Welcome back to my weekly review of how my pregnancy is going. We’re so close to the due date and I’m so happy with how I’m coping! As you know, this is baby number three and the risks associated with pregnancy increase every time you have a child but I’m not experiencing any major issues. Going into this pregnancy, I talked a lot to my friends who have had multiple kids and they gave me their tips on keeping healthy. One of my friends is still in the process of fixing diastasis recti because they suffered ab separation on their third pregnancy. I’m doing my best to avoid this and am feeling good that I won’t happen to me.
How far along: 38 weeks pregnant! Due September 27th. So beyond thankful to have made it full term!
Total weight gain: Unknown:) Read more about why I changed this here.
Maternity clothes: Basically everything is maternity OR multiple sizes up!
Stretch marks: Not one new stretch mark this time around! Which is crazy since I am the biggest I have ever been I think! But I am using a combo of old and new tricks to keep them away. The Mama Mio oil I have used with the past two pregnancies has kept me almost completely stretch mark free, so i’m sticking with it. But I am also adding in a drop of Gentle Baby and Frankincense Young Living essential oils.
Sleep: Napping every day, esp. since I don’t know when labor is going to start. Only getting up once a night to pee as well- so its actually been pretty good.
Best moment of this week: Honestly, I don’t even know. We had a busy weekend, and I feel like my brain if just kinda fried these days haha.
Miss anything: Were SO close now that i’m just fine with anything.
Movement: Still crazy and so low.
Food cravings: For the first time, nothing really. WOAH!
Anything making you queasy or sick: nada!
Have you started to show yet: Haha this shouldn’t be a question anymore.
Gender: A sweet precious baby GIRL!
Labor signs: Doctor says I am 2cm dilated, 70% effaced, and shes at a -2 station. She stripped my membranes today, so we will see if that does anything.
Belly button in or out: Its out, ALL the way now.
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy:)
Looking forward to: Meeting this sweet baby girl soon! Thats basically all my mind is occupied with right now, so thats it:)
