38 Weeks

I have made it this far without any random people touching my belly! I've heard it happens to everyone so I feel like I dodged a bullet here.

At my last appt. on Wednesday my doc said baby is still head down, so she will probably be that way until the end of the pregnancy. I haven't gained any weight since my last appt. and belly is still measuring at about 36 weeks. So, basically, nothing new since last week. It's all just a waiting game now. Tick tock tick tock.

Things are getting wrapped up at work for maternity leave. I've delegated my responsibilities to other people, left thorough documentation of my work processes, and trained in all the parties involved in taking it on :). I am approved to take 12 weeks off, so I will be returning to work around the second week of May.

Baby size: 6.8 pounds and over 19 1/2 inches long

Cravings: Sweets of all kinds. I baked some Valentine's cookies with Reese's hearts and they are definitely hitting the spot.

Movement: Constant. Moving even more these last few weeks than she ever has. I was told that the movement is supposed to slow down and be less noticeable because there isn't as much room in there, but not for me. I am so entertained and I love her already.

Symptoms: Still some acid reflux, lame. Tired; I take naps almost daily, completely against my will. I hate naps.

Sleep: Meh, not as good as before. I wake up a couple times throughout the night feeling hot or just generally uncomfortable.

Labor signs: Besides the fact that she's dropped, still absolutely none. My doc said I'm lucky but I feel like my body needs to give itself a head start at least.

38 Week Belly:


  1. Those cookies look delicious! And you're so close! I feel the 30 week mark was when it really became more real for me. Thanks for posting!

  2. I stumbled across your blog - I'm a brand new mama to a 9 month old.. and I just loved being pregnant, but being a mama is even better! You look great!


I'd love to hear from you!
