baby growing: week 39.

 week 39 // 1-28-15 

How far along? 39 weeks.

How big is baby? The size of a mini watermelon.

Total weight gain? 27 pounds.

Maternity clothes? Oh, most definitely. Unless I'm at home - then I just throw on a pair of sweats and a pajama shirt.

Sleep? I'm waking up every 2 hours on average and am still sleeping sitting up. It's fine, I'm just excited for this heartburn to go away so I can lie down again!

Food cravings? This week potatoes sounded delicious! I thought of Cafe Rio at one point and got sad that the closest one is almost 13 hours away.

Food aversions? None.

Movement? Every few hours she'll get pretty wiggly. At one point this week she was moving in 3 directions all at once. It was comical and painful.

Belly button in or out? It's still half in, half out.

Weird pregnancy things? The usual + lots of swelling this week! My body is retaining water like it's going out of style, and that's a real confidence booster. ;) I can still wear my wedding ring, but if baby doesn't come for another week or two I might have to forgo wearing it for a little bit.

Best moment of the week? Ben's great and has been giving me the best foot rubs each night!

At my appointment on Monday the doctor said that I was still sitting at a 2 and she expected me to be back the following Monday. Boo. We discussed some potential induction dates, but my hope is that Baby A will decide to come on her own in the next few weeks. Until then, I need to find a craft to start, or a good book, or something!
