Second Pregnancy :: Week 38

Second Pregnancy :: Week 38

**Don’t forget to enter our fun little guessing game on Mac’s due date, weight, and length HERE**

Age of baby #1:
21 months today (which will make them ~21.5 months apart)

How far along:
38 weeks

How big is baby:
the size of a pumpkin (how appropriate, considering the time of the year!)

Weight gain:
2 lbs. (for a total weight gain of 33 lbs)

Maternity clothes:
Same as usual…yoga pants and long tank tops.  We also went to another wedding this weekend and I found yet another fun dress that I’ll share some details on later (because I wish I had discovered this source earlier in my pregnancy!!!).

Stretch marks:
None.

Belly button:
Pretty much an outtie, I think.

Sleep:
I’ve been sleeping really well…I feel really well rested.  I still get up multiple times in the night to go pee, but I’m not having a hard time falling back asleep like I had been the past couple months. Baby steps!

Best moment of the week:
Once again, so many great moments…here were my favorites ::

  • Kiki’s arrival

  • Spending time with Uncle Christopher

  • Joe & Rachel’s Wedding and seeing all my old friends

  • The Giants winning Game 6 last night…Game 7 tonight…woohoo!

Food cravings:
Nothing specific, really…but I feel like I’ve been eating a lot and enjoying every morsel.

Food aversions:
None.

Symptoms:

  1. Itchy Itchy ITCHY :: Still dealing with itchy arms, back, and neck.
  2. Braxton Hicks :: Not too many contractions to report this week.  I’m not feeling like Mac is coming anytime soon.
  3. 3.      Mac is sitting LOW :: She’s still feeling very low.
  4. Peeing ALL the time because Mac is stomping all over my bladder.
  5. Puffiness and swelling on occasion (like on Saturday when I stood a ton at the wedding reception).
  6. Dark line on my belly.
  7. Clothes aren’t fitting well.
  8. Heartburn, but it’s SO MUCH BETTER thanks to Pepcid AC paired with Tums.
  9. Red spots on my arms, chest, and face.
  10. Feeling tired.

Movement:
Active, active, active.

Gender:
GIRL :: Mackenzie Marie!!!

What I’m looking forward to:
My dentist appointment today (call me crazy, but I love getting my teeth cleaned), date night with Travis tonight, meeting Mac, and not being pregnant.

What I’m nervous about:
This is one of those days where I’m not nervous about anything, but I am feeling a little extra stressed for no particular reason.  I’m about as ready as I can be for Mac, yet I’m coming up with silly things to stress out about.

What I miss:
Not having heartburn and not feeling like a whale at the end of the day when I’m rolling around in bed trying to get comfortable (the rest of the day I feel really great).

Next appointment:
October 24th
