We made it to Friday! My mom and I are heading to Dayton today to meet with the Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists again. If you remember, we went here back around 32 weeks so they could get a better picture of how big Baby B is. The goal today is to reevaluate how big our sweet babe is and establish a solid labor and delivery plan. While we are there getting answers, today I’m sharing with you our 38-week bumpdate. Hopefully, this will be our last update because I’m so ready for Baby B to be here.
How far along?
38 Weeks + 2 Days
Size of the baby?
Spaghetti Squash, Pomeranian, or Ukulele
Weight of baby?
+/- 7 pounds
My total weight gain?
-Baby B has an eye color now
-He/She could have up to an inch of hair (we are predicting a reddish tint)
-At this point, all of Baby B’s organs are functioning on their own.
Yes, lots, unfortunately! My body grew so quickly and I feel like there is no more room for Baby B.
Still living in them. Lately, I’ve been just throwing on dresses since it’s been so hot and they seem to fit the best.
We will be finding out whenever Baby B decides to arrive.
Not as active as he/she has been. Baby B is running out of space.
I’ve actually been pretty exhausted lately. I think it’s my body’s way of telling me to get as much sleep as I can now before little babe gets here.
Still loving sweets like cakes, cookies, and ice cream but I’ll eat anything in site.
-Heartburn & Acid Reflux
High of the Week:
I started my leave on Monday! I had 2 weeks of vacation saved up so I’m taking the 2 weeks vacation on top of my 7 weeks of maternity leave.
Low of the Week:
Contractions started on Sunday and lasted about 6 hours then disappeared. I was really hoping it was the real deal.
