How far along? 40 weeks, 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: 24 pounds!
Stretch marks? Still none yet 🙂
Sleep: sleep has been up and down lately. mostly because I’ve been having some contractions since Sunday night. Monday night I was up quite a few times between contractions and using the bathroom. But I think my body is ready for her to come out and is just exhausted!
Best moment this week: last night was our last OB appointment for baby girl Hotmar. Such a bittersweet moment, even though we were hoping to not even be at the appointment…but things of course don’t always go as planned. Probably the hardest thing for me to take in throughout this whole pregnancy. The other awesome moment this week was telling Ava that the next time she comes over, she WILL have a baby sister to hold. She’s so excited for that!
Food cravings: No more cravings. Drumsticks will probably forever be something that I love and enjoy having one after supper to help calm my stomach lol.
Belly Button in or out? belly button is completely out!
Wedding rings on or off? I’ve officially gotten to the point of not being able to wear my wedding ring 😦 which is really hard for me. I haven’t had my ring off my finger for more then a few minutes since we got married….so hopefully soon I will be able to wear it again!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Just tired….haha I’m a pretty happy and laid back person anyways.
Weekly Wisdom: Life will throw you curve balls and you just need to go with the flow. Going past my due date with no baby was obviously something I didn’t want to happen, or had hoped that it wouldn’t happen. I also originally didn’t want to get my membranes stripped, but went with it because things were progressing in my eyes. Knowing that in the end, baby girl will be here, is something that I just need to keep my mind on. I can’t wait to meet her and hold her tight!
Next appointment: Induction, Tuesday December 16th….7:00pm. The end is near
