How far along? 39 weeks – and we are done!
Size of baby: 7 pounds, 12 ounces and 20 inches long! He dropped to 7 lb, 5 oz at his first pediatrician appointment, but judging by how much he’s been eating lately, I think he’s well on his way back to his birth weight!
Maternity clothes? I’ll be honest, I haven’t even attempted regular pants yet. I’ve been lounging in yoga pants and leggings a lot, and when I really need to get dressed I’ve still been tossing on my maternity jeans. I’ll get brave enough to try my real jeans soon!
Sleep: Yeah, about that. Not a lot of sleep happening in my house with a newborn. He’s pretty good about giving us 2-ish hour stretches throughout the night though, so I can’t complain too much!
Movement: It’s so awesome to SEE him wiggling around and getting the hiccups now. There are no words to describe how amazing it is to actually have him here.
What I miss: NOTHING! I’m so happy that the pregnancy part is over and now I get to enjoy my sweet baby boy!
Cravings/Food aversions: I have eaten as many turkey sandwiches as I could get my hands on in the last week, and I’ve had my fair share of wine. It’s such a relief to be able to eat whatever I want again!
Other Symptoms: My pregnancy symptoms are gone (goodbye heartburn!) and now I have all the fun postpartum stuff going on. But it’s all oh so worth it.
What made me cry this week: There have been a lot of (happy) tears this week. Jackson is basically the best baby ever, Corey is the best dad ever, and both of them make me so happy I get a little teary.
Favorite moment this week: Having our baby! That moment where I saw him the first time has been the best moment of my life so far.
