Baby Book – 38 Weeks Bump

BLANQI Mama
38 Weeks Pregnant! Still chugging a long.
Starting to feel prettyyyyy uncomfortable. The last few weeks are always so hard.
You start getting signs of labor..and you go into constant “could this be it???” mode.
And then when you try and just forget about being pregnant..you can’t!
Because every random person and their neighbor are reminding you that you are pregnant! Asking when you are due..telling you you look like you are about to pop.
But…if people didn’t say anything.. you would end up crying about that too. ;)
So..it’s just part of being pregnant at the end! I must say though..
I decided I love the lady at our grocery’s bakery counter. She made me feel awesome.
She knew how to talk to a pregnant lady..telling me I must be having a girl
because I have a glow! Girl or boy..I’ll take that type of comment over
the one I got 5 minutes later in the meat department..
“you can’t have much longer… can you????”
Contractions are still coming.. and getting more intense.
Hoping they are doing something.
My next check up is friday..and I’m anxious to see if I’ve progressed at all.
When I was at the hospital for one of our false alarms..they thought I was in early stages of labor with how my contractions were coming in..how I had the bloody show ALL day..
and how I was dilating and effaced.. so they had me walk around for an hour and
then re-examined me. they said jumping jacks were ok….
so inbetween some contractions we did some galloping through the hospital halls.
my husband of course had to video tape it. ;)

I’m happy to hang in there these last couple weeks till my due date.. but I just wish these contractions didn’t make me so miserable. Tonight I just sat on my butt the
whole night. I tried to get up a few times and I just couldn’t do it.
The contractions and the back pain hurt too much.
I mightttttt have broken down in tears for 2 minutes of a pitty party to my husband.
might have. ;) I’m not officially admitting to that.

Thanks for following a long my pregnancy journey with baby #3!!
I can’t wait to share the news when he or she finally stops teasing us and arrives! :)
It’s amazing how you forget all these little sufferings once the baby comes
because you are just so happy and in awe of this new life and in love!
I’m going to make myself remember though in the teenage years..
and remind them of my sufferings often. ;)

    This is the crucial period of pregnancy, your baby’s weight will increase up to 7 pounds in this period.

    Love the video! I think you’re having a girl too :) It’s going to be SO much fun either way. I am getting impatient for you too, I can’t imagine having contractions for so long.
