Holy crap, is it already September?? I'm not even sure where August went. We have about 48 days (give or take) until we meet our little girl and I couldn't be happier!!
Size of Baby: Depending which source you look at, baby girl is the size of a pineapple or a honeydew melon- wow. She weighs a little over 4 pounds and has passed the 17-inch mark.
Sleep: Sleep is the same, some nights are better than others. I usually only have to get up once during the night for the bathroom, but the rest of the night is spent trying to get comfortable. I'm sure Steve and Sadie are ready to throw my body pillow out and take back their portion of the bed!
Movement: Still a lot of movement! She is most active on my left side and up by my ribs. I love trying to figure out what body parts are poking out- was that a foot, hand, elbow....?
Symptoms: Nothing new in this department heart burn and swelling are the only symptoms I really have right now and they aren't that bad. I've also had a couple of hot flashes lately.
Best moment of the week: Getting her room organized and working on our birth plan.
What I am looking forward to: Maternity pictures, finishing up child birth class, starting breast feeding class and of course meeting this little girl!
Weekly wisdom: Our childbirth teacher told us one of the hardest things about pregnancy and birth is that no one can tell you how long you'll be pregnant or how long your labor will be....I think this is so true- especially for a type A planner like me!
