Full Term and Feeling Big!

unnamed (2)unnamed

I can’t tell you how happy I am that so many of my original clothes in my closet still worked during my whole pregnancy.  Obviously, I had to pick up a few pairs of pregnancy pants but that’s really all I bought.  I knew I didn’t want to spend a fortune on maternity clothes and I’m glad I didn’t have to.  Yay to stretchy dresses and loose fitting blouses and shirts. =)

Pregnancy Update:

How far along? 37 Weeks  (I’m actually 38 weeks now as I’ve been doing these updates a week in advance)  I’m definitely feeling like I’m ready to pop!

Baby is the size of a:  Winter Melon!

Total weight gain: 23 lbs

Baby is a:  Girl!

Stretch marks? Yup, two little lines underneath the belly.  I’m cool with it though. =)

Sleep:  Sleep really sucks at the moment.  The heat + the big belly = no sleep.  Plus, for some reason, I can’t seem to fall asleep until 2 or 3 am in the morning and then wake up at around 11am only to take another long nap at around 4pm.  Needless to say, my sleep schedule is a bit bonkers at the moment.

Best moment this week: I know this sounds really simple but I was craving cinnamon buns one day and my Dad drove me to get them.  It’s not exactly a place that’s nearby.  It was actually out of the way for him but it really meant a lot to me that he offered to drive me to wherever I wanted to go on his last day off from his holidays.  I’m currently not driving myself around anymore as I feel like its a bit dangerous to especially when I get those braxton hicks here and there now.

Worst moment of the week:  I’d have to say my lack of sleep.  It’s been really hard to fall asleep at night and really hard to find a good position to sleep in.  I’ve been tossing and turning a lot and it’s just not a comfortable situation.  I also noticed that I’ve been more moody lately due to my lack of sleep.  I get annoyed so easily and if I get angry, I’m like the female version of the hulk.  yikes!  My poor hubby and my mom have seen that side of me this week….hopefully I’ll feel more like myself again soon.

Have you told family and friends:  Yes!

Miss Anything?  Sashimi, drinks, being able to walk up a flight of stairs without gasping for air when I reach the top.

Movement:  Yup!  She likes to push her head up on the top of my belly especially when I eat ice cream.   It’s true what sugar does to kids…I think. 😉

Food Cravings:  Popsicles, blueberries and a lot of milk!  I’ve been drinking milk like its water.  Perhaps it could have something to do with the hot weather we’ve had.  A cold glass of milk feels so good on a hot day.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope.

Have you started to show yet?  Totally!  =)  Feeling big!

Belly Button in or out?  It’s definitely out now… especially after a big meal =)

Wedding rings on or off?  Off!  I finally took the time to put it in the safety deposit box. =)  I kept telling my hubby that I’m single again whenever we go out.  Right…like I’m such a great catch right now…pregnant and all. lol.

Happy or Moody most of the time: I’d have to say I’ve been pretty moody this week.  I now realize how much my sleep affects my mood.

Looking forward to:  Getting that hospital bag ready to go (I know, I’ve been procrastinating) and really just to try to relax as much as possible before her arrival.
