I guess there’s only a few more weeks of my ivf dream blog left. I hope this blog has been helping you. Giving you hope and info.
How far along? Week 38
Total weight gain: 31 pounds or 2 stone 3lb. Stayed the same this week.
Started at 143 lbs. Am now 174 and and am 2 lbs under max recommended weight range, which 18-26 lbs at 38 weeks.
Maternity clothes? Of course! My maternity tops are starting to get less long than they were! I’ve wearing the same tube skirt, leggings and one pair of jeans constantly! Enjoying strolling around house in t shirt and pants!
Loads still by not as much as last week. Slower and stronger.
Best moment this week: Workmen finished their work in house!
Got my toenails shellacked and bikini line done. Pain. Pain. Pain.
Miss anything? Long walks and runs. Baths. Glass of wine. More than one cup of coffee.
Belly button in or out? Stays in until baby pushes out and then it squirms out and goes back in…ew.
Wedding rings on or off: Off. Will keep them off now as not bringing valuables or even handbag into hospital. Safer at home.
Happy or moody most of the time: happy and shocked baby is going to be here soon.
Looking forward: final check ups with consultant this week. Mother coming to stay. Enjoying sitting in house before arrival!
Food cravings: No.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No.
Gender: not finding out. But we are both convinced it’s a boy!
Symptoms: Tiredness, movements, tightening of vagina, baby hiccuping and kicking a lot. Pressure on my bladder. Swollen fingers. Heartburn came back badly this week.
Labour signs: None.
Until, next week!
