How far along? 37 Weeks, 2 Days
Maternity clothes? Yes. And a bathrobe.
Sleep: It's more like I take a bunch of naps. I'll take what I can get.
Best moment this week? Getting to see our little boy TWICE. E wasn't moving around a lot and his heart rate was really low at our appointment last week, so they did an ultrasound to make sure he was responding to different things. He passed every part of the "test", except for the breathing part (which is normal for boys his age). Please pray that his lungs develop QUICKLY and that he won't have any issues with breathing when he's born. :) In addition to the first screening, we are participating in a study at UAMS where they check for contractions in the last 4 weeks of pregnancy. As an added bonus, they do a free 4D ultrasound every week! Oh and we get paid, too!
Miss Anything? Comfort. And not feeling antsy... I'm not nervous about being a mom, but I'm so anxious/excited for his arrival!!! I know that once he gets here, life is going to change COMPLETELY. But it will be nice to not play the waiting game anymore.
Movement: As I said- it wasn't really happening on Monday, but then he got back to normal. He's very squirmy!
Food cravings: Nothing in particular.
Aversions: Lunch meat is nasty.
Showing? Ohhhh yes.
Labor Signs? Still at a 1. Boooooo. I have another appointment this afternoon. Hopefully we've progressed some! I've been much more active this week. We'll see if it did anything!
Belly Button- in or out? In, and super stretched out.
Rings- on or off? Off.
Happy or Moody? Happy and excited.
Looking forward to: Not gonna lie- I am going to do everything I can to make this child come this week. My dad and sister are leaving for England next week, and they'll be there past E's due date. I would love for them to be here for his birth. And no, I can't keep E in my belly past my due date, because my BFF is getting married the first weekend of August!
