40 Weeks: Pregnancy Update

40 weeks

How far along? 40 weeks and 3 days – This baby is officially LATE as of Sunday!

Baby is the size of a … Jackfruit! Baby is about 18.9 to 20.9 inches long and weighs about 6.2 to 9.2 pounds.

How has (s)he changed this week? Not much has changed last week. Baby is just growing bigger and stronger!

So far, I’ve gained … 39 – 40 pounds. I didn’t weigh myself this week.

Sleep has been … Bad! I couldn’t fall asleep last night until 1am and was wide awake at 5:15am! Somehow I’m not that tired today.

I feel … Uncomfortable and huge, and I don’t expect that to change until after the baby comes!

I miss … Nothing at the moment

Craving … Carbs galoreeee

Keep me away from … Nothing!

Symptoms?  Frequent bathroom breaks, shortness of breath, baby brain, Braxton Hicks contractions, fatigue, pelvic discomfort, heartburn

Gender? Boy! Or girl. Who knows!

Maternity clothes? Everything and even maternity clothes are getting a little tight!

Movement? The little one has periods of deep sleep but when the baby’s awake, he or she definitely lets me know it!

Exercise? Daily walks to get this baby moving!

Healthy eats? Lots of fruit, veggies, smoothies

Splurges? Chinese food

Wedding rings on or off?  Off – lots of water retention these days….

My best moment was … Lots of one-on-one relaxation time with Rich before our lives change forever – for the better! =)

Looking forward to … Finally meeting the peanut soon! Come onnnnn, baby!
