How far along? 35 Weeks & 6 days
Size of Baby: Baby girl measured a nice 4 lbs and 6 oz at our last ultrasound a month ago so I'm sure she's above the average 5.25 pounds my app says. (and 18 inches long!)
Total weight gain/loss: up 2 pounds from last month's check-in (about 140! yikes) but with this new fluid retention and swelling I'm not surprised
Symptoms: Everything blood sugar wise is right on track! BUT I can no longer walk, move or stand for more then 5-10 minutes. My leg swelling and pitting edema is so bad that sleep is impossible and at work my feet must be propped at all times. I'm squeezing in half days at this point and trying not to cry or vomit with everyday activities- been such a great pregnancy thus far so I guess SOMETHING had to happen...
Anything making you queasy or sick: This leg and nerve pain - makes me light headed...reealllly rethinking that natural birth/no epidural situation at this point!
Have you started to show yet: Oh fo' sho'
Gender prediction: Girl! Miss Anderson Greer Otey (Andi)
Nursery: Waiting on a gorgeous PB kids pink and green rug to come in next week! Slowly making progress but making her little nook in our room where she'll be for a while is fun too!
Workouts: Well since I can't move...like at all :(
Labor Signs: Braxton hicks plus crampy round ligament pain? Yes- at least 6-7 times a day
Belly Button in or out? flat
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and excited but ready now...I've reached that point they all told me about - the point where your like ok I'm ready to be able to walk around again haha Can't wait to meet her so soon!!
Best Moment this week: Still getting the sweetest gifts for little Miss A is so fun! Also, we have an appointment today with my OB and then an appointment with the high risk doctor on Monday with an ultrasound to check her progress and weight etc.
- Leaving for our bay house tomorrow for Easter weekend will be fabulous too. Feet propped and not able to move by the water is better than at home right?
