How Far Along: 39 weeks 4 days
How Big is Baby: Baby Keytar is the size of a mini watermelon! I really don’t know exactly how big though – could be anywhere from 7-8 lbs I guess, but I don’t really feel like he/she is 8 lbs., but I’ve never done this before so I really have no frame of reference.
Gender: Not finding out, but we’re sure it’s a boy.
Baby’s Milestones This Week: Baby Keytar is still developing fat and the outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.
Total Weight Gain: about 26 lbs. I lost a lb. this past week, which I hear is normal right before birth.
Who We’ve Told About the Pregnancy: Mostly everyone knows.
Maternity Clothes: Mostly, but i have sundresses that aren’t really maternity dresses that I am comfortable in – like the one in today’s photo.
Stretch Marks: nope, nothing new since the few on my breasts that happened early on in the pregnancy, but they’re pretty light.
Sleep: I slept better last night than I have in forever! I listened to an 8 hour long deep sleep ambient music meditation on youtube with headphones. I had been sleeping terribly and needed to try something new. I also added two throw pillows from the couch to my situation – one under my arms and one between my knees. They’re smaller than bed pillows and were much more comfortable and easier to move when I switched sides throughout the night.
Best Moment of the Week: Realizing that everything is ready for Baby Keytar’s arrival and that he/she is doing awesome in there.
Food Cravings: Anything and everything! Sushi!
Food Aversions: just sick of eggs, quesadillas, and the same old shit I eat all the time.
Symptoms: tired, carpal tunnel (although massage is really helping that!!!!), large and in-charge belly
Labor Signs: Yesterday I started feeling really heavy in my pelvic area. I get some sharp groin pains here and there, mostly at night when I’m standing. I was a tiny bit nauseas yesterday and was having light period-like cramps and my back hurt a couple times.
Belly Button In or Out: out
Wedding Rings On or Off: Off
Mood: starting to get a tiny bit nervous and anxious but overall, feeling great!
What I’m Looking Forward To: meeting Baby Keytar! But I’m holding out until Tuesday for libra, which is crazy, I know, but I’m still trying!
What I Miss: eating whatever I want to
Nesting: Yup! The house is ready for baby’s arrival! We’re keeping things clean and sitting around drawing on blank onesies. I made this sleep sack yesterday with Phish lyrics and hubby’s working on a onesie with a van Gogh image and Phish lyrics that’s gonna look awesome.
