Bumpdate // 38 Weeks

Two more weeks and we’re at FULL TERM y’all! I have one week (and that’s really just 3 days) left of work and I’m on my maternity leave.  It’s getting real and I’m definitely ready to NOT be pregnant anymore.  And don’t get me wrong, I’m also really excited to meet this new little guy, but I’m reeeaaaally ready to not be pregnant anymore.  It’s also very possible that this could be my last bumpdate! (WHAT?!)  If RC comes a few days early like big brother, and since I do these biweekly, there could be an extra little person in the next post.  We’ll see!

Physically, how do you feel?
Pretty much the same.  Nothing fits and my feet and ankles are starting to swell.  All the normal, end of pregnancy stuff.

Definitely not sleeping much, little bouts here and there.  Not like my body needs to get used to sleeping anymore anyway!

RC’s movement?
Still rolling around in there!  We’ve also graduated to rib kicks.  Luckily, at 38 weeks, this is much later than when Mr. G started the rib karate. RC still gets the hiccups quite a bit, even so much that one of my classes was able to see them once!

How’s the nursery coming along?
Did you get to see it?!  If you missed it, check out the nursery reveal post HERE.

Any new cravings/aversions?
The only thing I’m craving is my first meal after baby!  I’ve told just about everyone that all I want is a turkey and cheese sub.  I don’t care where it comes from, I just want a deli sandwich.  And if you’re wondering why that sounds so delicious, it’s because I’ve been restricted from deli meat, as all pregnant women are urged to be, do to a bacteria called listeria.  Very harmful for a growing baby in the womb, not so much for adults and kids.

How’s Mr. G doing?
Mr. G is doing very well!  He’s back in preschool now, three days a week, and he’s having great days!  It makes me so happy to know that he’s doing well in his school environment, even though I know that may change for a little bit with little brother’s arrival, but his teachers know and have gone through it themselves.

Another thing that’s happened lately is that Mr. G has really gravitated toward daddy.  He wants to do just about everything with daddy rather than mommy these days and that will also be a huge help.  We were worried for a little while when he was attached to me, wouldn’t even let daddy do anything at bedtime.  Now, it’s “no girls allowed” most of the time!

Are you expecting?  I’d love to hear about how you’re feeling and what you’re experiencing, no matter if it’s your first or your 15th!

XO, Kelly

    First of all, you look adorable. Second, YES to the deli sandwich! I told my husband that the only thing I want after delivering (I'm due in November) is a Beach Club from Jimmy John's. I really don't even eat sandwiches that much in regular life, but I think because deli meat is restricted, I've been craving them like crazy. Hoping for a very safe and easy delivery for you and your new little guy!
