Baby Update #9

This is my last update before Scott is here!!! Can I get an applause for actually keeping up with these updates this pregnancy? 

How far along: 38 weeks, measuring 39 weeks

Baby Bump: You better believe it. And that bump has spread to my rear end and thighs. Weird, because I thought a baby grew in my belly? 🙂

Maternity Clothes: Absolutely.

Total Weight Gain: 28 lbs.

Cravings: Really really really cold milk and ice. Those are separate cravings. Don’t you dare give me a glass of milk with ice in it. That’s disgusting. I think this hot weather is why I just want something cold in my mouth. And I would really love a cheeseburger from Mugshots before Scott is born, but I don’t see that happening.

Food that nearly makes me vomit when I think about it: Anything that may cause indigestion…which is basically everything.

Symptoms: Oh goodness…indigestion, swelling feet, lower ab pressure (he’s VERY head down), extreme fatigue, not sleeping AT ALL, and a HORRIBLE, stinging, constant pain in my upper right rib cage that wraps around to my back.

Sleep: Don’t even mention this word around me. It doesn’t happen.

Movement: Some very strong nudges from his limbs. Not a lot of kicking going on. HE’S OUT OF ROOM!!!

Gender: It’s a boy! Scott is his name.

Belly button in or out: Half and half. That’s gross to me. I don’t know why.

What I miss: SLEEP and getting through the day with enough energy to play with Lily.

Best Moment: I called Brent on my way home from the doc yesterday and told him I was headed to the lab to pick up an orange pee jug. Totally kidding. But his reaction was GREAT. “What? Why? Again? I mean, you are far enough along, why can’t they just go ahead and get him out?” If you need a refresher…when I was pregnant with Lily I had to keep all my urine in a huge orange jug for 24 hours three different times. One of those times happened to be before I was on bedrest and I had to keep the orange jug with me at school in the fridge in a hot/cold bag. Gross.

Biggest Challenge: Getting through the day on very little sleep. I am so very blessed that Brent works from home. Although he doesn’t actually work at home all day every day, it’s nice to have him around when he is home. He is such a selfless husband/father and works his rear end off to provide for us and also keep up with his demanding wife and daughter :). He never ever complains.
