Baby Update: 38 Weeks

How far along? 38 weeks!
Symptoms: Sleepy, stressed, lower back pain, braxton hicks contractions, this wierd burnign feeling under my skin some times... the works.
Total weight gain/loss: +12
Maternity clothes? Lots and lots. But I prefer to just wear comfy sweats and my husband's large shirts.
Sleep:  Still only waking up once a night and then really early. 
Best moment this week:  FINALLY finishing little man's bedroom!

Movement: Not much, his head goes from under one rib to under the other, and all the kicks feel like his foot is going to come out my vagina (super cute, right). And yes, I said his head.. little man is still breech. Waaaah.
Food cravings:  Marylou's Oreo Cookie Monsters. And Watermelon Coolatas from Dunkins.
Gender: Boy!
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks contractions and lower back pain but nothing of significance yet. Dave and I decided to schedule a csection after our version attempt yesterday didn't work.  Now I'm just crossing my fingers I don't go into labor before the c-section date!
Belly Button in or out?  In. Still. Go me. Actually, that probably just means I'm fat, right?
What I miss: Feeling relaxed. The scheduled c section has really freaked me out because now I know there's no way this baby is showing up later than 5/2. Factor in all of my Masters coursework will need to be turned in by 5/1 and I still need to finish my state teacher evaluations... this week might suck. :/
What I am looking forward to: Holding little man in my arms! In just 6 days!
Weekly Wisdom:  My baby is an uncooperating asshole. I mean, everything happens for a reason, and I just have to trust that there's a reason this baby needs to come out via c section.
Milestones:  I passed the group B strep test! Wooo! And now I can keep saying "This is our last Friday/Saturday/Sunday/etc as a family of three...." :)

  1. 6 days! That seems so surreal! I have 5 weeks left and am having such trouble picturing myself with a newborn's been 3.5 years since our fourth was born. I hope everything goes smoothly with your section, and that you get good rests until then!
