How Far Along: 40 weeks
Size of baby: According to babycenter.com Baby Bangert is the size of a small pumpkin and about 20 inches long from head to heel. BUT…I had an ultrasound a few weeks ago and they are estimating Baby Bangert at 8 1/2 lbs already!
Maternity Clothes: Pretty much ALL maternity…minus a few t-shirts from the hubby!
Gender: It’s a girl!!! And yesterday (6.16.11, the due date!) we FINALLY picked out her name!! Once she arrives we will share it with everyone.
Movement: She is a busy little girl, too bad she can’t just kick her way out of my tummy! I feel her moving around all throughout the day. I love it though…there is a little life inside me!
Sleep: Eh, it’s better than what it was the past few weeks. I’m up a lot (think potty breaks!), but getting better about being able to fall back asleep.
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach, a bigger selection of clothes, sleep in general, and buying regular clothes (the maternity section needs to expand)!
Cravings: This week was smores pop tarts, made for a good morning snack!
Symptoms: Feeling well for the most part, just very achy & tired by the end of the the day. And of course very anxious for this little girl to make her arrival.
Best Moment this week: Kyle and I have spent some great time together lately. His homework load has been a lot lighter and to say I’ve been enjoying more time with him is an understatement. Can’t wait till he’s done with school in December! Oh and we got a few new rocker/recliners for our living room! It was time to move on from our “hand me down” chairs we’ve had since before we were married.
Today is our 40 week appointment. Not a whole lot to report yet, but hopefully will know more after our appointment this afternoon. If you would have told me 3 weeks ago that I would make it PAST my due date I wouldn’t have believed you. But as everyone tells me, babies have their own agenda! I took the day off today to do a few things and just relax. When I left work yesterday I left as if I wasn’t coming back until after maternity leave, we’ll see if this little girl cooperates!
