Well we made it through Robbie’s trip to Sydney without me going into labour, but unfortunately, Robbie came back feeling pretty sick. Hopefully this weekend will be good for him to recover from his symptoms and start feeling better because this pregnant lady is ready to ramp up alllllll the natural induction methods. I am ready to do all the walking and eat all the spicy foods. I am ready for this baby to make his or her debut, and there’s nothing stopping them now – Mom’s ready and Dad’s home!
This update will probably be pretty short because we’re really getting to the end now. I don’t feel like I have as much to update. However, I have made an entire page just for my pregnancy journey where you can find all the weekly updates and the other posts I did relating to pregnancy. You can find that all here.
Weeks Pregnant: 38 weeks
Baby is the size of a… Pumpkin!
Food Cravings: Cold water, Sprite, cereal, doughnuts…
Food Aversions: Nothing’s coming to mind.
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks pretty much every evening at this point. I wake up feeling pretty great, not too huge, not too tight, but by the end of the day, I feel ginormous and that my belly is going to explode. I am also getting indigestion/reflux nearly every day at some point, but it’s nothing too unbearable. The only other thing is pretty bad carpel tunnel when I first wake up.
New this week: There aren’t too many things that are new this week because we’re getting into those final moments where most things are all ready to go. I have been cleaning a bit more and doing some more laundry. Robbie cleaned the car last week, which was so good to check off the list.
Looking forward to: Baby time! I am looking forward to this baby’s arrival. I have a midwife appointment tomorrow, so it’ll be good to see how things are progressing. I’m up to once-a-week visits now.
I’m also looking forward to writing a new sort of post and not pregnancy updates. I am glad that I’ve done these, though. It’ll be neat to look back on in the future.
Miss anything? The capacity to get comfortable. My rings. My shoes.
Exercise: Stretching. Waddling – pretty much “Waddling Willingham” at this point.
Books I’m Currently Reading: Same same same.
