How far along are you: 38 Weeks! (Well really 38 weeks 3 days now)
How big is the baby:
Your baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds and she’s over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). She has a firm grasp, which you’ll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.
Wondering what color your baby’s eyes will be? You may not be able to tell right away. If she’s born with brown eyes, they’ll likely stay brown. If she’s born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time she’s 9 months old. That’s because a child’s irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after she’s born, but they usually won’t get “lighter” or more blue. (Green, hazel, and brown eyes have more pigment than gray or blue eyes.) (source)
Baby’s Gender: We both are on the fence.
Baby’s Name: We have a name for a boy or a girl. Choosing a boys name was easy for us and was decided upon months ago but the girls name has been a little more challenging but we finally decided on one.
Weight Gained: 28 lbs
Clothes: Mostly just wearing dresses as they are the most comfortable.
How are you feeling: I am feeling pretty good. I have been napping in the afternoons which has been nice and I’m still getting out for my walks. Wednesday I had some cramping, low back pain and Braxton Hicks contractions and had Neil convinced it was almost time but of course here I am writing this so obviously it wasn’t time. I am also feeling pretty great that I AM OFFICIALLY A WAHM/SAHM!
What do you miss: I miss having more clothes to wear. I miss running.
- “Lightning crotch.”
- Having Braxton Hicks contractions, difficulty sleeping, vaginal discharge, and an itchy belly.
Cravings: Thai food. Water. Almond Milk.
How are you sleeping: Sleeping is going okay. I have been waking up around 3am and am wide awake. I have been either getting up and doing something like working on blog posts, organizing the nursery or I lay in bed and put Netflix on my phone.
Workouts: This week I went swimming and for some waddles.
Things I’m looking forward to: Meeting our baby!
