Total weight gain: "you know that I'm a beast" was the first line that came into my head.. points to whoever can tell me where that came from. But uuummmm... I've gained 35 lbs. Yeahhhh hot mama.
Maternity clothes: Sick of em! I'd rather just wear a sports bra and sofie shorts, but when I have to be decent I throw on whatever fits at this point. Yuck. I have been wanting to buy all these cute SC or Bama colored dresses and pretty tops (cuz that's how we dress for football in the SEC) but I can't for two reasons: 1. Broke broke broke. 2. Who knows what size I'll be wearing!
Stretch marks: Oh yeah. They're multiplying. It's not pretty. Sometimes it makes me cry, but most of the time I don't care. I'll throw some Maderma on there and hope for the best, but it just comes with the territory.
Sleep: A total of two hours MAYBE last night. I'm just plain uncomfortable. Who can sleep comfortably at 39 weeks pregnant? There's no hope. Suck it up and drive on. Can't wait to sleep on my belly again! Mark my words.. he'll be up at 5 every morning. Because I sure have been for the past three weeks.
Best moment this week: It was a week ago today actually, but when the doc told me I was 2.5cm dialated. I'm pretty sure nothing else has happened or we may have even gone backwards since I've been so comfortable.. umm.. down there, but I was thrilled to hear that at the time!
How about worst moment of the week? Can we add that in this time? We'll go with hearing any form of the following question: "Have the baby yet?" "You're still here?" "Any contractions yet?" 500 times a day. OMMMG. I cannot handle it any longer. I know people mean well, but seriously? I can't be the only one that has ever been completely aggravated by this.. don't they remember how it felt to them? Moving on..
Movement: We're living in cramped quarters. I was whining to Trey this morning (big ups to him for putting up with me for the past month) about how much it hurt for him to be piled up in one spot stretching my skin beyond what should be normal, when he said, "how do you think he feels in there?" Poor monkey needs to come on out and stretch those legs out! But yes, feeling the movements.. rolling around and kicking. You can see my whole stomach moving.
Food cravings: Let's just say that the 35 lbs surprises me none. And now I'm to the point where I don't care a bit and I'm enjoying it every moment that I have left. There will be NO ice cream or cookies in my house once he comes out!
