Beckett's Pregnancy Updates

39 Weeks
How far along? 39 Weeks!  Whoa mama!
Total weight gain: 26.2 lbs... evidently, I lost a little weight.

Stretch marks? Tummy is clear as can be and doctor said that since I've made it this far, she can't imagine I'll get any, yay!

Sleep: Sleeping well :)  This is seriously the best I've felt/slept the entire pregnancy...

Best moment this week:  Today was truly a fabulous day :)  Little A is due in exactly a week, I finally got my computer back AND Mac gave me a discount for keeping it a lot longer than expected, my mom and I went out for a mani pedi, and hubby and I decided to celebrate Little A's anticipated arrival by going out for Chipotle :) YUM. 
Miss Anything? Not at all, so excited to meet Little A!  
Movement: He is super duper cramped so his movements have decreased a little. 
Food cravings: Frozen yogurt and strawberries.  Poor Michael, he is seriously sick of going out for frozen yogurt and me, I could still eat it all day, EVERY day :) 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Grapes, that's about it.
Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks.  And hubby and I have started trying out all the 'fun' things you can do to throw yourself into labor.  So far walking, hot sauce, pineapple, and the 'old fashioned' way haven't done much good... I'm open to suggestions :) 
Belly Button in or out? Definitely out

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: So incredibly happy :) 
Looking forward to: Cannot to wait to meet our sweet Baby A! 

38 Weeks
How far along? 38
Total weight gain: 26.4 lbs

Stretch marks? Zero!  I will have a serious melt down if I get any at this point lol 
Sleep: Sleeping really well besides the fact I have to get up to go potty at least 4 times a night. Best moment this week:  Probably going out to dinner with my family and my Auntie Lois and Uncle Curly;  It was so good to see and catch up with them!  Also had a fun weekend with the hubs :)
Miss Anything? Not really :)
Movement: He feels pretty cramped, but he's moving around in what little room he has left!
Food cravings: Frozen yogurt.  I LOVE frozen yogurt. We've been going out for it about every other night or so, yum!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just Grapes.  I seriously hate grapes.
Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: No :(  Went to the doctor today, Little A has officially dropped and things are moving along, but there's no telling when he will actually arrive! 
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks... that's about it.
Belly Button in or out? Definitely out

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy :) And especially happy when eating a frozen yogurt topped with an ungoddly amount of strawberries!
Looking forward to: Little A's arrival!  ... And the next time I have a frozen yogurt haha

37 Weeks
How far along? 37 Weeks, full term!
Total weight gain: 26 lbs

Stretch marks? Zero

Sleep: Wake up a lot to pee
Best moment this week: This week has been fun, I've had a few lunch dates with some lovely friends! 
Miss Anything? Going a day without rib pain.  
Movement: Moving around like crazy, despite the fact that there's hardly any room left for him to wiggle!  Sometimes it feels like he's trying to stretch out my stomach with his elbows lol

Food cravings: At this point, hardly anything sounds good; It literally hurts to eat anything of substance so I'm going to say slushies are currently my 'food' of choice.... If only I could live off them until Little A's arrival! :)) (<-- I gave this smiley a double chin because this pregnancy is turning me into a fat ass haha)

Anything making you queasy or sick: Red meat, grapes, and peanut butter.

Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: Nada besides braxton hicks
Symptoms: Rib and back pain.

Belly Button in or out? Definitely out

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy :)  But still having meltdowns.  I feel like I should start a weekly meltdown category on here... This week I cried after losing in Monopoly.   
Looking forward to: Meeting Little A!  SOOO ready for his arrival! :)

36 Weeks
How far along? 36 Weeks!
Total weight gain: 25.4 lbs
Stretch marks? Still happy to say none!
Sleep: Not sleeping well.  Hips are too sore.
Best moment this week: Doctors appointment!  Everything looks good and I'm already dialated 2 cm!  Doc still said it could still be up 4 weeks before anything happens though.
Miss Anything? Not too much, just being comfortable
Movement: Oh yes, he feels pretty cramped at this point so just lots of squirming around.
Food cravings: Strawberries still. And anything else sweet.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Red meat, grapes, and peanut butter. 
Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: Having contractions here and there-nothing much.
Symptoms: Horrible indigestion.  Sore ribs, back, and hips. 
Belly Button in or out? Definitely out
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: As much as I would like to say happy, I am feeling extremely moody.  EVERYTHING makes me cry.  Seriously.  The other day I cried because I messed up my nails... It's a little ridiculous!

35 Weeks
How far along? 35 Weeks!
Total weight gain:  24 lbs

Best moment this week: Maternity pictures :) Can’t wait to share them with you all!
Miss Anything? Nothing really :)
Movement: Oh yes.  Don’t remember if I had mentioned it in another post or not, but he REALLY likes to get his feet wedged under my ribs.    

Food cravings: Strawberries still. And anything else sweet.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Red meat and grapes.  I hate grapes.
Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: None yet… But scary to think it could happen at just about anytime now?  As of Monday we have just 1 month until the due date! Oh lordie!
Symptoms: Like I said, my ribs have been pretty sore and I have been SUPER emotional!  Who knew you could burst into tears for literally no reason at all?  Seriously, I think I’ve cried at least once a day for the last week, thank you hormones.
Belly Button in or out? Definitely out
Wedding rings on or off? On, but they were feeling pretty snug the other day… Must be the warm weather. 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but also moody.  Michael and I watched Knocked Up the other night, and I was holding back tears the entire movie.  It seriously is not as funny now!  And then when she went into labor I lost it and started balling…
Looking forward to: Meeting our little jumping bean!  And I can’t wait to have everything crossed off my to do list, it still seems like it’s a million miles long. 

34 Weeks
How far along? 34 weeks!  Seriously unbelievable that I'll be full term in less than a month...
Total weight gain: Went to the doctor yesterday - 23.8 lbs

Maternity clothes?  Mmmhmm  

Stretch marks? Still happy to say none!  I'm sure it won't last, my doctor told me I'm more likely to get them than not. Sleep: Depends on the night.  I toss and turn a lot because of my achy hips. 

Best moment this week: Getting Little A's nursery in order :)  I hate clutter and love looking into his crisp, clean room!  Just a few more items to purchase and the nursery will be complete.  
And finding out today that my MACalicous isn't yet dead... She still works when plugged into the wall with an ethernet cord, whoo!  

Miss Anything? I could really use a Beergarita right about now... But other than that, nothing. 
Movement:  Do you even have to ask? :)

Food cravings: Strawberries... And now Caesar Salad... My mom would be so proud!

Labor Signs: Just Braxton Hicks. 
Symptoms: Lack of mobility, indigestion, achy back and ribs. 

Belly Button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? On... But this nice weather is assisting with swelling and is starting to give me sausage fingers. So we'll see if I can keep them on. 

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy but definitely moody.  When mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!  

Looking forward to:  Easter!  I know Little A isn't here yet, but I couldn't help but start putting together a basket for him :)  
AND maternity pictures Tuesday!  
33 Weeks
How far along? 33 weeks!
Total weight gain: 23.2 lbs

Stretch marks? I'm going to curl up and cry for a week straight if I get any... The amount I've spent on oils and lotions is a little ridiculous.  But so far so good!

Sleep: I slept well last night.  But most nights I wake up with hip pain.

Best moment this week: My baby shower :) I had such an amazing time seeing everyone and Little A got a lot of amazing things!

Miss Anything? I would say I'm pretty content about now.  I know I'll miss my bump more than I miss anything else once Little A arrives!

Sleep: My hips hurt pretty bad so I toss and turn all night. 

Best moment this week: So far, going to the doctor today :)  My glucose test came back completely normal, I had my negative blood type shot (I forgot what it's called) and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, my weight and measurements are all good and doctor said that it feels like Little A is head down!

Miss Anything? Mobility... my back has been so sore I haven't been able to get much done lately :/
Movement:  Tons, as usual :)  Today he kicked my doctor during the appointment haha 

Food cravings: STRAWBERRIES.  If I could live off of them I would.  I think they are the only thing I've craved and not gotten sick of... besides Nutella, of course
Anything making you queasy or sick: Mostly just red meat 
Gender: Boy

Labor Signs: No, but crazy to think Little A will be full term in just 6 short weeks!

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy, but being achy towards the end of the day is making me a bit moody.

Total weight gain: As of this morning, 19.4 lbs

Best moment this week: Last night.  The weather has been absolutely amazing so we grilled on the patio and then went out for ice cream, it was pretty awesome :)

Movement: Pretty sure he'll turn out to be some sort of athlete

Best moment this week: Going out for peppermint ice cream.  Hands down. 
Miss Anything?   Honestly?  Beer.  A nice cold Coors Light sounds absolutely delicious.

Belly Button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, but definitely moody as well.  This past weekend Michael and I decided to paint Little A's nursery.  Michael thought the color I picked was too light and offered to go pick up some more paint samples, and me, being the rational person I am, burst into tears and said something along the lines of, "how dare you insult my interior decorating skills!"  Needless to say, hubby was right, and today I'm picking out a new color. 
Looking forward to: My cousins baby shower this weekend!

Belly Button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Definitely had a few meltdowns this week.  Most maternity clothes are too big and my regular clothes are too small, so naturally I cried about it for about an hour.  And does indecisiveness count?  I just changed the bedding we registered for, for the 5th time this weekend.

Food cravings: Fruit!  Mostly strawberries and bananas.  Also, still on my Nutella kick.  I don’t remember a day where I didn’t have a Nutella sandwich at some point, yum!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Red meat and now coffee… the thought of it makes me want to hurl.
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: Not so far
Symptoms: This past week I’ve been pretty miserable.  I have pretty constant backaches, but I’ve been using a hot water bottle and that seems to help a little!  Body pillow is definitely helping with hip pain.
