38 Weeks

Sorry no picture this week, I have been so sick! I have bronchitis and the flu. I kept postponing this post thinking I would get better with no luck. This was supposed to get posted Saturday so a little late now only 9 days till baby but oh well. Maybe I'll do a better update this weekend.

Crazy to think last time I did a pregnancy post I was looking at a month away. Now I am literally less then 2 weeks away from holding my baby girl in my arms! My Dad already has his flights booked to come meet the baby and help out for a couple of days. Insane it is finally arriving, car seat is in the car, bags are packed, were just waiting for baby to come we know exactly what day and time which is a little un-real. But that's what happens when your little girl wants to do things her way. She is just as stubborn as her mother already, what have I done!?

12 Days till Baby Phillips Birthday 

Such a wonderful belated Christmas gift. Can't wait to spend a week all alone with my husband for the break and our last hooray as just the two of us. We have been eating lots of junk food and going on lots of dates!

How far along are you? 38 weeks

Maternity Clothes? Can't go without them!

Ring: Is Off!! It fits but my hands change size through out the day and I find it very uncomfortable.

Sleep: I have a very hard time sleeping at night, and cannot fall asleep to nap anymore either.

Best moments: Feeling the baby moving around in there, reminds me that she loves me already and her active moments are more rare these days.

Missing anything? My Body!! Restful Sleep!! My Clothes!!

Movement? She is a little stealthier lately which is odd, but she does move every once in a while still.

Food Cravings: Still eating cereal everyday, always want carbs and chocolate. 

Queasy or Sick? Drinking water makes me feel sick, and I seam to be nauseas a lot more these last two weeks.

Gender: Having a girl!!

Symptoms: Lots of Braxton hicks, stabbing pains, and false labor moments. I am so swollen, my arms and legs don't fit into a lot of my clothes anymore I am rotating through the same couple of outfits everyday now. My Robe usually being the only thing I want to wear. Tons of stretch marks, if you saw me in a bikini you would think I was a bear attack survivor. 

Belly Button in or Out? Half Out!! So funny just the top portion has popped out, my belly is being pulled too tight to let the rest free!

Happy or Moody? Happy, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Looking Forward to: Meeting my baby girl!!

36 Weeks

Oh this little baby girl of mine she is like her mother already! Stubborn and feisty, it's adorable and terrifying. She kicks at all the doctors when they try to feel where she is and move her. She does not want to be bothered while hanging out with Mom she gives me little head nudges in my ribs and I always interpret them as, "Mom I just want to stay up here close to you!" Can't blame her I guess, I wouldn't want to be upside down either. 

Between seeing my Midwife, and now getting transferred to an OB, and seeing a webster chiropractor 2 times a week I swear I am always being poked and prodded at. Counting down the days till I can meet my sweet girl, recover and start our new world together.

29 Days till Due Date

So crazy to think next month I will have my baby here!

Hardest part of my day, definitely putting my shoes on! I don't even want to leave the house anymore because that means bending over to get ready.

Favourite part of the day is the little head nudges from my baby girl.

Latest symptom is Hiatal Hernia - pretty much my stomach is herniated above my diaphragm making keeping any liquids down really hard. I am constantly dehydrated these days!
