How far along: 39 weeks Countdown to EDD: One week/7 days!!! Baby is the size of a: Watermelon. We had a growth scan this week and they estimated that he weighs about 7 pounds 3 ounces.
Physical symptoms:Just generally sore and uncomfortable plus chapped crotch from taking evening primrose oil. Oh and heartburn. Mood: Ugh. Yesterday was terrible. The chapped crotch just got to be too much. The diaper rash cream just wasn't cutting it. I felt so bad because I was getting so annoyed with Seth simply because he was happy and I was not. I did NOT take the EPO last night. My doctor recommended it, but she also says that it's really important to do whatever you need to do to stay in a good place mentally. Diaper rash was doing nothing good for my mental state.
Total Weight Gain/Loss:I don't know. I imagine more than +25, but I really don't want to find out.
Maternity clothes:Yes, plus yoga pants and some of Seth's clothes. I look awesome.
Best moment of the week: Seeing Baby E at the growth scan. Next time I see him, he'll be an outside baby!
Movement: Still wild
Food cravings/aversions: Nothing in particular. I did buy a six pack of beer though. To be enjoyed after Baby E is born, of course.
Labor signs:Same as last week. I may have had some very mild real contractions last night, but they didn't last or wake me up and I haven't felt any today (just the BH). I will be so annoyed if the motherfucking EPO hasn't done anything to my cervix. It probably hasn't it. I only used it six days.
What I miss:Not having a fire crotch.
What I am looking forward to:Not having a fire crotch. And Baby E's due date!
Milestones: Baby E is considered full term today! Showing yet: Please excuse my "outfit". I'll put pants on eventually, but you know how I feel about real clothes on Sundays.
