39 Week Bumpdate

   Y'all, it is so weird doing a 39 week bumpdate post! Since I had Rory at 38 weeks and 4 days, this is the longest I've been pregnant.


How Far Along: 39 weeks and 2 days

Due Date: 4/14/18 but my c-section is scheduled for 4/11/18! 2 DAYS until she is here!!!

Baby is the Size of: a watermelon! Baby #2 should weigh 7 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.. I'm going to say she is going to be 8 lbs 2 oz and 22" long at birth.

Weight Gain: 43 lbs.

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. My last prenatal appt and NST were a week ago and as of that visit, I'm not dilated at all.

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:
-Final NST and prenatal appt done!
-My boss and coworkers surprised me with a Target gift card containing a generous amount that Jesse and I are so very grateful and thankful for.
-Took Rory to Tumble Town for the first time. It is a little play center in the mall that you pay to either drop your kids off to play while you shop or you stay with them (in our case, we stayed with Rory. I just don't think I could drop my kid off at a play center in the mall- ANXIETY). She had so much fun.
-Our last time eating out as a family of 3. We went to Texas Roadhouse after Tumble Town. I thought this would be a great idea b/c I figured she would be worn out. Wellllll we didn't exactly choose the best time and so the princess was grumpy and acted out- she has never acted that way before. I think if we had done everything an hr or 2 earlier, we would've been fine.

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 last day of work for about 8 weeks!!!
-Getting the final things done before my c-section on Wednesday.
-Spending the day home with Rory tomorrow before we drop her off at my mom's house.
-My c-section/ meeting Rhylan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
