And one more thing before I start my weekly update- my final thing I've bought for Evan came in the mail today! This Etsy seller is in Canada, so it's taken a little extra time to get here. I had a flower headband custom made (this would be the third thing I've bought from her!) and I'm thrilled with how it turned out!
How sweet are those little red flowers? I absolutely can not wait to put this outfit on her.
She also has a white eyelet blouse that I'll pair with jeans and the red shoes and headband too. Come on baby girl, you've got to many cute outfits sitting in your closet to just be hanging out naked in my tummy!
(excuse the naked boy with the deer-in-the-headlights look. He jumped in at the last minute and I was too tired to take another one.)
How Far Along: 38 weeks- 12 days till my due date and I believe it. I almost feel silly filling this thing out this week, all I've got to say is OH. THE PAIN.
Size of baby: the length of a leek. Again, not sure what this is. Approximate length is 19 1/2 inches and weight is 6.8 lbs.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: As of last Wednesday I'm up 34 lbs. And it's just going to get worse because I've totally let myself go when it comes to sweets. Sunday night after my delicious dinner of a hot dog I had a brownie, a piece of cake, and the end of a can of icing. Yep. I figure what's done is done, I'm just gonna live it up while I'm still forced to be pregnant.
Maternity Clothes: I've counted 5 shirts that fit me now. I told everyone Sunday that if I'm still pregnant next Sunday, I'm showing up in the same outfit because it's the only church-decent shirt I've got thats long enough.
Gender: I am getting very ready to meet my little girl. Just wanna see what that little face that's been brewing in there looks like!
Movement: I had a few more instances of the gymnastics this week than I thought would be physically possible at this point. I hope she's still head down.
Sleep: The last few nights have been awful. Not only do I have the same ole same ole pains, but it's like I forgot how to lay down. No matter what I do I can't get comfortable, I don't remember how I used to lay to take the weight off my belly. It's like this giant bowling ball hanging off my middle and no matter how I turn it is just dead weight.
What I miss: Not being in pain all the time.
Cravings: Peach tea. Oooo, and chocolate.
Symptoms: Pain pain pain. Today when I was out in the rain dealing with the basket I used in shopping, I wanted to run to put it up and get in the car, but I couldn't. Just couldn't. All I could do was waddle as quick as my little legs would let me. Lots of pressure. Lots of Braxton Hicks. Lots of weird dreams (it's the only way I know I've actually gotten sleep these days!)
Best Moment this week: Best? I don't know. There were a lot of nice moments, but best is hard to say.
