Baby, Baby: 38 Week (and FINAL) Bumpdate

The Kidlets

How Far Along?
38 weeks... and this is the last bumpdate!  We meet our Princess and Prince in 2 days!

One girl, one boy.

How big are they? 
According to the apps... they're each as long as a leek or Swiss chard, and as big as a spaghetti squash, a pumpkin, or a "big cabbage."  We'll know in a few days exactly how big they are!!

Changing Momma

Have you started showing yet?
Barely... ;-)

Weight Gain?
I lost almost 2 pounds in the last 2 weeks, so I'm only up a total of 31 pounds.

Maternity Clothes?

Stretch Marks?
They're impressive!

Belly Button In or Out?
Barely out :-)

Momma's Feeling

Spicy, and cheeseburgers...

Anything making you queasy or sick?
Just hormones...

Happy or Moody Most of the Time?
Fairly moody! 

A fair amount... they're both pretty low and head-down, so movement feels weird...

Not really happening...

What I Miss:
Sleep, caffeine... things that give you pep, apparently ;-)

Other Symptoms:
Lots of Braxton Hicks contractions, break-through heartburn, stretching, aching, swelling... the usual!

Highlights and Coming Soon

Best Moment of the Week:
Being handed a paper with my induction date and time written at the top!
Looking Forward To:
Meeting these little people on Monday (or Tuesday)!!!

Doctor's Appointments:
Both NSTs went great.  At Thursday's cervix check, I wasn't dilated, but I'm about 50% effaced.  So we discussed going to the hospital on Sunday night (tooooomorrow!) and how I'll be induced.  We'll be using a foley bulb for dilation tomorrow night, then starting pitocin slowly Monday morning.
