Baby E’s Stats 

Baby: A durian? No clue what that even is! She weighs about the same as a pineapple and is over 17 inches long! She’s keeping her eyes open when she’s awake & is coordinating her sucking, breathing, and  swallowing! Looking less and less like an alien & more like a sweet little baby!!

Sleep: No. This belly is uncomfortable & I’m up to pee 2 or 3 times a night. I dread changing positions while I’m sleeping so usually one side of my body goes numb…

Clothing: Dresses, leggings, & maxi skirts. Found a pair of Liz Lange dress pants at the thrift store for $3. They fit perfect for about 5 minutes or until I sit down, then they are baggy but they were nearly free & I can live with them for the next month!

Food Cravings/Aversions: Pepper! I have wanted it on everything this entire pregnancy and that isn’t changing. Last night, I was completely stuffed but yet I scooped myself some more potatoes…Mike said it’s only because I couldn’t just eat the pepper straight from the shaker. He’s funny.. #butnoseriously he was right.

Symptoms: Not going to go into too much detail, but let’s just say baby girl has to be getting herself into position. Pressure & sharp pains are now a regular occurrence, especially when I go from sitting to walking or lifting something heavy. My feet are disgustingly swollen all the time and my lower back just aches.

Movement: Oh yes! Some people say she’ll slow down towards the end because she is running out of room, but I haven’t noticed that really. She still feels like she’s doing flips in there!

Doctor’s Appointment: This week!

Gender: GIRL!! We are overcome with joy! If you missed our announcement, you can see it here. She will be our little Emma.

Best Moment of the Week: Hubby and my step-dad put up her crib!! It’s perfect! And then the next night M decided he wanted to paint her room. Ha. So now the crib is in the middle of the room with a giant sheet over it while he paints. I’m excited to make her room special! I’ve been on the hunt for some antique frames to use for a gallery wall & I’m still trying to figure out what to do about a dresser or furniture. The room is SMALL so it’s limiting!

Thoughts: “I am loving being pregnant, I really am!”—that’s what I wrote last week. And then like a switch, I’m feeling more and more uncomfortable & that statement is beginning to change a little. I still love being pregnant and don’t really want it to end, but I am starting to understand what people mean when they say they are just done with carrying a baby. It’s really tough work during the last few months. The belly is huge and heavy, the feet are huge, the weird pains are more frequent. I have my final shower in 4 weeks, so as long as she stays in long enough for that and then for me to wash and get all those things situated, I’ll be a-ok! But, I also know my plans are nothing like God’s. M & I are praying that His will is done, so we know that no matter when she comes, it will be perfect timing.
