Week 40 Pregnancy Journal


How Far Along? 40 weeks ... come on, sweet girl!

Size of Baby: A small pumpkin (20 inches)! Our baby weighs approximately 7.5 lbs now according to the BabyBump app (just for a point of reference, I was 7.1 when I was born ... Ian was 7.11)

Gender: All pink!

Weight Gain: Up two pounds from last week's weight, so up a total of 23 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight.

Maternity Clothes: All the time.

Nursery: Check!

Movement: I feel like it's slowing down just a bit, but she's definitely still active. Hiccups happen once daily.

Symptoms: Hormones -- tears come easier than ever before. Also, my skin hasn't been as smooth and glowy as it was in earlier months (dang, was hoping that was there to stay). When sitting, because my belly has dropped, it's much easier to sit like a guy so my tummy can hang down between my thighs ... isn't this attractive?! Walking is becoming increasingly difficult due to lots of pressure from the waist down. 



Sleep: Sleeping well minus the nightly shuffle to the restroom, and it's sometimes difficult to go back to sleep after that.

Cravings: Fresh fruit, peanut butter cups, Honey Nut Cheerios. 

What I Miss: Flexibility. Popping out of bed.

Best Moment This Week: Going out on maternity leave. Thursday and Friday were great days to get things done before baby comes. Also, date night with Ian on Saturday evening was a true highlight. We went out to Bricktops, sat on the patio, and had a wonderful dinner together. Maybe our last one out for a while!

Looking Forward To: Calling my family to tell them it's time!
