As the Bump Grows: Week 38

August 11, 2014 As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 2

It’s truly a waiting game right now as I get closer to my due date.

And now for the belly shot:


Oh, I am seriously starting to feel that pressure and weight in my lower abdomen. I definitely feel like the belly has “dropped”.

Baby Size: As long as a leek – 7lbs, 19.5in
Gender: Girl!
Movement: Mostly stretches and “ripples”, not a lot of kicks or anything like that, which is expected because I bet it’s pretty tight in there right now.
Weight Gained: 2lbs
New Pregnancy Symptoms: My lower back, legs, and pelvis were aching SO much this week. That may be partly due to the fact that my mom went on vacation this week and I helped out at the nail salon, standing up doing eyebrows all day. By the end of the day, I can barely manage to eat and brush my teeth before I crash.
Cravings/Aversions: Looks like this pregnancy is basically craving free, except for the minor cravings here and there. I have noticed that I’m eating less, which is weird because my belly dropped so I should have more room in my stomach.
Sleep Changes: I’ve actually been sleeping fine, which is great for me.
How I’m Feeling: Aside from stress from school and all that entails, I’m feeling content. I’m eagerly awaiting BG3’s arrival and just trying to enjoy my last few weeks (days) of pregnancy.
Anything Else: I wonder if she’ll stay in there long enough for me to go to Dorney Park next Sunday?! I haven’t been in a pool ALL summer and I want it so bad!

Thanks for following along on this journey with me. See you next week!
