I’m seriously starting to feel the aches, pains, and discomforts as I finish off my 8th month.
And now for the belly shot:
Yep, the belly is definitely getting bigger and firmer.
Baby Size: About the size of a Honeydew Melon – 5lbs, 18in
Movement: Man, this girl loves to hip check me at times. It comes out of nowhere and even though it’s not painful, it’s crazy and surprises the heck out of me & the hubs, lol.
Weight Gained: 3lbs
New Pregnancy Symptoms: I’ve been feeling what I think are Braxton Hicks every now and then. I also get sharp pains here and there around the belly. I’m starting to wonder if I’ll make it past 37 weeks the way this pregnancy is going.
Cravings/Aversions: Nope and nope.
Sleep Changes: The pelvic pain is starting to come back, although not as intense as before yet. Also, I’m consistently getting up once a night to pee. Sigh.
How I’m Feeling: Prepared. All of the baby clothes and gear have been washed and disinfected. I’ve also packed my hospital bag, so we’re pretty much ready for her whenever she’s ready. I’m also feeling a little anxious to be a newborn mother again and also excited to meet her. And I’m noticing my temper is getting pretty short lately, lol. So, a bunch of emotions, really.
Anything Else: I’ve been having crazy dreams lately of me already having the baby, sometimes it’s a good scenario, sometimes it’s not so good. I always fear the worse, so I’m hoping things go smoothly.
Thanks for following along on this journey with me. See you next week!
