Bumpdate: Week 38

Week 38

Gender: It's a Boy! 

Weight Gain/Loss: Let's just say +35. 

Baby's Growth: Not sure what he should be at this point.
But just taking a guess, I'm sure he will be over the 8 pound range.

Movement: Slowly slowing down. 
I'm thinking he's out of room.
Thank goodness he will be evacuated soon!

Food Cravings:  CHOCOLATE & salads.. 
Definitely not together. Lol. 

How I'm Feeling: Lots of energy. 
Still a few mild headaches & crazy crazy painful heartburn. 

Anything Making You Queasy/Sick: Not really!

Sleeping: Just depends on the night.

Stretchmarks: Yes! So embarrassed by them but at least I can blame genetics?
Lathering up with both Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lotion & their spray oil, as well. 

Belly Button In/Out: In... But very flat!

We need to:
Hang curtains
Put new knobs on dresser
Steam clean carpets 
Decorate built in book shelf
Wash all clothes
Wash all bedding & blankets
Hang artwork 
Find mirror to hang above dresser
Order rocking chair
Spray paint monogram for above crib 
Organize all his presents from his baby shower
Put down rug 

Other To Do's: 
Put car seat in car
Pack hospital bag
Buy aromatherapy birthing oils
Finish birth plan

Favorite Moment This Week: 
I went to my final OB appointment on Tuesday, February 25 & got the best news ever.
Yesterday, I was admitted to the hospital to be induced.
We should be having a baby at any moment!

Looking Forward To:  
Holding my sweet baby boy in my arms & kissing his chubby cheeks.

Thanks for reading!
I will hopefully post again soon with news of our son's birthday & of course about his big debut!
Hope y'all have a great week!

*Just a reminder I am posting this one week behind so I can recap my week in full.
