How far along? 40 weeks = FULLY COOKED
How big is baby? I’m guessing bigger than Gabe, who was 6 lbs 13 oz.
Total weight gain: +31 lbs
Updates: Still pregnant. Baby still not named. Lots and lots of contractions. Many times I thought I was going into labor, but was not.
Anxious about: Having to be induced and/or the baby not coming before Mike starts the new position July 1st with no time off. Being induced scares me because I liked (as much as you can like labor) laboring at home for 12 hours last time then going in when I was in enough pain to not care that I was at a hospital and get all nervous. Having the baby later means I’ll have less time with Mike at home to help me adjust to taking care of a baby and juggling Gabe’s needs.
Excited about: Meeting this baby! And having a smaller belly.
Feeling: Pregnant. About 75% of the time, I’m content being pregnant and enjoying this time with Mike and Gabe (Mike ended one job and has had the whole week off, so we’ve been just having a nice, quiet week of playing and shopping and eating). Then 25% of the time I’m like, “Just come out so your father will be home to help me, child!”
Exercise: Taking it easier so I don’t tire myself for labor, which is allegedly going to start sometime.
Sleep: Napping daily and up every few hours at night. Nothing terrible, though.
Movement: Rolling around more and head butting my pelvic bone every evening. I’ll take that as an attempt to escape.
- Gabe was born at 2 am on his due date. This baby is clearly not interested in paying attention to due dates.
- Our car broke down on Father’s Day, which has actually been a good distraction from not going into labor. I mean, being on the side of the highway in super hot weather wasn’t exactly good, but we were able to sell it on Craigslist to someone who wants to try to fix it. RIP, beloved Honda Accord! You were so good to us.
- Time moves more slowly for your last week before your due date (every day felt like three days), so I can only imagine that time will stretch even more in the coming days. I found a way to slow down time! Just be really super pregnant.
