37 weeks


How far along? 37 weeks

Maternity clothes? yes - but not in this picture! 

Sleep: i get up multiple times a night ... comfort is a thing of the past 

Best moment this week: knowing he'll be here NEXT WEEK!

Miss anything? an adult beverage  << yep. that.

Movement: yep, still moving in there

Food cravings: nothing really. food hasn't sounded as disgusting the past few days but i'm not really WANTING anything either. << still this. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: not really baby related, sinus crap because of our weather that can't make up its mind and is messing with my ears. not cool.

Gender: boy

Labor signs: random contractions. nothing consistent.

Symptoms: still these, ESPECIALLY the sore hips. yowsa. >> heavy belly, sore back, sore hips, waddling, restless legs and arms, have to go to the bathroom all. the. time. uncomfortable pretty much all over.

Belly button in or out? flat ... less out and more flat. i think because he's DEFINITELY dropped. 

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: pretty happy although i'm uncomfortable...trying to not complain too much!

Blood sugar: doing well, my insulin need has dropped a little, dr awesome made some adjustments today - lowered basals overnight (been waking up with lows in the middle of the night and the morning) and lowered boluses for meals. hopefully it's the magic combo for the last week. :) 

Looking forward to: meeting him next week!! ALREADY?! it seems like it's been forever away the whole time and now, ohemgee it's almost time!

36 weeks


How far along? 36 weeks

Maternity clothes? yes 

Sleep: i get up multiple times a night ... comfort is a thing of the past ;) 

Best moment this week: his nursery is DONE. and my husband and i had a nice long holiday weekend together - one of the last of those we'll have that is just the two of us! 



Miss anything? an adult beverage  << yep. that.

Movement: yep, still moving in there

Food cravings: nothing really. food hasn't sounded as disgusting the past few days but i'm not really WANTING anything either.

Anything making you queasy or sick: not really ... but he is getting so big that some of his movements make me a little nauseous.

Gender: boy

Labor signs: contractions here and there, but according to the OB, there's no progress. he'll likely stay put until i'm induced.

Symptoms: still these >> growing heavy belly, sore back, sore hips, waddling, restless legs and arms, have to go to the bathroom all. the. time. uncomfortable pretty much all over.

Belly button in or out? flat/out

Wedding rings on or off? still on

Happy or moody most of the time: pretty happy although i'm uncomfortable...trying to not complain too much!

Blood sugar: still doing well, it seems like the end of pregnancy and level blood sugar is a winning combo for me.

Looking forward to: i think this can just stay the standard 'meeting our baby' answer now.

35 weeks

happy thanksgiving!

How far along? 35 weeks

Maternity clothes? yes 

Sleep: i sleep fine, i wake up to go to the bathroom or because i'm uncomfortable about 3-4 times a night now...

Best moment this week: it was nice to have a calm weekend at home, getting some last minute things done in his room, like hanging up his ABC's - the nursery is almost done! 

the K is to come :)

Miss anything? an adult beverage  << yep. that.

Movement: almost always ... he's busy - but we already knew that!

Food cravings: i did randomly crave twinkies the other night. but otherwise, nothing really. food hasn't sounded as disgusting the past few days but i'm not really WANTING anything either.

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope

Gender: boy

Labor signs: braxton hicks, a few 'real' contractions here and there. 

Symptoms: still these >> growing heavy belly, sore back, sore hips, waddling, restless legs and arms, have to go to the bathroom all. the. time.

Belly button in or out? yeah, it's starting to pop out a little

Wedding rings on or off? on, although sometimes i contemplate taking them off because they are looking snug - but then a few hours later or the next day they fit normal.

Happy or moody most of the time: pretty happy  

Blood sugar: still doing well! i'm thinking i might need to drop some of my basals, i've had some more frequent lows! 

Looking forward to: i think this can just be the standard meeting our baby answer ... looking forward to holding his little feet and telling him no more trying to break mommy's ribs ;)

34 weeks


How far along? 34 weeks

Maternity clothes? yes 

Sleep: i sleep fine, i just wake up to go to the bathroom or because i'm uncomfortable ... and then sometimes it takes me a while to fall back asleep - my body is practicing for the future ;)

Best moment this week: my coworkers had a nice baby shower for me, it was really great! also adding more finishing touches to his room - it's SO CLOSE to being done (yes i'll share some pics when it's finished)! i packed his bag (which doesn't contain much) ... thinking about doing that for myself. haha :)  AND dr awesome said i don't need to come back before he's born, because my next appointment would be a few days before i get induced (and ya know, i'm doing so well with blood sugars. boom.)! AAAHHH!! 

and my sorority sister took a couple pictures of us a few weeks ago that she sent me, love them! 




Miss anything? an adult beverage  << yep. that.

Movement: almost always. on today's ultrasound it was confirmed that yes, he does keep his feet up under my right rib cage (i definitely have confirmed that without an ultrasound) ... and he likes to keep his legs straight out. SO COMFY!! ;) i envision him kicking those legs out of swaddles.  

Food cravings: no, nothing sounds that great. food is not appealing. blah. food.

Anything making you queasy or sick: not really

Gender: boy

Labor signs: braxton hicks, a few 'real' contractions but nothing to worry or get excited about (yes, talked to my OB about it)

Symptoms: yup, still all of these >>> growing heavy belly, sore back, sore hips, waddling, restless legs and arms

Belly button in or out? it's flat

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: pretty happy  

Blood sugar: still doing well! A1c stayed the same :) 

Looking forward to: meeting our guy and everyone else getting to meet him!! and ya know, this is the best time of year - thanksgiving, christmas ... SO EXCITED!
