38 Week Bumpdate


How Far Along: 38 weeks and 2 days

Due Date: 4/14/18 but my c-section is scheduled for 4/11/18! Yup, still pregnant...

Baby is the Size of: a swiss chard! Baby #2 should weigh 6.5 lbs and measure 19-22" long. I had my last ultrasound at 33 weeks and 4 days where Rhylan was weighing 5 lbs 8 oz. The high risk Dr is thinking she'll weigh between 8 1/2- 8 3/4 lbs when born and that I'll give birth between 38- 39 weeks like last time. I'm going to say she is going to be 8 lbs 2 oz and 22" long at birth.

Weight Gain: 41 lbs. Woohoo! No weight gain this past week!

Symptoms: Nausea, vomiting ("controlled" by Diclegis and Promethazine), MOODY, emotional, fatigue, Depression, super EXHAUSTED, lower back/ tailbone pain, acid reflux ("controlled" by Pepcid- I take this twice a day and am having issues with heartburn and acid reflux again), cramping, pelvic pain/ pubic bone pain, pregnancy brain, braxton hicks, pressure down low, and real contractions.

Gender: Girl!

Name: Rhylan Violet

Movement: Yes!

Rings On or Off?: Off. They sadly reside on my necklace.

Signs of Labor: I've been having some inconsistent contractions and braxton hicks for months and she dropped at 32 weeks. She is head down and at my cervix/ pushing against my cervix. I started taking Evening Primrose Oil at 36 weeks (Once or twice a day orally and once a night vaginally- haven't been 100% consistent on that though).

Nursery: Mermaid themed! If you missed it, here is the nursery reveal!

Maternity Clothes: I'm in maternity clothes and some non-maternity clothes.

Sleep: Same old, same old. I sleep but never feel like I got sleep. I have been waking up a lot throughout the night too- even more than before, uggggh.

Best Moment(s) of the Week:
-Rory feeling better. Thursday I got a call after I had only been at work for like 15 min. that Rory was throwing up. Then I got a call like 20 min. later saying she was still throwing up and not able to keep any food or liquids down. So I left work after I finished a few things up and took my poor baby to the Drs where they said she most likely just had a stomach virus. She has only thrown up once ever before this and that was when she was with Jesse at home while I was at a Drs appt. So this was pretty scary and just made me sad to see my poor baby suffering. Luckily the vomiting stopped and she was able to keep down cheerios and water and feel better in time for Easter egg dying, Easter egg hunts and Easter!
-Easter! Rory's 2nd Easter ever!
-Easter egg hunts. Rory had 2 Easter egg hunts this past weekend.


Missing: Not being nauseous, margaritas, wine and gin and tonics. Ugh, you do not know how badly I want alcohol. Sooo looking forward to my first drink after Rhylan is born.

Cravings & Aversions: No big time cravings but enjoying ice cream, peanut m&ms, Doritos, and sour cream and onion chips (not together).

Mood: MOODY. I am soooo much more moodier this pregnancy and emotional.

Looking Forward to:
-Today is my final prenatal appointment and NST! I'm going to ask for a cervical check (*Fingers Crossed* I'm dilated). My last prenatal appointment when I was pregnant with Rory was also at 38 weeks and 2 days. They didn't do a cervical check. I had her 2 days later. So let's see if Rhylan follows suit or makes us wait!
-Finishing up 2 last freezer meals that we've been procrastinating on and just trying to get a little cleaning done around the house this weekend.
