dress: Nordstrom (similar)
bracelet: TJMaxx (similar)
How Far Along: 40 Weeks 1 day
Total Weight Gain: 27 lbs
Clothes: running out of things to wear and currently living in one pair of shorts and oversized t-shirts.
Sleep: I can barely get through 2 hours without having to move or go to the bathroom. I go between couch and bed all night long.
Miss Anything: a glass of wine, fitting into normal clothes and not feeling like an elephant
Cravings: no craving but making lots of excuses for eating whatever I want right now.
Symptoms: Lots of contractions, some are real that come for a few hours than stop. We are moving in the right direction just not as fast I would like.
Belly Button/Body Changes: Belly button popped and that's something new. My butt hasn't gained any weight as I can fit into my normal size 6 for the bottoms - yay me!
Mood: Definitely moody and hungry. Bad combination and add to that pregnancy hormones.
Best Moment This Week: When the doctor told me we are making progress and possibly will have this baby sooner than later.
Looking Forward to: holding our baby girl. I have everything set up, washed, packed and ready to go. Cannot wait to finally be done with the pregnancy!
Exercise: Walking at least a 1 mile every day.
On My Mind: I have a very negative attitude right now and that's bad. I had almost no hope when going in for my last prenatal check up that things weren't moving along. But the doctor seemed to think I will be able to deliver on my own. I want to have a VBAC but being late is not something that goes with successful delivery. I have prayed today for God to help me be patient and for Him to have his hand over this delivery. I know that there is very little we can do about the timing and He has it all in his hands. It seems that 9 months fly by so fast but than the last few days come to a screeching halt and all you want to do is to get the baby out. I'm definitely tired of being pregnant but what's a few days with years ahead? A drop in a bucket! Here is to a safe and easy delivery!
