Due Date: August 2, 2011
Total weight gain/loss: 9 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yep, mostly everything except a few comfy pants, sweatshirts and longer shirts still work.
Stretch Marks? Nada...keep working for me, Bio Oil!
Sleep: I'm still waking up several times a night to change positions, and of course there are the 1-3 bathroom trips every night. I guess I'll probably just never sleep the same. Maybe this is getting me ready for how motherhood will be.
Best moment this week: Having my doctor's appointment and learning that nothing had changed with my cervix.
Movement: She's still quite the mover, but I think I'm getting more used to feeling her movements and therefore sometimes ignore them during the days when I'm busy at work. Sometimes I leave work and feel like she hasn't moved as much that day, but then I get home and lay down and she's WILD. Same on my days off.....W.I.L.D.
Food cravings: BLs (that would be a BLT minus the T)
Food aversions: CHICKEN! (Will I ever look at you the same?)
Gender: Girl (at least I hope she still is or I'm gonna have to start returning some things)
Labor Signs: Although I've been contracting for the last 2 weeks, my doctor checked my cervix on Monday and it was still very firm and long and closed, which was music to my ears. She also did a fetal fibronectin test that predicts if you will spontaneously go into labor in the next 2 weeks and that came back negative. Very reassuring news for a pregnant high risk OB nurse who wishes she knew less! :)
Belly Button in or out? Innie, although it's getting a lot more shallow and I'm wondering if it will eventually get flat.
What I miss: Sleeping on my back without feeling a little paranoid and being able to shave my legs and tie my shoes comfortably.
What I am looking forward to: My prenatal massage next week. Work has been hellish the last 2 weeks and a massage is MUCH NEEDED for this mama to unwind.
