as of around 2 o’clock today, i was 1 cm dilated & almost fully thinned 🙂
also i lost, like, five pounds which is great because it puts me back within the amount of weight that i was supposed to gain. it probably just had to do with the kind of clothes that i’m wearing because i still don’t believe that i’ve gained this much weight. i mean, i know i’ve been lazy for most of these 9/10 months but, really?! i don’t think i gained that much!
here is a little update for the week;
HOW FAR ALONG: 37 weeks!
BABY THIS WEEK: he is almost fully grown! he weighs about 6 1/3 pounds and is a little over 19 inches! (babycenter.com info) & according to the doctor, he is head down (for the second week in a row!!!!) and should stay head down! 🙂
MY WEIGHT: i was 155 today. it’s pretty great!
SLEEP: eh. some nights it’s harder to get to sleep than normal but i just take tylenol pm and cuddle up next to my hot box, andrew, and pretty soon i’m drifting off into sleep-land.
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: finding out that i was pretty much all the way thinned and 1 cm dilated at the doctor today 😀
SYMPTOMS: lots of burning rib pain, occasional pelvic pain, and now today slight bleeding from my doc checking my cervix. pain in my thighs sometimes, and arm pain if i lean on one side for too long (normal). i guess i shouldn’t say ‘pain’ because it’s not really pain; it’s just annoyance. but i can say pain if i want to 😉
MOOD: elated today, but i’ve been pretty down lately for some reason. the only thing that keeps me sane is hoping that sawyer will come soon so i can see if i am going to be a good mom!
MOVEMENT: lots and lots 🙂 he loves to stretch yet, in the little space he has left! he especially loves to move around when he knows that mommy wants to go to bed! little pain in my booty!
WHAT I MISS: seeing my feet, HA!
LOOKING FORWARD TO: dilating more 😛 & popping this baby out!
i’m still hoping to have sawyer on the 15th, but we will see! anytime you’re ready, little buddy! i’d love to meet you 🙂
