It's all been feeling more "REAL" since I've had all my baby showers. Receiving all the love and support, as well as everything that is cute in this world for Baby has shook me into reality. "Joanna, you're about to have a baby soon!!" Say WHAAAT?
Baby Shower #3- My amazing co-workers really outdid themselves throwing an amazing shower in the library for me and Tonya (another teacher who is due a few days before me). They decorated everything so cute and planned out a yummy menu to feed my growing belly. I feel so loved by all of them!
|Check out my swollen ankles. HUGE!|
I have one more shower this Friday which Hubby's co-workers will be throwing. I can't even believe all the love we have surrounding us. I'm just dumbfounded that Baby isn't born yet but he/she is already spoiled rotten.
How far along? 37 weeks. Full term now, which means if Baby were to be born now, everything would be A-OK!
Maternity clothes? Since I am at home all day now I'm rocking PJs and workout clothes. So comfy!
Stretch marks? Still have a few only on my left hip.
Sleep: Oh how I miss sleeping on my back!! I am sleeping pretty well through the night, but I wake up with terrible kinks all over. I should've invested in that Snoogle.
Best moment this week: Celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary and just enjoying my time off from work.
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my back, moving around, reaching my feet, rolling over, yadda yadda yadda.
Movement: Baby is making those weird alien type movements since it's so tight in there now. I feel bad saying this but sometimes it's so painful that I cry for Baby to calm down.
Food cravings: Burger King Chicken Sandwiches with extra mayo and a chocolate chip cookie to chase it.
Weight Gain: I decided to bring this back once more....It's shameful but it has to be said....48 lbs. Yes, I've gained almost 50 pounds!!! HOLY SHIT. Excuse my french but...wow.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I feel sick after lunch each day, yet it doesn't stop me from eating.
Gender predictions: I still feel like it's a girl.
Labor Signs: So many braxton hicks! My hubby is starting to get nervous.
Symptoms: Yes. Having soooo many symptoms!! Over it.
Belly Button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? I miss my rings!
