38 Weeks...

How Far Along: 38 Weeks!

Size of baby: Baby C is around 19.5 inches long and weighing around 6.8 pounds.
(all according to babycenter.com)

Total Weight Gain: 36 pounds! Yikes! Up 2 pounds in a week!!
& I feel HUGE.

Maternity Clothes: Still wearing a mix of everything, although mostly maternity. Just regular jeans.  I'm at the point where I don't feel cute in anything .  My favorite shirt is a long sleeve black shirt from Gap Maternity.  I kind of wish I could just wear it every day.

Gender: 
BOY!! Baby Cullen!!

Movement: Feeling lots of little feet kicks up high, they are not in my ribs or uncomfortable.  I still just love feeling him move :)

Sleep: Sleep is still pretty good. I can only sleep comfortably on my left side. 

What I miss: This past week I've felt about as large as a house and I'm kinda missing being in shape, working out and wearing regular clothes.  I want to look and feel good about myself again and I know that is far off.  I'm sure all these feelings are normal.  And nothing brings a smile to my faster than just thinking about my baby boy.

Cravings: Nothing in particular, all food is still appealing to me! Hence the weight gain! ha!

Symptoms: Still having braxton hicks, although not very often.  I have some ligament pain and sharp pains down there at times as well.  After sitting at work and then standing to walk, it's a bit uncomfortable but that's expected.  Cramping has started as well, not often or for long periods of time though.

We had a doctor appointment this afternoon, no progress has been made and doc is just sticking to his word that Culley could come any time.
Although technically he could come anytime between now and 42 WEEKS....
I really want to have him sooner than later! 
I have no patience!!

What I’m looking forward to:
Meeting our little man!!!

weekly fuzzy phone pics...



I finally got my iron-ons from Etsy and made these two bibs and two onesies!


Cullen has the hiccups right now! He has them usually 1-2 times a day.  Poor little baby.

Perfectly Imperfect said...

The last two weeks were HARD for me (37-39) because I felt huge and hot and miserable. But trust me. It gets better!

And I know you won't believe me, but you look awesome. And not huge.

Meg said...

Poor little pumpkin with hiccups--boo to hiccups.

Courtney B said...

Oh you look soooo cute preggo! (even if you don't feel it:) So excited for you!
Can't wait for you to meet baby Cullen and to see pictures of him!

Kaycee said...

Oh my goodness girl!! You're SO close :)!! I know you're beyond excited.
The iron ons are GREAT!

Lori said...

Those feeling are totally normal! I was starting to feel those too, keep in mind I went at 37 1/2 weeks. Just then I had started to feel like I want my body back, and I want to feel comfortable again. So if I would have went to 40 weeks, I am sure I would have been miserable! Your so close, I will miss these pregnancy posts, but I dont care at all because then I'll get to see baby posts!!!!

MLBarajas said...

You look great! I love your shirt!

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

You look so great!! I hope I only gain what you've gained but I'm already feeling gigantic!

Pilates was difficult when I constantly felt like I was going to fall forward!

I love the iron-ons! They are precious! I can't believe you are sooo close to meeting your little prince! I can't wait to see his pics!

Ocean Dreams said...

Aww, hope your cramping subsides but maybe that is a good thing because that means C. is almost here! You look gorgeous in your ruffled top, what a great choice! Hope you are feeling well today and that the sweet baby's hiccups subside soon. xoxo.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Jessica said...

I know you don't feel it, but I must tell you... You look great Annie!

Mrs EyeCanSee said...
