Feels like life is at a STANDSTILL…
How far along? 40 weeks on Sunday June 10, 2012
Weight gain/loss: +25.8
Size of baby: the size of a baby!
Sleep: besides getting up 3-4 times to pee not too shabby
Food cravings/aversions: I am sick of cravings and aversions.
Pregnancy Signs: I am irritable and cranky like no other. I hate that feeling.
Labor Signs: Tuesday night we thought was IT. I had been feeling really crampy down low and tightening in my belly all day long. The tightenings were causing a little more pain then they had been with the Braxton Hicks contractions. It got worse after dinner so we decided to time them but nothing was very regular. Went to bed and I was just so uncomfortable with the tightenings and cramps so Matias and I got up and did more timing…the tightenings were about every 5 min so we called the doc. They assured all was OK to stay home unless the contractions got to where I could not function. It has been like this on and off since then. bleh. My legs have radiating pain down them as well.
Movement: still a busy little guy
What I miss: WINE, arctic zero, biking, running, blading, my body, etc…
What I am looking forward to: labor…NOT…but coming home with our new little friend and continuing to grow this lovely family
Best moment this week: Mommy got into town last Thursday. I LOVE love love having her here…makes the waiting not as bad…I would pretty much be going crazy during the day without her. She cooks, cleans, WEEDS, tidys, runs errands with me, loves, etc.
Milestones: Monday’s appointment had another internal check…2cm dilated and paper thin effacement…and baby P is low low low…soooo not sure what he is waiting for?! But I guess the further along I am before labor the easier/quicker it will be? T-minus 5 more nights until induction on Jun 20 at 1am.
Weekly Wisdom: Treat everything you do like a transition…this makes for a more efficient life.
Going the Distance: baby P has swam: 469.96 miles, biked: 1276.48 miles, walk/ran: 114.20 miles, and done: 51 hot yogs classes
