How far along: 38 weeks
Size of Baby Bug: Baby Bug is the size of a pumpkin; about 18.9 inches to 20.9 inches long and weighs about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds
Gender: It’s a boy!
Movement: He moves all of the time, but especially in the evenings. You can usually see my stomach move as he does his nightly kicks and punches. Dave is always shocked at how strong and frequent baby’s moves are.
Sleep: It’s hard to sleep when you have to use the restroom every few hours, your body is sore, you’re stressed about trying to get things done before baby comes and you’re still working.
Food cravings: Anything I’m not supposed to eat with gestational diabetes… because if you’re not supposed to have it you want it more, right?
Food aversions: None at the moment
What I miss: Carbs! Sweets, cereal, muffins, bagels, pizza, a big plate of fruit, Easter candy… you get the idea
Pregnancy side effects: Huge belly, leg cramps, being
a little forgetful, having some crazy dreams and back aches
Best moment this past week: Doing maternity photos with Dave
Looking forward to: Meeting the little guy very soon!
