Baby Waterman: Week 38



How Far Along? 38 weeks

Size of the Baby: Winter Melon (19.6 inches, 6.61 pounds according to The Bump app)

Gender: BOY!!

Weight Gain: +30 pounds

Maternity Clothes: Yes!
Nursery: I think that his nursery is almost done!  While Mark was here, he hung the curtains which was one of the last things that I needed to check off of our to-do list.  I cannot believe that he will be living in that room so soon!

Movement: Lots and lots of giant movements!  While the contractions have made it difficult at times to pinpoint what are his movements and what are contractions, when I lay down at night there is no mistaking him moving all around.  (Especially when his daddy wants to kiss all over my belly--that makes him go crazy!)

Symptoms: Still having contractions on and off, LOTS of indigestion--I feel like I am surviving off of Tums and Zantac.

Sleep: No sleep for me--luckily, I have been able to grab a few naps during the day with Elli that has made me stay somewhat sane!

Cravings/Aversions: The only thing that I have been craving is an ice-cold Coke.  The carbonation makes me feel a little better with my indigestion and it just tastes good!  I have a feeling that I am going to have a hard time giving up sodas again after this pregnancy.

What I Miss: Nothing!

Best Moment of the Week: This week has just been overall surreal for us.  Everyday I think, this is the last Thursday, Friday, etc. without him being here with us and it just takes me aback every time I think that.  We have tried to enjoy our time together and with just Elli.  On Saturday, Tom and I went to see Beauty and the Beast (so good, by the way!) and we both were stunned thinking that that was our last date without having a baby!  I have loved getting to spend my days while Tom is at work loving on Elli and giving her lots of attention.  I am trying not to think that she is going to get less attention when he is here or that she may resent us for bringing a baby home.  I really want her to still feel loved and cared for and most importantly that she is not being replaced.  She has been our priority for 8 wonderful years and she is most definitely still an important member of our family!

Looking Forward To: Seeing what our baby looks like when he arrives!!
