•How far along?: 38 weeks...
•How big is baby?: Big and heavy. Since I wont be getting a growth ultrasound to measure her size before she arrives (thanks sucky OB) I wont know exactly how big/small she will be until I deliver.
•Maternity clothes?: Yep. Everything. I have two nice shirts that I can wear out, and one pair of pants. It's sad. I did have a decent amount of maternity clothes about half way through my pregnancy, but now the things I had to wear, don't fit quite as nice. So I'm pretty limited. :(
•Stretch marks?: It could be so much worse.
•Sleep?: It's hit or miss. Some nights I can sleep just fine, others I'm up every hour on the hour only to wake up and actually get out of bed at 6am.
•Food cravings?: Whatever is currently shown via commercial. Right now, candy corn.
•Labor signs?: I had contractions last night consistently for an hour or so, then nothing. So far today, I've had 2 or 3.
•Belly button in or out?: It's kind of flat. So neither I guess.
•What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach, and caffeine.
•What I'm looking forward to: Going into labor and finally meeting my baby.
Evening Primrose Oil
Castor Oil (eww)
Red Raspberry Leaf Tea
I don't want to do Castor oil, seriously I would rather not have to deal with diarrhea before going into labor. The tea, I would try if there was a Whole Foods Store near us, alas, there isn't. I've heard you have to eat 7 whole pineapples for that old wives tale to work, and that's just too much. I'm hoping to have some spicy wings this weekend if little lady hasn't made her arrival. I've also been walking everyday, and doing squats. The Mr. suggested I do some jumping jacks, but I'm not sure if that's safe, so I'll have to ask Dr. Google. Please, please send me some labor dust, I'm begging you...
I'll leave you with my 38 week bump picture.
