PREGNANCY: 38 Weeks Bump Update

May 8, 2016

Total weight gain: 27lbs

Maternity clothes? Here and there. Loving my Belly Bandit lifesavers that’s for sure! The Upsie Belly is saving my life (and my bladder, back, and pelvis) right now from my heavy belly. I currently live in my BDA leggings too!

Stretch marks? None

Sleep: After nearly two weeks of waking up from 1am-3am nightly and not being able to go back to sleep, my sleep is back to normal… somewhat. Still waking up from 4-5, but hey that is a LOT better than it was!

Workouts: I have slowed down on my workouts some. Right now, I am doing my cardio without any incline since my back is hurting from the pressure of having my baby drop. Nothing really new though now I am focusing on more stretching/yoga and floor moves versus HIIT & jumping. My prenatal workout program has definitely been coming in handy!

Diet: Not really much of anything at all. I only eat half of my dinners at night now and all I want are carbs. I am just not hungry!

Best moment this week: Taking my son to the water park that just opened up and celebrating Mothers Day. My husband got me two Alex & Ani bangles with the birth stones of each of my babies 🙂

Miss anything? Feeling like myself… lol.

Food cravings: Carbs. Fruit.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing in particular, just a slight nausea here and there-think my body is just prepping itself.

Gender: GIRL

Labor signs: Lots and lots of BH contractions, some of which are painful at times. She continues to drop into place. I swear I thought I was going into labor two days ago because the contractions were so strong and regular, but then it stopped.

Symptoms: Tons and tons of movements. She loves to make herself known for sure 🙂

Belly button in or out? On the verge of popping right on out there.

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and thankful.

Looking forward to: More cleaning and maybe some relaxing.
