oh baby! 38 weeks!

September 25, 2012 in Oh baby!

How far along? 38 weeks! I totally missed my 37 week post last week. Life was out of control busy. In fact, I was beyond overwhelmed.

How big is the baby? Nearly 7 pounds and about 20 inches long. The size of a pumpkin!

Total weight gain? I forgot to ask the doctor for my weight gain last week. So I’ll just go with the previous weeks’ total of 35 pounds.

Stretch marks? A few right around my belly button. They seem to be getting a bit worse, but not growing in number. So that’s good.

Sleep: Awful. But it’s still my only complaint about the end of this pregnancy. Everything else I can deal with.

Movements: Baby boy is moving like crazy still.

Food cravings: Just root beer again.

Food aversions: Grilled chicken still.

What I miss: Sleep. But I have a feeling I’ll be missing that feeling of being well-rested for the next 20 years or so!

What I’m looking forward to: Our 38 week appointment is this week. I love hearing his little heartbeat! But really I’m looking forward to doing a bit more cleaning. ๐Ÿ™‚

Other notes: I’ve got pregnancy rage in a bad way. Like, want to rip peoples faces off. I like to pretend that it’s from the extra testosterone I have running through my body thanks to carrying a boy. No?? Not legit?? Either that or it’s just plain ol’ pregnancy rage. I don’t want to take any nonsense from anyone. So, world, just try not to piss me off too bad these next couple weeks, k? ๐Ÿ™‚
