How far along: 38 weeks
How big is baby: size of a spaghetti squash, probably around 7 pounds and 20 inches
Symptoms: she finally dropped last weekend so not having her bum in my ribs has been nice. However, it has increased other things like cramps, Braxton Hicks contractions, and even less room for my bladder LOL I’m still having heartburn if I don’t remember to take the Pepcid
Movement: her movements slowed down over the weekend, I think because I was pretty active and there was a lot of noise. Since we’ve been home her movements have picked up again
Sleep: not great…last night I had to get up 4 times to take Tums because my heartburn was so bad. I get up more to use the bathroom and around 5am my sinus drainage gets so bad I have trouble breathing which keeps me awake. I’m really looking forward to some good sleep after she’s with her dads
Food cravings? nothing lately
Anything making you queasy or sick? not really, except just being towards the end of pregnancy and it being hot this week
Next appointment: Next in office appointment is on Monday. We’ll do a non-stress test and a cervical check to make sure that everything is good to go with the induction. They usually like the cervix to be at least 2cm dilated and softening.
