Baby #2 Bumpdate: 38 Weeks

We are in October, yay!! Not only is this my favorite month but it will be Lainey's birth month too. I am so excited. At my appointment today I was 2 cm / 50% effaced. My doctor said she did not think the baby would come this week.

How Far Along:  38 Weeks!

Baby's Size:  A leek. Really? I saw another site that said pumpkin. I like that better.

Maternity Clothes: Very few left that fit!

Movement: Constant body rolls. Lots of hiccups. I can tell she has run out of room. She is trying to stretch out in there and it looks so funny from the outside.

Sleep: Good, just hard to flip from one side to the other. Sometimes it takes me a while to fall asleep after a bathroom break, but mostly sleeping good.

Symptoms: Braxton hicks, the random shooting pains, waddling, leg cramps and restless legs at night. I am done with stairs. Elevators are my friend. Grocery shopping feels like P90X. By the end of the day I am exhausted and uncomfortable.

Food Aversions/Cravings:  Honeycrisps! Cambry is loving them too.

Best Moment this Week: Getting my hair highlighted! It had been way too long. Plus it is relaxing and nice to have a little me time.

What I miss: Being able to move or bend down and pick something up easily. I also miss being able to go shopping for a cute new outfit. I guess I still CAN do that, but who wants to buy a new cute fall maternity outfit at 38 weeks??

What I am Looking Forward to: We are going to try and take some pumpkin patch pictures this weekend. Hopefully we get some good ones.

Goals: I don't really know. Most things are done. I could get super ambitious and make a bunch of freezer meals...but no. I am too tired for that :)

Still looking fantastic! Those last few weeks sure are tiring.. and seem to last forever. Can't wait to 'meet' her soon! :)
