Maternity clothes? I mostly just wear leggings and tank tops and flip flops. But when I have to look nice I do have two dresses that still fit and are comfortable.
Sleep: It got pretty bad right after my last update. Jack going through sleep regression certainly helped. I started drinking some raspberry tea right before bed and Jack is doing better so it’s better. I sleep for about 3 hours, pee, 3 hours, pee, and then hope Jack gives me at least 2 more hours.
Best moment: I had a day to myself! My mom watched Jack. I got my hair and nails done, then walked a couple stores by myself. I didn’t have to share my donut! And then I missed my boy so I went home and we had dinner together 🙂
Miss Anything?: a drank. just a couple more weeks!
Movement: yes. It actually slowed down pretty drastically. Scared me enough to tell the doctor, but she’s not worried.
Food cravings: I have no appetite most of the time. But when I do decide I want something I can only think of that.
Anything making you queasy or sick: coffee and red meat.
Gender: Benjamin Stark … the middle name will probably be a bedside decision
Symptoms: A month ago I didn’t expect to be updating you at 38 weeks to be honest. If you’ll remember, Ben was a big boy sitting right on my cervix, I had incredibly bad sciatic nerve pain, two uti’s, I got the flu twice, I was losing weight, I was getting headaches and nauseated everyday. The doctors told me at 32 weeks we’d discuss induction at 37 weeks unless things got better. I told my mommy and me friends that I basically felt like she was telling me for sure I’d be induced at 37 weeks. Things might get better to make it ok to wait, but with his size that probably meant c section.
The doctor and I both are convinced my blood pressure is going to start rising because of everything going on. It’s just my history. But both of the last two weeks we’ve discovered everything is fine. No more uti’s, no proteins, no flu in 3 weeks, blood pressure is literally perfect 120/80. However, I feel like crap. I’m still getting headaches and nauseated almost everyday. I’m uncomfortable and hot 90% of the time. And I get contractions pretty regularly, but not enough to go to the hospital. Bending over literally takes my breath away and with a toddler I bend over ALOT.
So today actually, we go in to check it all again and see if my cervix is favorable. Please pray it is so we can meet our boy soon 🙂
Belly Button in or out? in, and not coming out
Wedding rings on or off? on and comfortable
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to? giving birth and holding my boy
