I thought I would pop in on a Saturday and share with you a quick recap of week 38. It’s weird, the 9th month of pregnancy is the longest and the shortest. The weeks fly by but some days crawl by. I also wanted to share a few pictures from BG’s nursery – it’s complete! We followed the design, leaving out on a few little details. We did not change the overhead light (something that can always be done later), we didn’t add a roman shade (we kept the blinds that already existed) and we have yet to add book shelves (another item that can be done at any time).
The pillow was a total splurge and the rocker is so comfortable. I also love the pouf – even though gold would have been fabulous.
I’m obsessed with the print from Minted.com paired with the wall paper from wallshoppe.com
The furniture from Pottery Barn is gorgeous and I love the pineapple sconces.
The window treatments were also a splurge but such high quality. If she doesn’t love this room, I’m moving in.
Size of Baby: BG’s the size of a winter melon and weighs around 6.6 pounds (guesstimate from a baby app) and is somewhere around 19.6 inches long.
Weight Gained: Last Monday, I had lost 2 pounds. Thankfully my doctor wasn’t concerned at all. So I’m up 8 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight.
Workouts/Exercise: My sanity. Still going for it.
Sleep: Multiple wake ups when I move throughout the night. I also had my first experience with back/leg pain on Thursday night which made falling asleep a little tough.
Symptoms: I’m still wearing my wedding rings and my belly button is still intact (until I sneeze) and right after I wake up because it definitely pops out when I’m laying on my side. Hilarious – though Big Guy is a little freaked out by this. Belly is feeling heavy but it may because she’s working on getting ready to be born. At my appointment this week, I was almost 2 cm dilated and 50% effaced – I’m happy to hear there’s some progress but I’m realistic in knowing it still means she could be hanging out for a couple more weeks.
Food Aversions: None!
Cravings and Favorite Foods: Tator tots. So random. And brownies.
Looking forward to…: Opening a bottle of Iron Horse bubbles once we’re home and settled.
Baby/Pregnancy Purchases: A few more burp cloths (I’ve heard you can’t have enough) and some bows/headbands. I don’t want anyone thinking she’s a boy.
Other: I got a pedicure yesterday and I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with myself today. Probably a long walk since it’s nice out. Big Guy is nesting by finishing a good clean-out of the garage. OH, and we had a date night out last night. I head back to the doctor first thing Monday morning for my 39 week check-up…
