38 Weeks

How far along? 38w
Gender: Girl
Weight Gain? At least 40 pounds by now, I believe a lot of the last couple pounds I put on was entirely due to the swelling I am experiencing at my feet, ankles, and legs, I mean total sausage toes, kankles, etc. by the end of the day.  None of my shoes fit well anymore and I've resorted to moccasins pretty much every day.
Maternity Clothes?  90% maternity at all times.  Lots of Joe's shirts & sweat shirts because none of my own comfy clothes fit me well anymore. 
Stretch Marks? None!
Belly button in or out?  Officially out!
Sleep:  Thankfully Unisom is pregnancy friendly otherwise I'd never get a full night of rest.  Not that I even get a FULL night of rest when I take it, but it definitely helps.  I will usually take it maybe once a week or twice a week to get a couple of good nights of sleep then I spend the other nights tossing and turning, up using the bathroom, trying to shift into a position where I can breathe, trying to shift into a position where my nose is not stuffed up, etc. etc.
Best moment this week:  Getting our maternity photos back from our second shoot!  I'm so glad we did two shoots because both were different and both turned out amazing.  I will be sharing a photo dump later in the week, if you're interested now you can check a few out on Instagram.
Symptoms:  Difficulty breathing, rib pain, back pain, swollen feet, carpel tunnel/tingling in hands, RLS at night, heartburn, exhaustion, congestion.  Luckily all things that are not serious!  Pretty much just totally uncomfortable most of the time.
Miss Anything?  I am ready to have my body back.  I LOVE being pregnant and I have enjoyed every moment of it, especially since my was so smooth, but I am ready to be able to stomach sleep again and just be comfortable again.  
Movement?  Movement is starting to slow down somewhat as she is pretty much out of room at this point. 
Queasy or sick?  Noting at all!
Looking forward to? A 3 day weekend so I can get some extra rest!  Thankfully we are off Monday for Presidents Day and I am planning to take full advantage of my couch and my sweats!
Signs of Labor?  Nothing yet.  I will be happy if she makes it to 40 weeks, we want her as cooked as possible.

  1. It's funny. Before pregnancy I was a stomach sleeper. After my first was born, I couldn't sleep that way because I was nursing and "the girls" couldn't handle the pressure. By the time it all subsided I was so accustomed to my back/side from having forced myself to sleep that way because of pregnancy. I hope you have better luck than me lol.
