Baby Maples is the size of a coconut!
How far along? 35 weeks – just one more month to go! (say what?!)
Maternity clothes? yes, but mostly my maxi and shift dresses
Stretch marks? not yet
Sleep: sleeping has been ok – still have insomnia and have to get up a lot
Best moment this week: taking a spontaneous trip to the lake with some friends – floating in the cool water and enjoying the warm sun was heavenly!
Miss anything? breathing, moving around normally and enjoying a nice cold beer by the lake on a hot summer day
Movement: I am pretty sure Baby Girl is jazzercising – she moves constantly. I guess she is ready to come out!
Food cravings: all things fruit, veggies, fish and ice cream
Food aversions: not food aversions, just everything I eat gives me bad acid reflux and heartburn – but Zantac has really helped. There have been times when my acid reflux has been so bad that it has made me throw up – not pleasant at all
Labor Signs: no
Symptoms: Fatigue, swollen feet and ankles, trouble taking a deep breath and the worst charlie horses of all time – My first really bad one was in the middle of the night which caused me to fall out of bed trying to fix it. Randy was in full on panic mode – oops! But thanks to my wonderful husband he helped massage it out.
Belly Button in or out? still half in and half out
Wedding rings on or off? on but they do feel tighter
Mood: happy, anxious and I now cry easier anytime we talk about meeting Baby Girl for the first time or pray over her
Looking forward to: I can’t wait to meet Baby Girl! She is already so loved!
