How far along: 37 weeks
I’m feeling: I'm still feeling great, some slight shin pain from the extra weight but nothing to complain about.
Total weight gain: 29 lbs
Baby Rote’s size: 19-22in and 6.5lbs comparable to a Winter Melon
This week: Met with our midwife on the 14th and had a good checkup. Babe's heartbeat was 145bpm and our midwife doesn't think baby will get past 8lbs, that made me feel pretty good!
I have a cousin expecting in May and their baby shower was on the 12th, I'm excited to have cousins on my side and Steve's side who are expecting right now!!
I must appear very large and slightly uncomfortable to people because no one thinks I should be at work when they see me - I think I need a neon sign with a countdown to the due date so people stop wondering why I'm still around!!
Maternity clothes: Bought some nursing tanks that are super soft and comfy from Target - if you have a favorite nursing tank or any postpartum clothing item let me know!!
Sleep: finding myself slightly more restless as the weeks go on but still getting plenty of sleep
Best moment this week: Hearing baby's heartbeat and knowing he/she is head down getting closer for the big arrival day
Movement: I love feeling baby move and enjoy how responsive they are when I poke and prod my belly hehe
Food cravings: nothing
Food aversions: nothing
Belly button in or out: out
Looking forward to: our next appointment that happens to be on my 29th Birthday!!
