We are almost reaching Baby MJ's due date! Just a few more weeks until we can hold him in our arms. This will be my last pregnancy update from 2015! How crazy is that? The year is almost over, and 2016 is coming with a lot of surprises.
Today we visited Baby's doctor, and everything seemed fine. His head is measuring 35 weeks and 6 days, and his body is measuring 34 weeks and 5 days. He might not be the tallest, but he definitely will have a big brain. Fingers crossed and prayers I am able to pop him out with a normal birth.
How far long: 34 weeks = 238 days. Just 6 more weeks or maybe even less.
Baby MJ's size: Baby MJ is the size of a cantaloupe.
Weight gain: I was able to weigh myself at the doctor's visit and after three weeks I gained one more kilo. I started my pregnancy with 51 kgs, and 34 weeks later I weigh 57 kgs. Just a few more week to go, and to reach a healthy weight.
Miss anything: I miss drinking lots of caffeine to keep me awake, and missing sleeping on my stomach.
Belly button in or out: Sort of out, but very subtle.
Best moment this week: It was great the long weekend that Gavin got for Christmas Eve and day. I enjoyed having our first and last quiet Christmas before everything changes. Also, I am enjoying having Simba, the cat, over at our place. He loves to cuddle, and is a great companion.
Sleep: I was sleeping ok, except for the visit to the toilet around 5 AM, until the Braxton Hicks or aka practice contractions keep me up all yesterday night. They can really hurt sometimes.
Symptoms: Apart from contractions, swollen fingers, and forgetfulness, I also have lots of clumsiness at driving.... lets not go any further into that subject.
Food cravings: Milk, cookies, lentils, and anything that someone else is willing to cook for me.
Movements: My stomach has been taken so many shapes this week. I love watching him move around, and feel the different parts of his body.
Names: We changed the name. Just kidding, I can't wait to tell you all.
Looking forward to: Getting over with the last things on the to-do list before Baby MJ comes, such as putting the crib together, getting the car chair in the car, and starting packing everything for the hospital.
Hope you had a great week so far!
