40 weeks

Well, today’s the big day. Due date! Still no appearance of our little bundle. We are so ready to meet this little guy or little lady. Come on, baby! Mama is running out of little things to do around the house!

How far along? 40 weeks.

Total weight gain: I don’t know. Well, last week I was 154. That means 26 lb gained. I go to the Dr. this afternoon. **edit** I’d lost one lb so I’m at 153.

Sleep: Fatigue comes and goes everyday. I slept in Monday & Tuesday. Yesterday I woke with Robert at 5am and I was a mess at bedtime. It’s a huge ordeal to turn over in bed. Not to mention getting up for frequent potty breaks!

Miss Anything? just all the same things I missed the last 9-10 months.

Movement: Well, baby had hiccups for about an hour straight last night and they are very noticeable. I mean, baby is full size now, so you can imagine my belly jumping up and down. It’s seriously cramped in there so acrobatics aren’t as common.

Food cravings: Heartburn is back in the evenings. I don’t have much of an appetite. Basically, I only eat because I know baby needs to eat. I just want a milkshake.

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks to the max. And my hips hurt. Once I’m sound asleep I don’t notice them, but when I wake up they are aching!

Feelings: A strange mix of calm, peaceful, anxious, and nervous. How they all exist together I’m not sure.

Looking forward to: The moment we know if we have a son or daughter!

  1. Wow! You’ve reached your due date and look awesome. Congrats on having such a healthy pregnancy, your little one is seriously on the way! I’m excited for you guys and can’t wait to find out some good news very, very soon! An old wives tale says that heartburn means your baby will have lots of hair… we’ll see! I’m awfully heartburn-y as of late too.
