Weeks 37-38

38 Weeks

How far along? 38 weeks

Baby's size and development? Baby G is still a watermelon, pretty much done developing and just gaining weight in preparation for their arrival. :)

Best moment? My water breaking!

Symptoms/Changes? Lost 2lbs so now I have only gained 13. It worries me a bit that it is so low but my midwives don't seem concerned so maybe all the baby books' recommendations of a 25-35lb weight gain are a bit extreme. Still no stretch marks! Dreams do come true! I am very uncomfortable all the time, especially during our drive to/from Vancouver for a friend's party on the night of March 23rd. Luckily my water broke 15 min after getting home from it so I won't have to suffer anymore long pregnant car rides for a while.
What I miss? Our hopes for a home birth. :( My blood pressure has stayed up, that combined with a prelabour rupture of membranes (PROM) and testing positive for GBS meant it was off to the hospital for us (of course just after we finally finished getting all our home birth supplies together).

What I'm looking forward to? Meeting this baby. <3
