I spent yesterday morning with Shelly and Melissa and it was wonderful. Shelly made us lunch and we sat around and talked for several hours. S breastfed all three of her babies and was able to give me some advice and much appreciated support.
Pregnancy hit me like a ton of bricks today, which is probably because I couldn’t sleep last night. I’ve tried to keep a really good attitude while I’ve been pregnant but today I am struggling a little. Every bone and muscle hurts and I am tired and SO uncomfortable and my back is KILLING me and don’t you love me griping? Lol. I know tomorrow will be better if I can get some decent sleep tonight, but I just want today to be over.
Here’s the survey, since I haven’t done it in a while.
How Far Along: 38 weeks
Total Weight Gained: I either lose or stay the same since eating for gestational diabetes.
Maternity Clothes: Um, a lot of them don’t even cover the belly anymore.
Sleep: Potty twice a night. Toss and turn some, sleep some. I sleep pretty well if I don’t have to work the next day but on work days I can’t sleep much.
Best Moment of the Week: Time with the girls yesterday.
Movement: More thumps, bumps, and rolls than kicks nowadays as he runs out of room. He feels HUGE and I’m not sure that there’s much room left in there.
Food Craving: I keep seeing commercials from S.onic and B.raums for those ice cream mixed with candy shake things. Kind of like a B.lizzard from DQ. I really really really want one.
Gender: It's a boy! We have a name, but I’m not putting it on here until after he’s born. If you want to know, you can email me.
Belly Button: Flat, sometimes out a little if Piglet pokes it with his foot.
Labor Signs: Contractions here and there.
What I miss: Eating what I want to eat.
What I look forward to: That should be pretty obvious at this point.
