5 weeks to go.. give or take 😉
The baby is currently the size of a one gallon jug of milk, or a baseball glove! He’s getting super big in there, and he’s moving a lot. It sometimes seems as though he is trying to get out already, but really he’s just running out of space (or womb… lolol get it?? :p ) Apparently, my uterus is 1000x it’s normal size, which seems like a really big number.
I’ve been feeling pretty good! Not quite ready, but getting there. I am still having difficulty staying asleep. Last night, I was up like 4 or 5 times to use the bathroom. It’s so not fun, but apparently it’s to get my body used to waking up frequently once the baby comes. Who knows if that’s actually accurate though. Overall, I just feel so large! Especially when you compare my belly now, to how big I was at 35 weeks last time (picture below). I am SO much bigger this time! Probably due to a combination of it being my second pregnancy, and the fact that it’s a different pregnancy in general. I just am really feeling pretty giant. Although, it seems to be all in my belly. I’m still able to wear a lot of my pre-pregnancy pants and leggings, without being very uncomfortable, so I can’t complain about that.
My rings are still on my left hand, but my claddah ring doesn’t fit anymore on my right, which is pretty normal for how my pregnancies go. No stretch marks, and my belly button is still an innie! This week, we’re going for a tour at the birthing centre, and I’m pretty excited for it. I’m also pretty excited for my husband getting the chance to meet my midwife. It’ll be an exciting appointment!
