How far along? 41 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Down almost 2lb from last week
Maternity clothes? Of course! 🙂 And very few of those cover the belly these days.
Stretch marks? Same ones on my belly from last week. I don’t think there are any new ones. The marks themselves don’t bother me – it’s the itching that has come up in the past week that I could do without.
Sleep: Not too well. I wake up a lot from hip pain and need to switch sides. I have started taking daily naps for an hour or two each afternoon.
Best moment this week: This week was the first time Trent had been with me to an OB appointment since the ultrasound at 19wks. It was nice having him along and both getting a chance to listen to the Baby’s heartbeat. Trent later commented to me how cool that was to hear it again.
Movement: Lots of stretching and hiccuping still. Of course, the Baby initially played possum when we started the nonstress test on Tuesday and needed him to move!
Food cravings: None in particular.
Labor Signs: Plenty of Braxton Hicks.
Belly Button in or out? Flat.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting our little guy soon! One way or another, he’ll be here in the next 7 days. 🙂
Milestones: Watching our due date come and go. LOL
Energy Level: Lower than past weeks. Maybe it’s a prelabor sign? Maybe it’s just me settling into a relaxed routine now that I’m on maternity leave?
