Well, this could be my last BUMPdate. I can't believe that we're at this point already. There are some days when I feel like I've been pregnant forever but for the most part I feel like time is flown by really fast.
(I'm 39 weeks, 6 days today)
Size of the baby?
The size of a watermelon (19-22 inches, and about 6.5-7lbs.)
Total Weight Gain/Loss?
30 lbs. I'm right at my goal weight.
Leggings. Maternity Jeans. Long Tank Tops. Maternity Long-Sleeve T-Shirts.
None other than the one that I think formed where my belly piercing was. I'm not 100% sure if it's a stretch mark though.
Finding out (yesterday) that I'm 2 cm. dilated, 75% effaced, her head is way down, and during my exam my doctor discovered "bloody show!" I had a non-stress test which showed that her heart rate is perfect and much to my surprise, the monitor showed that I'm having contractions that are 2 minutes apart ---but I wasn't feeling them! My midwife said it's a bit odd that I wasn't feeling them since it's only my first pregnancy but she said everyone is different when it comes to what they feel and what their tolerance is.
So basically, it's almost go time! We scheduled an induction for Wednesday, January 30th at my last appointment and now that things are moving along naturally, I couldn't be happier.
She is moving around SO much which really amazes me because I don't know how she has any room in there to move. My stomach is so hard all the time. We've made a few recordings of her movements but last night was probably the best recording- we saw an actual foot pop right out of my stomach!
Anything making you queasy or sick?
What I miss?
Being able to turn over in bed without feeling like I need to be hoisted and being able to get my shoes on without being out of breath.
Lots of pressure in my pelvic region, some hip pain, a little bit of back pain during contractions. I didn't start feeling my contractions until after my appointment. I think the exam got things moving along a little.
I started having some irregular contractions.
Belly Button In or Out?
Wedding rings On or Off?
They're on! No swelling so far.
Waking up twice every night now to go to the bathroom. Rolling over and changing positions is nearly impossible without help now.
What I'm looking forward to?
Going into labor so we can finally meet her!
