I decided to go ahead and update you at 38 weeks, in case I don't get the chance to do another pregnancy update...
Weight this week: 139 pounds - up 2.5 pounds from 2 weeks ago!
Measurement around (used-to-be) waist: 33" (1" bigger than last time)
Measurement around belly: 38" (1/2 inch bigger than last time)
How big is baby? My midwife estimated that baby is around 7 pounds. According to Baby Center, baby is now about 6.8 pounds and is about 19 1/2 inches long.
Maternity Clothes: Nothing new. I purchased a nursing tank top, though.
Movement: The last few days this baby's movements have felt different. It feels like baby is lower, and the movements are slower.
Cravings: Carbs carbs carbs. The other night I randomly wanted buttered pasta.
Aversions: Nothing really. GIVE ME ALL THE FOOD.
Aches/Pains: My back used to hurt when I was sleeping, but now it's my legs. I'm not sure which is worse! Also, there's seems to be pressure on my right leg. And I'll get a cramp in my right calf occasionally.
I also have pain in my upper left abdomen lately. And I accidentally (obviously) slammed my belly in our chest freezer yesterday. That really hurt! So my right side is a bit tender.
Sleep: We purchased a new mattress! It seems to have a lot more support than our old one. I like that it's all-natural, so I won't have to worry about it off-gassing on our new baby. Hopefully it lasts for a while!
Fitness: Still working out 4 times a week! I'm also doing deep squats, rock-backs, etc. in preparation for labor.
My midwife thinks that I'll have this baby soonish. Baby is pretty low!
And that's my 38 week pregnancy update!
