38 Weeks {Baby Dorey #3}

Thursday, November 2, 2017

Size of Baby: I'm currently 38 weeks (+4 days) and Claire weighs about 6.8 pounds + is measuring about 19.5", or the size of a spaghetti squash. 

Total Weight Gain: I've gained a little over 30 pounds but I actually lost weight (or didn't gain any because I had on different shoes) between my 37th week and 38th appointments. 

Symptoms: Had some issues this week with elevated blood pressures; nothing dangerous but higher than my norm. I have also been experiencing bouts of dizziness and extreme exhaustion in my legs. Claire is really low and pushing on all kinds of nerves in my pelvic area and causing discomfort. I was dilated to a 1 on Wednesday, which isn't much. But I was only a 1.5 two days before having Stella....so, we'll see. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: I don't have any cravings or real aversions. I just typically eat in the earlier part of the day and by dinner I'm usually too exhausted/full to eat. 

Movement: She is still moving. Most of the time it's pressure that I feel or her knees kicking me in my sides. 

Purchases: I have been on a roll with buying way too many matching sister outfits. But can you really have too many of those?? 

Best Moment of the Week: I've continued to stay really busy the past couple of weeks. We've just had one thing after another. Halloween was fun (and exhausting), and I got to go with the kids on their field trip to the Fire station this week! 

Looking Forward To: Honestly, meeting our baby girl! Although, I don't think I have fully wrapped my brain around what that all means. We're so excited for her to be here!
