If I don't go into labor first my c-section is scheduled for 9-9 at 7 AM.
More of the nursery is ready. Slowly little bits got done as the week went on. The pictures suck because after I took them I realized Ella got finger prints all over my lens. It's hard to believe that this is a lot more together than it was!
I don't like the anticipation of labor. Like WHEN will it start. AHH I don't like the multiple week window when it can happen.
Size of baby: Mini Watermelon, 20 inches long from head to heel. My app on my phone says the baby weighs about 7.25 pounds. The baby gains a half a lb a week.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I gained 1.1 lbs this week for 48.7 lbs overall. Earlier in the week I weighed more though.
Movement: He moves a lot more in the evenings and you can tell he's getting bigger based on the body parts that start to move my skin all around.
What I miss: I miss running. I miss hoagies from Jersey Mike's. I miss being able to turn over in bed without breathing heavy or without it being a big ordeal. I miss not having sciatica pain. I miss being able to walk normally.
Symptoms: My ankles actually got swollen a lot this week. Dave noticed weird bumps on my legs and I think it's just weird swelling. My low back hurts sometimes. Sciatica pain and then left leg pain and numbness. My blood pressure is higher. I want tons and tons of food lately but not sure that's considered a symptom. My nose randomly started bleeding at Trader Joe's on Friday. I still have a few acid burps. (But I did not have heart burn that I noticed.) I'm getting out of breath a lot. Going to the bathroom and getting back to bed and getting under the covers result in me being out of breath!
Best moment this week: Getting more maternity photos taken
Looking forward to: Having a baby
Exercise: I don't exercise for real but I feel like cleaning up was a bit of exercise because it kept triggering more pain so I know I was doing too much.
Same this time: Clothes not fitting even though they fit less this time.
Different from last time: I already had a baby last time at 39 weeks!
