|This is what a sleepless night looks like!|
How far along? 35w 4d.
Size of Esme? About 18.75 inches and weighs about 5.75 lbs. The size of a crenshaw melon.
Movement? Our JJB is living up to her reputation. She's squirmy all the time (active for more of the day than inactive).
Miss Anything? Oh my...traveling. Usually David and I would just be getting back from some amazing trip right now. Morocco was in the cards for this year but that's on hold for awhile. I'm noticeably antsy with being unable to quickly move around and visit new and exciting places that blow my mind. However, in a month or so, Esme will arrive and give us the MOST mind blowing experience we've ever had.
Best moments this week? Finding out Esme moved into a head down position and the risk of C-section is reduced.
Taking an aquafit class at the gym with a bunch of great-grandmothers. They are the cutest women ever. I love all the stories the like to tell me which are very helpful, positive and sweet.
Friday morning David and I had an anniversary breakfast at Betty's Tea Rooms. If you've ever been there, you'd understand why it was the best part of my week. Mmmm.
Saturday, we decoupaged the drawers to Esme's dresser (David measured and cut, you know, the manly part of decoupage). We only have a little bit of painting left and it will be finished. We will hopefully finish that today and I can add some photos.
Sleep? Here and there. Naps are wonderful.
Baby's position? Head down (YAHOOOOO!!) and ready for the world.
Food cravings? Cereal and blended slushies. In particular, I'm really loving blended virgin margaritas (hold the salt).
Anything making you queasy or sick? Laying on my back.
Labor Signs? No. But I've been having intermittent period like cramps a few times a day for a few days. I don't know what labor is supposed to feel like but it seems like my body is practicing. The pain doesn't happen often so I don't worry about it...yet.
Symptoms? Swelling, numbness in my hands, incredibly sore wrists (I can hardly use my hands at all!), waddling and HEARTBURN.
