Alas, Charlotte decided not to make her entrance into the world last week, so here I am with another update! Maybe THIS is the week we will meet our girl! The uncertainty of when she will come is driving me slightly nuts, but I know eventually she HAS to come out, right? 🙂
Baby’s size? According to BabyCenter.com, she could be 7 pounds now and 20 inches long.
Weight Gain? Even though I gained 3 pounds (!) when I went for my checkup last week, somewhere along the way I must have miscalculated my weight gain because the doctor told me I’ve only gained 39 pounds and that included the weight I gained that day. Only a 3 pound difference, but still, I’ll take it!
Stretch marks? Yes.
Belly button in or out? I think it’s gotten even more shallow, but it’s still an innie.
Maternity Clothes? Yes, and if I could wear pajama bottoms and oversized t-shirts to work, I sure would. I wonder if I could ask for an exception to the office dress code since I’m so pregnant and having a hard time not wearing the same 2 shirts and pair of pants every day…
Sleep? For whatever reason, Saturday nights have been terrible nights for sleep. I end up waking up around 3 or 4 and then can’t go back to sleep, which makes getting up for church so hard. I just remind myself that I’m always blessed and challenged when I go!
Foods I am loving? Tagalong Girl Scout cookies. Mmm, mmm, get in my belly!
Foods I am hating? Nothing new.
Symptoms? The hip pain has returned with a vengeance, and I go to the bathroom roughly 899 times day, but who’s counting? 🙂 I also think I’ve had some mild contractions, but they go away on their own and are very intermittent.
What I miss? I miss breathing through my nose at night!
What I will miss? Feeling Charlotte move around.
What I’m looking forward to? Meeting Charlotte, seeing Stephen be a father. He’s going to be SUCH a good daddy.
Emotions: Anxious, excited, impatient, teary (I read the book Guess How Much I Love You to Charlotte the other day and started boo-hooing in the middle of it!)
Stay tuned this week for a little baby pool/survey that you all can fill out if you want!
