Oops, I forgot to take a picture for this week! The past week has been pretty interesting. I’m starting to wonder if Baby Deuce will be ready earlier than her scheduled date of arrival…
Anyway, this week we get to meet the finalists for the next Mamavation Mom campaign, and I can’t wait to see who they are! Good luck to all of the applicants!
Here’s my update, as I’m now in my 35th week with Baby Deuce:
How far along? 35 weeks
Cravings: Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked Ice Cream
Aversions: All vegetables, eggs, beef
Feeling? On Thursday morning, I experienced two hours of regular contractions that were 4-5 minutes apart and took my breath away. My doctor told me to come in and shortly after I got hooked up to the monitor, the contractions became irregular. At 34.5 weeks, I was happy they became irregular…but at the same time, that always makes me feel a little bit silly when the contractions stop being regular as soon as I get to the doctor! It happened twice with C, but much later (including two days before he was finally born – at 40+ weeks). I continue to have strong, irregular contractions that take my breath away, as well as loads of mild ones.
What I’m looking forward to: Having this baby! I hope she stays put for a couple more weeks, but would welcome her gladly if she wants to come before May 6!
What I miss: Being active in any way without contractions. I can’t even walk to the parking lot without having contractions anymore.
What was the BEST part of last week? Honestly, I don’t know. Last week was kind of rough (see next question).
What was the WORST part of last week? Hubster worked long hours last week while interviewing job candidates, which made it difficult for me to “take it easy,” like the doctor told me to do. C’s been sick for over two weeks and it turns out he has an ear infection. Poor kiddo!
Milestones: There are only four weeks left until my scheduled c-section. I’m working on getting all of the last-minute preparations done for Baby Deuce’s arrival, considering all of the contractions I’m already experiencing.
