Yesterday I was 38 weeks. I went to the doctor today and he said that I was a solid one. I am not even sure what a solid one is but anyways. Last week I had an ultrasound so the doctor could decide if he was moving up my due date to tomorrow. Easton was weighing around 7lbs and he said he will probably gain about half a pound a week and the dr thinks I will do fine with this. I am not positive on this but I am thinking any mom who had a baby weighing 7.1 lbs and one weighing 8 something could defiantly tell some differences! So with this information my due date is still August 24. I really would not like to be induced this time so we will have to see how that goes.
I am feeling pretty good for the most part nothing out of the ordinary for being 38 weeks along. I have gained 23 lbs so far and I feel it there is just not a lot of room when you are just shy of 5'2. When I was pregnant with Addi my hands went numb the for the last trimester and they hurt SO bad. They would tingle and then my wrists would throb. I also had some swelling in my legs and hands. This time I have not had either and I know it is because I am not working. I think not using my hands and not sitting in the same position for 8 hours a day has really helped. We are ready to meet Easton so we are just waiting!
Justin has been at work since early Saturday afternoon and will be home sometime tomorrow. As you know it has been SOOO hot and they have had a lot of fires. He has not been home at all during this time. I am so ready for him to come home. Please pray for all the firefighters. It is almost 110 degrees here and their gear weighs around 80 pounds I get hot just thinking about it.
I love Addi but being at home just the two of us for almost 3 days has been a little challenging. I am going to be extra nice to Justin when he comes home because I do not ever want to be a single parent!! The heat and me being 38 weeks pregnant really narrows down what we do. I know that not every day has to be a super fun day and some days in life are pretty boring but we go crazy if we stay at home all day!
I am enjoying my time off and enjoying Addi but I do miss somethings about work of course I miss my paycheck but I also miss my lunch breaks...they were all MINE usually I went alone and would shop, run errands or probably the best lunch break read while I drank my diet coke. Also I never ever had co-workers follow me into the bathroom each time I had to go. Would love to be all alone for a 5 minutes!
