Week 37

Officially 2 little weeks and 4 short days until this baby’s due date. I am getting so so excited and trying to remain calm/not stressed. This weekend I have my final baby shower and cannot wait. It’s also hotter/humid-er than hell right now and my feet have finally started to swell. Swell.

I just had my Dr. Appointment and they said the baby’s heart beat is at 130 and perfecto. They also said he’s probs around 6 pounds…a good size. Nothing got shoved in my bumhole this time so that was cool. Bumhole or rectum or anus? I’m not sure what you call it and Sam won’t tell me because he says I should know.

My belly feels bigger this week and I seem to be slowing down a bit. I’ve also felt some contractions (I think??) which is cray cray. Everything gets realllll tight but it doesn’t hurt yet. I weighed 154 this week and just want to snuggle Ruth, arrange the baby room, and carpet clean.

There’s a human in there!

Now, lets take a brief moment to talk about last weekends diaper shower. Sam’s school held a gathering for us at a local restaurant and it was fantastic. There was good food, lots of chatting, and SO MANY DIAPERS. I was shocked. The baby’s closet is literally overflowing with diapers and wipes and I could cry thinking about it. People are too kind and we are so grateful for so many wonderful people.

Now, this week I’ve been having some weird dreams. I dreamt that I was walking Ruthie by this big lake and we came to a cliff and the lake was full of golden retrievers. All of a sudden Ruthie got loose and took off and I thought she drowned in the lake. She ended up turning up a week later from the woods and I couldn’t stop crying. I’ve also only wanted to snuggle Ruthie lately and pet her. Odd? IDK.

I also had a vision after a midnight pee run that I would start to write a book on my maternity leave…perhaps.

Cravings have kind of been back this week. Salads, cottage cheese, malts, and donuts. OH AND PIZZA. All I want right now is pizza. I just got a margarita pizza from Punch with a Greco Salad. I ate half of it and am trying to pace myself. I’m guessing that pizza will be gone before I go to bed tonight…just saying. Sam’s out of town this week so he can’t judge me.

My morning appetite is still absent so I’ve been trying to have an apple and string cheese at least to get something in my belly. I love cheese. I also had donuts twice this week…sue me.

Added some fruit for good measure

Sam said I was starting to get feisty this week and hissed at me like a cat…all because I didn’t want to move over when he came to join me on the front step. Sounds like his problem 🙂

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the fun things I found at the Munchkin Market last Friday. I was shocked at how not busy it was when I arrived. I took my time and found some really great things. In total I spent $29 and got a snowsuit (that I saw on Poshmark for $50), a MN wild sleeper, a onesie, a cute little pant/sweatshirt set, and some blocks/cars. Sam and I washed everything and are ready to go.

The baby snowsuit

Lets see, what else has been happening this week…I know what hasn’t…workouts at the gym LOL. I did one on Tuesday and was so over it. I did a 20 min run Wednesday morning and was also over that. So the rest of the week I’ve been taking it easy and did a couple at home workouts. I might hit the gym tomorrow and try something but I might also not. I’ve really loved walking the dog in the morning before work and she’s finally getting used to walking in the dark. It’s our special time together.

That’s about all that’s happened this week. I’m hoping to make some soups and stuff that we can keep in the freezer so when this little guy arrives we won’t have to worry about cooking. Now I’m off to clean the basement carpet because it’s NASTY.

Catch ya later!
