My cervix is thinning which is first step before being dilated at all but no dilation. I said this was good to know since last time I got to hospital so fast and was 8 cm. Also she said definitely boy and also definitely felt a head. Apparently they start checking at 38 weeks but since I was midway through 37 weeks I could be checked or not. The nurse assumed I wouldn't want to be but I chose to be checked because if I was dilated already or something that would be good to know. Oh she also said he's posterior but I said I didn't know what it meant. I just looked it up to see.
I looked at Target for curtains. Then 2 days later went to Bed Bath & Beyond to look at curtains. I failed and left empty handed. Then I dug out curtains we have and decided to use some green ones we had. I don't think they match very well and the greens clash but at least they make the room nice and dark. So now we just need to buy a curtain rod.
I had a baby sprinkle today. It was for the one mom group. It was a joint sprinkle. This was the first sprinkle they did not do the homemade onesies. I was so looking forward to that. I can't believe they didn't do it. Ella loved to color in after I drew last time. I was going to have her make one for Tobe.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 47.6 lb gain overall. I gained 4.7 lb in the past week. I actually gained over a lb in the past day. I'm huge! Clothes don't fit. Well my maternity shorts finally fit better.
Movement: This baby moves so much and there's a lot more pushing out of the skin than with Ella.
What I miss: Running! lunch meat. Exercise. Being mobile.
Symptoms: My back gets sore. I go to the bathroom a lot. I am swollen. I am so tired. It's quite difficult to go from lying to standing.
Best moment this week: making more onesies.
Looking forward to: Getting curtains up and cleaning the crap out of the nursery.
Exercise: I'm not exercising. I'm playing and climbing with Ella. That is like exercise.
|Ella has to help take pictures so then I end up with a lot|
Different from last time: Last time the baby was predicted to be 6 lb 7 oz ± 15 oz. and this time 7 lb 6 oz ± 18 oz. Last time I mentioned crazy dreams and I don't even remember those this time.
