How Far Along: 38 Weeks
Size of Baby: 19 1/2 inches long, 6.8 lbs
Total Weight Gain: 34lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yes. And I’m so sick of them! Ready for “real” clothes soon.
Gender: Girl. What a contrast between Jax’s closet and Julianne’s. All you see if pink and purple. As it should be!
Movement: Yes. Her being big and running out of room does not stop her. One bit. (Sigh.)
What I Miss: My real clothes as I said above. I’m getting excited that I will be able to wear them soon. And I miss my energy. I can tell that even running errands makes me tired. I look forward to bed every night.
Cravings: I made the Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies again. Enough said.
Best Moment of the Week: Going to the hospital on Monday and Julianne passed her test within 5 minutes. But they have to monitor you for 20. So it was nice to get in and out of there so fast. And then when I went to my doctors appointment, he measured her on the ultrasound and estimated that she is just over 7 lbs. She is ready to go!
But while I really have no complaints in this pregnancy and still feel pretty good, I’m so tired of these random contractions. They will start up, last about an hour and then fade away. My favorite is when they get good and regular and I start to think…maybe this it! And then they disappear. My biggest complaint with them is that they just wear my body out. I don’t have much energy as it is, so I really feel that steal my energy away.
