I am well aware that last week’s blog posts were not quite up to par. I’ve had a hard time getting into the “blogging zone” recently. At this point of my pregnancy, I definitely have tunnel vision. Andrew and I are both so ready to meet Bonnie. And all the big things that we needed to do in order to prepare for her arrival have already been done.
So now we wait.
I keep telling myself she will be here any day now.
And every time I think that, I think about when Andrew and I were trying to get pregnant. I would think, “any day now… any month now… maybe this is the cycle… maybe this is the treatment… maybe this time next year we will have a child in our arms…”
And I have to say that waiting in anticipation for our child to arrive is SO INCREDIBLE, particularly after waiting and wondering if and when she would ever be conceived.
So even in the midst of my complaining about how long these last few weeks are going to drag on, and moaning about how much I am ready for her to BE HERE ALREADY, I truly am thankful for every single moment of this pregnancy. Every little experience, every feeling, every emotion, every detail.
I’m sure I’ve already said this, but I’ll say it again: The past nine months have been more wonderful than I ever could have imagined. They have been enjoyable, and downright fun.
All that being said, I’m still SO READY FOR HER TO BE HERE!
How far along? 37 weeks!
Total weight gain? 16 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes. And stretchy non-maternity ones.
Stretch marks? Nothing on my stomach.
Sleep: Still not sleeping great, but I’m getting used to it!
Best moment this week: Seeing Bonnie’s face on our ultrasound. It was the first time we’d gotten a clear picture of her face.
Miss anything? I miss being comfortable… with each week that passes I get a little more uncomfortable.
Movement: Her movements are a lot different than they were earlier on in pregnancy.
Food cravings: Nothing specific, but I am much hungrier than usual!
Anything making you feel queasy or sick: Nope!
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: Nothing new.
Belly button in or out? Still in, but nearly flat.
Wedding ring on or off? Off.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy. Also very emotional, but not necessarily in a bad way.
Looking forward to: Tomorrow’s doctor appointment… Hoping we’ve made some progress since last week!
What’s Going on with Baby:
- Is gaining about half a pound each week! I’m still thinking she is gonna be a big baby!
- The weight gain is 100% baby fat. (:
- She is now full-term.
