Today is - Monday July 29th, 2013
How far along - 37 weeks - Full Term!
Baby is - A girl!
Total weight gain - I have no idea now. I haven't been weighed in weeks. It's probably best I don't know!
Baby is the size of - A leek.
Whats going on with baby - Emilie is now considered full term and ready to come out and meet the world. Her lungs are mature enough for her to be able to breath on her own.
What going on with Mummy - I am so ready to meet my baby girl. I have a lot of signs that labor isn't too far away! Yesterday I was starting to wonder if I was actually going to have her then. It's weird knowing that this could be my last 'pregnancy update' or I could have three more.. I'm hoping she comes sooner rather than later :)
Maternity clothing - I officially only have one pair of jeans that fit me now. I don't see the point in buying anymore for what could be just a matter of days. I save my one pair of jeans for when I have to go out. If I'm in the house then I'm in sweats or PJ bottoms.. It's the one time I can get away with it!
Sleep - Rolling over in bed hurts. If I find a comfy position then I'm out for the count. Yesterday I ended up having a nap about 10.30am.. I was just so tired that I couldn't keep my eyes open.
Movement - Her movements have definitely slowed down. At my midwife appointment last week it was confirmed that she has now finally moved into the right position and her head is engaged.
Food Cravings/Aversions - My appetite is zero. I have to force myself to eat anything and with my eating struggles, that is tough.
- Braxton Hicks.
- Pelvic pain
How is this pregnancy different from the last -
With James, I had no signs of labor up until I went into labor and six hours later he was born. I don't know if maybe this time I am noticing things because I kind of know what to expect.
Best moments this week -
- Knowing that I could meet my baby girl any time now.
