Week: We´re in our 39th week (38+6), which means that our little seed is now 36 weeks old.
Days passed, and days to go: I´ve been pregnant for about 272 days now and I still got 11 more days to go.
Length and weight: The baby´s at around 48cm from head to toe and weighs about 3200g this week (according to my book from “Sandviks Babyverden”).
Gained weight: 14 kg now and still growing.
Baby´s size: He/she is as big as a pumpkin (according to this source)! ♥ I have a little pumpkin pie inside of me! Imagine that :-)
Pregnancy symptoms: Nothing new to add! The same old, same old. PGP, heart burn, water swelling, a desperate bladder and contractions.
Mood: Sleepy and I though it might sound too dramatic, I feel more or less like an invalid compared to my old self a couple of months ago. Changing position when lying down, picking up things from the floor, changing socks and other similar things- it all feels like such a workout, I swear!
Signs of life: Movements everyday, thank God above. Sometimes it feels as if the baby´s literally coming out, through my tummy! Funny and weird at the very same time..
Must haves: Birkenstocks and a heating pad!
Last purchase(s): A storage basket from SneDesign, baby cradle mobile and hanging woven macrame from Etsy, book cases from Alice and Fox, Vita Eos lamp for the baby´s room, wall pennant decor, playing brick house, mattress for one of our inherited baby cradle and a few new sets of clothing which were on sale! :-) An eager mom, yes, whoose mind is set on nesting! Also, we´ve received yet another sweet knitted set *looooove!!*
This week´s training: Last week I settled for one weightlifting session at the gym. Otherwise, walking the dog was plenty enough activity. Yesterday, I completed 45 min on the cross trainer before surviving a couple of weightlifting exercises. In other words; I´m so done for this week. CHECK!
This week´s to-dos: I have a DIY- project planned in my mind. If I go through with it, I´ll remember to share the idea :-)
This week´s thoughts: Any day now, I can actually be a mom to a little human being, not only for a while, but for the rest of my life! Frightening to think about that I have the responsibility of another heart and soul for eternity, but also, I can´t wait! I´ve been watching a TV- serie called “Fødeavdelingen”, and my original thought was to prepare myself for the birth, but I find it stressing me more and more watching the show. No birth experience are the same anyway, so other than being informed about the alternatives of pain relief, I can´t really prepare myself for what´s really awaiting me. We´ll just have to wait and see. And hope and pray to God I´ll survive the whole experience when that time comes! *Eeek*
Cravings: Still everything ice and cold! Especially juice, smoothie, cold cake and ice cream ♥
This week´s appointments: An early morning appointment with the midwife, once every week now.
