I've been feeling very unpretty lately. RDog and I are trying to do some "last things as a couple" activities. One of of those things was our last trip to the beach as a twosome. We went for a sunset walk Saturday night and RDog got in paparazzi mode. H got some great shots that made me feel a teenie bit pretty again.
How far along: 38 weeks
Development: My baby app tells me our little monkey is the size of a bunch of celery but I feel that I am growing a much larger baby that that.
Movement: ALL THE TIME. This little guy never stops. On one hand I never really worry about kick counts because if I stop and think to myself, "when was the last time I felt him move?", he will immediately give me a big thump. It's bad because those big thumps hurt.
Maternity Clothes: I'm rotating five maternity dresses right now and a couple of skirts and tanks.
Stretch Marks: The stretch marks have arrived. They started off last week with a few tiny purple marks and expand each day. My stomach is becoming a purple road map and it makes me sad.
Best moment of my week: I've had two great weekends. My parents came up for one last pre-baby visit two weeks ago. Last weekend was spent doing some last activities before parenthood; a movie date, beach walk, marshmallow cookout and pool day with friends.
Worst moment: A TMI moment; my first cervical check. Ugggg, apparently, I have a sensitive cervix . . . not fun.
Sleep: Not so hot lately. The best way for me to sleep lately has been sitting up and that is not an easy feat.
Miss Anything: Sleeping
Food Cravings: Popsicles
Gender: Baby Boy
Symptoms: Baby boy is pushing so hard on my stomach, some days I wonder if I am going to bruise.
Belly Button: It's out
Rings: On - not swollen yet!
Moody or Happy: Pretty moody.
Looking Forward: To meeting my little guy. There's a full moon tomorrow night; hopefully that will get something going.
KDot: I love exclamation points and toast, sales and kitties, books and RDog. I teach big kids stuff, make up silly songs, and dance in my kitchen. I take a picture of my clothes everyday, but I really am shy. Welcome to my life and style journey as a wannabe fashionista.
