How far along: 39 weeks
I’m feeling: Ready - still feeling really good but I've decided this baby can come at any time now
Total weight gain: 32.5 lbs
Baby Rote’s size: 7-8 lbs and 19-21 in comparable to a small pumpkin
This week: I noticed I started retaining some fluid this week, my face seemed a little puffier on some days and I've lost my ankles a little bit.
I turned 29 on the 24th and we got to hear the little one's heartbeat so that was a perfect birthday present. Without realizing it I guess I've been having mini contractions, I had one at our appointment and I just thought it was baby in an awkward positing pushing and making my stomach really hard - apparently not. Now if only all the contractions could pass by me unnoticed!!
Sleep: insomnia started to kick in a little bit more this week and finding a comfortable position is getting more and more difficult!
Best moment this week: Getting to hear our little one's heartbeat on my birthday and know that he or she is head down (nice and low in fact) and in perfect position.
Also the weather this week was perfect, we grilled twice and tested out our new patio furniture!!
Movement: This little one is still making waves across my stomach and it is so fun to watch
Food cravings: Sea Salt Covered Chocolates - I also had a craving this week for chicken salad so I had to whip that up quick!
Food aversions: nothing
Belly button in or out: out
Looking forward to: The arrival of this little one!
Also Steve's cousin and girlfriend (were due on the 24th) had their baby today, March 30th, so I can't wait to meet him!!
