37 Week Bumpdate

Hello 37 weeks!

This week is week 37 of my pregnancy. Just like with the twins, this pregnancy is flying by. We are so excited to meet her soon. In less than 3 weeks, we will be bring home our newest addition!!

 

Here is my 37 week bumpdate:

Weight Gain: 27 lbs. (I’m getting close to what I gained with the girls)

Cravings: My cravings have pretty much subsided now. I guess since the baby is getting so big, I’m not as hungry as I was before. Plus, my acid reflux has kept me from wanting to eat too much.

Sleep: Still not getting any! Waking every hour on the hour is definitely for the birds.

Mood: Hello mood swings! If you read my Mommy Meltdown post then you know that I’ve been a bit on the moody side. I’ve also been super emotional. I had to fight back the tears at church this past Sunday because they put the decaf coffee away earlier than usual. Seriously?!

Movement: She is still a wild animal. She has also been having the hiccups every day which is such a crazy feeling.

Dilation: I went in today and I’m not even 1 cm dilated. I definitely haven’t progressed as much as we had hoped, so fingers crossed that next week, things start moving.

Birth plan: I am hoping for a VBAC this time. I received my VBAC consent form today. That just makes the entire process that much more real. If my body doesn’t cooperate then I am prepared for a Csection again. As long as our baby girl is brought into this world safe and healthy, the means of delivery aren’t that important to me anymore.

Any other preggo mamas out there? I’d love to hear how you are feeling! Comment or message me!

33 Week Bumpdate

Unique, eco-friendly products chosen just for you and your little one!

This is week 33 of my pregnancy! Where is the time going? In 7 weeks (because I have convinced myself that I will make it to 40 weeks) our sweet baby girl will be here!!

According to all the apps, she is the size of a honeydew melon. It still makes me laugh that they compare the baby to food. Seems appropriate. She is estimated at 19 in and 4.5 lbs. That is almost the same size as one of the twins when they were born. So, I am currently carrying a Carley (Baby B). Crazy!

Overall, I’m feeling really good. Yes, I’m tired and have a few aches and pains, but I can’t complain. Hopefully the next 7 weeks are just as uneventful as the first 33!

Here is my 33 week Bumpdate!

Weight Gain: 20 lbs. (I only gained 30 lbs with the twins, so I’m interested to see how the weight gains compare at the end.)

Cravings: Wendy’s All-Natural Lemonade. Clearly way more sugar than I need or would usually have, but dang it’s refreshing! I crave it daily but may indulge once a week, if that.

Sleep: What’s sleep? If I’m not waking up to go pee, I’m waking up just because. Every hour on the hour. I wish my body would get with the program. I don’t need to prepare for a newborn. I have twin toddlers. LET THIS MAMA SLEEP!

Mood: Happy mostly, but dang these hormones will throw me for a loop. You know it’s bad when your husband just laughs at the absolute absurd things that come out of your mouth or when he sees your kicking a plastic cup across the kitchen floor because it won’t stay put in the cabinet.

Movement: This baby is a gymnast for sure! I’m talking Olympian. Perhaps the girls stretched my body just enough to give this little lady so much more room for activities, but she is wild! And I do love it, even when I’m convinced she’s trying to escape my body.

Nesting: Well, I was a nesting machine the last 2 weeks. This week, nothing. I have no desire to do anything. A big sorry to my husband who has really taken one for the team this week and did so much for me. I need to get back to nesting mode ASAP because I still have so much left on my to-do list.

Maternity clothes: I have not purchased anything during this pregnancy. Heck, it’s been so freaking hot that I have no desire to wear much of anything. I’ve been living in yoga shorts and sports bras. Quite the sight to be seen for sure. This weekend, I’m biting the bullet and getting so comfy shorts. They still make Soffe cheer shorts right?!

It has occurred to me that I really need to get my hospital bag together soon, so that is at the top of my to-do list.

Stay tuned to my next blog post. I will share with you all my list and even provide a printable for those of you that need to get your things together to!
