Due Date

Monday, August 8, 2016

Woah! How did that happen? Today is my due date. I think pregnancy can go really fast for others, for example, maybe you think time went by really fast for me. However, when it's your preganncy, not so much. In my case anyway, I have been feeling so anxious towards the end that it has felt like an eternity.
Any who, I thought I would do an update today in celebration of my due date. Is this something we celebrate? Ha! Happy Due Date my sweet baby boy! 

How far along:
40 Weeks 

Baby is the size of a:

Weight gain: 
40 lbs. At 36 weeks I had gained 30lbs. 

Maternity clothes:
I am literally washing and wearing. It's too hot and humid to wear anything but flowy dresses, but I've struggled with wearing pretty dresses and sandals that are comfortable. I've figured out I could wear my Keds with some of my dresses and it looks decent. I literally went for a walk at the commons one night with a pretty flowy dress and black sneakers , just so I could be comfortable. I probably looked like a fool. I am still wearing sandals which is a good sign of no swollen feet. 

I am sleeping, that's all that matters, right? I usually wake up between 5-6, but stay in bed. Then take an early morning nap before getting my day started. 

Miss anything:
I miss eating Ceaser salads, cold cuts and wearing my old clothes. I also miss being able to paint my nails appropriately. Celebrating our due date today with a professional pedicure! 

There is so much movement! Lucas moves all day everyday and it has started to hurt sometimes. It's so hard to get it on video but I have managed to get some on my Snapchat (vero_var) and our YouTube (FiveMinutesandUs).

No crazy cravings, still loving bread, notice the 10 lbs weight increase in 4 weeks. 

Labor signs: 
None yet. I do feel crazy intense pressure in my lower pelvic area. 

I have had no sickness, nor nausea. It's been a pretty healthy and blessed pregnancy. 

Looking forward to:
Wearing normal clothes, not needing Joses help for getting up sometimes, not being so out of breath so much and holding Lucas in my arms and never letting go. 

I had my 39 week appointment last Wednesday, doctor said I was 1cm dilated, 50% effaced and she could feel the baby's head. Whatever that means. 

I have an appointment tomorrow for an ultrasound, if all is well they will let him be, if fluids are low they will induce. I'm excited for the ultrasound because I want to see how much he weighs. The app says 7.25 pounds, but I highly doubt that. Have you seen my belly? Also, Doctor estimated just from looking and feeling, an 8 pounder. 

We will see. I basically spent the whole weekend walking and spending quality time with Emily and Jose. We also watched the Olympics, duh. How was your weekend?

As for cold cuts, my doc said they're fine as long as the meat is fresh (which why wouldn't I be eating fresh meat anyway.. yuck!)
