2 to go.. :)
Baby is :
Baby is the lenght of a leek
During week 38, Axel is over the lenght of a leek.
She has a firm grasp, which I’ll soon be able to test when I’ll hold her hand for the first time! Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.
How I’m Feeling:
feeling ok.. can’t wait to see my doctor at my 39 weeks appointement.. for the past 4 days (now we’re sunday) I have very painful lower back contractions and nausea.. but nothing regular, they can be 45 minutes appart or even 45 seconds appart.. and during night everything stops.. if only it was real labor and not that kind of crap. I’m writing this post and I’m in massive pain… but it’s not regular so I guess it’s still false labor once again. Last evening (nov 22) it was so intense, I almost went to the hospital.. but 3 hours later I was feeling fine… damn it’s annoying!!!! -_-
Other than that, I’m so tired of waiting.. I want my baby girl RIGHT NOW! hahaha! :D
How I’m Changing:
I find my belly lower and very hard.. I guess there is not much room left for her in there.
What I’m Eating/What I’m NOT Eating:
Still drinking a lot of water and raspberry leaf tea.
This week I had a weird craving, I’m craving like crazy… soda! It doesnt matter what it is, it just need to be sparkly, haha! So weird!
Still don’t have a lot of appetite this week too.
Total Weight Gained:
+17 pounds in 38 weeks
Snow shoveling and walking (nov 23), but after 40 minutes of walking (with my son), I had so many cramps, life if my body was about to break in two pieces so I came back home.
Prenatal Care :
Still taking vitamins, calcium supplements and eating healthy too.
At my appointement (38 weeks), my doc was kind of mad because I didnt went to the hospital even if Axel wasnt moving for 3 days.. he did an ukltrasound and a special ukltrasound test to hear the blood in the umbilical cord. Everything is perfect, she’s doing wonderful. Nothing happened to my cervix (well don’t know for now.. but on Nov 18..) Awwww it’s so long and I’m so disapointed.
My next appointement is on November 25 (39 weeks)
Not sleeping very well… It’s so hard to find a way to sleep.. on the back it’s awful, on the left side I hate that, on the right side I kind of squish Axel.. arghhh!!!
Still waking up EVERY hour during the night to go to the bathroom, hahaha!
See you next week!
