Bumpdate 2.0: 38 Weeks



Due Date: December 1, 2017...but we've officially scheduled a c-section for Wednesday, November 29.

How far along?: 38 weeks

Gender: It's a BOY!

Name: Sterling Alan

Total weight gain:  No change in the "official" scale at the doctor's office this past week...still up ~35 lbs. It seems like it's an every-other-week thing with weight gain, so I guess we'll see if I've gained more at this week's OB appointment. I'm still holding out for that "you lose weight at the very end" promise...

Stretch marks?: None that I can see.

Symptoms: Nothing new to report...just a BIG 'OLE BELLY that is getting very heavy to carry around {and difficult to make comfortable when sleeping...or sitting...or standing}.

Maternity clothes?:  All maternity clothes, all the time...and I'm down to selecting only the stretchiest maternity clothes!

Sleep:  There's never enough...but maybe it's just time to start preparing for/remembering what it's like to have a newborn in the house!

Cravings:  Nothing new. Still want all the sweets, all the time...but I don't think that's necessarily a symptom of being pregnant!

Mood: I've been sick with this terrible cough/icky drainage in my head...so I know I've been super cranky and whiny. 

Movement: This little dude has been getting hiccups at least once or twice per day. It's so funny to feel {and see} my belly move with every tiny little hiccup.

Best Moment of the Week: We received a few of the personalized items for Baby Sterling in the mail this week {his name blanket from Rae Rae, the big sign for the wall in his room}...it's becoming more and more real {like actually setting in our minds!} that he's going to be here before we know it!

Worst Moment of the Week: Huston spiked a fever in the middle of the night on Tuesday, so we got him in to see Dr. Diana first thing on Monday morning. Turns out, the poor little guy has a double ear infection. Not only did he not feel well, but he also missed his Thanksgiving feast at school.  :(

Wedding Rings:  Off for the past couple of weeks...and it makes me so sad. This swelling stuff is for real though...I'm not about to force my rings on and risk having to cut them off.

Belly Button: In...but pretty much flat!

Looking Forward To: Getting our little family 100% healthy so we'll be in tip-top shape to meet our newest addition!
