How far along: 41 Weeks, 4 Days – So, I survived the worst sinus infection to date in my 31 years and I’m feeling good. Baby and I are still hanging out in this ginormous bod of mine. Somehow, I’m still feeling pretty good (mentally and physically). Babes and I are sitting comfortably… well, bouncing comfortably.
Total weight gain: As of my last weigh-in on Friday (4 days ago), I had lost a pound or so. With that, I’m at a total weight gain of 32 lbs even. Like most 41.5 week pregnant mommas, I’m feeling SO SKINNY. haha But really, I don’t feel too bad!
Maternity clothes: I’m over maternity clothes… but still rocking nothing but.
Stretch marks: F this question. As of 41 weeks, I have stretch marks. Asshole stretch marks. My doc said they might go away post-birth. I’m not overly confident, but I will say, they look better than when I first discovered them. I’m scared for my post-birth stomach, but trying to stay optimistic. There’s always really fancy and expensive lasers to zap that shit off once I have tons of excess money just slapping me in the face… right?
Sleep: Since being sick and being totally unable to sleep for more than 1 hour at a time, I’m 1000% grateful for my “only woke up three times to pee last night” sleep. It’s so luxurious.
Best moment of this week: I had an amazing time this weekend. The weather was perfect and our little family of three really enjoyed every available minute. I’m very thankful we had the time together.
Miss anything: I could go for some oysters.
Movement: Yes, yes. Little bugger likes to try to widen my stomach with his tiny feet. I’m guessing my ritzy womb is getting a bit tight these days.
Food cravings: Oysters and champagne.
Anything making you queasy or sick: My sinuses were trying to murder me via facial explosion. But that since has passed.
Have you started to show yet: BOOM, BOOM, BOOM… that’s the sound I make crossing the room.
Gender: Comfy, cozy little dude.
Labor signs: Well, I am definitely not in labor… so I don’t know how to answer this question. But am I having contractions? Yes. I had a very friendly (and by friendly I mean breath-stealing, reached-my nostrils) membrane sweep on Friday. It didn’t kick me into labor, but I’m hoping it has at least helped me to progress. Fingers crossed that my doc can fit me in this afternoon for round two of Operation Torture Mommy to Get Baby Out.
Belly button in or out: Ihave the weirdest belly button. It’s outward, but still very inny. Anytime Charlotte sees it, she does a double take.
Wedding rings on or off: Still rocking the wedding band and can definitely still get my engagement ring on… but it’s off.
Happy or moody most of the time: Ihave somehow been in a great mood (post-sinus hell).
Looking forward to: Baby, baby, baby!
You look great Mama! Hope baby makes his appearance soon!
I love your sense of humor and good attitude. You really are my favorite pregnant person 🙂 wishing you all the best this week!!! ((Arms open wide Hugs))
41/4 was the day Elias finally came. We started thinking it would never really happen!
Oh girl hang in there!! I’m planning on a full body rejuvenation after we are done with babies. Get everything put in the right spot again lol
Exactly! I will definitely need a nice lift and reduction after all the nursing! Haha
Oh yes I’m with you there I want some oysters too! And maybe a cocktail to wash them down. Hopefully I’ll only need to wait a week for them, the cocktail on the other hand is a looooong way off. Best of luck
Girl, I love that you are still holding onto your sense of humor at 41 weeks! And you honestly do look amazing! If I had gone late like that when I was preggo with Brady, I would have looked like a whale. (I totally gained 60 pounds for him… *insert sheepish grin*).
I hope the little one decides to come soon, so that you can sleep on your tummy again.. touch your toes again… and cuddle a newborn again. 🙂
Thank you! I gained 60+ with Charlotte and 32 with new babes! I totally feel the “sheepish grin”…
