Happy 4th of July & 37 Week Update





Pregnancy Update

His Size: Honeydew Melon

Weight Gain: 22 lbs

Symptoms: So tired. So so so tired. It might be because I haven't been able to sleep through the night, but I never knew someone could sleep so much! I guess I might as well sleep as much while I can :) Still haven't had any swelling in my feet/legs yet. Although I've definitely had hip pain and some "period cramps" this past weekend which were not fun. My lower back gets sore every now and then but nothing like the the ache I get in my hips.

Cravings: Everything? Can that be a thing? Haha! Last week I ate ice cream almost everyday :) 

Movement: Pretty much the same. They have been waking me up at night though. It's weird how much stronger they get as the due date gets closer and closer. The other night I was having a dream that he was running in my tummy and I woke up to these deep kicks in my ribs. They were so far up there it felt like he could have touched my heart... literally hahah

Weird Moment/s: This might be TMI... but I've some consistent lactation since I was about 28 weeks pregnant. When it first happened I was completely freaked out. My doc reassured me it was normal but that doesn't make it any less weird.

Best Moment/s: We had a baby shower last weekend and it fell on mine and Wyatt's 1 year anniversary. It was like deja vu having a lot of the same people together in the same place, but now to celebrate our son. We brought home all this baby stuff and it all just felt more real. The thought of it all is too big to think about sometimes & makes me really emotional. But we are so grateful for all of the love and support we've had. Our baby boy is already so loved <3

I hope you all are enjoying your extended weekend! Have a fun and safe 4th of July :)
