Dress: Kimi and Kai C/O
Happy Friday everybody!! Today I am officially 38 weeks pregnant and SO READY to have this baby. Maybe it’s the heat, but it is really challenging to be so pregnant. I am not sure what I was thinking being heavily pregnant in the middle of July but hey at least the end is near! Everyone told me “Just wait for the end” and I had no idea what they meant…well now I do! It ain’t easy! That said, I feel so close! I can’t believe we are so close to meeting baby girl! Anyways, I love love the colors of this Kimi and Kai dress. It’s this really nice stretch jersey fabric and I love the fit. I hope you guys enjoy my bumpdate below!
How far along are you?
38 weeks!! 9 Months pregnant and 2 weeks away from my due date!
What are your cravings?
I am so hungry and thirsty 24/7. I can’t seem to quench my thirst. It’s really weird! I have been craving fruit and iced tea. I also have recently discover the Acai Bowls at Juice Generation and I am obsessed with the JackPot one. It’s SO GOOD!
Boy or Girl?
Baby girl 🙂
What size is the baby?
No idea at this point. Two weeks ago she was 6 lbs 12 ounces and supposedly the baby gains a 1/2 lb per week so she must be close to 8 lbs by now right?? EEEK!
How much weight have you gained?
44 lbs. AAAH. I know I am tall so my weight gain is different than most ladies but it’s crazy to see that number! Carrying around the extra weight is SO tough and I am looking forward to getting back into shape once baby girl arrives.
How are you sleeping?
It’s hit or miss. Some nights I sleep really well and other nights I sleep terribly. It just depends!
Have you felt the baby kick?
Ohhhh yea! Baby is so big in my belly. I actually called the dr. last week because baby was moving SO much I thought she was in distress. Apparently there is no such thing as too much movement so all good.
What has been the hardest thing about your pregnancy thus far?
The end is the hardest. Physically it is super difficult, but it’s also tough becuase I know that these are our last two weeks before our life gets flipped upside down. I am trying to find the energy to take advantage of our time together and see friends etc. but I am just so uncomfortable. I sort of feel guilty that all I want to do is hole up in our apartment and lay horizontally on my couch! I know it’s fine and I need to rest, but I weirdly feel bad about it.
What do you miss about before being pregnant?
WINE! MARGARITAS! COLD CUTS!
Thoughts, and extras
I can’t wait to meet baby girl 🙂 What do you guys think? Is she coming early?? Or do you think she is going to take her sweet time?
