Today marks 37 weeks, which means we have a full term baby! Although i still have 3 more long weeks before my official due date, if he arrived at any point from now on they say he would be healthy. I am now visiting the doc every week, and this last week they checked me to see if i was dilated at all- and i’m not. They also did the strep test and we find out this week if he has it, i guess its a virus or something that 30% of us carry on our skin and its not dangerous to us, but it is to babies so if he has it they give him antibiotics at delivery.
At this point in the pregnancy i find myself very very hungry. Like eat two dinners hungry. I am so uncomfortable, seriously all this extra weight in one area takes its toll. I hate hate hate to bend over to pick anything up, its the worst. I can tell the little guy isn’t so little anymore and he’s feeling squished, his movements have slowed slightly due to the lack of space. I find myself eating two tums before bed every night, just in case, and i usually can sleep through the night just fine, which is such a blessing, i know. Matty is the best, he’s always helping me with whatever needs to be done, from laying flooring and redoing our whole basement to changing light bulbs and hanging photos. Love that man, Lord knows that my emotions haven’t been the easiest to deal with in the last few weeks. I blame it all on the pregnancy…
Below is a pic of the Roy’s Chocolate Souffle i made tonight. It was SO delicious, it doesn’t look exactly like theirs, but it tasted really really close. SO yum! just what this pregnant lady needed, a good dose of chocolate!
Oh and on a side note- winter has fully arrived in Kansas City. The snow is horrendous, as usual, and our little one gets so cold every time she goes outside, poor little thing. Here she is cuddled up inside Matty’s coat.
