37 Week Pregnancy Update
We had an appointment yesterday and I haven’t gained ANY weight since the appointment last week!! I was honestly shocked because I have been a mess craving (and giving into) sweets lately. In addition to the apple pie cheesecake that I made over the weekend, I also made peanut butter chip brownies and picked up (and ate) some Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream (whoops!).
I actually feel amazing still. My doctor came in and asked me how I feel and when I said great, he commented that I am making this look too easy for my first pregnancy. Honestly, it’s not a walk in the park, but I am enjoying my pregnancy, actually more at this point that I did my entire first trimester. If you remember from our post last week, we had our Group B Strep (GBS) test and the results came back negative!!!! (that’s what we wanted).
Since last week, we shampooed that carpets (and when I say we here, I mean Andrew), finished writing our birth plan, and packed up some special treats for our nurses (post on that soon).
I am still feeling tired a lot more than I was used too and I credit that really to my body preparing me for the lack of sleep that I am about to experience. My contractions are not consistent at all, but I know with every one that I have it’s my body preparing and moving along.
My one sad moment is that I do officially have stretch marks on my belly. It’s the one thing that I didn’t want and for them to come so late is so disappointing to me. It’s like my belly dropped a bit and I get them :/ I know most moms will just say it’s a blessing to remind me of my pregnancy and not a big deal; but, to me it is. I have had stretch marks on my legs since high school and even got them on my boobs really early in pregnancy, but my belly is one place I didn’t want them. But what can I do!
Until next week…….
