my stomach, but I’ve felt some different types of movements lately in spots I don’t normally feel it. I always wonder what is going on in there.
Food cravings: I haven’t really craved anything too crazy…. Ice cream (hold the pickles) and chocolate but I always like that!
Have you started to show yet: There’s no denying I’m pregnant now, but I kinda want to just because it would be funny.
Gender prediction: twice confirmed that he’s a boy, and I have a lot of little boys clothes after my shower so he better be!
Labor Signs: Not yet
Belly Button in or out? Flat or out, kinda in between. But I think it’s staying the same now.
Wedding rings on or off? On, we’ve had a very cool and rainy start to summer, which is a bummer but it could be a blessing in disguise because I haven’t really had much swelling. But I'm starting to notice a little swelling in my feet after a long day.
Symptoms: My leg cramps at night have gotten a lot more mild, and I’m not even taking tums. Towards evening time, I feel really beat – just tired and a little sore all over. I hate bending over and I feel a lot of pressure in my face when I do, even for a few seconds.
The last few days I've been noticing a pinching/cramping feeling when I'm walking. It's not a strong feeling, but definitely different than I've experienced before.
Looking forward to: I'm 36 weeks on Wednesday, so I'm in the final stretch!!! It's crazy, but I can't wait to meet the little guy! Until then I want to try to take it easy and prepare for the big day and bring our baby boy home.
To do: Pack my hospital bag... could be any time now! I'm also doing a consult with a pediatrician.
