Appointments: Our doctor ordered an extra ultrasound because I have been measuring ahead for a few of my appointments. They wanted to make sure I didn't have extra fluid. Good News: no extra fluid, she is just a tad bit larger than average :)
Baby size: 17 inches long and 4.5 pounds. She weighs as much as a pineapple.
Weight gain: 2-3 LBS
Belly button: In. And I think I may avoid it popping out!
Maternity clothes: Yes! I also just bought a few other shirts to hold me over for this last month and a half.
Gender: Baby Girl :)
Movement: She has picked up more of a schedule when it comes to moving around. She is pretty active in the AM and in the evenings. I can see her move across my tummy all the time!
Sleep: Sleep has been hard to get once again! I find my hips really hurt while I'm on one side and I continuously toss and turn. Doesn't make for a very peaceful nights sleep.
Food aversions: None.
Labor signs: No! But I've been feeling some stronger BH contractions.
Swelling: Still some swelling and in the mornings when I wake up I can feel my hands are swollen with the fluid in my joints. I feel as if I have giant paws!
Nursery Progress: I work on this a little each week. Trying to wrap it up before our maternity pictures this week!
Best moment this week: Celebrating my baby girl at our church baby shower :)
Non-baby-related favorite moment this week: Finishing up my Christmas items and counting down until it's CHRISTMAS!
What I miss: My family up north. As the holidays get close along with my baby girl's due date...I have been missing my family like crazy!
What I'm looking forward to: The holidays, spending more time with friends, and the arrival of my baby girl!
